One Thai is a colourful and friendly BYO restaurant in a suburban shopping stretch that's usually very crowded, so the option to takeaway can be practical. A long-standing and popular eatery in Balwyn North, One Thai is filled with a lovely aroma, vibrant colours and plenty of smiles.

Three things struck us when we last went to One Thai. The first was the aroma – a lovely complex bundle of spices, vegetables and herbs. The second was the colour – a rich red on the walls, which are hung with paintings and mementos of Thailand. The third was the number of people. Even early in the week, the place was packed. There are good reasons for that: it’s pleasing food to eat, the prices are affordable, and it’s very comfortable.

Like most Asian food, this is best shared. Curry puffs are a good way to start – light and savoury, as they should be. There’s a mixed entree but everything is deep-fried, so we’d suggest choosing your own selection or sharing the larb gai, a traditional Thai salad with chicken, chilli, mint and herbs, and some cucumber and red onion. The curries aren’t ferociously hot, partly because the chilli heat is toned down by coconut milk. I know people who come here just for the red duck curry. There are stir-fries too, both mild and hot, and a range of seafood dishes including some rather good lemongrass prawns. A plus is that it’s BYO. Another plus is the delivery option for takeaway, and a 10 per cent discount if you collect your own, which is probably a good idea on those nights when the place is packed.
