Name: Naamyaa Bangkok Cafe
Naamyaa has had some fairly mixed reviews, and I think it is the highly packaged formula that puts some Londoners off. It already feels like a chain although so far there is only one.
The turnip cake was good with a lovely charred-flavour from the searingly hot wok, the pork ribs had tender and delicious meet that fell off the bone - both excellent.
Verdict: A good new local option for Islington, with some very good Southeast Asian dishes in a beautiful but informal setting, sadly in a rather soulless location. The combination of authentic Thai with burgers seems a little strange, and this lack of focus may go some way towards explaining why the restaurant does not seem yet to have been as much of a hit as Busaba Eat Thai.
