We popped down to Angel to watch Inbetweeners 2, which was a bit of a disappointment. Some funny parts as expected but the storyline was lacking, would have been much better if it was based on their University experiences rather than Gap Yah!

Anyway on the walk back home we decided to stop for a meal and stumbled across a narrow thai restaurant called Isarn. The decor is modern and clean with the star element being the cow print chairs, very Gaucho.

The menu is extensive, upmarket thai I would call it, but at the same time reasonably priced.

We started by sharing the Mixed starter for 2 which comes in a neat box containing chicken satay, thai fishcakes, papaya spring roll and a lovely little mouthful of crispy duck and pomelo served on betel leaf. Perfectly sized for sharing and getting to taste a range of their starters.

Next up was onto mains, I went a bit left field and went for the pollock, spinach with green curry sauce. It was beautiful, the fish was perfectly cooked and not a bone in sight. The sauce did have a bit of a kick so not for those who don’t enjoy a bit of spice.

Lawrence went for the lamp chop with red curry, again all beautifully cooked with the meat tender and falling off the bone. Unfortunately we got stuck in too quickly so didn’t manage to get a picture.

The puddings looked very appetising as well but on this occasion we passed but will be popping back to work our way through their offerings!

For an impromptu stop this turned out to be up there with one of the best thai meals we’ve had, definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
