"We didn’t order everything: we had five dishes between us, as the menu directed. A pomelo salad with cashew and chilli lime dressing, was the kind of dish you could eat for every meal, every day, for the rest of your life, and live to be 125." READ REVIEW

"The food here may lack the lively complexity of flavour you'd expect in Thailand, but this is Peckham, and most customers will probably appreciate the kitchen using chilli in polite moderation." READ REVIEW
