    Went to Ya Hala next to Paddington Station this evening. Well worth knowing about if ever in the area - better Lebanese meze than any I've had on nearby Edgware Road

    i can name several excellent places to get turkish kebabs without it being some boring posh version.

    castle kebabs in elephant and castle for one.

    best turkish kebabs in london for my money.

    if you want trinidadian food, you cant really beat roti joupa in clapham

    not sure how i feel about english people serving up non english foods. my only reservation would be that it cuts in on business for people from those countries. and people might see it as 'superior' to the cheaper, less posh versions. if theyre doing something different with it, (combining it with something else, etc), then i suppose that's fine.

    I'm looking for somewhere new to go with a veggie - any suggestions? Doesn't have to be fully meat-free but not eg Hawksmoor or anything.

    Preferably a bit occasion-y but not fayn dayning, preferably fairly central.

    Cheers

    I like going to shanghai blues. Not fashionable but good and feels posh enough when they're not understaffed
    (I'm a lifelong vegetarian btw)
    They've got an affordable st clair sauvingnon blanc from new Zealand I'm in love with too

    Thanks!

    Ippudo looks like it could be an option actually.

    Abeno showed up in the early days of this thread, didn't it? Also a good option, though.

    We went to Bao in the end. Very good steamed buns. Not taking the piss with the prices. Some queueing required even on a Monday night.

    Limited but nice. Daikon cake bao, sweet potato tempura chips, a couple of things involving cavolo nero or enoki mushrooms and preserved eggs.

    Edit: Alison's not a big eater and was pretty happy. It does kind of feel like the meat options are the main event, though.

    Do we have a single credible, serious Thai restaurant? If not why not?
