140 London Road, Sheffield, S2 4LT
Situated on the vibrant London Road in Sheffield, Thai Punna is a warm and inviting family-run eatery. A relatively new venture, they seem to be experiencing none of the teething troubles so often found in young businesses. The decor is really something. The rich red and gold colour scheme, fretwork and mirrors make the front of house almost regal, whilst the funky glass taps in the bathroom encourage more visits than are really necessary, just to take a peek. The staff are courteous and hugely efficient, anticipating your every need until you begin to suspect that they're just a little bit psychic. Clad in spicy-toned silk, they look every bit as exotic and imperial as their surroundings.

The menu is daunting at first because the Thai names are so unfamiliar, but the descriptions are in English and the staff are more than happy to assist. The options are divided into sections: express dishes, appetisers, spicy salads, curry, stir-fries, seafood, vegetarian and chef's recommendations. There are also set menus for those who can't choose. There are extensive options and many interesting serving styles - several dishes come on a sizzling hot plate that fills the room with fragrant steam, and each dish is adorned with flowers carved from various fruits and vegetables. Most dishes are available with a choice of meats (chicken, duck, beef), prawn or tofu. The gang panang knocks the socks off all its watery Westernised imitators with its fiery strength and its subtle layers of flavour. For lovers of sea bass, the bplaa raat prik is a delight - crispy yet soft, and wonderfully complex. The puddings are sinfully sweet and indulgent creations, try the pandanus-infused Thai pancakes and deep-fried ice cream.

Most of the ingredients are sourced from the Thai Punna grocery store just a stone's throw away, which means you can try the recipes at home. Or, if you have little skill in the kitchen, you can always order a takeaway and pretend. I certainly wouldn't hold it against you - Thai Punna is irresistible.
