Home Thai


  • There’s been an influx of burger restaurants and pizzerias in Brighton of late and whilst I enjoy both, they aren’t in the least bit healthy. So, the discovery that a brand new noodle bar had popped up in September, had me very excited. Noo Noodles sits on Cranbourne Street, just on your way up to Churchill Square and is independently owned, with two branches in Brighton and Southend-on-Sea.

  • Although there are ample Thai restaurants in Brighton & Hove (e.g. Sukhothai, Street Thai and Chilli Cafe), few live up to the dishes I sampled in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Koh Tao, Koh Samui and Ko Phi-Phi. Luckily, I’ve now found somewhere that serves Thai food that comes close to what I had on my backpacking adventures – Giggling Squid in Hove.

  • I was sat in the dining area at the hostel on a remote beach on Koh Pha Ngan, Thailand when I first experienced Massaman Curry. It was love at first bite and for the six weeks I travelled throughout the country it was an affair that continued, though I did often cheat on it with many other tantalising Thai dishes.

  • The Green Mango has now rebranded to Cafe Chilli with a move away from the generic Thai menu you’d expect and incorporating more fusion dishes, which are becoming increasingly popular in Bangkok.
