Located in the heart of Paddington’s famous Five Ways is Eat Thai, a family-owned restaurant serving up delicious and authentic Thai dishes. We fell in love with the charming façade of the Eat Thai building and opted to sit outside to enjoy the view, the cool evening breeze, and the bustling atmosphere of this trendy suburb.
Our first starter was Peking Duck Pancakes which were thin pancake cigars filled with shredded duck, sweet hoisin sauce, and fresh cut vegetables.
Described as a popular Thai street treat, the Betel Leaf with Scallops was a must-try for starters! This dish featured an aromatic mixture of fried garlic, onions, coconut, herbs and spices wrapped up in Betel Leaves with sweet grilled scallops. We would have been happy to feast on these little parcels of deliciousness and nothing else.
We wrapped up our first course with crispy vegetarian spring rolls. Simple, classic and perfectly cooked!
Suckers for a classic, we couldn’t pass up the Prawn Pad Thai as one of our main dishes. These fine rice noodles tossed with a homemade Pad Thai sauce and egg, and topped with a pile of prawns, bean sprouts, lemon, crushed peanuts and chilli, were everything we wanted and more from this Thai go-to.
The Vegetarian Tofu Green Curry was the perfect meat-free option for a cool evening. It was creamy, spicy and filling! The curry was packed with a variety of fresh vegetables including baby eggplant, broccoli, carrot, beans and more. We couldn’t get enough of this dish – it packed a real punch and is a great choice for anybody who enjoys a little heat. We selected a side of fluffy brown rice which soaked up all the aromatic coconut based curry sauce, and left us feeling full, warm and very happy!
It is evident that each dish we ordered at Eat Thai was lovingly hand made with fresh ingredients. The look and feel of the space added to our authentic Thai experience at this much-loved family run establishment, and the constantly filled tables are a testament to the hard work and beautiful culture of the team who run this restaurant.
