After exploring a few places on Eat Street, a row of restaurants and dessert bars on Church St, we stumbled upon Saute Thai!
For dinner, we ordered two meals to share – the Green Curry with Fish Fillet and Sticky Rice, and the Chicken Pad Thai. We found the pad thai to be quite ordinary, with quite a lot of sauce and a good amount of chicken and fresh bean sprouts, but not particularly spectacular. We also would’ve liked more peanuts in the dish.
The Green Curry however was delicious! Slightly spicy and very rich and flavourful, it went perfectly with the sticky rice, which was best eaten soaked in curry. The fish was a bit dry, but otherwise suited the curry very well. Note that we thought that the sticky rice looked like a small portion, since we were intending to share, but once we started eating it was fairly heavy, so it’s definitely better shared.
For a Saturday night, the restaurant was not too busy, which was great, so service was quite quick. We did get the pad thai and sticky rice together, but it would’ve been better coming out with the curry. The waitress also forgot to bring water and there was no dried chilli available to eat with the dishes, which was a bit disappointing. The tables were comfortable and nicely spaced out, and the interior was decorated with cultural paintings, which was a cool experience!
For authentic Thai cuisine at reasonable prices, go no further than Saute Thai – and definitely order a curry and rice!
