On Monday I visited the Thaikhun (pronounced tycoon) restaurant in Guildford. They serve Thai street food similar to that from Khao San road in Bangkok. I am a huge fan of Thai food and I absolutely love Thailand. I spent a month travelling around Thailand so stepping into Thaikhun reminded me of the fun I had on my travels.
The decor features rustic wooden floors and walls similar to the restaurants around Thailand. The interior is very eccentric with lots of Thai bric a brac around the room. I like how busy it looks reflecting the streets of Bangkok.
Taste of Thailand at the Thaikhun Restaurant Guildford
Me and my mum decided to try out the cocktails I went for the full moon which was fruity and sweet. My mum went for the Phi Phi Bellini. They also have the traditional Thai beers Chang and Singha.
We went for the deep fried Vegetable Spring Rolls which came with a chilli sauce. We also had the Chicken Satay which comes with peanut sauce, cucumber relish and toast. Both dishes are tasty I like the chicken satay best as anything that comes with peanut sauce is a winner.
I chose the Massaman curry as that’s one of my favourite Thai dishes. The curry is flavoured with cinnamon, potatoes, onion and cashew nuts. I really enjoyed this dish it’s rich and creamy and I would definitely have it again. My mum had the Geang Phed which is a sweet curry with pineapple and grapes.
I went for the Thai classic Mango Sticky Rice which is light and sweet perfect if you’re already quite full like I was. My mum had the Thai Bounty chocolate fondant with coconut ice cream, which she enjoyed.
I had a great time at Thaikhun the staff are super friendly checking everything is alright with the food and frequently topping up our glasses of water. The food is great I will definitely be back to try out some different cocktails and some of the noodle dishes.
