Tasty and tasteful Thai
A door covered with restaurant awards stands modestly on Toorak Road in front of Como Centre in South Yarra. The small glass facade is brightly lit inside, revealing a modern tropical interior reminding you of your luxury trip to the beaches in Thailand. Blossom Thai, with superb service and beautifully designed table set, makes a pleasing host for a date or group dinner in between shopping or before a movie.
At Blossom Thai, the king of Thai cuisine, green curry, is mild and creamy. The share-size deep dish comes containing lots of fresh vegetables and the meat of your choice. It's a curry, but the crunchiness of the greens leaves you with a healthy feeling after.
Entrees, including roti with peanut dipping sauce, are not to be skipped. The distinct sweet bread is fragrantly buttery, coming in an appropriate size, not too big to make you full for your main.
The classic noodles, phad thai, is also flavored mildly, making it everyone's favorite. At the tasteful restaurant, the amount of vegetables and meat to that of noodles is sizable. Together with a handful of crunchy peanut bits garnished on the side, this traditional thai noodles is texture-rich.
As well as the colorful dishes, Blossom Thai is a restaurant to enjoy the tasteful ambiance. As soon as you are guided to sit down, your table is soon to be decorated with water glasses with a slice of orange in them. On each table, there is also a fresh rose. The subtle uniqueness really brightens the experience. This classy Thai restaurant should be on the top of your list for a delightful South Yarra experience.
