These days, most restaurants are lucky if they last a year! Not so with Nu Thai which was first established in 2004. It has been since 2014 that Nu Thai had moved to a modern, spacious premises on Morphett Street.
These dumplings are almost like wontons swimming in a creamy curry sauce. Each dumpling is filled with minced chicken and prawn, and wrapped in a soft, delicate dumpling skin. Packed full of flavour, this the perfect way to start any meal.
Chicken Satay Skewers
You really can’t go past chicken satay skewers. Coming in a serve of three, the chicken was grilled to perfection. Accompanying the chicken was a thick satay dipping sauce which made the entree complete.
Green Papaya Salad
We don’t normally make friends with salad but we will on this occasion. The combination of papaya, bean sprouts, carrot, cherry tomato and fried sweet potato were an amazing combination. The dressing had a real kick to it and added some excitement to the day.
We always order the Pad Thai at every Thai restaurant. This one was more beautifully presented than those we’ve had in recent times. The noodles were cooked just right and worked perfectly with the tender chicken breast and tofu. Crushed peanuts and chilli were put to one side, and were to be added as needed.
Roast Duck Curry
Duck curry has to be one of my favourites. Crispy morsels of roast duck swam in a delicious curry sauce. The lychee, cherry tomatoes and pineapple balanced the spiciness with some natural sweetness.
Nu Thai is open Thursday and Friday for lunch from 12pm–3pm, and Monday to Saturday for dinner from 5pm–10pm, closing later at 10:30pm on Friday and Saturday evenings.
