Princess Thai – Clayfield

Princess Thai Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

As soon as you walk into Princess Thai – it feels like you are on holiday in Thailand. Greeted by a delightful wai and sawasdee from the waitresses.

The decor is lavish, intricate, and typically Thai, and the atmosphere is warm and comfortable with families and friends gathering in this neighbourhood gem.

The menu is extensive and contains authentic Thai dishes – a nice welcome change – so many restaurants try to be pan-Asian and I always think it is better to specialize in one cuisine rather than trying to be Chinese, Thai, Japanese and Malaysian all at once.

We didn’t want to overeat, so we shared a satay starter. the chicken was succulent and flavoursome and the peanut sauce was a perfect accompaniment.

For mains we chose fish in tamarind sauce which was really nicely cooked, lovely fresh fish in a sauce that wasn’t too sour or too sweet, with lots of nice colourful vegetables on the plate.

We also chose a chicken panang curry – authentic, spicy but not too hot, and bursting with all of the typical Thai flavours that we love.

We also chose steamed rice and a glass noodle salad with minced pork and prawns. Again, the salad was a very authentic and tasty dish with all the elements of sweet, sour, and hot and a nice textural crunch of peanuts.

We were perfectly full at the end of the meal, and really pleased to have dined here. We will definitely be back.

Sakana, Clayfield

Sakana Japanese Dining Bar Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Sakana is in a group of shops just on Sandgate Road, it is quite a large cafe with a casual atmosphere.

The menu is quite extensive, featuring hot and cold appetisers, sushi, sashimi, bento boxes, curry, rice and noodle bowls, and tempura.

We chose edamame to nibble on while waiting for our mains. This was plentiful and fresh.

We shared some prawn gyoza – they were steamed and tasty and had a dipping sauce.

I chose my favourite Agedashi Tofu. This is a dish which is impossible to eat with chopsticks so I was glad to have a spoon. The tofu was nicely coated in potato starch and had been very lightly fried. The broth was tasty with a lovely savoury umami flavour – definitely one of the nicest I have had.

We shared some sashimi of omelette, scallop, tuna, salmon and white fish. It was good quality and very fresh and came with pickled ginger and lovely hot wasabi.

My companion chose a sushi roll containing spicy tuna and tempura prawn. This was plentiful and it had lots of nice contrasting textures and flavours.

We were very full at the end of the meal and enjoyed everything that we had. The cafe is also licensed and sells Japanese beers, sake and sake jelly drinks.

We will definitely return – it’s local and extremely good.
