Though prices at the Sumalee Thai restaurant can seem high the serves are inflated too, as the plates are meant for sharing. Duck spring rolls give an old favourite some new depth of flavour; Thai pork ribs in sweet curry and basil come on a banana leaf and have a wonderfully moreish curry sauce bursting with fresh herbs. A stir-fry of fresh king prawns with garlic, pepper and three green vegetables seems deceptively simple, but the garlicky sauce is tasty yet light and is a nice counterpoint to the rich ribs. This feast is all served in a beer garden full of dark wood bench seating and potted palms.

  • One look at the menu was all I needed to see to make my mind up about this place. I find many cafe's and the such try to hard with their meals and fail miserably. I didn't see one item on the menu that I would actually order. Personally give me an old fashioned Steak Diane with mixed vegies and wedges and I'm in heaven. Fusions and exotics to appeal to me; as I find these blends confuse the palette and really; don't taste that great either. The pricing is average for pub food. But in saying this; the meals are far from pub style grub. I didn't know whether I was in Poland or Israel when my eyes layed upon the menu. My rating out of 10, 2.
