For a quick work lunch, we headed down to Ultimo for some quality Thai food at Chang Siam.
I ordered Pad Thai with beef, which was great value for money with the $8.90 lunch special deal, which gives you a smaller portion, and is just the right quantity. I decided to go with a spicier version, and it was really delicious, without the overly sweet taste of some pad-thai dishes. Make sure you request extra spice if that’s your preference, as they’re happy to add it in to the dish.
Around the table, my friends had Pad Thai with seafood and the chicken version as well, and Pad Se Ew. Everyone really liked their dishes, and the lighter portion size was a big hit. There’s also the option of getting a lunch combo set for $12, which comes with an entree, main meal and drink – perfect for a bigger lunch!
There was no wait for a table, and very quick turnover when we went, which was perfect for a short lunch. Pay and order at the counter, and your food is delivered to your table. The interior decor is very clean, with wooden tables and plenty of seating. Of course, there’s always the option of take-away as well, which I’ve done in the past too.
I thoroughly enjoyed my Pad Thai, and loved the smaller potion size concept that Chang Siam has introduced. For a quick and small Thai lunch, this is the perfect spot!
