Middle Fish, located at 122-128 Berkeley Street, Carlton, offers tasty authentic Southern Thai cuisine, in a warehouse space decorated with a mixture of hip and traditional furnishings including mosaic tiled and wooden tables, cushioned couches, wrought iron fixtures, and water served in traditional metal cups.

Open for breakfast and lunch, 7am-5pm Monday to Friday, and 10am-4pm on weekends, Middle Fish light menu options include spring rolls, banana roti, and fish cake ($5.50 - $7.50); breakfast dishes include a variety of brown rice soups, omelette, and a twist on toast ($13.50-$16.50); and the list of Southern Thai dishes, rice dishes, curries, soups, and stir fries ($13.50-$15.50) will have you salivating while you try and choose just one. Remember to leave room for roti with condensed milk as a sweet ending (desserts $4.50-$7.50).

Ka Nhom Jeen at Middle Fish
I selected the Ka Nhom Jeen (Southern Thai fish curry with crab leg meat), which did not disappoint. Succulent pieces of crab meat accompanied with Thai vermicelli in a light coconut broth, with a side serving of raw vegetables.

Vegetarian omelette at Middle Fish
My two dining companions, regular diners at this place, both opted for the Thai style chicken omelette, with one requesting a vegetarian version. Both diners assured me that this was a dish worth ordering during every visit.

Fast and friendly service, fresh authentic Thai flavours, in a relaxed atmosphere frequented mostly by students and academics, Middle Fish is an ideal spot for breakfast, lunch and coffee; a place that I am hoping will open for dinner soon!
