Thai Me Up

The first thing I noticed when I arrived were the condiments – no asking for more sweet chilli sauce at Pepper Tree – you have four different sauces to choose from and they will not run out! Small but important difference I noticed here and I was overjoyed when I could plonk as much sauce on my prawn crackers as I wanted to.

The menu has a fantastic selection and I struggled with ordering! For the small plates we chose the Pork & minced prawn dim sum which were really tasty served in a basket and the Classic spring roll crispy and stuffed with black fungus, cabbage, carrot and vermicell, which went well with the sweet chilli sauce.

I would usually opt for a curry but I really fancied a stir fry for a change! I had the Thai chilli chicken with Thai sweet chilli sauce (as if I hadn’t had enough with my prawn crackers!), long beans, fresh chillies, sweet basil, cashew nuts and mixed peppers with stir fried noodles cooked with soya  sauce, bean shoots and sesame. It was a good level of spice and a generous portion – some of the chicken pieces were a little tougher than others but overall it was tasty. We also had the Pad Thai Jay Rice noodles stir-fried with asparagus, pak choi, courgette, French beans, egg, sweet radish, beansprouts, tamarind sauce, crushed peanuts, spring onion and mixed pepper – again such a decent portion and flavoursome!

Thai cocktails on happy hour

Mango Bellini: Pure mango puree topped off with prosecco – both pretty sweet but I do always opt for a sweet cocktails!
