Squaremeal Review of Pepper Tree ?

Pepper Tree’s canteen-style seating and hangar-like decor aren’t exactly conducive to a leisurely meal. Besides, the people queuing in the doorway waiting for a table make diners who have finished feel distinctly uncomfortable. Nevertheless, this remains an excellent refuelling stop for the busy people coming out of the Tube station on their way home from work, or grabbing a bite before going to the cinema. The menu is a fairly extensive list of Thai and Chinese favourites: usually pretty well-cooked and well-portioned, and delivered quickly. The spices may have been tempered somewhat for the British market, but the pork dim sum, stir fries and the aptly named Big Tum noodles are still appetising, especially as they’re cheap as chips.

Food is cheap and cheerful in this high punter rotation Thai restaurant on Clapham Common. The food is simple and quick. The owner is charming and knows how to run a restaurant where people are coming for quick cheap grub in order to talk about their trip to Thailand X summers ago. What would make this place a little better is if ti was BYOB. The restaurant is open plan with rows of benches where people sit a la Wagamama's. There is a lively buzz and easy view into the busy kitchen. The menu is...

    The Food Connoisseur :: The Pepper Tree – No frills Thai Canteen

    Before attending the Greece Mount Athos event in Clapham. I stopped by The Pepper Tree on the long stretch of road for a quick bite. The Pepper Tree has been popping up on my radar for a long time. With my ex-colleagues recommending it, and foodies from around London mentioning the place.

    Recently the place has been refurbished and is under new management. This place is made to be all squished together with long communal tables, are filled throughout the whole restaurant. At the top end the open kitchen with manic cooks.

    In the latest Time Out listings The Pepper Tree was voted best restaurant in Clapham. With this in mind it would be remiss of me not to go and check it out.
    From the outside this Thai restaurant doesn’t look extraordinary but it is in a great location overlooking the southern end of Clapham Common. There is a cute seating area outside though, partitioned from the pavement with a low divider, nice for a cocktail or two I’m sure.
    The staff were welcoming on arrival and we were quickly seated at our table. It is communal dining here, long tables and benches, reminiscent of street food traders in Thailand. The...
