Pad Thai

(stir fried thin rice noodles with chicken, dried shrimps, bean sprouts, garlic, peanuts and chives in a tamarind and palm sugar sauce)

We found this a bit too sweet otherwise a very delicious pad Thai!

Mhu Bhing (grilled pork skewer) and Gai Satay (chicken satay skewer)

Both were good but I probably enjoyed the pork more so than the chicken.

★★★☆☆

Todt Mun Goong (prawn cakes with pickled plum relish)

Excellent crispy batter and a flavoursome dipping sauce.

★★★★☆

Gai Todt (crisp fried coconut milk marinated chicken with smoked chilli relish)

I was curious to see whether the chicken would taste any different with the coconut milk marinate.  It didn’t. Just tasted like normal chicken.

Milky, sweet and oh-so-delicious!

Overall:

Hands down the best Thai food I’ve had outside of Thailand and my mum’s kitchen. The menu here is huge and chock-full of authentic Thai dishes. The atmosphere was bustling, the service quick, and the staff all Thai. I have nothing else to say but CHAT THAI, PLEASE COME TO MELBOURNE!

Overall:

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!
