Eating out at the Thai Golden Horse
The Thai Golden Horse has continued to carry the mantle when it comes to good quality Thai food in Newbury from its predecessor on Northbrook Street, the Art of Siam.
Walking in to the venue on a wet Saturday afternoon, we were a little surprised to find we were the only customers in there. And bar a quick pick up from a Deliveroo driver, that remained the case for the 90 minutes we sat and munched away through the fantastic food.
There are a wide selection of options to pick from at the Thai Golden Horse and I opted for the chicken satay for starters, while a veg tempura starter kicked things off on the other side of the table. It featured carrot, mushroom, broccoli and sweetcorn fritter as well as spring rolls with dipping sauce for good measure.
For mains we went for a Phad Mee. That's stir-fried Thai egg noodle, bean sprout with spring onion and king prawns. It ticked all the boxes and the big portion with creative egg art on the top went down a storm.
Meanwhile my pork belly sat within a Pad Kaprow. That was a stir-fried dish with fresh chilli, garlic and basil. It is said to be one of the most popular dishes in Thailand, and without being over loving of the dish, it is easy to see why.
While the food was delicious, reasonably priced and the service was spot on, it was a shame to see this town centre restaurant looking looking so quiet on a Saturday lunchtime.
