ASUKOHT:  Vana-Posti 7

MILJÖÖ: Kes kunagi samades ruumides asuvas St. Patricku pubis on käinud, sel võib sõnaotseses mõttes “karp lahti vajuda”. Maailm kuhu sisened on aasiapärane, rahulik, stiilne, detaile täis, muusika paitab kõrvu ning zen tunne võbiseb üle su keha. Peen sisustus kulgeb läbi erinevate saalide. See saab alguse restorani esimesest ruumist- chill alast, kus oleks mõnus hilisel õhtutunnil kokteile ja suupisteid nautida. Laienedes edasi tagumise saali interjöörile, kus on idamaist hõngu tunda siin-seal. Avatud koka köögipool annab võimaluse ühe silmaga piiluda toidu valmistamise protsessi.

TOIT: Aasia köök ning peamiselt Tai toidud. Vürtsikusest ei saa seepärast ei üle ega ümber ning tuleb arestada, et see kuulubki Tai köögi juurde. Riis, mida tuuakse lauda, aitab tulekahju vaos hoida.

PLUSSID:

  • Ilus interjöör

  • Uued maitsed

  • Võimalus rentida ruume eraüritusteks või osaleda Tai köögi kokakoolis

MIINUSED:

  • Kohati kõrged hinnad

HINNAD:

  • Supid: 7€-8€

  • Salatid: 6€-9€

  • Pearoad: 7€-19€

  • Magustoidud: 5€-6€

INTERIOR: If You have ever been to the old St. Patrick bar, after this makeover, it is an actual miracle, what has happen to the place. The world that You are stepping in to (the restaurant) is calm, modern and full of little details, where the music hugs Your ears with a zen vibe. Exquisite furnishing is everywhere in different halls. It starts with the first room- the chill area, where it would be great to have a few coctails and snacks in the evening. The room expands to another hall in the back, where the interior is very much alike with the cuisine. The open chef area is a great way to lay eyes on how the food is being prepared.

FOOD: Asian cuisine, concentrating on Thai dishes. Spice is something that comes with the culture, this is something that You have to keep in mind. Rice, that is brought to the table, will calm the palettes of different variations of spiciness.

PROS:

  • A nice interior

  • New flavors

  • There is an opportunity to rent rooms for private events or attend Thai cuisine’s cooking class

  • A spice loving persons heaven

CONS:

  • Somewhat expensive price

PRICES:

  • Salads:6€-9€

  • Soups:7€-8€

  • Mains:7€-19€

  • Desserts: 5€-6€

HED TOD SE-EAW

....

Praetud austerservik, sojakaste 6€

Küllaltki soolane kombo, mida oli snäkina hea mitmekesi nokkida ning mille kogus oli isegi üpriski suur. Võiks nimetada seda ka saunasnäkiks ja julgeme seda soovitada proovimiseks.

..

Fried Oyster Mushroom and Soy Sauce 6€

A quite salty combination, which was a good snack to share at the table, with the dish being a reasonable size. We would like to call it a sauna snack, because of its salty flavoring. We recommend You try it!

....

YUM WOON SEN TALAY 

....

Klaasnuudlisalat, krevetid, kalmaar, krabiliha, tšilli-laimikaste 9€

Heas mõttes huvitav salat, milles segunesid kokku erinevad värsked maitsed ja mida saatis jällegi kerge vürtsinoot. Kusjuures kalmaar oli väga hästi valmistatud! Julgeme soovitada!

..

Glass noodles salad, prawns, squid, mussels, chili-lime dressing 9 €

In a good way, an interesting salad, where very different texures and flavors met with some spice to them as well. The squid was very nicely prepared. We recommend!

....

 

TOM YUM GOONG 

....

Vürtsikas krevetisupp, sidrunhein, tšilli 8€

Üldiselt mõnusalt vürtsikas supp, mille tiigerkrevettide kogusega kokk tagasi polnud hoidnud! Üks meie seast oleks soovinud kraad leebemat suppi, sest nuuskamine oli pea kohustuslik ning pisarad ei olnud kauged tulema. Supi kõrvale pakuti ka riisi, et vürtsikust maa peale tagasi tuua. Soovitame kindlasti proovida, aga olge valmis suureks tšillikoguseks - inimeste vürtsitaluvused on erinevad.

..

