1 Love It
A short walk from Charlton station gets you to this diminutive establishment no larger than a living room, where daring diners will relish the chance to cross continents in one meal. It was run as a Spanish restaurant for nearly a decade, but the new Thai owners now serve a range of eastern nibbles (prawn toast, fish cakes, satay chicken) alongside standard tapas fodder such as jamon serrano, calamares and boquerones. The Thai mains are good: we opted for a deliciously rich and spicy phed phad cha: sliced duck breast with red peppers, fresh chilli and a sprinkling of Thai basil. Desserts run from the likes of banana fritters to chocolate-dipped churros or fresh mango with sweet rice and coconut cream.

It's very hard indeed to find Thai cuisine of this high standard, and I've never found this combination of quality and friendliness anywhere else.
