Does anyone know of a good place to get lunch in Hammersmith?
I work in Bristol, where I know exactly where to get some of the best lunches in the World (in my opinion), but my company’s head office is in Hammersmith.
Every time my team and I go up to London to the Hammersmith office, we end getting rubbish food for lunch. Even falling back on chainstore grot like Pret-A-Manger in our desperation.
We don’t know the area that well, only the Underground station and the Hammersmith Road area (where the office is). Can anyone suggest some easy find places to get a decent feed at lunchtime near the Hammersmith Road?
If you like South Indian food – (lighter than typical ‘curry house’ fare) – you’re in luck. Try Sagar or Shilpa – both on King Street.

Bianco Nero is very good for Italian. It’s on Hammersmith Road.
For decent European / Polish, there’s the Knaypa on King St.
Tosa, also on King St, does great Japanese – especially yakitori.
Finally, 101 Thai Kitchen is a bit of a secret among West London foodies. It serves seriously good authentic Thai food and specialises in dishes from the northern (Isarn) region.
The term Isarn Thai is just a little broad. For example, it might refer to a restaurant, such as this one in London, England.
There is also an Isarn Thai Foods in Christchurch, New Zealand. I have seen it referred to as Isarn Thai Restaurant elsewhere, although the two addresses are different. Possibly two separate businesses?
Or it might refer to the Isaan or Isan language, as Wikipedia seems to prefer it spelled.
And it may refer to the Isaan region of Thailand itself (again spelled Isan by Wikipedia), or the people of that region.
I’m feeling ambiguous today…let’s see what else I can find that might qualify for inclusion under the umbrella term Isarn Thai — time for some fun (all added in a post edit of March 28, 2012)!

This next reference is deceptive and (I feel) inaccurate. Religion is not even mentioned in the article…and as far as I know, Korat has no relationship to Udon Thani — they are distinct provinces:
The To the north
This is the most scenic component of Thailand, full of mountain tops and hills. Chiang Mai, Phrae, Sukhothai, and Lampang will be the main towns, and the region is home to various hill tribes that will be ethnically and culturally totally different from the Thais. The northern dialect differs in certain respects from the Thai spoken inside central plains, and is akin to that spoken in the Shan states of Burma. People: 17 million.

Can you believe that the very same article is elsewhere on the very same website, attributed to someone else?
And here it is again, published on an entirely different website:

This next “work” is not even original — that is, someone is making claim that it is their blog post, but it is an example of article spinning. It was pulled from somewhere else, and “spun” to look different in Google’s eyes, then published:

And does this next one look familiar? It’s the same article as the one just above — but re-spun to seem like it’s different and unique:
