SquareMeal Review of Addie's Thai Café

The decor may have been spruced up, but Addie’s Thai Café is still offering customers ‘really delicious, authentic food’ at down-home prices. No wonder it’s so popular. While the man himself may be spending a little less time behind the stove these days, his family have taken to the concept with relish. The whole place is now themed as a street-food eatery, although the menu hasn’t changed much – crowds continue to pack in for cracking renditions of hot and sour tom yang kun soup, massaman and green curries or pad thai, as well as Addie’s own wacky inventions such as a dish of prawns and squid infused with galangal, lime leaves, chilli and a slosh of French brandy. There’s local delivery, too – a bonus for anyone living within a one-mile radius.

This place is great. It's a local Thai restaurant that is surprisingly ‘cool’ inside (think black painted tables, dark red walls etc). What I was even more suprised by was how great the food is with a good and varied menu of favourite dishes and plenty of authentic dishes to try. Every time I go there I have good and very gracious service, really delicious, authentic Thai food and a very reasonable bill at the end of it. It's very cheap for what you get. Brilliant hidden gem.

Unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant with really authentic Thai food. The som tam with grilled pork neck is the stuff of legend (order some sticky rice to go with) and there are some really nice stir-fries and curries to go alongside. There's always a generous scattering of Thais in the room, which is reassuring, and I like that they serve Chang beer as well as the more ubiquitous Singha. Book ahead – it gets busy!
