Red Ass

I’ve eaten at Red Ass a very long time ago when they were based in the city. I can’t quite remember what the experience was like, but it was only a short time after that they moved to Semaphore. Located on the busy Semaphore Road cafe precinct, Red Ass specialises in Thai and Indian cuisine. The menu is divided up into entrees, soups, salads, noodles, curries, stir fries and rice dishes. Some of the dishes are available as vegetarian options and/or gluten free, and the chilli rating comes in handy for those who don’t like it hot.

For dinner, I ordered the Chicken Pad Thai. The dish came out after a 15 minute wait and was average in presentation. The noodles were firm and not too gluggy, and the chicken thigh fillets were tender and succulent. The bean sprouts and peanuts were mixed in at the time of cooking which reduced the crunchy texture of the dish. Too much ground dried prawns were added to the dish making it very salty and overpowering. The taste just wasn’t right, and neither was the colour of the dish.

The staff were friendly and the service was good. The atmosphere was relaxed on this wet and windy night, however the pricing was higher than average. Pad Thai is not expensive to make so $18.90 is a bit pricey. For that price, I would have expected the best Pad Thai ever, but even then, the execution wasn’t on point.
