Possibly the Best on North Shore

Possibly the best Thai Restaurant on the North Shore....

Affordable, casual and relaxed for a quick meal.

Impressive resume of the chef - Pla Rojratanavchai, having worked in Spice I am, Mr Wong and Ms G's (All well-known Thai Restsurants in Sydney).

Get in before the crowds do.
Apparently they all heard.... all waiting patiently outside.)

Rice, Thai, Bangkok,
Khao Pad Cha $15.00

A southern style spicy fried rice with prawns, chilli, turmeric, wild ginger, Thai eggplant, kaffir lime leaf and Thai basil. Very fragrant and tasty. The rice was well-wok fried.

We were doing so well until we come across a little hot number chilli slice - and WOW, that was one explosive fire-cracker chilli!

There is something in it to make it so addictive. Normally, one would stop eating after a 'hot encounter', but no, we kept on working our way through! It was spicy and yet moreish at the same time.

Salad, Famous, Mango, Snapper,
Yum Mango Salad $18.00

The highlight of tonight:
A towering tall salad of shredded mango mixed with coriander, red onions, fried & fresh shallots, peanuts and dried shrimps. Drizzled in citrus lime juice, this is already a fantastic salad. But wait - there is more...

The fried fish fillets were hidden under the mango salad pile! Large pieces of crispy and lightly battered snapper fillets...they just completed the flavour and texture of this dish.

High recommended.

Soup, Thai,
Tom Yum Goong Soup $14.00

A spicy & sour soup with tiger prawns, galangal, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaf, scud chilli and lime juice. The taste is a lot more stronger than your average Thai restaurant. Lot more authentic too.

Service was attentive and obliging. There was a special care to explain to us the 'high chilli' content in some of the dishes.

Overall the food is very tasty, but can be a tad spicy. The return factor is high for us!

A good modern Thai restaurant that is currently on Qantas Travellers' Watchlist for all interstate does that say something to you?
