“Still Great”

Peppermint Cafe Kichijoji
Ranked #301 of 1,980 Restaurants in Musashino
Cuisines: Thai
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 June 2017 via mobile

I first visited the Peppermint Café in Kichijoj way back in 1988. Back then it was a funky little place with big soft old chairs, great food and cool staff. It has changed over the years and is now a more upmarket restaurant but the food is still great and the staff cool and charming.

Tonight we had the somtam (papaya salad) which was medium spicy by Thai standards and probably very spicy by Japanese standards. The morning glory was good but could have had more garlic and chilli. The spring rolls were tightly wrapped and very good. The grillled chicken was very tasty.

They have a selection of craft beers on the menu now and I believe the restaurant has become no smoking. (Or maybe no one was smoking tonight).

Very nice dinner.

The restaurant inside the Inogashira Park is a cozy and romantic place to eat delicious Asian foods and to have a great time with friends.

We had a fun evening with old friends who live near Kichijoji. They said it was their favorite restaurant, and now I can see why. The Thai food we ordered was as good as any, and the setting, in Inokashira Park, made it a special evening. Service was fast, food was good. But it was a little noisy and so visiting was difficult but not impossible.

I would go back on my own the next time I'm in Kichijoji, a western suburb of Tokyo.
