Oli's Thai

Ru and Ladd run this teensy superstar Thai restaurant (Oli is their son). Lauded by locals and restaurant critics with right ups in national newspapers - not bad for a restaurant, albeit styled like a cafe, with around 10 tables. It is much loved for its authentic cooking and unpretentious attitude. It’s super simple, super delicious and super hard to get a table. A few are held back each day for walk-ins but the general rule is to book as you leave for a table in 4 weeks time. The food is seriously good - hence the wait. Good things come to those...

Rufus Thurston (The Ru of Oli’s Thai) joined forces with another Oxford restauranteur, Ben Whyles, to open this popular Tapas bar on the Cowley Road. Confusing (yet beautiful) vintage signage of a pharmacy gives it the delicious feel of a secret only few know of. The food is really very good, as we would expect from Rufus. EVERYONE orders the tortilla upon arrival and the dishes flow from there. Small and intimate but achingly cool.
