Thai restaurant and bar at the western edge of the Royal Docks in Docklands. It has a fair bit of seating outside on the terrace, and large windows allow even those seated inside to enjoy a pleasant waterside view. Food is served lunchtimes and evenings, and the bar remains open for a drink in between times.
Kake visited on a Friday afternoon in September 2008. I was hoping to get some spring rolls or something to tide me over until a late dinner, but unfortunately I'd missed the lunch service and was too early for the dinner service. Instead, I had a glass of perfectly decent white wine (house white, £3.25 for 175ml) and a basket of perfectly decent prawn crackers (£1.50 for a generous portion, enough for two people at least). I wasn't the only customer; there were three people having some kind of business meeting at the bar, and a couple who seemed to be lingering after lunch. Service was friendly and pleasant.
I'd happily come back here to try the food. I'm adding it to RGL now even though I've not had a meal here because the river view was good and there's not much else in the area.
According to their website as of September 2008, they also serve breakfast 7am-11am Monday-Friday, and brunch noon-4pm on Sundays.
Accessibility: Step-free access to the seating area and the toilets, though the cubicles in the latter are a little cramped.
