Red Spoon Thai Restaurant, Gladesville (11 Jan 2009)

198 Victoria Road, Gladesville NSW 2111
Phone: 02 9817 7188

A popular restaurant with stylish decor and well-presented food which was fresh and tasty served by attentive and friendly staff. I'd be keen to try a few other things on the menu I spotted like the Salt and Pepper Squid, Beef Salad, Duck Salad and Grilled Lamb Cutlets next time. I prefer the Massamun Beef from Spice I Am though which is more tender from memory.

Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Papaya Salad $10.90

Chicken Pandan (4 pieces): Pieces of chicken marinated with Red Spoon's special recipe, wrapped in fragrant pandan leaves, deep fried, served with home made tamarind dipping sauce $6.90

Fish Cake (4 pieces) $6.90

Tom-Yum Prawns $8.90

Red Spoon Braised Pork Belly: Braised pork belly with sweet soy, cinnamon and star anise served with mixed Asian green vegetables $15.90 (Signature dish)

Gang Phed Ped Yang: A rich red curry made from a slightly sweet paste of galangal, kaffir limes, lemongrass, garlic and roasted red chilli. The paste is slowly pan fried with coconut milk, roasted duck and vegetables $24.90 (Signature dish)

Chicken Pad Thai $14.90

Tropical Fried Rice: Special Thai fried rice with mixed seafood, egg, tumeric, mixed vegetables and pieces of pineapple $18.90

Massamun Beef $15.90

Hey Simon, have you tried Chat Thai in Campbell St Haymarket in Sydney? Directly opposite the entrance to the Capitol Theatre. Blink and you'd miss it, but there is always a queue, the decore is lovely and the food is delicious. Try their Lychee slushy. And the coconut milk with jellied fruits desert. The rest of the main-fare on the menu is full of gorgeous flavours - just look around you at the mouthwatering dishes that will be arriving at your fellow-diner's tables.

Hi Kyle, I've heard good things about Chat Thai Haymarket but haven't managed to get to it yet. I have tried their Coogee branch though and liked it.

Hi Anonymous Trev, No time like the present as they say and if you don't you'll just fall behind in posting. Thanks for the recommendation. Good to see you all again for a fun night.

that braised pork belly looks fantastic - I hope it tasted as good as it looks!

Hi Renee, it was very nice and tender but it can be quite fattening if you start eating too much of fatty skin as well :-)
