  1. The link indicated that they have branches in London Bridge and other places...wondering if the Thai food truck just outside the post office on Borough High Street near London Bridge is one of them (which happens to be pretty good but not great).

            I went to that place a year ago and thought it was good but not great, too. Then I tried other places in London and realized that compared to those places, Bangkok Kitchen is great. I read the review and it seems the author's enthusiasm about this place is not without reservations. She even says that she's not sure if a place like this serving this level of food would survive if it were located in Bangkok.

            I've found it to be exactly what it claims to be, a place for simple, home-cooked Thai food and nothing more. You can't compare a curry joint like this with restaurants that serve more fussed over dishes and call it average -- it's MEANT to be average like all the curry places you find all over Thailand.
