Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The fifth branch of a chain that began with Rosa's in Spitalfields.
This informal Thai restaurant comes from a group now with seven venues in London. It all began from a Brick Lane street food stall back in 2008, which proved so successful a restaurant proper in Spitalfields swiftly followed. This one, just off Upper Street, is the group's fifth.
The focus is on accessible Thai dishes, with some less-known options thrown in, too. Expect, then, dishes such as green, red and massaman curries, pad Thai noodles, tom yum soups and papaya salads alongside northern-style spicy sausage and special menus showcasing dishes from different regions from across Thailand.
The drink selection ranges from a short wine list to Chang beer, Thai whisky coffee and cocktails such as a kaffir and lime toreador and a blackberry and tamarind rum punch. Thai iced teas, Monmouth coffee and chilled lemongrass infusions also feature.
