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.
Tasty food that’s reasonably priced .
Warm feel about the place and friendly staff
Thanks so much for the review and feedback
Poor service, food too salty and overloaded with chilli. Noisy loud and packed in.
We're really sorry about your poor experience. We were short on staff the evening you dined with us, and your feedback on the food has been given to the kitchen. Apologies again.
Best Thai food in London hands down!!
Thanks so much for the review and feedback, hope to see you again soon!
Really delicious food and nice laid back atmosphere. Feels as close to authentic Thai food as you might find in London. Highly recommend.
We had a great time at Krapow - the food was very well executed, with some really interesting, fresh flavours. It’s a cute little spot
Thanks so much for the review and feedback, we hope to see you again soon!
Best Thai food anywhere- getting close to best food anywhere!
Fabulous food, fabulous service! So lucky to have this authentic northern Thai restaurant on our doorstep!
Thanks so much for the review and feedback, we love being E5 locals, and hope to see you again soon!
Relaxed and friendly local restaurant, with delicious different Thai food.
Thanks so much for the review, hope to see you again.
The food is authentic, the ambience is nice, the concept is good. However, price seems really good on the menu, but the portions are rather small.
Thanks for the feedback, which is something we will discuss further when reviewing the menu. Whilst we do operate a 'street food' concept we do strive to use quality (& more expensive) ingredients, both local (meat and produce) and also our imported Asian produce, which may be an explanation for the smaller than expected portion sizes. We hope to see you again.
Excellent all round.. food and drink were simply wonderful!!
Nice small restaurants with an interesting menu consisting of Thai dishes from Northern Thailand.
All dishes were cooked and served nicely.
Thanks so much for the review and taking the time to leave a comment. Hopefully see you again soon.
the only place I have found in London which serves authentic Thai dishes superb
Thanks so much for the review and taking the time to leave a (much appreciated) comment. Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
Excellent food and nice people
Thanks so much for the review. Hopefully see you again soon! :)
Fantastic all round. Great food and service. Love it.
Thanks so much for the review, we look forward to having you back again soon!
This is an outstanding little Thai restaurant in Clapton. The food is so well cooked, the flavours and spices are exceptionally balanced, and the food looks great. Can’t wait to return!
Thanks so much for the review and taking the time to leave a comment. We can't wait to have you back! :)
Food and service were fantastic! We will definitely be coming back. We visited on Thursday and the restaurant was packed. Really enjoyed the beef panang and buttermilk fried chicken
Thanks so much, look forward to hosting you again soon.
Lovely place and food overall was very good with a few proviso's Werent made aware all the dishes starters and main were all coming together would have preferred a starter/main course service
Not the biggest dishes but then the prices werent high so no real complaints but if you are a hunger beaver take note.
The starter i had was overally salty (veg stir fry "starter") though the veg were lovely
My partner had pork mince as one of the dishes, not recommended
Chicken coconut soup was really good though as was the fried chicken
Bonus- House white wine was really good
Will be back but maybe more careful about what we order
Thanks for visiting & taking the time to leave a review. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the restaurant and some of our dishes, and even the house white! The menu does state that dishes are served 'once ready', as this type of service is common practice at the Asian table. Our menu is designed for sharing so we look to avoid the 'entree/starters' & 'mains' service commonly found with other cultures/cuisines. We'd love to host you again, we can recommended some less spicy/salty dishes. Thanks :)
Delicious food and great atmosphere - definitely coming back.
Thanks so much Kate, look forward to hosting you again soon!
Enjoyable dining experience. Was interesting to try new cuisine even if some dishes were too hot for my own taste. The owner was warm and welcoming and explained all dishes even providing lime and sugar to ease the heat from the spice. Great local place excellent food and great value for money. Would definitely be back and recommend to others.
Thanks Jason, great to host you! Hopefully we'll see soon soon - we have some less spicy dishes on the menu for you to try next :)
AMAZING FOOD, STAFF, ATMOSPHERE!
Thanks so much for the lovely review! Hopefully see you again soon Jessica! :)
Great food - nice people - will definitely go again
Thanks so much Allan, hopefully see you again soon!
Fab food can testify after just coming back from Thailand
Thanks so much Emily! See you again when you need your Thai food fix! :)
Amazing food and lovely friendly service, what more could you want!
Thanks so much Emma! We'll hopefully see you again soon.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Not my first time here and certainly not my last!
We LOVE hosting you Laura, we'll see you again soon ;) xx
Delicious food and amazing service, I highly recommend! Can’t wait to go back!
Thanks so much Lily, look forward to hosting you again soon! :)
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.
Thanks so much Pedro, we'll hopefully see you again soon!
Great food, great value. We went on Sunday afternoon with two children and it was all very easy.
A really chilled restaurant with amazing food and service..loved it!
Thanks so much! :) We'll hopefully see you again soon.
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!
Gorgeous food, really nice atmosphere and great service. . . what more could you ask for!
Always a pleasure.
The best thai food I've ever had. Fantastic service and great atmosphere!
I found the food outstanding and it blew me away how something that simple can taste sooo good. it not your typical Thai food. I did not personally pay for the meal. I found it decent price :)
Absolutely delicious - those eggs!! mmmmmm! Would highly recommend
Great food in a small pop up.
Amazing, tucked away in Homerton, lovely staff, attentive, cosy atmosphere, good food and prices. Menu is eclectic and good value. Drinks on trend. Make a booking and enjoy the taste and ambiance. Well worth the trip.
The food was really good and the so was the decor. It's a cosy little place in Homerton. If you want to have some delicious Thai in a humble setting, I'd recommend.
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!
So glad you made it, and thanks for the feedback! Really look forward to hosting you again sometime soon.
Beautiful food, even a great selection when you are trying to eat healthy. Great service, I will definitely be back to try more of the menu
Thanks so much, we look forward to seeing you again!
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.