Spicy prawn soup, lemongrass, chili 8€

In general, a nice spicy and tangy soup, with a good amount of prawns in them! One of us would have liked a little more subtle spice, because of the constant need of blowing the nose and almost being in tears(she is a light weight of spice).

The soup was served with rice to calm the palettes. We would suggest You try this, but be aware of the spice- we all have very different tolerance to it.

POH PIA TOD

....

Friteeritud kevadrullid klaasnuudlite ja köögiviljadega 5€

Kevadrullid olid kastmega koos üks mõnus paar, aga igatsesime leida rohkem sisu nende seest. Klaasnuudlid olid igatahes ägedad, ent kui menüü on kõike huvitavat ja kirevat täis, siis tavaliste kevadrullide tellimine ei tundu enam ahvatlev. Lisaks oleks oodanud kohata kevadrulli ümber rohkem õhulist ja krõbedat tainast.

..

Deep fried spring rolls with glass noodles and vegetables 5 €

The spring rolls were longer than usual and with the sauce they made a nice couple. However, we missed some more filling in them. The glass noodles were a nice touch, but if the menu is filled with interesting choices, then the spring rolls are not that appealing of a choice. Moreover, we would have wanted a more crispy and airy crust on the roll.

TOD MAN GOONG

....

Marineeritud krevetikoogid, ploomikaste 8€

Parajalt soolased krevetikoogid jätsid meile positiivse mulje. Maitsestatus oli paigas ning paks krõbe kiht oli nagu kirss tordil. Ploomikaste lisas hapukust ning magusust. Koos kastmega jaksaks isegi rohkem kui ühe portsu süüa kooke. Hind aga on võib-olla natuke soolane sellele eelroale.

..

Marinated prawn patties, plum sauce 8€

The flavoring of the prawn patties was just right, maybe even a little on the salty side, which suited them very well. They had a nice crispy outer layer, which was a perfect little touch to the patties. Plum sauce added tanginess and sweetness. With the sauce we could have fit even more patties in our bellies. However, the price was a little salty for the starter.

....

 

SOM TOM THAI 

....

Värske papaia salat, krevetid, maapähklid, tamarindikaste 8€

Külm ning väga vürtsikas salat. Üsna omamoodi maitsega salat, pähklid olid väga head. Selle külma salati puhul kõlab papaia ahvatlevalt, aga vürtsikuse selja tagant see maitses väga esile ei tule. Tekitas mõnes mõttes segaseid emotsioone oma värskuse, vürtsikuse ja samas ka kergelt magususega.

..

Raw papaya salad, prawns, peanut, tamarind dressing 8 €

A cold and very spicy salad. It had very many different flavors to it, where the peanuts were an outstanding element. The papaya sounds amazing, but with the spiciness of the dish, the flavor of it does not stand out. We had mixed feelings with it- It had freshness, spiciness and a slight sweetness, but we felt like it is a good salad to share with some milder flavored dish on the side.

....

 

 


TOFU DELIGHT

....

Tofu, shiitake-seened, seller, sojakaste 7€

Kui keegi küsiks konkreetselt :”Hei, kuule kus on sinu arust hõrgum tofu Tallinnas?”, siis meil vastamisega kaua aega ei läheks. Pehmus on selle roa kindel märksõna ja elastselt krõmpsjad seened on meie silmis alati teretulnud. Ilus taimetoitlaste unistus, mida soovitame ka kõigile mittetaimetoitlastele.

..

Silk tofu, shiitake mushroom, celery, soy gravy 7 €

If someone would ask us: “Hey, do You know a great place to get tofu in Tallinn?”, we would not hesitate for long. The soft texture of the dish was definitely a keyword for it. With the cruncy mushrooms, it was a perfect fit with the soft tofu. A beautiful vegetarian dream, which we recommend for all of our vegetarian viewers.

KANG PED 

....

Punane karri bambusevõrsete ja veiselihaga 16€

Üks meist leidis, et veiseliha ei olnud parim valik selle roa juurde. Teistele aga liha väga meeldis. Vürtsikuse eest tahaks samuti hoiatada kõiki madalama taluvusega inimesi.

..

Red curry with beef and  bamboo shoots 16€

One of us felt that the beef was not the best choice for the dish. Others liked the meat very much. The spice was kicking in again, which all of the spice enjoyers were loving. A fair warning for those, who do not like it that much.

