Kaosan, Brixton Village

Since it opened around nine weeks ago I've received a bunch of recommendations from friends to try out Kaosan, Brixton Village's newest restaurant.  Today I finely found time and headed down there for a spot of lunch.

The family run Thai restaurant is located at the Cold Harbour Lane end of 2nd Avenue and comfortably seats around 18 people.  On a Tuesday afternoon the restaurant was fairly quiet (a group of six were leaving as I arrived) but during the weekend and evenings you can expect a short wait of 10-15 minutes for a table.  And it's very much worth the wait.

Being a lunchtime I wasn't after a huge meal.  Everything on the menu sounded amazing and for small place there was a varied selection.  I opted for Kaeng Khiao Kai (Thai green chicken curry) and after a short wait my meal came out of the open kitchen where you can see the food being prepared.  It looked, smelt and tasted great!  It was hotter than a typical London thai, but not so hot it caused any discomfort whilst eating!

The average price of a main course was £6.90, a selection of soft drinks and teas are on the menu however if you fancy beer or wine with your meal you'll have to bring your own (apparently with no corkage charge).

If you're about Brixton I'd definitely recommend that you give Kaosan a go, in fact I'd say it's worth travelling to try out.  You won't be disappointed.

Opening times:

Tuesday, Wednesday & Sunday – 12pm to 9pm

Thursday & Saturday – 12pm to 10pm
