SquareMeal Review of Montien Thai Cuisine

Workers on their way home from the office have long been lured into making a detour towards Montien. A meal here is no grand event: this is a neighbourhood Thai café with a run-of-the-mill menu, & its looks are no great shakes. However, the food is fresh, the cooking is honest, & the prices are keen. Most customers stop by for a quick supper of pad thai noodles, Thai fishcakes or one of the classic curries. Some decide to make a night of it & meet for a chinwag in the basement dining room with a mate. The soulless upstairs room tends to be strictly for those waiting for their takeaways.

This is a hidden gem which outshines many more glitzy and pricey Kew and Richmond eateries (in my view its easily the best Thai in the area). Its understated but the food is superb – with its lady chef/owner taking a keen interest in the quality of everything. Eat, enjoy – but please don't spread the word too widely!
