Green Apple Salad (deep fried soft shell crab topped with green apple salad dressing)
Pad Thai with prawns
Tofu Combo (tofu and mixed vegetable tempura served with crushed peanuts and sweet chilli sauce)
Yellow Grilled Chicken Curry
Great for those who can’t do spicy.
Red Roasted Duck Curry
Minced Chicken Larb (hand roasted then grounded rice, crushed dry chilli, mint, red onion)
Cha Yen (Thai iced tea)
Just like it is in Thailand: intensely sweet.
There was only one reason why I wanted to come here: crepe cakes. So when we were told that the maker of these popular desserts was on holiday in Thailand and that there were no crepe cakes available that night, I was DEVASTATED. The waitress tried to tempt us with some of their other desserts but none of them seemed on par with the crepe cakes. But luckily the other food we sampled that night was thoroughly enjoyable so I didn’t leave the place feeling completely disappointed. I was told by a friend that portion sizes had reduced over time, so we simply ordered an extra dish to compensate. The atmosphere was lively while service was average as it was difficult getting the staff’s attention at times. In any case, I must return one day for those sought after crepe cakes!
