When a suburb community seems to be just about the only eatery on a strip of shops in the bayside, it has to be doing something right. Or they are slipping crack into the dishes. Absent are the glazed eyes and diners aren’t bouncing off walls, which probably means this restaurant is serving a menu of stock Thai food with a few specials. And yes, it is nice, after comparing customary tangy sweet tamarind juiced pad thai, lime citrussy larb gai and red curry beef to others. King prawns are cooked in a sweeter Thai red curry, but a coconut-creamless Jungle curry with chicken holds nothing back as each mouthful of the sauce coats the mouth and tongue with mini daggers, making good on their description of “hot”. Just as Thai Saffron makes good on Brighton’s sentiment.
