It may look like your average neighbourhood Thai restaurant but Authentic Thai is anything but!
I wandered in with my husband on a Friday night, and we were immediately greeted by the friendly staff and incredible aromas coming from the kitchen. The restaurant was filling up quickly (it was almost 6pm) but we managed to get a table outside.
We ordered the fish special, which was fresh caught local perch with tamarind (you can choose your own sauce), jungle duck with deep fried basil and stir fried vegetables and coconut rice.
The duck was succulent and the basil delicious but not overpowering, with bangs of flavour. When our fish arrived, our expectations continued to be exceeded. The light coating was crisp and delicate, and the fish so fresh it melted in the mouth. The tamarind flavour worked beautifully with the fish and the vegetables were fresh and crisp. By the end of the meal we were already planning our next visit.
Don’t let appearances fool you - the location may be a bit out of the way, but the food and the service are absolutely outstanding. In fact I’d go so far to say that you’d be hard pressed to find a better Thai restaurant outside of Thailand.
Do yourself a favor and visit this exceptional restaurant. Highly recommend!
