With the  succulent Chicken hormok (minced chicken cakes) and Wok tossed prawns prepping us, in came the mains. While the staples were the usual Wok tossed Thai noodles and a rice,the lamb dish Patani deserves a special mention. However, we had the best yet to come… the DESSERTS!

Wok Tossed Prawns
Chicken Hormok
Keang Kiew wan koong- fried fish with lime leaves and thai herbs


Phad Sai Yea – Wok tossed rice noodles in dark soy and basil sauce
Patani – Stir fried lamb with ginger , spring onion, chilli, and thai ginger


Tom Yum Khao Phad Kai- Thai hot and sour fried rice with vegetables and chicken

I can easily vouch that  their Kaffir Lime Crème Brulee with candied ginger tuile is the best in town.

And if you just thought you had it all, wait for that White chocolate wasabi cream with red wine sauce and dried berry meringue for that final moment of awe.
