Hitting The Beach at JBR is this casual Thai restaurant that hails from the streets of London’s Soho. Walking in, you’ll be greeted both by a woody whiff of incense and friendly staff. The venue is a simple but modern canteen of dark, glossy wooden tables and benches. It’s minimally adorned, but there is still a simple South Asian tone to it. And upstairs you’ll find a second dining room and a small terrace. The menu is a straightforward mix of stir-fries, salads and curries, with plenty of recognisable Thai favourites, such as fishcakes, pad thai noodles and sticky rice. The food all tends to be well prepared and enjoyable, but there are few mind-blowing or standout dishes. The fishcakes are fragrant, with a classically sweet, sticky, spicy sauce on the side. The salmon and green mango salad is one of the more interesting dishes, with juicy chunks of fish, crispy shards of fish skin and plump chunks of borderline ripe mango bringing diverse sensations. This is certainly a pleasant and convenient Thai spot, but it feels as though the traditional flavours have been toned down to suit a wider audience.
