Pregnant lady Ling couldn't wait so had to order some spring rolls to stave off the hunger pangs and rightly so. Her recommendation of them meant we all wanted some so when we did arrive we ordered more. In fact our round table for 5 was groaning with the weight of everything we ordered. The spring rolls were golden, crispy and very tasty.
The fish was a whole fish with spicy lemon sauce and cashews. We liked the lightness of this dish and the sharp citrus flavours which were a contrast to the sweetness of the curries.
If I remember correctly we also ate our way through some mixed veggies, pad thai and roti. We also ordered coconut rice and sticky rice.
Our dishes didn't arrive without confusion...we ordered tom yum soup to share that never materialised but in hindsight we're glad it had been forgotten. The coconut rice arrived cold and when we questioned that, it was as if we had to ask for hot as cold was normal and then the sticky rice took ages to arrive and when it did it came one small bowl at a time.
Nevertheless the tastiness of the dishes meant that these confused elements were overlooked.
The pancakes were little semi spheres that were quite jelly like in consistency and a little bit salty sweet. A little strange to my palette but Noah and Steve happily got through a ridiculous number each. The fried banana was more fried batter over banana and whilst I'm not desperately craving more was pleasant enough. We doubted whether the coconut ice cream was coconut as it was more a plain vanilla flavour.
Food was reasonably priced and certainly there are some dishes worth returning for and the menu is wide enough to return to the favourites and try some more. In fact, Ling and Noah returned with friends the next day for more deep fried pork shank goodness! So I guess I Spicy is a case of I Likey!
