Bangkok Brothers have two outlets – one in Northbridge and another in the Whitford City dining hall at the shopping centre; and it was to the latter we went along recently. As on a previous visit the set up impressed with plenty of greenery, comfortable furniture and attentive waiters.
The food also hits the mark, with the same menu as in Northbridge – authentic Thai flavours, well presented dishes, along with some innovative takes on traditional cuisine – although the chilli levels have been ameliorated from what you could expect in Thailand, adjusting for Westernised palates I guess – but the amalgam of flavours is fine.
Kicking off with prawn cakes – these were nicely crisped and filled with a mix of minced prawn and pork, along with the requisite Thai herbs and spices – pleasant and satisfying dish.
A plate of satay chicken skewers also hit the mark – tender and juicy chook, peanut sauce, chopped cucumber.
Then a couple of mains – a dish of juicy, succulent chicken breast cooked in a sauce of chilli jam, roasted cashews, along with vegetables and topped with a sprinkle more of roasted chilli. Enjoyed this.
And a Thai classic, Massaman beef was possibly the highlight – succulent beef, slow cooked for six hours, in coconut and massaman curry sauce – as with each dish a generous serve and the meltingly tender meat soaking up the aromatic flavours of the spices.
Licenced, they have a sound if not that innovative wine list, and beer both on tap and bottled – a bottle of James Boag and a Mojito both hit the spot…and that was it for this outing.
Both of the Bangkok Brother outlets are proving popular, and this northern location is very busy– and so it should be – the food is good, the set-up attractive, the waiters professional and friendly – and the prices represent good value dining. Well worth a visit.
