This restaurant started out its service on 18 July 2014. Being recently constructed, it was built with an intention of, “Let’s give the people a true Thai experience!” by the owner ‘Warren Vaz’. Such a passion that has led him to come up with this restaurant was actually inspired by his wife, ‘Dew Sivapon Vaz’, the backbone to this restaurant. The first thing that this restaurants shouts for, is the very fact that food that reaches your table is food cooked from scratch, with the actual Thai ingredients and of course, right from the heart. Because, it believes, that when you have the actual true dish of Thai, that’s what makes your day special. Yet again, as Warren Vaz says, “Everyday is a special day because of Thai”. As much as the ambience is good enough in itself, it is the service that also adds to it. Their service is ‘Bang on!’ What is even more interesting about this restaurant is that the herbs it uses, is obtained from the owner’s very own herb garden grown at his backyard. One of the main herbs includes parsley, which as emphasized by the owner, is no ordinary parsley. It’s the ‘Thai’ parsley. Still some more herbs grown include chilies and ginger. Dew Sivapon Vaz, brings into life her Thailand experiences to Goa. She is the true chef and the inspiration of this restaurant. It’s more like you eat from her hand!
One of the main dishes most people would look for in a Thai restaurant is the ‘Tom Yum’. Well, this restaurant will not leave you disappointed; in fact, it will leave you begging for more. This ‘Tom Yum’ soup is appealing to the taste buds. The moment you get a spoon of it into your mouth, you will realize you actually taste the whole of Thailand in just that one spoonful. It is soupilicious. If you just take a peek into their menu, you will discover that they actually brief you on what really makes a Thai Meal. Another interesting fact about the Thai way of eating is that the traditional Thailand people normally eat bit by bit which absolutely contradicts the Indian style of eating that is, they eat heavy portions at every meal, which would mean lunch and dinner. Further into their dishes, they have what is called the ‘dip’, wherein, you have probably a meat portion served but along with that you get a type of curry, which is the thing they refer to as ‘dip’. The ‘dip’ which is really a sauté of chilies, garlic, and dried shrimps and fish sauce along with lime juice is what the Thai’s believe to be the actual taste to the whole dish. Another yet fascinating thing about their dish is the way some of them are served with a burner that looks more like a plate. This is meant to keep the dish warm, and can normally do so for about 15 minutes. Very Thai indeed! One of their dishes which really keep you stunned is their omelet styled dish. This dish is basically made up of sautéed chicken or pork, with onions and few other herbs, and stuffed into the omelet. It is one dish you will find yourself keen on trying. Oh, there is so much more this restaurant can give you. Their Satay is no ordinary Satay. It is a Satay made of a different kind of peanut and it is a must try! ‘Som Tum Thai’, their green Papaya dish is yet another unique Thai dish that will definitely satisfy your taste buds. Keep your taste buds alive by trying their ‘Gang Khawwan’, also known as ‘Green curry’. A dish meant for the vegetarians. If you prefer a Thailand dish very Indian styled, go for their ‘Gang Masamun Kai’. You will love it, undoubtedly! Dish after dish, one surprise after another. ‘Pad Pak Beung Fai Dang’ made from a vegetable, which in English is called, ‘Morning Glory’ treats your taste buds to real Thai veg meal. So if you arre a pure veggie, here is a recommended dish.
