Ok, so not East Dulwich but Would anyone here comment on Lombok Thai in Herne Hill ?

Seems reasonably priced on Food and Drink.
Any recommendations on Menu.

Looked empty on a recent visit to The Half Moon opposite. Was a Monday.

It's not bad. Quite old-school. Pretty popular on the weekends.

Not at all Strange.
Indonesia has been influenced by Thai, Malay and Indonesian Cuisine which are all very similar,

The Clue is in the name 'Lombok Thai'
It is a restaurant selling Thai Cuisine .

If is was called 'East Dulwich Thai' would anyone say "that's a strange name for a Thai restaurant
East Dulwich isn't in Thailand, its in England.

Ah well, I had an opinion, that's all. Suffice it to say that I have spent time in Thailand and, apart from places like Bangkok and Pattaya you wouldn't have found Indonesian food anywhere, not even Koh Samui in those days. Similarly, I Have scuttled my way right through Indonesia, including Lombok and you wouldn't have found a hint of Thai food anywhere. Hard to get a banana sandwich on Lombok. The attols to the NorthWest, Gili Air, Gili Trawangan and Gili Meno were just that, attols. Bare of earthly delights except for rice in Banana leaf packets and the most amazing snorkelling in the world. I met a guy recently who told me of his 'adventure' through the islands. The meaning of the word adventure has also changed!

Love.

I have been to both Indonesia and Thailand, and in my experience there was no crossover of food whatsoever.

big grin

Come to think of it I've been to Malaysia as well.

Don't remember the food there being anything like Thai food, either.

There is an area of Sumatra, whose name I can't remember offhand, where the food was very hot, but still not in a Thai way.

There are approx 17,500 islands in Indonesia. Have you been to all of them
The food varies considerably across the archipelago.

No obviously not.

Have you?

Of course there are regional variations. I was just editing my post above when I had to answer the door, and I hadn't seen your post when I posted the edit.

What regions/islands do you think have a Thai/Indonesian/Malaysian crossover in their cuisine?

ETA: I can't be bothered googling but I'm sure you can find something big grin

ETA: In any case, I thought you had now decided that calling the restaurant Lombok had nothing to do with its cuisine?

Though why in that case you would choose that name, who knows?

I've been to Oaxaca, phonetically Wahaca. Next to Vera Cruise who used to be in Corrie.

Perhaps we can have a thread on the misspelling of the Mexican restaurant chain.

I've also been to Flores, Sumbawa, Bali and wait for it, Lombok. And the restaurant, which was fine.
