Since 1995, this 30-seat restaurant has been serving up tasty Thai delights to North Shore residents and everyone who crosses the bridge for some fun dining. The restaurant is cozy and authentic; it’s very easy to spot from the street with its bright blue and yellow façade. The unpretentious atmosphere and warm service will have you feeling right at home as you decide on your dishes. While you’re waiting, enjoy a Thai beer (perfect to wash down spicy dishes) and leaf through the Thai travel brochures.
South Pacific Spice
So what to eat? Thai dishes typically come in chicken, pork, prawn or tofu varieties. Some popular flavours are garlic, lemon grass, coriander, Thai basil, peanut, coconut and ginger. Thai food has a large range of choices including appetizers like chicken satay sticks served with peanut sauce, soups that are spicy chili and served with your choice of ingredients (like prawn, lemongrass and chicken) and noodles like the popular pad thai. There are several vegetarian options like the “swimming rama” (spinach and tofu served with peanut sauce), stir fried spinach with oyster sauce and tofu with spicy sauce.
Curry For All
Curry is a very popular Thai dish that is served in a few different ways. You can have it served with prawn, chicken, pork, tofu and vegetables. Curries come in three different varieties: red, green and yellow. Depending on your palate and your protein of choice, each curry offers a different taste. You can order most dishes to your taste by a chili scale (1 being the most mild to 4 being the most spicy). Curry dishes are best eaten with a basmati or fried rice in order to enjoy the rich and flavourful curry sauce.
