Head to the cluster of Thai restaurants in Melbourne’s CBD
While the city’s nearby Chinatown is huge, the Thai restaurants in Melbourne’s CBD have made a distinctive mark in the city as well. Little Collins, Little Bourke and Swanston Streets are all areas that are home to some of Melbourne’s very best Thai eateries. Honestly, they’re irresistible. One in particular is one of the Melbourne CBD’s best Thai restaurants – Cookie on Swanston Street. Known just as much for its cocktails as for its cuisine, Cookie is without a doubt a must-try restaurant when in the city centre. Eat your way through the menu and sample dishes like curried soft shell crab served with corn and sweet peppers, or opt for the equally delicious bok choy topped with pumpkin, ginger and coriander, which paired alongside the famous Cookie cocktail, the Phoenix (made with Chivas, Bowmore, Aperol, yellow Chartreuse, fresh lemon juice and bitters) makes for a truly unforgettable Thai experience.
