Gluten Free Thai Food at Oaka, Kennington

Oaka at the Mansion House is a pan-Asian restaurant moments from Kennington tube station, which serves up some of the best food we’ve come across – and plenty of it is gluten free, too!

The place is the brainchild of couple Paul Hook from Oakham Ale and his wife Patcharee Shaweewan – half of Oaka is a pub specialising in Oakham ales, whilst the other side is an upmarket restaurant with a menu inspired by Patcharee’s Thai origin.

All gluten free dishes are clearly marked on the menu, something we love to see!

We went with the gluten free Massaman Lamb (£11.90) – a delicious, rich dish of slow-cooked lamb in a Thai style curry sauce with new potatoes, flavoured with tamarind and palm sugar. It doesn’t come with any accompaniments though, so we picked some sticky rice (£2.90) too.

The restaurant is a far cry from the ordinary Thai food in a pub experience. Dark, glossy wood surrounds the tables and they’ve gone for the mood lighting in a big way. Tea lights galore! There is also a television in the restaurant showing the goings on in the kitchens. Sometimes you can see them set fire to things. Quite exciting.

Whilst Oaka is a little on the pricier side, we think it’s the perfect spot for a special occasion. Give Oaka a try next time you’re in South London – we think it’s hands down the best place to eat in Kennington!
