Is this the Valley’s best Thai?
04 Apr 2016
Pad Thai, pad see ew, massaman curry – we’ve all got a favourite Thai dish we turn to when those we get a craving for fresh, flavoursome Asian fare, usually on a Friday night when we can’t be bothered to cook. But if you’ve never been adventurous enough to stray from those familiar dishes, it’s about time you headed to Aroy Thai and mixed things up, with their whole menu of traditional Thai dishes to explore. Tucked away on a non-descript corner of the Wickham Terrace, Aroy Thai is one of the Valley’s best kept secrets, whether you’re planning a group dinner before hitting the bars or just ducking out for a casual midweek feed – dine in or takeaway. You could stick to your favourite Thai-riffic feed, and order tender chicken skewers and BBQ pork buns to start, followed by a spicy green curry or chilli and basil stir fry packed with fresh vegetables. Or, you could treat your tastebuds to something new, and get totally tongue Thai-d over wok-tossed pad prik king, steaming bowls of tom yum or a fresh plate of larb beef salad. If you want to get really adventurous, just make a date with their whole deep fried fish, sizzling with flavour and best paired with a side of pineapple fried rice. Match it with a bottle of wine from the extensive wine list and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable feed. The chef and owner behind all this en-Thai-cing fare used to run the kitchen at the popular Thai Seasons in Mooloolaba, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands when it comes to those epic Asian flavours. But don’t just take our word for it, try it out for yourself! You’ll find Aroy Thai at 14/115 Wickham Street in Fortitude Valley, open 7 days a week for dinner and lunch Monday to Friday.
