    Yes I was pleased with the price too. The bento box is huge - more than enough food for a whole meal. You are tempting me into a mid-week family meal out. :D Plus no kitchen at the moment due to building works.

    Loved Kaosarn, thanks. Wish I'd known it was BYOB, but the lemongrass tea was nice anyway. Moo Ping was a bit rubbery, but the Khao Pad Kra-Praw Chicken was lovely :thumbs:

    The "tiny Thai place" is Yum-D, which I much prefer to Kaosarn.

    I had a look at that on my way back, looked alright.

    Also spotted on Coldharbour Lane on my way home the new Lebanese place Ya Hala, by the Prince Of Wales. Looks great, and turns out to be the place a mate has been ranting about for the last four months.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Ranting or raving?

    A bit of both I think

    Ya-Hala looked to be a decent addition to the area when it first opened, the only thing i ever had was a takeaway kebab sandwich thing, which was average (stingy on the meat).

    didnt entice me to return

    i think it would be good if it was BYOB, it feels and looks like it could or should be the type of place that is.

    I was severely dehydrated after eating there the last 2 times so I'm going to have to give it a miss now. Which is a shame as it's cheap.

    shakespearegirl just worked out taglines

    Negril are finally doing deliveries again. Ordered at 9.30 last night arrived in 20 minutes, all correct and still hot. When they last used to deliver it would take at least an hour to arrive.

    I think shakespearegirl is talking about the Thai place next door. The name escapes me (Yum D?) but it's good.

    yes, you are right - happyshopper already posted this above. :) Kamome is a Japanese restaurant of course - not Thai!! I'm all about the Japanese... :D

    Menu looks similar to Tokyo diner in Lisle street which I've always enjoyed

    Went here today for first time. It's fine - nothing special. Reminded me of Tas.

    ION Nanban are opening an express/takeaway hatch on Electric Lane.

    I think being relatively affordable made it special, to me at least. Shame I don't like it more.

    Yeah Fujiyama (RIP) offered better price/quality ratio.

    Curious to know if anyone has tried Yokan the newish Japanese bar/eaterie next to the Shrub and Shutter.

    They've taken to hanging a gaudy fish made of cloth outside - could poke your eye out on a windy day. They seem to have (presumably Japanese branded) keg ale but no idea of the prices of either food or drink.

    There is also a Japanese restaurant in Market Row - Curry Ono though this seems empty a lot of the time, which might not be a good sign. It does however look 100% more spotless and welcoming than the Okan at 338 Coldharbour Lane as far as I am concerned.

    Wish I could give a review.

    Would you food-loving folks be interested in posting up your top 3 Brixton restaurants with a sentence explaining why? Might be a nice feature I could stick on Buzz (and link back here)...

    Curry Ono is great, best japanese curry i've had in London

    Okan on coldharbour is a sister restaurant to OKAN in the market. The market restaurant focuses on okonomiyaki, a japanese style cabbage based pancake. The coldharbour restaurant is more noodle focused (soba and ramen). Both venues are brilliant, however the okonomiyaki is better value in my opinion.

    Curry Ono is now called Kakome. I can highly recommend it (see my posts above). It's very authentic.

    Do you mean one of these?

    If so it's a koinobori (which is a kind of wind sock - so interesting that you mention wind above) - they are traditionally flown over houses on Children's on May 5th. They look stunning.

    I have hung a very large one along the ceiling of my children's bedroom.

    Shame it's so expensive - I would love a place that did a decent ramen for 6-7 quid in my neighborhood

    From memory Koi Ramen might fit the bill? Was around £6 when they were on station road market... cant recall their prices in Pop

    Was going to go tonight but rain drove us into kakome which was great although they gave us soba when ramen was ordered plus the lighting in there is far too bright
