We had just been told by at a local café that they were too busy to serve my daughter chips unless we bought a meal with chips. They also only serve breakfast until 12 and we were just after that so we couldn't order avocado smash that we had purposefully returned for. I thought that this was just a bit too inflexible and the kids didn't fancy much else on the menu so we took a walk up the road to discover a café with much better service (albeit more expensive) – the Naam Pla Thai.
We felt warmly welcomed and really enjoyed every selection we made. The waiter was grinning from ear to ear everytime he talked to us. We chose four of their starters: chicken skewers, spring rolls,
... and the chips of course. The chicken skewers were very small but very tender. The spring rolls were delicious and stuffed full of fresh vegetables. I enjoyed the vegetable gyozo with the chili sauce provided on the table. While this was just lunch it was a small meal and we could have ordered more. At about $14 per serve it wasn't a budget meal but it was a lovely place to go.
Naam Pla Thai has a large menu including many vegetarian options. The food is fresh and served hot straight from the wok. I saw some share meals on the other tables and they looked great.
This is a classy restaurant with ambient lighting, fine styling and comfortable furniture. I noticed there were large groups of people there who looked like they were celebrating some special event. It does not look like a restaurant for kids but they catered for them nevertheless.
