Advice: Go with friends and share the dishes.
Loved the pink theme of the bright and spacious room with high ceilings and decorative light fixtures. Specializing in Thai street food with inventive dishes that will wow your senses.
I was in for lunch this week and ate my way through a variety of dishes, to start the Spicy Butterfly Butter Jumbo Tiger Prawn ($6) with butter, swirled egg, curry leaves and peppercorn. Next the Floating Market ($7) was flavorful, spicy and wowed my palate, deep fried spinach tempura and tiger prawns served with a spicy Thai applesauce which has much more than apples in the sauce.
For the main dishes I shared several and these were my favourites the delicious Keang Panang Pia ($12) Panang curry with salmon; the Pad Thai ($11) with tamarind and soft shell crab; the Coconut Curry ($12) with braised ox-tail and pumpkin; and the delicious and refreshing Pia – Salmon ($12) seared salmon with fresh lemongrass, lime juice topped with cashew nuts and sliced apples.
Of course dessert is a must for any of my meals as I always enjoy a sweet ending, I had the outstanding and simple Pineapple Surprise ($5) grilled Pineapple topped with vanilla ice cream. My beverage of choice was the cool Thai Iced Tea!
You’ll find the menu to be adventurous and full of flavours from tapas to soups, curries to garden greens, veggies to wok and more!
