Authentic and tasty Thai food in Adelaide's north east
Bangkok's Kitchen is a hidden gem of the north-east, located at Golden Grove Village Shopping Centre, nestled between two bank branches. If you live in the Golden Grove or Greenwith area, you really should be getting your Thai food from nowhere else.
Whether you pop in for a quiet lunch or on one of their slightly busier evenings, you can expect helpful and prompt table service and plates of food that are consistently well-presented and delicious to boot.
Be sure to order a serve of lucky baskets, one of the Kitchen's specialty entrées. A lucky basket consists of diced vegetables and chicken coated in a light BBQ sauce, served in a small wonton cup. These are tasty enough to get your appetite going but small enough not to ruin it. The delicately crafted decorative flower made out of carrot is a nice touch.
Dinner mains begin at $13. The Thai royal pork in particular comes highly recommended, but in all honesty it is difficult to go wrong.
A particularly good time to come and check out Bangkok's Kitchen is during the day for lunch. The restaurant is rarely busy, and you can get a generous serve of a wide range of dishes, which start from $7 on the lunch menu. Still, if nothing takes your fancy there, you can still order from the dinner menu.
From the lunch menu: chicken and vegetables with fried rice
The Bangkok Kitchen is a treasure with owners Cai & chef Steven providing a wonderful dining experience .Everybody we know that has visited the Bangkok Kitchen want to come back again & again for the magnificent and authentic Thai cuisine.
