Thaihouse cafe restaurant in Apollo Bay is a gorgeous and picturesque spot for holiday makers wishing for a delicious and quick meal, as well as couples looking for a romantic evening out.

It is located on Pascoe Street, which is one block inland from the main street yet very easy to locate. The area housing the restaurant is wonderfully quiet and away from the buzz of the main street, which my party of 1 and I found welcome for our dining experience.

The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating and is open from 5 - 9.30pm, which appears to be the norm for Apollo Bay.

We chose an outdoor seat and were greeted quickly with a super friendly waitress who provided us with water and menus to peruse.

Thai is one of my favourite cuisines and the food was tasty, true and well portioned. From the bountiful menu offering the usual Thai food suspects, we ordered for main a classic chicken green curry that was perfectly spicy with an abundance of veg and meat in a light green curry sauce ($22.50)

Our second dish was the spicy satay salad, which for me was an absolute winner. The Thai salad with a twist was composed of crisp cos lettuce, plump tomatoes, cucumber, perfect avocado, sliced boiled eggs, coriander, peanut shavings and the most heavenly warm satay sauce I have tasted in some time ($14.95). It normally comes with gluten free rice noodle chips, which I chose not to have.

To share we also ordered a small serving of coconut rice that was extremely generous in its size and appeared more like a large serve, leaving plenty for two people ($3.50). Our party of two also took advantage of the advertised Thai beer special of Changi or Singha beer for $5.50 a bottle.

The restaurant offers both in dining and take-away meal and was reasonably priced, with quick, observant and friendly staff and really fantastic food.
