Prasits, Surry Hills

Prasits 

How was it? 
Food: 7.5/10
Service: 7/10
Ambience: 6/10
Value: $$

Recently I dined at Prasits Thai restaurant with Carrie and Miranda. A friend of mine is a frequent visitor, however he did warn me not to expect anything to wow the palette, just some good simple Thai food in Surry Hills. 

I thought that it was a little bit pricey, considering the fact that they served mostly simple and classic Thai dishes and the decor was very simple - nothing fancy or swanky. The service was good - friendly staff, we initially waited a while for our food, but I'm not sure whether my feelings were based on the fact that we were rather hungry, or whether it was actually slow. 

Satay Chicken $2.00 each

A trip to a Thai restaurant is never complete without satay chicken (in my book). The chicken was very fleshy and I liked how there were chunks of peanuts in the satay sauce. 

Banana Flower Salad $19.90

The banana flower salad was very interesting. There was mint, lemon grass, chilli and garlic topped with chicken poached in coconut milk and peanut, all dressed in kaffir lime. It was very exotic indeed and it was a winning combination of sweet and sour flavours. 

Pad Se-Ew with Prawns $15.90

This dish is fried flat rice noodles with some Chinese broccoli, egg and prawn, topped with a sweet soybean sauce. The winning dish of the night. The noodles were just the right texture and tasted great. 

Yellow Curry 

I forgot to get the price for the yellow curry, but i think it was between $15-$20. It was a flavoursome and mild curry with potatoes and chicken. 


The Pros: 
- Classic and exotic Thai dishes 
- Friendly service 

The Cons: 
- A little bit pricey for simple Thai food

Overall: 
Some simple Thai dishes done well as well as some interesting and exotic items on the menu. A little bit pricey compared to other Thai restaurants, but given the location, it's reasonable.
