The one hour wait on a busy Friday 31 July, 2015 was totally worth it for flavoursome food cooked with care and almost in an instant – 3.5 out of 5.
Dining at Home Thai with a group of 6 we were allocated a table just after 7.30pm. One of the benefits of being part of a large group however was that we were completely oblivious to the wait time. I was very impressed by the helpful and prompt service. Within minutes of placing an order our food was ready to be eaten, cooked fresh and with care. To start we shared the Kao Kreab Pak Mhor ($6.90), rice flour dumplings filled with sweet peanuts, palm sugar and pork mince. I have to admit the blue colour made these the strangest dumplings I’ve ever eaten but they were delicious.
For mains we tucked into a refreshing Green Papaya Salad with Prawns, Calamari and Mussels ($13.90) tossed with cherry tomatoes, snake beans and pleanty of peanuts and chilli; tender strips of beef tossed in a fresh chill basil sauce with crispy basil leaves ($13.90); and I couldn’t resist the crispy pork belly with steamed chinese broccoli ($15.50) a guilty-pleasure which I have to admit I always order at any opportunity.
Though we had a while to be issued a seat, I was really impressed by the prompt service and fresh, flavoursome food. Will definitely make a return.
Happy Cooking and Keep Smiling, Brendon 🙂
