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.

A local Gem - Fabulous local Thai and Tapas bar, great food, Beer and Wine always a warm welcome from the Owner Nittaya
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.
