Plaza Khao Gaeng delivers a true taste of Southern Thailand's diverse cuisine, offering a range of curries rich with fresh coconut milk, aromatic curry pastes, and fiery stir fries. The menu is inspired by popular Khao Gaeng (curry over rice) restaurants, and the dishes are designed for sharing, allowing you to sample a variety of flavors. Authentic dishes like kua-gling, wok-fried prawns with curry paste, and the spicy seafood gang som (orange curry) are highlights, and the Cha-Yen (Thai milk tea) is a refreshing accompaniment.

Recommended by

Tasty, authentic Southern Thai food in central London. Lukie Farrell’s flagship restaurant in JKS’ Arcade Foodhall serves up super tasty and probably one of the most authentic renditions of Southern Thai cooking in London. Think fiery, fragrant kua-gling, wok fried prawns with curry paste and sato beans, and sour and spicy seafood gang som (orange curry) that will make you sweat as though you’re sitting at a real road-side “Khao gaeng” shop in Phuket. Small-ish portions mean you can try lots of different dishes - the way it should be! - even just between two. Dont forget to order a jug of Cha-Yen (Thai milk tea) which is deliciously fragrant, refreshing and not so easy to find outside of Thailand.

Buzzy neighbourhood Thai from an ex Nahm chefThis busy spot in Peckham, South London is up there with any Thai restaurant in the city, in my opinion. Head chef Jane Alty used to work with David Thompson at Nahm in London, so it's hardly a surprise; they even source ingredients from fellow Nahm alumni Bo.lan in Bangkok. The menu explores the breadth of Thai regional cuisine and the cooking is consistently delicious. Deserves to be talked about much, much more.
