In 2004 we opened our first restaurant, 101 THAI KITCHEN in Hammersmith, London. We were pioneers in bringing authentic and traditional ‘real’ Thai food, especially that of the Isaan (Northeastern) region to both the UK Thai community and the wider public. We are also fortunate to have with us our Auntie Bee whose Southern culinary expertise is second to none, making our restaurants the only ones in the UK who specialise in the food of Southern Thailand.
All these influences come from our birth place of Roi Et in the Isaan region and Hat Yai in the South.
At Anissa’s, you too can now enjoy these authentic dishes.
Thai food in the UK has been over adapted and even eaten incorrectly, some may suggest “westernised”. We’re here to offer alternatives.
We also want you to experience the joy of eating them in the traditional Thai way. To truly appreciate our food, we recommend you eat with a spoon, fork and sometimes, if necessary, don’t be shy to use your fingers!
The menu may be new to you but please take it from us that these are the kind of foods that Thais love to eat and we would love to share it with you.
We also love to talk about our food and can suggest tasty dishes to suit novice and seasoned diners alike so please ask our staff for assistance and recommendations. Explore our cuisine and embark on our culture and who knows, maybe you’ll never want to use chopsticks with Thai food ever again!
Being in the New Forest we are lucky that we’re surrounded by the freshest of ingredients and produce. Meat and eggs from local farms and butchers, seafood from the Hampshire coast and locally grown vegetables and mushrooms.
We use these fantastic local ingredients alongside our exotic Thai herbs and spices to create these special dishes but without compromising the true Thai tastes.
So relax, be brave, be bold, be Thai and enjoy your meal
