If you’re after basic but traditional Thai without any kerfuffle then Tarin Thai is the place to go. You’ll find a simple design, creative dishes and a relaxed atmosphere every night of the week. This restaurant likes its red, from the tiles to the walls, chairs and even serviettes, which makes it a bright place to dine.
The total glass frontage offers views of bustling Burgundy Street too. Traditional Thai artwork hangs on the walls, and the menu – made from light-coloured bark and embellished with metal decorations of Thai elephants – takes you back to Chiang Mai. Perfect for couples or intimate groups, Tarin offers all your classic Thai dishes and some variations on your favourite curries. It satisfies the fussiest diners and offers a large vegetarian menu, and you’ll even be sure to find something delicious for the kids.
The friendly staff make for a very relaxed dinner, whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just feel like heading out for a delicious dinner minus the fuss.
