Small, tucked away and little known, Blue Moon Tufnell Park has a lot to say for itself when it comes to taste. Unassuming in the extreme with polite and attentive service, it more than compensates for it’s slightly humble outlook with a tasty menu.
When it comes to Thai restaurants, it doesn’t get much better than a pot of Jasmine tea, mouthwatering starters and a main course that surprises you with the power and delicacy of its flavour.
The crispy wanton starter had a great texture and the chicken inside is delicious with the sweet chilli dipping sauce, as are the classic spring rolls. The drunken noodles are lush, but not necessarily the best in the world (according to my girlfriend there’s a place in Reno Nevada that’s got that crown). However, the yellow curry is sublime with chicken or vegetable options.
Blue Moon may not be fancy, but it’s got a little bit of class and a whole lot of taste. Just around the corner from Tuffnell Park tube stop, it’s got a great, quick lunch menu and evening menu for days at the heath.
Blue Moon, Tufnell Park review: 4/5
