Finding a good Thai restaurant in Delhi NCR is a tough job, specially when you are looking for authentic Thai. Specially when it’s Gurgaon you are left with hardly 1-2 options. A friend of mine spotted this restaurant while passing by and convinced me come that far for lunch.
Now about the restaurant. A simple yet elegant setup is what the place have, they have a huge open sitting which will be apt for the coming winters. They do have indoor sitting but max they can accommodate is 20 pax.
Coming to the food, while in conversation with the manager we came to know that they have a Chef from Thailand who is taking care of the food. No doubt their food is not indianised and very close to authentic Thai. So we started our meal with SEA FOOD SALAD which had a tangy flavour to it. Loaded with Prawns and some greens it was preety good. WASABI PRAWNS is a must order dish from their menu, Prawns coated with a dressing that had Wasabi, Bell Pepper and Mayonnaise. I love Prawns and I loved the dish to its core. PRAWN SPRING ROLLS were also good, jumbo Prawns rolled in a Filo sheet and deep fried. CHICKEN NORI a different dish for me, Minced chicken with some herbs is wrapped in a NORI sheet and deep fried. Do try their PORK RIBS as they are awesome, ribs perfectly cooked and tossed in red wine sauce. CHICKEN PENANG Curry with STICKY RICE a perfect combo meal. The Curry was mild in spices and went well with Rice. COCONUT FRIED RICE never had something like this the rice had coconut flavour and you can have it solo without any gravy dish.
The chef insisted us to try HOT POT as it is their specialty. So the setup is made to sit the pot of Broth on the table and bring it to boil, a strainer like vessel is put upside down in the hot pot. Now you put your fav meat or fish on the strainer and let it steam cook. It takes hardly 2-3 MTS for the meat or fish to cook and you can eat straight from the hot pot. It’s just like BBQ but here food is cooked through steam. Something new and interesting.
Finally the desserts. As they have a bakery so freshly baked cakes were a choice but as I search for something different and new I opted for Coconut Jelly. Here the pulp of a tender Coconut and coconut water is turned into a jelly desserts. I simply loved it. Honestly I can have a bowl full of coconut jelly everyday.
