This tiny little nook of a restaurant has been in the neighbourhood since 1984, so North Carlton locals are very well acquainted with both the extensive menu and the owner come chef, Thanee Krunhom. Sleepy elevator-style music is piped through the sound system, adding a quirky touch to an otherwise comfortably casual atmosphere. The tables are laid out in shades of green and gold, with beautiful attention to detail, and the service is friendly and attentive.
The many regulars might not even need to look at the huge menu when choosing their dish, but newcomers are known to struggle with indecisiveness when it comes to making their selection. Asking the experts for advice and perhaps ordering a few dishes to share should take care of that problem. Favourites include a whole deep-fried seasonal fish in a combination of spices and served with sweet, sour and savoury Thai sauces. This flavour bombardment goes very nicely with the shredded paw paw salad, sprinkled with ground shrimp and peanuts seasoned with lemon juice and chilli. Add to that some homemade roti bread, and you have yourself one very tasty meal. If it’s a lazy night in you’re after, the takeaway menu is just as satisfying as the dine-in offerings.
