Located in the North Adelaide Village shopping centre, Toptai Restaurant is known for winning the award for Best Thai Restaurant in South Australia. Judging from the various times I ate there, I can agree that they deserve that tittle. There is ample parking space in the North Adelaide Village shopping centre, but it can sometimes fill up quickly during the peak dinner hour.

The dishes we ordered during our most recent visit were the Spicy Barramundi, Basil Chicken and Fresh Lemongrass Stir Fry. One of our favourites is the Spicy Barramundi, as the deep fried pieces of barramundi had a crispy coating that contrasted wonderfully with the perfectly cooked fish. It was tossed with chilli to give it some zing and the fried basil leaves gave an extra element of texture.

The Basil Chicken had tender pieces of chicken that was accompanied by a mixture of perfectly cooked vegetables. All of it was cooked with a delicious herbal sauce that helped to round out the flavour of the ingredients.

To help balance out the meat dishes, we ordered the Fresh Lemongrass Stir Fry made with seasonal vegetables. Just like the vegetables in the Basil Chicken, the vegetables in the Fresh Lemongrass Stir Fry were cooked just right. The lemongrass sauce also had a slight curry taste to give the dish a bit of a punch.
