Come for the delicious and authentic Thai street food that some say is better than what can be found in Thailand

Tatler Says

High ceilings, distressed posters and antique wooden furnishings embellish the space where Samsen stands. The Thai eatery remains a perennial fan favourite and queues only get longer during mealtimes. Seating can be tight with little elbow room, but food and service are on point. The dinner menu includes a la carte dishes such as crab omelette and turmeric fried squid, both well-executed and served alongside a hot and tangy sauce on the side. Wagyu beef boat noodles are a must, while the stir-fried chicken flat noodles come a close second. Thai milk tea and lime soda are popular among guests but an occasional pineapple ginger frappe is an excellent alternative with an option to spike with a boozy shot.

Signature Dishes

  • Wagyu beef boat noodles
  • Green mango and tiger prawn salad
  • Thai mango sticky rice

Tatler Tip

Arrive at least 30 minutes early to queue up for first seating, although last minute bar seating is often available.
