Naamyaa

My latest favourite place to eat is Naamyaa Cafe, in St John Street, Islington.  A partnership between the two maestros of Asian Cuisine. Alan Yau who brought us Wagamama, Yauacha, and Hakkasan, and David Thompson world renown Thai food expert and all round nice guy.
This is not their first venture together, an earlier and very successful venture was Busaba Eathai in 1999. 
 
The food at Naamya is offered as small plates or set dishes.  It's Thai food as you will know it from Thailand not Waitrose!!  And (cleverly in my opinion anyway) if one of your party simply can't dine out without it being a burger, or hot dog and chips, they have a couple of great (and from what I have seen greatly enjoyed) options on the menu.

I would definitely be there. My son loves Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese food, so when we are together, I always treat him to one of these.
