It’s been a long while since travelling down to Thailand was a thing, but this brand-new 24-seater Thai-eatery – armed with an ice-cold fridge of Chang and Singha beers – is all about recreating that scene we sorely miss. Currently in soft-opening and set down the alley beside Pie Society, it channels the quick and easy charm of Thailand’s street-side spots, with southern staples like deep-fried spring rolls served with sweet chilli sauce, sautéed glass noodles and sharable appetisers like tender grilled pork neck and beef skewers. Crucially, there’s a banger of a pad Thai (seafood or chicken) that you’ll polish off in minutes.
