Food: The Number One Cafe Click for more info

Thai seems to have been a running theme this past few months. Still, at least Number One is different in that the food was Halal and so completely accessible (including the duck) to all those at the table.

Which turned out to be a bit of a curse really. We managed to pick a good selection of starters, which included Battered Prawns, Chicken Satay and Chicken Wings. Portions were generous, with two of each being enough for the eight of us eating.

Mains were a bit more tricky, however. The menu was quite vast, with each particular dish available in vegetarian, chicken, beef and seafood varieties. With my noodles, I picked a rich and hot chicken curry made with coconut milk which I thought was pretty fab.

Service was polite if a bit eccentric. As was the restaurant itself being both classy and a bit of a mess at the same time. Still, the owner did allow us to pray which he didn't have to, and that pretty much added to the "home cooked meal" experience of the whole place.

Price came to just over nine quid per head which is a fantastic bargain (although we did skip dessert). If it wasn't so out of the way (it's a good ten minute walk from White City Station) it would be difficult not to recommend. As it stands it's definitely a place I'll return to if I happen to be in the area again.
