When Sherin Alexander, their Executive Director invited me to one of their promotional evenings, I knew that the food would be spectacular. The occasion, to celebrate the opening of their terrace overlooking the River Thames, was fortunately on one of those rare warm evenings.
This was my first visit to the restaurant since it moved from Fulham Broadway. Canapés and bubbly were on tap together with Mai Tai cocktails and Thai street food served from stalls set up on their terrace.
At the soup stall, with its huge cauldron of broth, we picked ingredients from an array of food – noodles, meats, and spices, to make up our own recipe. Other stalls proffered fresh oysters, spicy salads, and an enormous array of sweeties. A continuous flow of finger food, tasters from their menu, Thai fishcakes, spring rolls, pork dim sum and satay, all accompanied with tasty dips, kept us from being hungry.
Lovers of Thai food will not come away disappointed. Tasting menus are around £45 – £50 based on a minimum of two people. However, there is a 20% discount for take-away. Sunday brunch is £30.00 per person.
