Based on word-of-mouth, booked a table a while back and finally made it here. We tried to order the whole menu. But failed.

Dishes we would definitely order again:

Grilled chicken leg

Whole sea bass (every single time)

3. Ask a waiter what you should...more

Som Saa, Shoreditch - For me, Som Saa is not just another Thai restaurant. I knew Andy Oliver in his days in Nahm at The Halkin Hotel, a fine dining Thai restaurant. When that was closed, I followed Andy's cooking from pop up events at Climpson's Arch and The Begging Bowl to now, an established brick and mortar restaurant.
