I came here on Saturday night with a friend before catching a film at Vue Islington. It's only a few steps away from Angel station and relatively close to the theatre, so ideal for a quick bite.

I wish I could've liked this place, but wow is it not good. It's not even real Thai - it's just mediocre and not worth a trip.

We took some cocktails to start with, my Lychee mojito was refreshing...more
