Koko Thai

Compared to other cuisines, North Adelaide has a fair number of Thai restaurants. Koko Thai is the latest to join the group, but interestingly enough, the last two restaurants at the same location were also Thai. Tonight, Adelaide Food Central was invited to sample some of the dishes that Koko Thai had to offer. All…

Pattaya Thai – Somerton Park

It was just over a year ago that I ate at Pattaya Thai in North Adelaide. Little did I know, they also had a restaurant in Somerton Park. If external appearance is anything to go by, the Somerton Park store is like the ugly cousin. The external signs are faded and graffiti is written all…

Cafe 82

For anyone that follows me on Instagram, they would know that Grange Beach is my favourite place to be as the sun goes down. Fortunate for me, there are two Thai cafes, one very close to the beach front, and the other, Cafe 82, located towards the end of Grange Road, a bit further away…

Jing Thai

Jing Thai is located in a small shopping complex just off Morphett Road in Morphettville. Run by a Chinese couple, the menu not surprisingly a mixture of Chinese and Thai dishes. Their offerings are divided into entrees, soups, curries and your various proteins. The shop is very small and can only accommodate for 8 people….

Casuarina Malaysian Bistro

Casuarina is located on the first floor of Westfield Marion at the base of the cinemas. This place has been here for well over a decade so I imagine they must be doing something right. If you come here at lunchtime, you only get to see the lunchtime menu which is divided into noodle, rice…

Golden Charm Thai

Golden Charm is located on the quieter western side of the city towards the West Terrace end. There are roughly two dozen dishes to choose from with many of the classic favourites on offer. These include a selection of noodles, curries, stir fried dishes and soups. Like all good establishments, they also have a lunch…

Natee Thai – Relocated Store

Natee Thai is located on the western end of Jetty Road, literally metres away from Glenelg Beach. It had humble beginnings on Pulteney Street in the city and has since moved and replaced what used to be the Oyster Shop. The menu looks vaguely familiar but is full of your traditional Thai favourites. Like all…

Blue Ginger

Blue Ginger is located in small alleyway just off Moseley Square in Glenelg. The moderately sized menu is very pan-Asian with Chinese, Thai and Indian influences. The decor is fairly basic with dated cafe furnishings. It does have bi-fold doors which integrate the outdoor with the indoor dining areas. It also allows plenty of natural…

Silk and Spice

Having driven past this place many times, I actually had no idea Silk and Spice existed, let alone the fact that this restaurant has been around for over 5 years. Silk and Spice is located in a renovated bungalow on the busy Henley Beach Road. Excluding the specials, there are over 40 dishes to choose…

Pranee Thai

While driving down Brighton Road aimlessly, I came across Pranee Thai which is located in a small shopping complex in North Brighton. Unlike other Thai restaurants that have dozens of dishes on their menu, Pranee, the Thai chef, chooses to focus on only 18 popular Thai dishes. All of the dishes are gluten free, lactose…

Glenelg Spices

As someone who constantly walks past this place, I’ve always been confused as to the actual setup of this place. Is it a Thai and Malaysian restaurant? Is it a Japanese restaurant? Is it a Korean restaurant? To answer your questions, it’s all three under the one roof. The first front half as you enter…

Phuket Thai

Phuket Thai is one of the few Thai restaurants that I haven’t been to, however, it was comforting to see a TV personality and a few friends dining at the establishment during my first visit. The menu is extensive and authentic with all your traditional Thai favourites. Deciding what to order proved to be the…
