Fantastic food, great service and at a reasonable price!! BYO as well. WE started with roti and satay and salt and pepper squid which was delicious then I had the massaman curry which was rich and delicious the meat was so tender my husband had a basil thai fried rice which he said was really yummy as well :)
Delicious food and lovely service, in a spot that is out of the way but worth the trip. Monday nights are possibly not busy but later in the week better to make a reservation.
Going for a Thai hug could be construed in plenty of ways, but at Hug Chiangmai, you’re sure of a warm, welcoming embrace. Warm may not be the word to describe some of the Thai specialities that they serve: Southeast Asian food is notorious for packing in more burns than an evil millionaire and a Scottish poet at a fire-eating contest. Head over for a fiery feed in Geelong’s Newcomb district and you’ll not be disappointed, although not all their dishes are hotter than the sun.
Thai cuisine is based on four key elements – spicy, sweet, salty and sour – and balancing them out is the key to a great Thai kitchen. At Hug Chiangmai on Watsons Road in Newcomb, they balance flavours like a tightrope walker carrying bags of crisps, so you know that when you order from their extensive menu, you’re going to get something good. Asian soups, jungle curries and a superb range of seafood are the specialities here, and the good people of Geelong know it: you’ll need to book a table to secure your seat.
