Kiln in Soho does not serve your usual Thai restaurant dishes like pad thai noodles and green curry. Instead, they serve regional Thai food, using whatever fresh local produce they can get.
The portions are on the small side, each costing between £7 and £9 each. It’s one of those places where it’s best you go in a group, and order the whole menu so you can try everything!
Apparently the menu changes regularly.
- Langoustines with kaffir lime and mint : great flavour, but a bit too fiddly to eat
- Lamb & cumin skewers : juicy & cumin-y pieces of lamb, grilled to perfection
- Smoked sausage with tumeric : again, full of flavour, and grilled to perfection
- Slow grilled chicken & soy : it’s now clear these guys know how to grill their stuff!
- Clay pot baked glass noodles with pork belly & brown crab meat : I had high expectations with this dish, but turned out to be a bit of a let down. I couldn’t actually spot any pork belly or crab meat in here.
- Mackerel dry red curry : great flavour, with lots of garlic chives. Yum!
- Southern style dry pork curry : one of my favourite dishes of the meal!
- Pork shoulder curry : this was my top favourite dish for the night (although I don’t think anyone else thought it was super amazing, lol)
- Burmese style brisket curry : again, flavoursome, with a hint of sweetness
- Griled mangalitsa pork : yum, yes, yum!
Sadly they did not yet start their dessert menu, but the waitress informed us it’s on the way. I have no doubt their dessert items will also be pretty damn amazing.
