Just thinking of the name Som Saa makes our mouths water – one of the best Thais in town. This pop-up has been crowd-funded into a brilliant restaurant serving old school Thai with flair. Plentiful vegetarian options and especially good for spice lovers (see the papaya salad, som tam thai). Really good grilled aubergine can be adapted for vegans and there’s always a veggie curry to satisfy.
Best for a big group or casual date (it can be a bit noisy). Not exactly cheap, but reasonably priced for the quality served. As with many of the gooduns, it’s hard to get a table – bookings taken only for parties of six or more. But there are yummy cocktails to appease while you wait. It’s spicey delicious, we urge you to find an occasion to go!
