Paddington locals were wrapped when Khot Thai appeared on Given Terrace in early 2016. Combining casual dining atmosphere with flavoursome Thai cuisine, Khot Thai aims to set itself apart by blending tastes from all regions of Thailand. Regional dishes and specialties feature on the menu, in addition to classics that can’t be beaten. The expansive menu is mind-boggling in its scope as entrees, grilled dishes, soups, curries, stir-fried dishes, noodles and rice and bread dishes each boasting a large choice range. Chef’s specials include Khao Man Gai (crumbed chicken with garlic and ginger rice), soft shell crab with dried chillies and tamarind sauce and tropical curry with lamb tenderloin or duck breast. The menu features plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes, as well as banquet courses, desserts and meals for the kids. BYO wine, beer and pre-mix alcohol drinks are also welcome.
