My family enjoys Thai food and it looks like many people in Adelaide do too. You can find people tucking into a plate of Pad Thai - the most popular Thai stir fried rice noodles, savouring the fresh and tangy taste of the vegetables, herbs and spices used in Laab Chicken Salad, delighting in the crispiness of fried fish coated with tasty sauce, and appreciating the richness of the various red and green curries at Thai restaurants all over the city. Just when we thought we have tried all the Thai restaurants, we find another one around the corner.
Patumma Thai Cuisine at Royston Park is our latest discovery. Their Pad Thai had charred flavoured noodles and a unique delectable slightly sour taste sauce. The green curry we had was so delicious that we drank it like a soup and finished every drop.

Another recent find, Tiger Lily Cafe at Melbourne Street is our favourite Thai restaurant in North Adelaide. This small café offers flavoursome Thai dishes at reasonable prices. We love their Laab Chicken Salad and the entrée size that we ordered was the portion of a main dish.

Spicy Barramundi – deep-fried fillets of barramundi tossed with Thai spices and herbs is one of our favourite Thai dishes and Thai Chef Restaurant at Pulteney Street serves a beautiful version of this dish.

My father loves Green Papaya Salad and the one served at Aranya Thai Restaurant, Wingfield is the best we have tasted.
