FARRINGDON | EC1
This small and welcoming family-run restaurant serves up fresh and tasty pan-Asian street food from across Asia, inspired by the travels of their family and friends. Expect a very popular stripped-back cafe with exposed bricks, wooden boards, wines and artisan teas.
The menu skips across Asia from Thailand and Vietnam, to Japan and China, and much of it hovers around our magic £8 mark at full price. But during weekday lunch hours, both their Thai green chicken curry and Thai red vegetable curry, are reduced from £8 to £5.
That's a mere fiver for a huge plate of ultra-filling chunky veg, soft chicken, tasty sauce, and rice. This is a great little spot to visit for comforting Asian food, whether at lunch or in the evening. And don't be surprised to find queues out the door during the former.
