We were greeted on arrival in the usual Thai manner and shown to a reserved table, drinks order was taken and we were brought out prawn crackers and sweet chilli sauce (forget those deep fried, white greasy prawn crackers – these are the real deal!)
The menu was explained to us as it has changed to accommodate more ‘kids meals’ – now it is not just the explorer tray available for little ones, for those a little hungrier they can opt for a smaller version of one of the main menu meals. As long as there is a little elephant next to the big elephant on the menu this can be ordered for children too.
Amelia and Evie stuck with the explorer tray and both opted for chicken with plain rice and bbq sauce (they loved that the sauce didn’t come already on the chicken as Evie is really picky with things like that and didn’t touch her sauce at all – too spicy apparently!)
The boys both opted for the Half Size Portions of Chicken Curry with Rice. Again this came out without being smothered in sauce which I think is always best for kids then they can decide how much they would like. For example Ethan covered his chicken and Jake used his more as a dipping sauce!
I am going to have to source some of these trays as Amelia loved having her food all separated and enjoyed messing around with plastic cutlery, I love that they a full set including knife as I find it really important that she learns how to use both a knife and fork! She always has at home so why when we eat out should it be different!
I am a little less adventurous than the boys and opted for my go to – King Prawn Pad Thai! Seriously I know that this is my fall back meal but I know each time its going to be amazing and I am a little scared to step out of my comfort zone and try something a little more spicy!
The new childrens menu is available nationwide, including the half price plates at £5.95.
Do you stick to a known favourite or are you a little more adventurous than me?
We were invited for lunch in return for this review. All opinions and views are my own and genuine.
