It's a decent-sized space, with floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides plus a mirrored wall at the back to distribute the sunlight further. The low ceiling is painted a vibrant deep purple, and hung with ornate lampshades. Elaborately-carved wooden panels and other decorative touches are here and there. Additional seating is provided on a mezzanine floor, and in good weather tables are also available outside on the terrace.
[[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.

[[Kake]] visited again on a rainy Saturday afternoon in February 2018. There were only two other groups in when I arrived around 2:30pm, and I was offered a choice of where to sit, though others continued to arrive throughout my visit. Peaceful vocal music was playing quietly.
Accessibility: Step-free access to the seating area and the toilets, though the cubicles in the latter are a little cramped.

Ped kheemao (duck with long beans, aubergine, and baby corn; &pound;11) <small>[https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/25355241447/ photo]</small> was pretty good. The duck was flavourful and tender, in generous proportion, and they'd rendered the fat properly. The vegetables were al dente, which worked very well, even for the aubergines (which I don't generally like undercooked). The green beans had a perfect snap of freshness. There was a nice level of chilli heat in the sauce too. Coconut rice (&pound;4), on the other hand, was disappointing &#8212; sweet, not very coconutty, and with an overly starchy texture.

I also had a Thai lemon iced tea (&pound;3.50) <small>[https://www.flickr.com/photos/kake_pugh/25355240677/ photo]</small>, which was quite interesting; not too sweet, dark orange (possibly from food colouring), and with a hint of molasses flavour that might have come from palm sugar.

Tap water arrived promptly but wasn't topped up when I ran out. Other than that, service was fine, both efficient and friendly. A 12.5% service charge was added to the bill, which made it something of a surprise when the card machine prompted me to add an extra tip.

Accessibility: Step-free access to the ground floor and toilets via a ramp. The toilet cubicles are a little cramped.
