This family-run Thai restaurant sits right on Clapham Common in south London, and enjoys great support from the local community.
There are several tables outside for warmer days, and bench-style seating inside that adds to a convivial atmosphere. The service is friendly and efficient, plus an open kitchen adds to the atmosphere as flames leap from sizzling pans.
The menu is fairly standard, sticking to tried-and-tested favorites, like pad Thai and noodle soup dishes, but the quality marks Pepper Tree from the crowd. All of the dishes appear freshly made with great ingredients, and the flavors are spot on.
You can get beer, wine or soft drinks to accompany your meal, and all at reasonable prices too. Expect to pay $5 for a beer, and around $12 for a main course. It’s eminently affordable for a restaurant in London, and if you’re in a hurry the speedy service will be music to your ears.
With that in mind Pepper Tree is more of a place to grab some food before you go out, rather than a spot to linger over a romantic meal. It fulfils that role well, and there will be no complaints from this regular customer.
