Delicious, no-frills, street food-style Thai restaurant that’s easy on your budget but big on fun and flavour.
An indicator of its continuing popularity, the oft-seen queue snaking its way out the door of Ting Thai Caravan never seems to put people off. Once inside and settled at a sharing table or a window pew perfect for people-watching, it’s cosy, lively and friendly. The place is all pared-back, industrial-looking cool, where most dishes arrive nicely presented in brown cardboard boxes. Sides such as crunchy tofu with toasted peanuts, sweet chilli nut jam and coriander or buttery roti accompany the main players. The pan-fried seabass fillet, paired with rice or noodles, is a riot of flavour thanks to the ginger, shallot, lemongrass, coconut and cashew nut combo. The pad Thai is equally as good and caters to all, with king prawn, chicken, beef and vegetable varieties on offer, and the menu also boasts a range of curries and soup bowls. There are no desserts but wash it all down nicely with a beer or Thai juice and look forward to your next visit.
