    I have yet to have a bad meal at Sri Siam on Old Compton St

    Also for malaysian try Melati's just round the corner from C&A on Rupert St

    Either will hit the spot

      there's two melatis in the phone book - great windmill street and peter street, both W1.

      which one?

        Peter St

        Though either is fine

          if you go to melati, you must have the hot soup with coconut, chile and coriander (and maybe choice of chicken or seafood). Order several. really delicious. I'd go just for that.
