You'll find Thai Metro along quaint and food-filled Charlotte Street. It's not the only Thai on the road, but its great value, speedy service, and fab Lunch Express menu available from 1pm - 5pm Monday - Friday, keeps customers coming back.
This menu offers one course for £6.85, or if you have a bit of spare change and are feeling particularly hungry, two courses are just £8.85.
Myself and a friend shared two Thai classics between us. One big plate of chicken pad Thai, packed with ground peanuts, flat noodles and plenty of fresh vegetables, including some particularly juicy spring onions. And a generous bowl of Thai red chicken curry, tangy from lime and fresh ginger, and with a mound of sticky and spicy coconut rice.
The bright and airy restaurant has plenty of seating both inside and out, with Buddha statues helping with the relaxed and chilled out vibe. A great spot for lunch or an early weekday dinner.
