The shin is such a superior cut to the chop, which I almost always find a bit of a chore. A liquor of cassia bark (a variant of cinnamon) and star anise underscored the caramelly sweetness. (…) It was terrific, really: comforting but still sophisticated, inviting but still interesting…

We’ve ordered pork shin, slow-braised in cassia bark, dark soy, star anise, with pickled mustard greens and a duck egg. Oh good grief, it’s great. It’s earthy and stringy and pungent, all good things in a dish such as this…

One of the best Pad Thai dishes I’ve had was a smashing demonstration of how unctuous and satisfying this often bland noodle dish can be. Soft and pillowy pork belly in a light peanut sauce came with a sharp papaya salad, though the portion size was a little disappointing for the price…

Interestingly, two of Thailand’s most famous street food dishes – pad Thai and som tam (the spicy green papaya salad from the north-east) – are absent; instead there is a far more interesting selection of less usual stir-fries, salads, curries and grilled dishes…

Chargrilled sirloin worked well with Thai basil and a jaew (thick dipping sauce) dominated by ginger and galangal. The menu’s only green curry is of rabbit, pungent and hot yet complex, containing both Thai pea aubergines and the rarer apple aubergine.
