My father-in-law once bought two ‘authentic’ Samsung tablets from a guy on the street and, uh, let’s just say that he didn’t get his money back. You won’t need your money back at KaoSarn, which serves simple, satisfying, and authentic Thai food from a small cafe in Brixton Arcade. We like to hit it up when we get cravings for comforting South-East Asian food, and it’s also good for an afternoon pick-me-up. The moo ping pork skewers are a winner, and make sure the minced chicken larb salad is in your order too.
