Toorak Road could do with a bit of a shakeup when it comes to good quality restaurants in the South Yarra, Toorak and Prahran triangle southeast of Melbourne’s city centre. Doing the job gently and with never less than a smile on its face is Blossom Thai, an elegant but affordable restaurant specialising in that most beloved of Southeast Asian cuisines, Thai. We love how the proprietors are honest when they say this is food prepared for Thai people, but that each dish can be tempered for the non-Thai (read, European) palate – but some like it hot don’t they, and for that we recommend the classic tom yum soup followed by the so-called ‘devil curry salmon’. Right by Toorak Road/Chapel Street tram stop and just down the road from South Yarra station, reserve this restaurant in advance.
Beautiful and friendly staff place but wasn't quite sure about my calamari salad, the beef salad was much better. Great location across from the Como cinema.
