Celebrate Songkran at one of the UK’s top Thai restaurants

From April 13th to 15th, Songkran (Thai New Year) will be celebrated all over Thailand with traditional parades, feasts and water fights. While we’d love to be celebrating it in Bangkok, we reckon it’s a great excuse to get some friends together for a Thai meal and a few Chang beers.
