Among the city’s many identical Thai restaurants, Mengrai sets itself apart with bang-on spicy flavours and heaping portions. The house specialty of red curry chicken with lychee and pineapple (a favourite of Jessica Alba and Drew Barrymore, brags the server) gets spicy sweetness from the creamy coconut sauce. Pad Thai suffers from bland noodles and a distinct lack of seafood and tamarind flavour. The drinks list includes malty Thai Singha beer and good lychee mojitos.
