I love Thai @Long Kin

Long Kin is a Thai restaurant in Pymont run by husband and wife team, with Sutee running front of house and his wife Suweena running the kitchen.

The restaurant has a clean modern fit out scattered with some quirkyness. There are monkey figurines displyed on shelves with monkeys and bananas decorating the walls, along with some fun facts about bananas. So it goes Mr loves bananas and she loves monkeys.

The Long Kin menu is extensive, with some beautiful traditional Thai cusine and some dishes with a fun twist. A great place to visit as a group, as we did on this occasion.

Long Kin is a licensed venue and had a magnitude of choice including cocktails, mocktails, frappes, fresh juice and coffee options. With a range of nice mojito’s.

The crisp soft shell crab burger with a thai slaw and mayo is a great option if you are after a quick bite to eat. This was off the specials menu.

For starters: the curry puffs are always a go to and these did not disappoint. For something different, try the ma hor citrus; a full flavoured bite with pork floss, caramel coconut, peanuts and tamarind sauce atop of a slice of orange.

It was a cold night so we opted for some soup. The usual go to is the tom yum, but on this instance we went with the tom kha kai and are now converted and will return for more. This was chicken in a coconut curry sauce.

Another winter warmer was the massman osso bucco: a hearty curry with great flavour and meat so tender it pulled apart with the spoon. Have this with a side of rice to savour the sauce.

A standout for all was the roast duck noodles. A beautifull cooked piece of duck Maryland, had our mouths watering. Served atop of a flavoursome broth.

For a dish with a twist we shared the fettuccini crying tiger beef with spinach. Tender sliced beef with a good chilli kick from the spicy sauce.

Thanks to Long Kin for the flavoursome food and welcoming hospitality that thai’s are known for. Thank you Ompty for inviting us, we will be sure to return.
