Even after many many years in business, Thai Pothong is still as popular as when I first knew about it. The crowds seem to fill this place on many hours of the day, especially during the evenings over the weekends. I returned for another visit to his place a few weeks ago and experienced just that. This large restaurant however has plenty of tables and seats and just enough space to make the patrons comfortable. The food range on this restaurant of standard Thai restaurantread more
I love the interior of the restaurant. It's a well decorated space which has a great lively atmosphere in the dinner period. It accommodates big groups well which my friend held a birthday dinner of about 20. They have the usual Thai dishes but a larger entree menu which are displayed so nicely on their plates. We also ordered pad Thai which we thought tasted the same to other cheaper places but it's the finer dining experience that sets it apart from other Thai restaurants!
Thai Ninja!!! The food here was decent but kinda pricey, compared to their little takeaway store near the station haha The food was quick and the service was great but taste wise... i had better. Decent for westerners but for a Thai food lover this is a bit different on a different level. Until next time ... Keep eating!!!!
I remember so clearly going to this place when it was new on the scene in 1989, for my father's 50th birthday! Sadly, he's long gone, but this place is still turning out excellent Thai meals. All your favourites and so much more. Lovely space and always fun to get a bit of that student vibe of Newtown, but there's thankfully no grunge element here!
