Revisted April 2010 Our lunch was good. We chose a starter and main course from their lunch specials menu for £7.50 and a Thai beer at £2.50 each (total bill £20)
Our starters were Chicken Sate and Spring Rolls  – followed by mains which were; Pad Thai noodles with beensprouts and prawns and Thai Red curry with fragrant rice.  It was good value, friendly service and a popular venue. JI  

 

September 2009 Local restaurateur Miff Kayum has recently opened Bangkok Brasserie to be able to showcase the authentic food of his wife Soraya’s birthplace, Thailand.  Although the food reflects the wonderful spicy Thai flavours Miff believes whenever possible in sourcing his ingredients locally.It was very busy when we arrived which is not surprising as they are doing a launch offer of a 2 course lunch for only £5.95 (not sure how much longer this will be available).  If you are in Winchester and looking for lunch choosing some Thai food makes a delightful change from the usual pub grub.  As we were doing a review and wanted a greater choice we chose from the Special Launch & Takeaway Menu.

With a lot of advice from Soraya we decided to share mixed starters consisting of some Thai Prawn crackers served with sweet chilli sauce, Vegetable Spring Rolls filled with carrot, cabbage, mushroom, bean sprouts, and glass noodles,  Chicken Satay, grilled chicken in their home-made satay recipe served with peanut sauce and cucumber relish.  Pandan Chicken marinated and wrapped in pandan leaves, deep fried and served with a dark soy sauce and sesame, Thai Fish Cakes, fresh fish blended in red curry paste and green beans and Thai herbs served with sweet chilli sauce topped with crushed peanut and cucumber relish.  All delicious but our favourite as we’d never tried it before was the Pandan Chicken.To follow we shared Som Tam, traditional Thai green papaya salad with cherry tomatoes & carrot flavoured with chilli and peanut, Pad Thai Thailand’s favourite dish of flat noodles, stir-fried with bean sprouts, spring onions, crushed roasted peanuts and a dash of tamarind sauce with prawns, Cashew Nut Chicken Bangkok Brasserie’s recipe, lightly battered chicken, stir-fried with cashew nuts, onions and peppers, Massaman Beef, beef cooked in authentic ground peanut curry with potatoes, onions, red peppers and a dash of tamarind and Tamarind Duck served with sweet and sour sauce home made Tamarind sauce.  These dishes were accompanied with two servings of Jasmine Rice and a serving of Coconut rice.  Lots of exotic flavours but the duck was extra special!We shared Thai mango with coconut rice and a less unusual pud, banana ice cream and Pecan cheese cake.  It was a lovely lunch and we recommend.We only had a soft drink or a beer.

19/25

Report: CJ

5/5 = Cannot be improved upon, 4/5 = Very good, 3/5 = Good,
2/5 = Satisfactory, 1/5 = Poor, 0/5 = Terrible

The higher the “Yummy” factor, the better the food & service. The higher the number of £ signs the more expensive. (Roughly one £ sign = £5 per head)
