About Cattleya at Chu & Cho

When Charlton’s favourite Spanish tapas restaurant, fondly known as Chu & Cho, was invaded by proprietors with a yen for Thai cuisine, it was far from a hostile takeover. Now, under the name Cattleya at Chu & Cho, diners at the restaurant’s Charlton Church Lane premises can have the best of both worlds – Spanish and Thai tapas alongside a great selection of traditional Thai dishes. Cattleya is a unique proposition in London, and there’s a famous live music night on Sundays that begs for a table booking.

More about Cattleya at Chu & Cho, London

Cattleya at Chu & Cho have trademarked the term Thai-Med in relation to their unique brand of fusion food, and they’re probably justified. We’ve seen Thai cuisine making inroads at British pubs, sure, but to mix and match Spanish tapas with Thai food? That has to set some kind of precedent in the UK, and you saw it here first, ladies and gentleman, at Cattleya’s Charlton Church Lane fusion restaurant in London’s Charlton. Not quite satisfied with welding Andalusia to Southeast Asia, Cattleya also maintain a popular music night on Sundays – be sure to book at this particularly busy time.

From patatas bravas to prawns on toast, boquerones to aromatic duck rolls, Cattleya at Chu & Cho moves confidently from Spanish tapas to Thai tapas. And it makes sense. Small plates such as these are perfect to share with friends and family, the ideal accompaniment to good drink, and it seems that the traditions of Spain and Thailand can harmonise when it comes to presenting carefully chosen and simply prepared dishes to diners. That said, Cattleya’s a la carte menu remains dominated by classic Thai dishes: tom yum and tom kha soups, Thai salads and curries, stir-fries and so on. The stars of this Charlton Thai (and tapas) restaurant are certainly house specials like the neua phrig Thai orn, stewed beef shin with fresh peppercorns, garlic, and green vegetables, or the fiery ped phad cha, sliced duck breast with onion, red peppers and green beans, peppercorns garlic, and a whole lot of chilli. A certifiable oddity in London’s dining scene, curious foodies are advised to check it out.

Great local place serving lovely Thai and Spanish food. Good selection so can accommodate those who like some spicy food and those who prefer their dinner a little less fiery.

Excellent food and service and very reasonably priced. The fried banana was amazing. What a treasure of a restaurant hidden away in Charlton. We will definitely go back.

A strange combination but it seems to work, we visited for lunch on the way to football, it was quiet but some regulars were in and the service was very good. Food was of a very good standard and the freshness of everything came through, all in all en enjoyable lunch and would recommend more use it for a match day than do currently!!

Great little find in Charlton. Unassuming exterior so easy to miss - but don't! The thai food is fresh, tasty and plentiful. The service - although a little slow with only one person manning the floor - was polite and friendly. Definitely recommended if you are in that part of town and want some delicious authentic thai!

I like this restaurant a lot. Very relaxed - lots of choice, very tasty and very reasonable. I had a beef, aubergine and noodle stir fry and my friends a mixed thai starter platter. I look forward to tryng the mediterranean tapas next time. Recommended
