Getting the Thames Clipper to Masthouse Terrace (with a following 6 minute walk) is by far the nicest way of travelling to this restaurant located imediately opposite Greenwich on the north side of the river.  It is a little gem in the otherwise mixed setting of Island Gardens (Isle of Dogs).  The food is among the nicest Thai food I have had in London with the hoi sin, plum and peanut sauces all being made freshly by the chefs (although the sweet chilli sauce is a modified version of pre-package but still good).  Good location as well, overlooking the river and probably one of the lesser known little finds in East London.

The Red Thai curry with thinly sliced duck was beautifully viscous and will be much more to British tastes compard to how it is authentically done in Thailand (being a lot more watery as a sauce and with a greater punch of spice).  £40 for two people to share on this ocasion meant very good value as it was highly gratifying to eat and both parties were stuffed at the end for the two starters and sharing the selected main with rice.

A must for me to return to sample and a very safe bet for anyone who loves Thai food and does not need to travel too far to get here.  Service was speedy rather than heartfelt.  A good place to find in summary.
