SquareMeal Review of
Thai Thai East
Tucked away near Old Street station, Thai Thai East is a handy destination for hip socialistas and local connoisseurs of the cuisine. Spread over two floors, it’s lavishly decorated with ruby and
vanilla-coloured walls, carved artefacts, potted palms and a dazzling stained-glass ceiling – perfect for the fashionable types who drop in to eat before drinking and dancing the night away.
Popular calls from the extensive menu include crispy soft-shell crabs with salted chillis, roast duck with tamarind, and red pumpkin curry with a choice of meats, while desserts such as
coconut-coated banana fritters with coconut ice cream and honey syrup go down well with a refreshing strawberry mule (vodka, strawberries, lime and ginger beer). Express lunches (£9.95 for two
courses) are just the job for busy workers, and the restaurant also does takeaways.
