Located along Greenhill Road in Hazelwood Park, Samui Thai offers a good range of delectable Thai food. The restaurant is quite popular with the locals, attracting a decent crowd during the dinner hours.

Offered as a special, the Curry Crab consisted of deep-fried pieces of soft-shell crab covered by yellow curry gravy. The pieces of crab were fried to golden brown and the curry gravy elevated their taste with a spicy hit. The inclusion of egg in the gravy gave it a slightly thick texture that did not mar the crisp coating of the crab.

Also known as Green Papaya Salad, the Som Tum had a generous amount of green papaya to provide the crisp texture and refreshing taste that Green Papaya Salad is known for. While the dressing gave the dish a tangy flavour, we thought there was not enough to make the dish moreish. Some crunch was also provided by the cashew nuts mixed in the salad. The best Green Papaya Salad that we have tasted in Adelaide is still that at Aranya Thai Restaurant.

Great for stopping your hunger pangs while awaiting your main meals, the crisp coating of the Golden Wings contrasted well with the juicy flesh. The wings having been marinated before cooking made them particularly scrumptious. If you wish to add another layer of flavour, you can dip them in the sweet chilli sauce provided.

Aside from their main menu, the restaurant offers a selection of dishes priced from $10 during lunchtime on Thursdays and Fridays. The ambience of the restaurant is quite cosy despite the tables being a bit close to each other. Parking is available in front of the restaurant and along Glynburn Road.
