This is a very nice restaurant, and I enjoyed my meal. I can never resist a tom yam soup, and this one was as I remember from my favourite 'greasy spoon' in Bangkok; rich, packed with flavour and right at the top of my (considerable) chili heat tolerance.
It was then perhaps a mistake to order the jungle curry (kaeng pa) because this is really too similar to the tom yam. Again, it was packed with real herbs. However, it was rather austere, and lacked balancing sweetness. Now I hate overly sweet Thai food for the British palate, but I reckon the chef simply left out the palm sugar in this dish. So next time, I'd probably go for a trusty massaman curry.
Portion size was generous; there were a few desultory carved vegetables around, but not with my dishes. Oh, and there was a portion of free kropok. My two courses and a beer came to £21.
