Location: Northbridge, William Street
With Father’s Day approaching, Dad was pretty keen to go out somewhere and fancied a visit to S & T Thai Gourmet. We’ve visited on two prior occasions and really enjoyed the flavours of their dishes. Walking in, we were warmly greeted and taken to our table. A number of tables were already reserved, and in the name of maximising turnover, they emphasis you come no later than 10 minutes after your booking otherwise you forfeit your table. The restaurant itself is not large but is long and deceptive as there are a number of tables packed in.
One of the features of the restaurant is they are quick out of the kitchen. After perusing the menu and trying to determine what we should order, we settled on the following dishes:
- Crispy oyster pancake (entree)
- Thai style crispy sausage (entree)
- Pad Thai
- A chilli chicken curry
- Green curry (for takeaway)
- Steamed rice
An unusual aspect of the restaurant is that no matter what the dish is classed, such as an entree, all the dishes get brought out and in no particular order. At least there is no delay in between dishes and the chefs waste no time in cooking up a storm. You don’t need to wait all that long before the dishes start being brought to your table which is great when you’re hungry.
The crispy oyster pancake is a past favourite and was delicious as usual. Crispy batter surrounding oysters and this glutinous type ingredient in amongst sliced spring onions served atop been sprouts. This sweet chilli sauce that is also served with the dish is absolutely necessary and rounds the dish off perfectly. The crispy sausage was very flavoursome and reminds me of a similar dish, lo bak. The pad thai was not too sweet and had great flavours. I haven’t eaten too many versions of this dish beforehand so I’m not sure how this ranks against a traditional pad thai but I really enjoyed the flavours on offer. The chilli chicken curry with green beans and red capsicum was delicious. It isn’t hot although the outside of my nose was filled with some perspiration, the flavours along with the steamed rice are amazing! The dish is spicy but not chilli hot and won’t leave your tongue burning We also ordered some green curry to take home and enjoy later and Dad also tried their only dessert on offer which was tasty and refreshing – a milky jelly and fruit salad like dessert. I had a taste and enjoyed it. By the way, the “S” and “T” in the restaurant name are the initials of the restaurant owners. I had to ask.
S & T Food Review Summary
Verdict: I absolutely love the food served here. It’s so full of flavour and is so delicious. Value wise, it’s excellent and to be seated in pleasant surrounds with friendly service and have the meals brought quickly out to you allows you to enjoy the lunch experience. What I love is each time I come here and try a new dish, it’s delicious. Some places have a set of core dishes that are excellent and others are not so. Not here. So satisfied. Bookings essential.
Recommendation: Highly Recommend
