It seems that the menus at most Thai restaurants appear very similar with only a few variants. Entrees always consist of spring rolls, curry puffs, dim sims, money bags and satays. The curry flavours are green, red, yellow, mussaman and Penang. Then there are the stir fries, noodles and rice dishes. The differences in the restaurant menu is usually in the chef's specials.
My husband loves Thai food and he usually isn't fussy where it comes from. He will eat it anywhere and anytime. I tend to only like really good Thai food.
So last Friday night we found ourselves at a small Thai restaurant in The Grange. My husband's choice. I didn't have have high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised with this place.
Our choices for the night was Fried Calamari for entree, Green Curry Prawns and Ginger Mixed Seafood Stir fry with coconut rice for main.
Wow, I was happy. The food arrived at the table and it looked fresh and had loads of vegetables with minimal oily residue. The calamari was lightly battered and melted in your mouth. The prawns and seafood were fresh and flavoursome. The meals had lots of fresh vegetables which I loved.
So are all Thai restaurants the same? No, some are okay, some are good and some like this little one in the Grange are really good. It certainly hit the spot in regards to flavour, food and service.
Relax and enjoy
Things to know - it is BYO, not very large seating area, take away facilities which kept staff very busy this particular Friday night. Staff and service was good. Parking area is out the back of restaurant as it is located near a busy corner.
So if my husband wants Thai food, I will definitely be steering him back to this particular Thai restaurant and we both will be happy.
