Review from Eatability

The service we received from the minute we were seated at our table was terrific. We were allowed to taste test the wine before purchasing and also received a verbal explanation of the specials menu.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for the first time recently as it had been recommended by a friend.

The service we received from the minute we were seated at our table was terrific. We were allowed to taste test the wine before purchasing and also received a verbal explanation of the specials menu.

We ended up ordering a Chilli Basil Stir-fry, Soft Shell Crab salad, a serving of coconut rice and a Massaman Curry. I thoroughly enjoyed the soft shell crab salad and it was a perfect starter selection prior our mains. The atmosphere was very vibrant around the restaurant and there is never a day when we walk past and this restaurant is not busy with a que of people waiting to be seated.

Our main dishes arrived and I have to say the Massaman curry was perfection. I think the portion size of this dish was a little bit smaller to what I am used to around our local thai restaurants, but you could surely taste the difference in quality. Unfortunately, the coconut rice was extremely bland and nothing made it stand out from normal basmati steamed rice which was disappointing.

We really love to share a serving of coconut rice during our meal and this would have to be the only criticism I have of Thai Pothong apart from the food value. The dishes here are more expensive then other Thai restaurants but at least you know that you are guaranteed to eat a good meal.
