Food presentation can have a huge impact on how delectable we think a dish is. Of course, flavour plays a huge role in that too. When you combine both of these wow factors into a dish, it can become a real talking point. Ghin Kopi's Bean Sprout and Chicken Salad is exactly that.

A stunning egg net encases a Thai style salad with bean sprouts, grilled chicken pieces that have been tossed in Thai herbs, lime, tamarind juice, coconut cream and ginger dressing. This is an incredibly popular dish according to the owners and the traditional Thai name is Salad Gai Hor.

As a speciality Thai food provider Ghin Kopi also does a mean Grilled Beef salad and Larb Gai (minced chicken salad). You can choose your 'heat' rating on this and I would err on the side of caution if you don't like things too hot, Thai chilli has kick.

With an extensive menu covering entrees, soups and curries - you may have a hard time picking what you want to eat. You always know the mark of a good place when it is tricky to choose.

One great thing Ghin Kopi provides is a set of three desserts. You get to taste three of the best: Toddy Palm Cake, Coconut Dessert and Banana Sticky Rice and Black Bean.



When you have a glass of water at Ghin Kopi, you may just do a double take. No, you aren't drunk - the water glasses naturally lean. Speaking of which, they do have a great drinks menu - so be sure to spoil yourself with a glass of wine or crisp beer. Perfect match with Thai Food.

Insider tip: This is a sit down restaurant on the Windsor end of Chapel Street, and now also a hot go to for online ordering and fast delivery of restaurant quality meals.
