Koh Thai Tapas Salisbury: A Review

Thursday, 19 July 2018


I'm not going to lie, Thai food gives me life. Really good Thai food is just everything- you can't beat it! It's one of my favourite cuisines and with all the different flavours and textures of the food, it's literally like a party in your mouth.

In Salisbury, we are spoilt for choice in terms of Thai restuarants: The Giggling Squid, Thai Orchid, The R'ai Dor and Koh Thai Tapas. All four are superb restaurants, but there's a je ne sais quoi about Koh Thai Tapas always draws me in- as you can try a little bit of everything!

I visited recently with my friend Miranda for a catch up over Thai food and cocktails. I'd like to point out, we ordered SO much food that we actually had to move to a bigger table. Fatty for life (no shame!).

As we tested so many different tapas, I thought I'd review and share my thoughts on the dishes we tried.

We started with a couple of cocktails (as pictured above) the King Mai and the Blushing Lotus. The King Mai is pineapple based and so tangy and revitalising which was a contrast to some of the flavours we had within our tapas. The Blushing Lotus however, was very very sweet and kind of cherry bakewell-esque due to the Almond syrup in it.

 

Thai Sliced Crispy Beef- I don't know how they do it, but this crispy chilli beef gives me LIFE. Crispy chilli beef is a staple in my diet and this is the best crispy chilli beef... ever!

Dim Sum- I'm forever on a diet and steamed foods are a go to for me. These prawn and pork dim sum are delightful bites of heaven and I'd definitely recommend!

 

Koh's Cucumber and Duck Roll- this is a new one for me as I try to stay away from duck because it can be quite fatty but my god was this good. Combined with the sweet hoisin sauce, this is a winner in my books!

Sweetcorn Cakes- another new one for me. I've never had sweetcorn cakes and these were really good! A different texture to the other foods which made a refreshing change.

 

Pad Pak- With a fairly carb heavy meal, Miranda and I decided we needed some veg in our lives. The Pad Pak was a perfect accompaniment- a mixture of asian vegetables in a light soy based sauce. 

Plain Rice Noodles- although our meal was already quite carby- we opted for the plain rice noodles which just added a little extra to the meal. They were seasoned beautifully and are definitely a must have if you haven't gone down the usual curry route.

Koh Thai Tapas is a chain of restaurants, which are mainly based in the South West of England. They have a varied menu and their prices are reasonable. Take a look at their menu here. They also have a lunch deal (two courses for £12) and an early dinner deal (two courses for £14).

What's your favourite cuisine? Have you ever eaten at a Koh Thai Tapas? I'd love to know what you think!
