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.
Good food and service. Although our order was heard incorrectly - got tofu pad Thai instead of pork pad Thai but we didn’t fuss as we could tell it was a small family run business and just ate it.
