Thailand, the Land of Smiles, has a famous relationship with its king. They love him to bits and you’ll find his image in most homes, as well as on billboards and lampposts in the street. You’ll find His Highness at this Thai restaurant in Sydney’s Five Dock, too, beaming down upon the horde of happy diners tucking into fantastic, home-style Southeast Asian cuisine. Kings Corner Thai is appropriately named on a few levels. The name pays homage to the Thai king, the restaurant is located on the corner of Kings Road and the Great North Road, but most importantly the food is fit for royalty. Lunch specials attract a lot of locals, while the chef’s special dishes – keow tod wontons, the gorgeous deep-fried crab claw with plum sauce, barbecued beef ‘crying tiger’, and the popular Kings Corner signature fried rice – are all highly recommended if you reserve a sought after table for dinner.
