That’s Sugi whom I suspect is following me. I bumped into him last night at the frozen yoghurt place too. I think he is the fiancé’s spy. There he is ‘entertaining’ his ‘business clients’ but really turning to spy on me… haha.. I’m only kidding.
For the mains, we ordered a special – which was the grilled barramundi green curry. It was delicious although I craved the authentic Thai vegetables that the curries in longrain had.
Karin enjoyed the salt and pepper tofu which was made fusion by the julienned apple salad that it was served with. It was fried for too long – making it hard instead of letting some softness of the tofu remain. Once again, the one I had at longrain was wayyy better. Nahm Thai is actually considered the best Thai restaurant in Perth… is that possible?
There were four desserts on the menu – of which this dessert is the one that Dennis did not recommend. He was always suggesting the ‘safe’ dishes like Lemon tart or glutinous rice with mango. Fortunately, we decided to go against his recommendations (which is unusual for me) and boy was this good.
This is the mung bean dumpling in a palm sugar sauce and topped with coconut cream. It was warm and the glutinous skin tore softly between your teeth allowing the mung bean filling to ooze into your mouth in such a comforting manner. The sauce was perfect – that even health conscious Karin scooped a few more spoonfuls down.
Overall, service was good. You can bring a date here and have a conversation. The food was tasty but did not meet expectations. For a place that is supposed to be of a high standard, I was disappointed. Nahm Thai gets an overall 7 from me.
