Before Kwan’s Table opened on Inkerman Street, the people of St Kilda may have gone their entire life wondering whether it was ever possible to combine the colours, flavours and zing of Thai food with the high-wire skill of French patissiers and the comfort of a Melbourne-level cafe, to create something greater than the sum of its strong parts. Now they know. Kwan’s Table is impossible to describe in a few lines, so please just try it out. Meals are exquisite – well presented and bursting with flavour, the coming together of Thai tastes and cafe comfort, perhaps best illustrated by their popular soft shell crab brioche burger. It’s not all savoury though, as the refined, French-style pastries and desserts jazzed up by Thai ingredients like lychee, pandan and coconut are really special. Then of course there is the coffee, and the atmosphere, and – just go there and see for yourself.
Great food and great value. Menu offered a range to meet all our tastes with good specials on offer too. Most enjoyable evening with friends. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others.
Great service, great food, great place. Cozy seating, open view of kitchen and chefs at work. Highly recommended for a casual but well prepared dinner
