In Sydney for the City to Surf and we had picked up a voucher for a three course dinner with additional drinks at the Nok Nok Thai Eating House. The restaurant is on a quieter area of Darling Harbour and has a nice light and open feel and is not too noisy inside. We aren't keen on having to yell over our plates.
After tossing up between a mixed entrée or one choice of our own each, we went the mixed entrée which had to be shared. The dish included two light and delicious Curry Puffs, two tantalising Chicken Skewers with a great Satay Sauce on the side, two tasty Thai Fish Cakes with a gorgeous dipping sauce as well as two Fantastic Spring Rolls. The portions weren't tiny and it was the start of a very memorable meal.
In true to myself style, I went for the Massaman. Beef was this restaurants option, chicken is my favourite but a good Massaman makes you happy no matter the beast. I am a half glass full type of person and am not big on writing negative reviews. I give credit where it is due and Nok Nok's Massaman is right up there with the best I've had! The meat as it should be for an awesome long slow cooked dish had that perfect blend of meat and fat and just fell apart. Fantastic quality potatoes, lovely crunchy peanuts and the crowning glory of the dish, the sauce! The sauce was perfect! Perfect! Sweet, just hot enough (spice that is, all dishes were served seconds from hitting the pass), salty, sour, succulent and silky.
A just the right size Sticky Rice with Thai Custard and lovely Coconut Ice Cream to finish, and we were finished. In all we were a group of four, and we couldn't clear all the plates even after sharing around a bit. Everyone was extremely happy with the meal and the ladies waiting our table looked after us very nicely, Thank You. I won't go into everyone's choices but every dish was first class.
I hope this restaurant doesn't get too big or busy, because they have a great thing going here and I will gladly come back and recommend it to anyone.
