If you are strolling around EmQuartier looking for Thai food, head to Nara for Thai dishes in a laid-back ambience.
Rating : 16/20
Start with hors d’oeuvre Nara, an assortment of Thai appetisers such as fish cakes, pork satay, chicken satay, spring rolls and pomelo salad. Stir-fried crab with yellow curry (poo pad pong karee) is a tasty main course dish but be prepared to crack the crab yourself with a claw cracker. Try the traditional chicken in coconut soup (tom kha gai). Infused with lemongrass, chilli and ginger, the soup contains just the right amount of authentic Thai fragrances and flavour. For an even more local experience, opt for hot shrimp paste dip (nam prik pla too) accompanied by fresh vegetables, cut up pieces of omelette with acacia leaves and mackerel. Conclude your meal with the restaurant’s most popular dessert, Nara’s coconut ice cream, which comes with an assortment of Thai condiments.
