They say that good Thai food in Sydney can be even better than in Thailand because the chefs have access to better quality produce and are free from tradition to create better dishes. When my family was visiting from overseas, then, Thai food was the first place I took them to.
The Chat Thai in Chinatown is always impossible to get into (we checked) so we backtracked a few blocks to Yok Yor. My family from Hawaii believe that the Pad Thai is among the best (and most interesting) they’ve ever had, with more sauce than usual, wet and delicious. I was happy to show off how many Thai restaurants cook whole fish here, which I think is stupendous.
And basically, everything else we ordered was delicious. All of this at inexpensive prices and with attentive service. A high recommendation for casual, great Thai food.
