I am a massive fan of Thai food & grabthai didn't disappoint! Their padprick pork belly with chilli green beans was amazing! Have been back more than once & would definitely recommend if you're in need of a Thai fix.

GrabThai used to be really quick, super tasty food and a good dose of authenticity. It's now lost its magic - trying to become a bit fancier. And underdone noodles in pad Thai are not pleasant...

I recently discovered this place and it has become my go-to lunch takeaway. just minutes away from my office. Service is really speedy and food is at great value. I always opt for the sweet and sour cashew chicken or the chilli, garlic beef. If...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
