Original Thai concept restaurant set in the heart of Peckham

On any foggy morning in Chiang Mai, the creeping scent of spices and sugar from street vendor stalls mingles with the approach of orange clad monks, chanting while they carry their alms pots.

The vessel – called a ‘begging bowl’ – is an important part of Thai culture hailing back to Buddhist traditions of making merit and the community spirit it inspires is fascinating to witness.

It is this ethos that we hope to embody in our own corner of South London.

To us, The Begging Bowl enshrines a sense of community, and of sharing, both with Peckham and the Thai friends and family which inspired our foundations.

The Begging Bowl is a vessel used by buddhist monks in Thailand in a daily morning ritual where people come out to the streets and give them food and make merit.
