72 Highbury Park, Highbury East, London N5 2XE

Sebby Holmes earned his stripes at some of the best Thai restaurants in London, including Begging Bowl and a stint as head chef a the original (now closed) Smoking Goat in Soho. Now at Farang he’s cooking up modern Thai grub, with dishes like crispy duck wontons with plum dipping sauce;‘Miang’ – minced prawn in betel leaves; and braised beef cheeks with mustard greens. The weekend Drunken Noodle menu sounds pretty epic too, especially the eponymous ‘Drunken Noodles’ – a tea smoked duck breast stir-fried with pak choi, sweet basil, wild ginger, chilli, garlic and flat rice noodles.

After setting up shop in Soho, Shoreditch is now the place to come for smokey, BBQ Thai food inspired by the grub you’d get in late-night canteens in Bangkok. We love their freshly made rotis, goat krapow, turmeric crab curry and lardo fried rice. It’s all a world away from cheap pad thai and prawn crackers and has been part of a wave of restaurants that woke London up to proper Thai food.

You can expect super speedy service, a menu to suit those who love spice and everything nice and food served from brekkie to dinner. All bases covered. Tables are communal, it’s aptly decorated green and red (the colour of peppers, duh?!) but the best thing about this place is its value for money with big dishes of creamy curries, spicy stir-fried meats and steamy soups for under a tenner. For neighbourhood Thai dining in Clapham, it pays to go to The Pepper Tree…
