K had done some work for Nu Thai and had to drop it off to them so we thought we might as well have dinner there as well.
I’ve only been to Nu Thai once when they were on located Gouger Street. Their new venue on Morphett Street is 4 times bigger and so spacious.
The place was already packed out when we arrived but there was still plenty of tables available.
I ordered the home made lemon iced tea to start off with. It was very refreshing and unique with hints of cinnamon.
We ordered a few entrees to share between us.
The betel leaves with prawns were very sweet and K didn’t like it very much. I too found it quite sweet but I didn’t mind as I have more of a sweet tooth.
The grilled scallops were plump and juicy and served with traditional nahm jim sauce.
The fish cakes were also juicy and flavourful with lots of lemongrass.
I found the chargrilled squid a bit chewy but K absolutely loved the smokey flavour from the chargrilling.
The salt and pepper bug tails were beautifully moist. The batter was very light and crispy and the dish was perfectly seasoned. This was the stand out dish for me.
I think anyone that goes to a Thai restaurant has to order pad thai. It is seriously one of my favourite Thai dishes. I prefer mine a little more on the saucier side but the combination of crunchy peanuts and fresh bean sprouts with wok tossed noodles and tangy lemon was still very good.
A really nice Thai place with modern elements. The food was good and I liked that it was located just off from the very busy Gouger Street but still within walking distance.
