Continuing from my day off work (which feels like decades ago) I went to Mama Thai on the Walworth Road. I went there a few years ago with Miss Pinky to compare with Kai's in Kingston and I hadn't been back since because I was too lazy to go in. I think Miss Pinky likes Kai's, and I don't we have found a place as good as them.
I pass this place nearly every day, and every time I pass it in the evening it looks empty from the outside, but you can't really see the inside very well as it looks dark from the outside. On some evenings and lunch periods they do get quite a few customers, but I don't think a lot of people eat Thai food around this area... That's a shame. On the day I went there were only two customers. Eat Thai food people!! It's good for colds!!

I already knew what I wanted to eat but I had a quick check on the menu to see if there was anything different from the one online... No changes on the menu.
I ordered the prawn tom yum soup. This is a traditional Thai soup, it's spicy, a little tangy and there was a lot in this bowl. I generally like the one in Kingston as the soup was a little thicker or darker in colour, but this was good.

I would have ordered dessert but I was too full and needed to buy an early birthday cake at the time. ^_^
Total cost came to £19.40. It is a little pricey, but I don't blame them as customer turnout might be low.
My geeking rating: 4.5/5
- Quiet place to eat Thai food
- Friendly service
- Good portions of food
- A little pricey (but worth it if you don't go often)
