Ms I had recommended that we check out this very popular Thai restaurant.
So after we had settled down in our ultra lovely apartment in Meriton Campbell, we strolled to Chat Thai, which was right next door, thinking that it was still rather early. Erm, apparently at 5pm, we were not early enough, haha!
After some confusion, a friendly customer directed us to tear off the number on a sheet at the entrance, which turned out to be the queue number. You could also leave your name and phone number, but based on what we saw, if you were not waiting nearby when they called your queue number, they would just move on to the next number 😛
It was a fairly quick wait, and we ordered Gai Satay (Chicken Satay, A$2.50 each), Mhu Bhing (Grilled Pork Skewers, A$2.50 each), Fresh Spring Rolls (A$12), Gaeng Keaw Gai (Green Curry with Chicken, Apple Eggplants, A$15), and Ki Mao (Stir Fried Wide Rice Noodles, A$14).
Now we know why this place is so popular!
We enjoyed everything that we ordered. The grilled pork skewer was definitely a winner! The fresh spring rolls made of smoked fish sausages, chicken and crab with caramelised tamarind relish was something new to us. It was served cold and the sweet sauce went well with it. The green curry was filled with seemingly endless ingredients and was much more value-for-money compared to the one we had in Melbourne. The wide rice noodles was great kway teow with good wok hei.
This was a fantastic first meal in Sydney, and we were so excited in anticipation of more good food to come 🙂
