Palm Sugar - Royal Thai Cuisine
282 Bridge Rd
Richmond VIC 3121
Unlike my usually verbose reviews, I will keep this brief like my dining experience here. Sometimes a meal is a more a transaction to provide sustenance to keep you going. In this case it was a whirlwind dinner prior to a 40th around the corner
Dining room - Nice but could be cosy if full and possibly noisy. We were upstairs and it was quite open. If booking probably the place to be unless there is a noisy function.
PRAWN SPRING ROLLS
Entree - Prawn Spring Rolls, crispy with nice filling, could have more prawn. Good sauce, nice presentation
GAENG PED LENJEE
Roasted duck fillet in a spicy red curry with lychees
Red duck curry - Nice, spicy but lychees provide a good counter. Duck meat is good, but at $22 would have expected more duck.
PRAWN & CHICKEN STIR FRY WITH VEGETABLES IN OYSTER SAUCE
Wow - in a sign of pure haste not only did I not take a photo outside, I neglected the formal Thai name of this dish. Prawn & chicken stir fry, doesn't sound too promising but had a great smoky flavour and was quite generous. Perhaps the duck was light on as it was nearing end of service when we dined. Recommended
So, start to finish we were done in about 45 minutes. Service was good, pricing reasonable and along the competitive strip of Bridge rd is more than holding it's own,
