Many thanks to all for the recommendation. I have tried Thai Silk and Suchard in the past. So, I ended with a delivery from Mama Thai yesterday but it was disappointing though edible. Suchard is okay though Thai Silk is better. I will try Kai Thai next. Cheers.

Have a look on and for good Thai restaurants. The best I've found is called Jasmine Garden. Very cheap but fantastic quality. The large coconut rice is enough for four portions!

It's a bit studenty but Lye Torng on St. George's Road is my local fave. I have banged on about it for years I know but I do like the food.

I've had more than one brilliant meal in Thai Pavilion East, on Kennington Road opposite the imperial war museum. However I haven't been back in a while, and it did tend to be sadly underpopulated even at peak times.

I havent been for years but was always excellent. It used to be BYO unless my memory fails me?

No, it is licensed - an ex pub. And there's a bar as well. And snooker table!

It might be suprising to note that the Elephant & Castle Pub on the corner of Elephant & Castle does very good, authentic Thai food- I was very pleasantly suprised. Reminded me of food in Bangkok.

Also there is the Continental Cafe on Arnside Road just off Walworth Road also does good cheap Thai food but it's only open during the day.

Worth asking if either can do takeout.

As this is now nearly a year old, anything new or are existing recommendations still up to date?

I can vouch that Suchard Thai is still very good. Very tasty food, and very prompt for collection take away orders. I can be walking home and phone through an order from the Northern end of London Bridge, and collect the food ten minutes later when I walk past. Perfect.

hmmm...still to find after nearly 20 years a thai restaurant in london (let alone SE1) that comes anywhere near the authenticity you get in ...say Sydney
bland toned down flavours seem (to me anyway) the default. i so want to be proved otherwise
