Traditional Thai Cuisine With Class

Once located in the corner of a small shopping centre strip, the Aksorn Thai is now bigger and classier.

This modern and stylish restaurant adorned with Thai ornaments is now on the Main Street of Diamond Creek and serves authentic traditional Thai cuisine. The Aksorn has a fully licensed bar or if you prefer you can BYO (wine only).

Quiet early but filled up quick

I am a Pad Thai Devotee but tonight we chose four new menu items 18, 23, 31 and 36. This included the Mussaman curry - coconut milk potato, onion and roasted peanuts - and a Pad ki mao - stir fried rice stick noodles, garlic, chili, basil and vegetables. This is on my 'to eat again lists'.

Good size Mussaman curry and delicious

We also had Pad Pak - combination stir-fried vegies, and charcoal grilled marinated chicken Maryland in honey, chili, garlic pepper and lemongrass. Three of the dishes were $16.90. The dearest item was $17.90.

There was a large menu including seafood, soups, entree, curries, fish, charcoal grill, clay pot dishes, stir-fry, noodles and rice. There was a large selection of vegetarian dishes and banquets.

The banquets were from $32.90 per person, which includes three entrees, four mains and dessert. For $37.90 the banquet includes all of the above plus soup.

I was shocked when the children said they had never tried banana fritters before. I know this seems terribly negligent. They were a delicious introduction to crispy banana fritters. We were so keen when they arrived that I forgot to photograph them.

[ADVERT]Even if they had not been as good they would have been worth it just for the home-made ice cream. We had coconut and mango and both of these ice cream were delicious with fresh pieces in them.

To top it off the children were most impressed by being given a Freddo frogs with the bill.

I would definitely go back as it was very reasonably priced with an inner city appeal. Next time I would try their Roti. I love Roti and somehow missed this on the menu. I saw someone else enjoying it when I was on the way out. This was my only disappointment for the night.
