Saute Thai Restaurant
18 Phillip St,
Parramatta, Sydney

Mlady and her friend Madame C decided to have a nice lunch. So we went to Saute Thai in Parramatta. The décor inside is nicely themed with lovely wooden floor boards.

It's stylish with red comfortable lounge type seating against the walls whilst other chairs are richly covered in a red and gold fabric. The kitchen is open and you can see how your very tasty and fragrant meals are created.

We arrived at noon and chose to sit outside which is still under cover, as it was a nice day. It did not take long for the chairs to become occupied. This place is popular!

It was relaxing sitting watching the business of Parramatta whilst we both sipped on cool and refreshing lemon, lime and bitters. Mlady thought that this made a nice change from her usual red wine and she was right. The menu is very diverse and there was so much to choose from but Mlady and Madame C chose to share a main as well as ordering an entrée.

As an entrée we chose the Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings. They were described in the menu as made up of  "water chestnuts and a vegetarian mixture wrapped in wanton pastry and steamed to perfection. Served with a mixture of chopped chillies, sweet soy sauce and brown vinegar". When they arrived they were show cased in a black slate type tray with the sauce in a separate dish. These really were very tasty. They were so fresh and full of the wonderful fillings and they certainly were "steamed to perfection".

We ordered a small steamed rice to accompany our shared main which was Penang Curry and we chose to have this with beef. The menu stated that this was "red curry flavoured with fresh red chilli paste and paprika, tossed with fresh red chilli, basil leaves and coconut milk". How good was this! The beef was nicely cooked as were the accompanying vegetables in the dish and we both loved the sauce. We soaked up as much of this oh so nice sauce with the rice.

The quality of the food here is good and the service is both friendly and helpful. It's a great place to sit with a friend, a few friends or socialise in a group.
