Top Class Thai
Nestled above beautiful Manly Beach, Seaside Thai Gourmet offers traditional dishes with some unique Thai-Aussie fusion creations that will keep you returning again and again.
This beachfront venue is as far from the traditional Thai restaurant as you can get while still ensuring the much-loved favourite dishes are available.
Owner Sam and chef Nat, from the popular Manly Thai Gourmet, opened Seaside Thai Gourmet last year with the idea of offering a very different dining experience.
Delicious food is a given but the new first floor, restaurant menu takes dining to another level and the stylish space and fantastic location, ensures this is the case.
The entreé selection includes satay chicken and vegetable spring rolls but there are a number of more unusual dishes to tempt, like Seaside Crab Won Ton, where cream cheese is paired with crabmeat – delicious; and a refreshing ‘Red Bull’ Salad featuring chilled watermelon balls with homemade dried salmon and finger lime caviar - fantastic. There are also pork and beef Thai-style tacos.
While mains offer firm favourites like Green Curry Chicken and Pad Thai, Seaside Thai Gourmet has its own unique dishes, such as Twice Cooked Pork Hock – Thai Style, cubes of caramelised pork in a tamarind and cranberry based sauce that simply fall apart in your mouth. Lemongrass Prawns and Rosella Duck, are sure to tantalise whether you like fresh citrusy flavours or a rich, yet light, lychee tang.
The perfect spot for summer dining with unrivalled ocean views, Seaside Thai Gourmet has a selection of beers, wines and cocktails to complement your meal. The prompt and friendly service make it the ideal venue for couples, groups and families and the location is a major draw, especially the outdoor deck on a fine summer evening.
Seaside Thai is a full dining experience offering much more than most Thai menus while still being great value for money with many entreés around $10 and single serves from just $2-3 each for vegetarian spring rolls and satay chicken. Tacos are $5 a piece and mains come in around the $20 mark.
There is no better place if you are thinking of festive parties, weddings or birthday gatherings. The views from the all-weather balcony and creative food selections will appeal to all tastes