....

 

PLA NEUNG MANOW 

....

Grillitud kala, tšilli-laimikaste 14€

Ühele jäi kala liigselt magedaks vaatamata särtsakale kastmele. Teistele tundus aga väga huvitav, isegi veidi pähkline ja julgeks kindlasti soovitada.

..

Fried fish, sweet chili sauce 14 €

For one of us the fish was too bland even with the spunky sauce. To others, it was very interesting, even a little nutty and we would recommend it for fish lovers!

....

KANG KHEW WAN 

....

Roheline karri baklažaani ja pardiga 18€

Mõnusalt pähkline ja kreemine. Koos riisiga moodustab maitsva ja täitva portsu. Roog oleks nauditav ka taimse versioonina- eks tasub teenindajalt uurida võimaluste kohta. Kui mäletame õigesti, siis tundsime seal karris peituvat viigimarja, see oli tõesti 10/10-st sobilik sinna.

..

Green curry with eggplant and duck 18€

A nice nutty and creamy combination. With rice, it was very delightful and a filling portion. The dish would be pleasing with the vegetarian version as well (check with the waiter for the options). If we remember correctly, we felt a fig taste in the curry, which was made for the dish, 10/10!

....

 

 


TAB TIM KROB

....

Vesikastan siirupis, kookospiim 5€

Liigne magustoidu alternatiivsus ei võimalda rooga omaks võtta. See oli ka põhjus, miks küll huvitava olemusega vesikastani magustoit meile eriti meelepärane polnud. Kujutage ennast ette söömas piimjat vedelikku jääkuubikute ning punakate värskete viljadega, mille sarnast te (eeldatavasti) varem söönud ei ole. Liiga võõras kombinatsioon? Meie jaoks oli.

..

Water chestnut in syrup, coconut milk 5€

This was a little too alternative for us. This was the reason, why the dessert was not that appealing to us. Imagine, a milky liquid with ice inside and red little balls inside, which You (probably) have not tasted before. Too strage of a combination? For us, yes.

....

....

Kookose jäätis, litši, jackfruit e jaka 5€

Jälle midagi nii tähelepanu püüdvat ja maitsvat! Eksootilised viljad ja kookose jäätis on tõesti hea kombinatsioon ning viivad sind üheskoos kulinaarsele rännakule Aasiasse. Jakat pidasime esialgu ubadeks ja päris pikka aega isegi.

..

Coconut ice cream, lychee, jackfruit 5 €

Again, something eye catching and delicious! Exotic fruit and coconut ice cream is a nice flavor combination to mentally fly You to a culinary experience in Asia. We had not had jackfruit before, so we thought that they were beans at first.

....

 

KHAO NIAO MAMUANG

....

Magus kleepuv riis, küps mango 6€

Tõesti ootamatult hea! “Palun veel üks. Lausa hommiku-, lõuna-, ja õhtusöögiks.” See lõik väljendab meie mõtetejada peale selle magustoidu söömist. Oleme igatahes edaspidi müüdud kui kuuleme sõna “magus kleepuv riis”. Olemuselt sarnaneb see riisipudrule, kuid on mõnusama tekstuuriga. Kirsiks tordil on mahlane mango. Soovitame, soovitame, soovitameee!

..

Sweet sticky rice, ripe mango 6€

It was Incredibly delicious! “One more please. For breakfast, lunch or dinner." This is the thought we had after we took a bite of everything. For the record, we are sold now, after someone says “sweet sticky rice”. It has the similarity of rice pudding with a smoother texture. The sweet flavor on top is a juicy mango. Recommend!

....

KLUAY BUAD CHI

....

Soe banaan kookospiimas 5€

Nüüd tahaks küll ümber lükata ütluse “Esmalt süüakse silmadega”, sest vaatamata hädisele ja üldse mitte apetiitsele välimusele, on soe banaan kookospiimas midagi eriti maitsvat ja alternatiivset. Seepärast ütlemegi omalt poolt vaid seda, et tegemist ON maitsva magustoiduga, proovige kindlasti!

..

Warmed banana in coconut milk 5€

This is the part where we would like to say that, first You do not “eat with your eyes”, because the view was not that pleasing to the dessert. However, the taste was really delicious and alternative. We would highly recommend this for curbing the sweet tooth inside You!
