Sneak off for a lunchtime sojourn in Bangkok or Chiang Mai

Looking for an atmospheric lunch destination, or a spot to blow off some steam at the end of the working day? One destination worth considering is Mount Gravatt's Kinn Thai Restaurant which marries traditional Thai cuisine with contemporary trends, and blends briskly efficient service with a soothing sense of calm and ease. From the outdoor terrace, there are even water views for those who'd prefer to imagine themselves ensconced in Phang Nga Province rather than Westfield Garden City

"Kinn" means "eat" in the Thai language, and the directive is one you'd be well-advised to take seriously if you visit Kinn Thai. Dinner menu starters include betel leaves filled with tiger prawns ($6), or pan-seared scallops in a chilli and lime sauce ($8). A wide range of main dishes, designed to be shared, include chilli jam crispy soft shell crabs ($23), Massamun lamb shanks ($19) and crispy whole Barramundi ($26). If you'd prefer to fly solo, there are also a range of noodle dishes too. I ordered prawn Pad Thai ($19) and was pleasantly surprised to find ample fresh, plump, tails-on specimens tangled in amongst the noodles and beansprouts. Fried rice is, of course, on the menu too.

You'll find a range of quick and affordable lunch options at Kinn Thai as well, including the steamed chicken with ginger rice ($12.90), Tom Yum noodle soup ($13), braised pork belly ($13) and garlic pepper chicken with fried egg ($11.90). And for kids? Fortunately, these restaurateurs sidestep the tired old hot dog or fish-and-chips options in favour of junior fried rice - either topped with crumbed prawns or served with chicken skewers and peanut sauce.
