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.

  1. We definitely have this type of experience all the time. We have a delicious burger place that we go to here that just has terrible service, a pretentious atmosphere and is very slow. But we continue to go because they have the best burgers in town! http://www.ourfoodieappetite.com/traveling-to-dubai-20-things-we-wish-we-knew-part-1/

    1. Hi guys, cheers for getting in touch. Isn’t it funny how that happens sometimes. I often find that it’s something to laugh about afterwards. At the end of the day ot all comes down to the taste 😉

    1. Yeah it was a really delicious meal! I think it made it better being part of a large group because we didn’t notice the wait as much. I have heard that it’s much easier to get a seat as a smaller group. Really enjoyed that dinner 🙂
