Thai has been an extremely popular cuisine in London for many years, but what truly makes a tasty yet worthwhile Thai Restaurant? Of course, compared to what you can get in Asia, both price point and authenticity can hardly compare.
So how does KRUA by Nathong compare?
Originally a Restaurant in Bangkok, KRUA opened a branch in London’s St. Pauls. Conveniently located just steps away from the underground, this bustling business lunch destination has received much positive feedback.
KRUA‘s menu features “tweaked” Thai classics to fit local Chili tolerance, while incorporating more familiar Asian dishes like Stir fry and grilled meats. Their modern, western decor dictates KRUA‘s style, which unfortunately does not spell authentic Thai cuisine. Though the London crowd may prefer more ‘clichéd’ Asian or Thai dishes, it is a same to see KRUA loosing the essence of true Thai cooking. Dishes like Steamed Sea Bass and Prawn Toast, neighbors much closer to Chinese cuisine.
KRUA by Nathong serves decent food, though if you looking for something truly authentic you may be out of luck.
