For authentic Thai cuisine in South Yarra, locals head straight for Somsak Thai Restaurant. Found on Toorak Road, this sophisticated dining establishment draws in a mixed clientele of foodies, spice lovers and locals looking for an escape from the usual Southeast Asian dining experience. The food at Somsak is some of the city’s best, and includes gourmet ingredients that take the cuisine to the next level. Start off your meal with an entree like the Somsak Thai special oysters – cooked in a terracotta pot with a zesty sauce made from galangal, garlic, fish sauce, coriander root, palm sugar and lemon juice, these molluscs are a superb option for seafood fans. For your main, we recommend the Thai Jungle Curry, a medley of fresh vegetables, Thai basil and a very spicy sauce cooked with your choice of chicken, beef, pork, prawns, seafood or tofu. There’s plenty more where that came from, so book in advance to experience Somsak Thai Restaurant’s best flavours.
Attentive service with really beautiful food. The mixed entree was enjoyable as was the prawn stirfry and Massaman curry. My third visit and most definitely not my last.
We love this place. Casual relaxed dining and great food at reasonable prices. The staff are welcoming and the service is great. We'll be back!
Such an adorable place, very authentic and clean. The staff were all so friendly and very happy to help. The food was amazing- maybe even the best Thai I've had. Highly recommend.
Excellent food served in no time at all. Great service. I would score a 10/10 for sure. Will definitely recommend and return in the future.
Always great food and service. I have introduced quite a few people to this place and it has become a favourite place to eat when I am in Melbourne
Expensive, but the food was delicious. Service was prompt and attentive. Nice interior too. Booth my favourites tom yum goong and green curry were excellent.
