Our Aim: To expand the palates of London folk when it comes to Thai food.

For years, Thai food in London Has been dumbed-down and dull. Typically rich and sweet, and served out of chain restaurants and supermarket aisles, like boring and bland Pad Thai or Green Chicken Curry.

It's everything we stand against.

Our flavours come from Northern Thailand - Chiang Mai - which are entirely different, punchier and much more complex, with international notes from neighbouring countries Laos, Myanmar (Burma) and China.

Food and service were amazing. If you go, get the yellow curry! If you’re taking a date and want to know if they share food. This is the place to go, unless you’re dating a Joey.

Visited on Saturday with our 2 girls (6 and 9) at 5.30 . The welcoming feeling was instantaneous. Richard was equally welcoming and friendly. Our table was ready straight away - although we found that we were lucky to get booked. Eloise was our waitress and nothing was too much trouble - despite all of our questions about the dishes!! There are a various selection of dishes but not too many to be overwhelming. We tried the mild chicken curry (mainly for the girls), buttermilk chicken (sauce on the side not on top), brother in laws eggs, the beef penang (I think), clams from the specials board all with sticky rice and jasmine rice . Absolutely lovely !!!! Chef Paul is a star !!! We ordered drinks but there is also a constantly refreshed supply of mint water brought to the table - nice touch. What with the ambient background music - a gem of a place - highly recommend . Was pleasantly surprised to find the on street parking charges were only Monday to Friday - a big bonus!

Loved it here - had wanted to come for a while after following these guys on Instagram for months and it didn't disappoint! Everything tasted really fresh and authentic, it was really nice to get a different flavour of Thailand to the standard Thai restaurants. All the staff were really helpful and it was a nice cozy space to have dinner on a cold Friday evening. Will definitely be back!

We had 4 dishes in total. Loved the Kra Pow pork and Fried Chicken. We weren't fans of the yellow curry or prawn starter and thought they lacked flavour.

Overall good and I'd give it another go.

Very helpful and friendly staff (I think one of the owners was ‘hosting’. I tried two local northern Thai dishes that I know from my Thai cookbook that I’ve always wanted to try. One thing is that we craved a bit more veg than what was on offer - the meat dishes were very meaty. There was one salad and one veg curry, I think that was it. But all in all - Super Delicious food, relaxed atmosphere, will come again.

Delicious Thai food. Very reasonably priced. Cute and cozy environment. Extremely accommodating for gluten intolerant and dairy intolerant people. They called on the day of our booking to advise me on what was gluten and dairy free along with amending the buttermilk fried chicken to dairy free fried chicken - which was still tasty AF!!! 100% recommend and we’ll will be back there very soon.

Nice small pop up with a different menu offering a small but good selection of options. The service was very good and I liked the ambience, particularly the lovely incense. Although the food was very tasty I can't say I wasn't disappointed with the small portion sizes. When the mains were placed down in front of us I thought there had been a mix up and they were starters but this was not the case. On top of this I do think £4.50 for a small can of beer is quite steep, I was expecting a glass bottle for this price and although the cocktail was again very tasty, the glass it came in was very small and filled with ice which meant it was gone in a few meagre sips. Having said all of this, what we did get was delicious, I just personally can't get on board with places that dish out small portions and would have loved MORE of everything!

We absolutely loved KraPow - I can't wait to go back again. Everything we ordered was delicious- super fresh, fragrant, spicy, but never over-done. Some of the most delicious Thai food I have ever had. Dishes that were at once familiar and very different from the standard fare on offer in London. So.So.Good.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. A really nice casual atmosphere that manages to be both chilled and buzzy at once. Love it.

Love this place and I'm v lucky that its so local to me. The food is not like your normal Thai as not sweet which i hate, but sour, spicy and salty.. depending on what you have. The fried chicken is divine as is their signature Krapow moo which is a must. They have started to do specials too do do order from the specials. There was only one dish we ordered from the special that i personally found a bit too salty . We had ordered the fried chicken.. the spicy pork mince..if that's on the specials board please order, a pork curry which i personally found too salty, fried rice with chicken
The house cocktail is delicious and exotic.
Total bill for 2 with drinks and service was £55 which is not bad considering the quality of the food.

The atmosphere is cosy and the staff engaging.

I hope they become a permanent fixture in Chatsworth road.
Give these guys a try. You won't be disappointed

Lovely food in a local restaurant, good to have a little gem like this on Chatsworth Road.
Good value food and reasonable sized portions for what we ordered. Bottle of house red was reasonably priced, but at 14.5% abv it was a little stronger than expected for a house wine!
