Manee Siam, Adelaide

150 Goodwood Road
SA 5034

Our friends took the six of us along to Manee Siam which is one of the regular local haunts. We sat out the in the front courtyard.

The menu covered all the Thai classics, along with a few other options, and after a bit of indecision we made our choices of a selection of  dishes to share. We started with veggie spring rolls, which were warm and crisp and were served with individual sweet chilli sauce.

The 'Golden Bags' were more exciting, filled with minced chicken and prawn stir-fried with chopped water chestnut and wrapped with crispy golden pastry.

Then we moved on to the mains, which were also served with a huge tureen of rice. The Pad Thai was traditional with its stir fried rice noodles, chicken, bean shoots and egg served with peanuts, and the flavours seemed pretty authentic.

The Massaman curry chicken had plenty of chunks of poultry, potatoes and roasted peanuts in its mildly spiced creamy coconut milk sauce and was my winner of the night.

The stir fried prawn and vegetables with chilli and fresh Thai basil  was packed with plenty of broccoli and a good number of prawns along with plenty of basil to provide flavour and chilli for some heat.

The dinner came in around $120 as we had BYO'd and given that had filled 6 of us great value. The service was friendly, and pretty attentive given we were away from most of the other diners. I can see why our friends are regulars.
