Jane-Tira. 28 Brewer St, Soho, London W1F 0SR

This Brewer Street Thai is perhaps best known for its mackerel curry. It's their take on a traditional dish from Phuket, with enough chilli heat to bring a glass of milk to tears. It's definitely one best left to the brave.

Outside of that hot little number the menu's a mix of well-known crowd-pleasers (jungle curry, massaman lamb, tom yum kung, green curry) and dishes such as larb gai (north-eastern-style minced chicken salad) drunkhead chicken noodles (a hangover cure, apparently) and the intriguing son-in-law balls – deep-fried boiled eggs with sweet and sour tamarind sauce. Sounds painful.

There's a short wine list, as well as beers from Chang, Singha, Kirin Ichiban and Meantime. Both of the two cocktails on offer are made with MeKhong Thai rum.

This is a gem of a Thai restaurant in central London. The menu is just the right length so you won't feel swamped. I went back recently and the food is still delicious and still cheap. We went about dinner time and the atmosphere was just right, not empty and no eye-wateringly long queues. The mackerel curry though - that will induce the tears.

Good service, delicious food, good value for money. I had a tofu red curry with coconut rice and it was delicious.

It's not in Chinatown, but it IS a great little Thai restaurant. Good prices for Soho. Their Thai Green Curry is great...a solid option for a low-key mid-week dinner.
