South-east Asian diner taking inspiration from Thailand, Malaysia, China and more, with a good line in cocktails.
At the far end of the Argyle Street gourmet strip,this Malay, Thai and Cantonese inspired spot is super chic - as you’d expect from a Finneston address - with hip metro tiling, dark walls and leather chesterfield style seating in the dining space, and a cocktail bar in the basement.
Diners are encouraged to choose multiple dishes to share, reflecting cultural eating practices across Asia, and happily, there are plenty of great items to choose from including tasty skewers of rich peanut satay or Tiger salad - laden with green chillies, tangy and sharp in a rice wine vinegar and sesame oil dressing. Son-in-law eggs are crisp on the outside yet soft and velvety inside all drizzled in sweet tamarind. Curries include a minced chicken and Kohlrabi jungle curry - the hottest item on the menu - which although certainly fiery, is not overpowering - rather the kind of pleasant hot that makes lips tingle and cheeks glow. This is a proud zero waste company careful to use eco friendly products - so patrons can be confident in eating good food with a good conscious.
