When we headed to Covent Garden, we weren't planning on eating out. So when we got a little caught up in the buzz of the place and heard our stomachs grumbling, we were more than a little unprepared for the craziness that is a Saturday night in London town. All the good restaurants had long queues spilling out onto the street - what were we to do?

We had both been to a good Thai place right by Jamie's and Cantina Laredo before, and knowing it has lots of seating across two floors, we headed in to try our luck. Thank goodness, we were quite early so bagged ourselves a table upstairs.

We do love our Thai food, as evidenced by the many appearances of Thai curry on the blog. While E stuck to the classic Green Chicken Curry (can't blame him, it's my favourite too), I decided to branch out a little and got the Sea Bass with red curry sauce.

We also shared these summer rolls (probably not called that in Thai cuisine, but no matter) filled with veg and beef.

E is a good sport and has learnt not to complain much when I whip out the camera at any given moment!

Our mains were great. I loved the fish, although sliiiightly overcooked (but I'm very fussy with fish), the coconut rice more than made up for it, as did the sauce. E devoured his curry and we were both very happy campers.

If you're stuck in the area on a busy night and looking for somewhere good without a 45 minute wait, I would suggest this place as they have a lot of seating, and a little more tucked in that people notice it less! I can attest to the deliciousness of their Pad Thai too, we both had it before and loved it. And no one dislikes Pad Thai, I'm quite sure.


  1. So I'm thinking you should probably do some sort of OOTD post because I am really dying to see the rest of that outfit. That top looks SO PRETTY, I love the neckline! And as always your food photography is incredible. I wish I lived closer so I could actually go to the places you recommend. I love Thai food too, and curry is my favorite as well!

  2. I love thai and always looking for a good new place, this looks delicious! x

  3. Looks amazing! I've popped this on my Cov Gdn list of places to eat, always a tough one scouting out new places to eat there. (:

  4. I just can't find thai food here! I have not tasted those sweet sweet delicacies and it's like draining my energy whenever I see those pictures (of Thai food), I am sad.... :(
    Love your outfit! It's so feminine and classy!

  5. Mmm that looks delicious! I wish there was such a diverse range of restaurants where I live. At least I get to drool at your photographs!

    B xx

  6. I adore Pad Thai and this meal looks pretty lovely. A shame about the slightly overcooked fish (I'm as fussy as you!) but otherwise looks like a good dining choice to me!

  7. Oh wow, those summer rolls look divine. Ever since I first tried them in Pho (in Soho) a couple of years ago I have been obsessed with them. I love how you can get them in M&S and Waitrose now, but the Tesco ones aren't very good.
    Anyway, this restaurant looks really good. I'm going to London for new year's eve so I'm compiling a list of possible places to visit and review :)

  8. This looks delicious!

    I've never heard of this place before, but definitely a place I'm going to try out for my Thai food fix x

  9. Ooooh I'm a sucker for pad thai! I always get it whenever it's on the menu. I've had some experiences where the pad thai wasn't all that in some restaurants... But when it's done right; holy moly it's sooooo gooood!


Thank you for visiting and commenting! I'd love to hear from you.
