ooks wise, it's a Wagamamas on a budget. Shared tables, light woods and smiling bustling servers. There's nothing particularly authentic about the way it looks, but it's become a fairly regular go-to spot when visiting Angel, and having recently visited the Clapham branch, I thought I'd proffer comment on the pair of them.
The menu is relatively extensive, covering a range of Thai and Viet dishes. As well as the standard noodle dishes (both pho and pad Thai make an appearance) they've a range of char grilled meats, some really interesting curries and stews - I can particularly recommend the Tamarind Spiced Aubergine curry - and some less interesting sounding regional specialities, I've never been fussed enough to try their sweet and sour chicken. All of these categories come as a Banana Tree main course, served almost as an Inochine thali with a small portion of glass noodles, jasmine rice, prawn crackers and a side of spicy corn cakes - a great option for a swift and inexpensive lunch.
