After a trip to Thailand everyone always expects the best tucker – after all, you’ve been spoilt with fabulous flavours and scrumptious spices overpowering your tastebuds; you want to match that at home. They might not be as spicy, but the delicious dishes just keep on coming at Thai Lantern, with head chef Alex Teerasphanan leading the team, producing quality meals in an authentic Thai setting.
The dark wooden decor, mustard walls, bamboo ceiling and freshly cut flowers all create a tropical feel. The menu offers a wide range of appetisers, soups, salads, Thai curries, a charcoal grill, seafood, stir-fries and noodles, but their signature dish is goong choo chee, fresh king prawns cooked in a tangy curry sauce with lime leaves and coconut milk.
They’re also vegetarian-friendly, with a wide range of main meals and snacks. Wash it all down with a ;speciality tea’ while relaxing to the serene sounds of instrumentals and piano chords.
