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.
The food here is fantastic. Very tasty and great fresh ingredients. Great flavours. Reasonably priced. The staff are lovely and very attentive. We’ll definitely be back! :-)
Fantastic atmosphere, scrumptiously delicious dinner. A modern twist on authentic Thai dishes. Especially liked the pork belly salad and the crab burger. Their crepe dessert is to die for! Would highly recommend.
Fresh simple good food, options for vegans as well. Nice selection of curries, loved the 5 spice pork belly, and the masaman curry, also good roti and peanut dipping sauce, and loved the coconut pandan crepe cake YUM! The Nutella one was good too!
