I recently visited Khao San Road on Adelaide with a few of my work colleagues. Perfect timing as I had been eagerly waiting to find a window of opportunity to indulge. This brand new eatery had received rave reviews across the board and was being dubbed the best Thai restaurant downtown. Not shocking as the concept was brought to the city by our friends at Sukothai in the East End.
The restaurant is incredibly popular so if you are inkling at going to lunch during the work week make sure to make a reservation or you’ll be standing in a line that smells of desperation. The service was prompt even though it was clear the staff were slammed. Everything tasted amazing. Must return for dinner I hear they have pumpkin fritters!
