“This cute little Leather Lane restaurant takes its name from the Thai word for ‘eat’. Its menu, though, travels beyond Thai borders to showcase dishes from Japan, Malaysia, China and Vietnam.
Expect, then, chicken katsu curries and miso soup alongside bun cha, hoisin duck spring rolls, som tam salads, nasi goreng, tom yum gung soups, green chicken curry and pork pad krapao – a classic Thai comfort dish of stir-fried minced pork with Thai basil, chillies, onions, green beans and peppers.
The drinks list combines a few old world wines with drinks that geographically match the pan-Asian food – think bottles of Asahi, Chang, Singha and Saigon, various teas and strong, sweet Vietnamese coffee.”
