The Thai Crystal restaurant in the outer-London suburb of Croydon is well known for its authentic food and welcoming atmosphere. Previously known as Nim’s Kitchen, this comfortable, unpretentious restaurant boasts some of the most helpful, friendly service in the area, the traditionally attired staff always happy to help with even the most complex of orders. Thai Crystal’s interior is very much representative of traditional British Thai restaurants, combining modern furnishings and colour schemes with Asian artefacts aplenty and an abundance of potted plants. Thai chefs with extensive experience of homeland cookery use quality, fresh ingredients in Thai Crystal’s food, avoiding any GM foods and MSG, using a natural approach to produce dishes with the authentic flavour found in carefully selected fresh herbs and spices. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Thai Crystal’s Lunch Express provides a family friendly and purse-happy way to sample the kitchen’s best dishes all priced at £6.95.
