Want to know the secret to getting tasty thai food for a tasty price? Go for lunch.
From 12pm to 4pm everyday, Tarn Thai offers an Express Lunch for £6.50 or Set Meal for £9.50 (which includes one extra course, plus tea or coffee). Pretty good right? And the food is just as great. Just ask Cliff Richard – he ate there only last month.
The mains range from curries to stir fries to noodles too, each labelled by level of spice so there’s something to tickle everyone’s taste buds.
It’s a fine place for a date too: sleek decoration influenced by Thai culture, relaxed atmosphere and indulgently comfy sofa chairs (though I wouldn’t recommend ordering noodles on your first date – things could get messy).
My recommendations? Go in a group and order a few dishes between you because hey, sharing is caring. My personal favourite was the Gai Hor Bai Teuy (chicken marinated with garlic, pepper & honey, wrapped in pandan leaves) to start and the stir-fried beef in oyster sauce. If I went again, I would definitely try the Son In Law’s Eggs (Deep-fried boiled eggs, topped with caramelised tamarind sauce).
