    Default Buying Thai food/ingredients online

    Can anyone recommend online websites for buying Thai ingredients?

    We've been in the UK for 2 weeks now and are 'breadded out', the mrs and kids need a Thai fix! Nothing available in the local stores so wondering if you could buy stuff online.

    Cheers

    Take a trip to Wing Yip in Croydon if you can't find a smaller place more local, which would be a little unusual. Wing Yip has everything, from hardware, to beer, a huge selection of imported frozen food, to great pork buns in the bakery just outside (or it did when I was last there). I used to use a Thai restaurant in Kingston and that's where they stocked up, I know that, as I saw the owners there.

    Hoo Hing supplies Asian restaurants and they have shops in dotted around London. They have most Thai ingredients and are cheaper than many of the typical high street shops as they are so big. Even live tilapia, crabs and lobsters. Galangal, lemon grass, Pad Thai, green curry etc etc. And seaweed... We eat tons of the stuff and don't eat bread or potatoes at all.

    They have a huge store in Chadwell Heath.

    Quite a lot of it including black sticky rice you can get from Amazon too.

    I agree about Hoo Hing as well and used to use the one at Mitcham, but Wing Yip did carry a bigger selection simply because it's a bigger store.

    As for Papaya, look for the Indian corner shops for cheaper prices or use swede instead. Many Thais use a substitute.

    Hi. Sorry to bump this but can anyone recommend the best/ most reliable online Thai shop please?

    I've broke my hand so can't drive anywhere.
    My closest Thai shop is in Richmond Upon Thames but would mean a trip on the train.
