Esarn is a cosy local spot on Uxbridge Road, with old-school ‘80s decor and sweet service from a couple of aunties who are experts at guiding you through the menu of homestyle Northeastern Thai food. Esarn’s an original for Thai cuisine in London, and the food isn’t for the fainthearted. The minced pork and bamboo shoot salad is very good, and the tom yum soup is as intense as it is in Bangkok. If you do happen to have less adventurous eaters among you, relax – there’s also Massaman curry and pad thai on the menu.
