Street style Thai with its circular shaped venue not designed for massive groups so not the best choice for an office lunch. Very casual with indoor and outdoor options with some of the tables at awkward angles because of the incline leading to the main entrance of the residential and hotel properties adjacent to the venue.
I’m not that precious as some can be and I’m also not that switched on. It wasn’t actually until I got to the third spring roll when I asked the waitress whether or not the centre was meant to be cold and apparently not. I thought they were going for some kind of Fried Ice Cream – yin yang – hot cold effect until I realised this place is not Chinese, it’s Thai. They were nice enough to offer to re do the entree but I actually kind of liked it, as the vegetables were thawed out and it really did work on that hot day we had last week.
This is cheeky – the menu boasts 8 portions when in actual fact its 4 wings cut in half. It is a bite size share dish so it does make sense.
So the Panang here trumps the one two a few doors up (Tawadang) nice balance of the paste and coconut with generous meat and veg servings. The difference being this is a full portion size and the other in comparison constitutes part of a lunch combo deal.
Thecombination dried noodle (cover image) of wontons, BBQ pork is separated from its broth which you can pour in to turn it into a soup bowl or more of a stiry fry chowmein style.
The encircling outdoor area of the venue outside the Inmark Tower cleverly provides privacy from the George Street hustle and foot traffic while taking in those rays and fresh air. A casual dining spot at the epicentre of the Event Cinema, Paddys Market and Downing Centre triangle – it would be impossible not to come back for sheer convenience despite the many Thai options on this block alone!
