We arrived at Sohpita Thai Cuisine with high expectations, knowing the restaurant has been honoured with a 'Thai Select' endorsement from the Royal Thai Government - an accreditation that marks it as one of the best Thai restaurants in the UK - and we weren't disappointed.

Offerings to Buddha, scented plants and intricate wooden carvings from Chiang Mai bedeck the interior, transporting you east in an instant. The menu is great because it presents dishes that the owners themselves love, freshly prepared and expertly cooked using fresh ingredients, which are sourced, where possible, from Thailand itself. Each dish we tried was sensational, our evening infused with an amazing array of subtle spices and exquisite flavours. My tod mun pla starter comprised a fantastic spicy fishcake made with featherback fish, served with a chilli and peanut sauce. For mains, I highly recommend the gaeng phed ped yang - succulent roasted duck in a spicy red curry. Vegetarians have extensive choice too - try the pad makua, which features stir-fried aubergine with onion, black bean, fresh chilli and sweet Thai basil leaves. For dessert, the black sticky rice with coconut and taro completes the Thai experience.

Located in East Sheen, on the South Circular Road, Sohpita is very easy to reach - and there's plenty of places to park. Those coming by tube can jump off at Richmond and take a 30-minute stroll, and Mortlake overground station is just five minutes' walk away. And with two courses for £6.50 at lunchtime, there's really no excuse not to experience this fantastic Thai-dining treat.
