The amount of decent Thai fare has been increasing exponentially in Tokyo in recent years, and this latest Shinsen restaurant is one of the latest. Inspired by the flavours of Thailand northeastern Isan region, you'll find half a grilled bird (kai yang), spicy country-style som tam, and herb-steamed chicken on the menu. Everything is a nod to the fiery yet simple dishes of rural Thailand, and especially to the diet of an Isan man. Apparently, it's common for men in Isan to be the best person in their village to bring out the flavours in the food. To stay true to their roots, the spice has been piled on here too, but if you're not sure you can handle the heat, you can always ask for it to be toned down a bit.
