Having started business in a village in Thailand over fifty years ago, the folks behind Reantong Thai have been cooking their amazing cuisine for a long time. Now, in the heart of Pyrmont, the descendents of that same family are continuing the legacy by serving up some of Sydney’s most flavourful Southeast Asian dishes. Guests travel from all over the city to visit this hotspot on Harris Street, so make sure to reserve ahead to snag a table!
The food was yummy, but maybe a bit lacklustre. The restaurant is nice and cozy on a cold evening. It was very easy to find parking which is a big bonus.
Reantong Thai on Sydney’s Harris Street is one of those rare restaurants that really lives up to the hype surrounding it. From healthy salads to stir-fried classics, the restaurant offers something for just about every type of diner. Reantong means (according to the restaurant’s website) the gold medal of triumph and achievement in Thai, and that’s just what this Pyrmont restaurant is – a shining star in the city’s competitive Asian dining scene.
If you’re looking to cool off, one of Reantong Thai’s icy blended juices – in watermelon, lime, lychee, orange and strawberry blends – or a tasty cha nohm yen, a Thai iced tea, can help. The roast duck salad with tomatoes, chilli jam and Thai herbs provides a bold way to begin your meal, before going for entrees like crispy calamari and satay chicken, or just diving right into mains such as goong choo chee, a medium-hot king prawn curry, the huglei curry, a northern-style red curry made with peanuts and ginger, or perhaps the eggplant mhu grob served with your choice of chicken, beef, crispy pork belly, roasted duck, prawns, calamari, seafood or even lamb. Round it all off with a delicious dessert – the black sticky rice served with egg custard provides a decadent end to a superlative Thai dinner at this restaurant in Sydney’s Pyrmont.
