Have you noticed that Soho is replete with French, Italian and Japanese restaurants? So what do you do when you're really craving a Thai meal and don't want to venture far?
You Google (but of course) and discover this gem - Jane Tira.

I'm obsessed with prawn toast. What? You didn't know? I'm good at hiding my obsessions :) Can't imagine a Chinese/Thai meal out/ takeaway without prawn toast. But I've never dared to make it at home - didn't want to ruin it for myself if it turned out terrible!
Then, last year my friend and I decided to make ourselves a Thai dinner, and I bravely suggested prawn toast to complement her green curry. And then, earlier this year, my husband and I got ourselves a dim sum steamer (more on this later!) and we decided to cook up a Chinese feast, which had to include prawn toast of course. So I've had a bit of practice!
I've walked past CJ's Cafe almost everyday for the last 3 years and I've never noticed it. Bizarre, I know. I like to tell myself, however, that maybe it hasn't been there for 3 years. I shall find out the next time I visit. I'm definitely going back. Not just because the food was great, the service friendly, and the whole ambience chilled out, but because it's 2 minutes from home.
It’s easy to miss Noodles & Magic when you’re hurrying down King Street in Hammersmith. Tucked away beside Books for Amnesty, on the ground floor of Appleton House, it doesn’t look very inviting in the day. But in the evenings when all the candles are lit, you peep in and see a few happy people bent over their meals, and it’s warm and welcoming.
