Kinn Thai

Kinn Thai, Upper Mount Gravatt

After so long, I managed to have dinner at Kinn Thai to celebrate Father's Day! We had to celebrate it a week earlier as my in-laws had to fly to the States for their niece's wedding. I am always excited to have Thai food because it is so different from my usual home cooking, which tend to be more mild in flavours.

What did we order? To start with, the chicken satay ($8) and 'Golden Tofu' ($6). The tofu was mediocre, and unlike other fried tofu that I had tried. The batter of the fried tofu is more of a sticky texture rather than crispy, making it less desirable. The chicken satay was okay, with quite a nice peanut sauce.

While the coconut chicken salad($18) was fresh, after a few bites I was not keen to have it further. It is probably because the amount of herbs in the meal was just too overpowering.

But luckily, the following few dishes were more impressive. The tom yum prawn ($13) was sour and spicy which is how I like it. The one serving is enough for the four of us to have a taste.  

What we really like and enjoyed the most were the Chilli Jam Crispy Soft Shell Crabs ($23) and the Gang Phed Ped Yang ($26)! The generous soft shell crabs were crispy and tasted even better with their homemade chilli jam, which were not that spicy at all.

Our Gang Phed Ped Yang was the last to arrive and by that time, we were quite full. However, after tasting the roasted duck with lychee curry, I just had to have more. The curry sauce was so flavourful and intense... and that is why I like Thai curries! It was just a bit unfortunate that the pineapple pieces were not that ripe and quite tough.

Overall, we had a good time in Kinn Thai. There is definitely some good food there and I just need to be wiser in the future as to what we should try and order. The service was friendly and attentive, and the delivery of the food to our table was pretty fast.
