If you’re lucky enough to have ever ventured to Thailand I’m sure you will have lasting memories of the people, the scenery, the culture and most importantly the food. Some things you just can’t bring home with you, resulting in living vicariously through your old Instagram photos in a tropical fever dream. The one thing you can enjoy at home is the food; sumptuous spices, seasonings and smells that will take you back to that carefree paradise you’re yearning for and who knows, it may just be enough to tide you over until you can get on a flight again.

Dine in or take away – you’re guaranteed satisfaction either way. Stir fry, salad, curry… they’ve even got a section on their menu simply called ‘delicious’. And fair enough. It would be difficult to pinpoint just one or two things that I’m craving so just take a look through the menu and see for yourself! Why not buy a gift voucher and share the delectable love?

Everyday life is so full of options that sometimes it’s tough to make a decision. Gin Long Canteen simplify this for you; Eat small or Eat big. With sumptuous dishes available on both sides including Green Rice Squid (small) and Dragon Beef Curry (big) why not just get a mixture and live the best of both worlds.

Have you ever seen dumplings hand crafted into the shape of a flower? Because I hadn’t until now. It would seem cruel to eat something so cute and dainty but my god I just can’t stop thinking about Social Street’s chicken and seafood ‘Seaflower’ dumpling. If anyone needs me, I’ll be complaining that all of my food isn’t crafted into flower shapes from now. Gluten free and plant-based options are available too, so it’s fun for the whole gang.

Decently priced and endless offerings, even if your tastebuds are delicate like mine you’re in for a treat at Siam 49 Thai. Using fragrant herbs such as basil, roots like ginger and garnishing with cashew nuts, there is such a magnificent array of flavours, meats and vegetables that you’ll just have to go back again to slowly work your way through the menu.

If you’re immediately attracted to somewhere from how good the exterior looks, just imagine how great the interior is. This is discoverable at 8020bk as you venture in, take a seat, are handed a cocktail named ‘prick me up’ (worth ordering purely for the name) and are looked after by staff who know their stuff. Don’t think this is just for dinner – try their lunch menu for a mid-day treat.

What you really want from an Asian eatery is authenticity – it’s such a lovely touch when you’re being looked after by people who really know their stuff and recipes that have been handed down generations. Judging from Nu Thai’s menu items including ‘Grandma’s Pork’, we’re in for a treat. There is even a heat-gage on their menu in the form of little chili images as a warning for the more sensitive palleted.

Piled high and looking like an artist’s creation – a fantastic assault on your senses as you’re hit square on with fragrant, colourful, mouth-watering masterpiece. This is the place to head in particular if you’re a seafood lover; multiple options are at your mercy including chilli and basil fish and stuffed squid curry.
