My first visit for a while, as father-in-law preferred the now defunct Thai Time, but I realised what I've been missing. I'd always thought that this was more "rustic" than the fancier Thai Time, but the flavours of the food were so defined and delicate and this was the best Thai I've had in ages! Nan was our waitress and what a lovely girl she was. We went for the set menu for 4 people and it delivered in every way. The starters were a delicious dim sum each, two small prawn toasts, a prawn fried in filo, a small spring roll, a piece of chicken on a stick and a Thai fish cake and we each had a little dish of dipping sauces, the peanut one and a chilli one (nice touch to have our own dish of sauces). These little tasters were scrumptious and certainly boded well for the mains to come. Our mains were absolutely superb!! A lovely big bowl of jasmine white rice brought to us by Rut who was excellent and kept an eye on everything and brought us extra cutlery and JoJo who was lovely and brought us the lovely warmed plates (nice touch that our plates were warmed - not many restaurants do this I feel). We had a seafood yellow curry which was extremely fishy and spicy - not a massive amount which worried the men in our party but ended up the perfect amount as it was so filling and spicy. Along with this was a wonderfully fragrant and hot chicken with chilli and basil, some lovely chickeny Pad Thai noodles, a zingy pork with ginger, some nice sweet and sour prawns and a stonkingly good sizzling beef in oyster sauce. All of these dishes were beautifully different with their individual spices and tasted epic! We had two very nice bottles of the house red (Monsoon Valley) - light and drinkable. The atmosphere in the olde worlde restaurant was warm, soothing and cosy - we had a lovely table up at the back, overlooking the little green area outside. So glad to have visited again and proved myself right that this has always been the best Thai around! Thank you for a lovely evening, My Thai.
