Eating Out – East Meets Wests

Five Stars Thaitanic
You don’t have to travel to the East to experience authentic Thai food, in fact you need to go west. Five Stars Thaitanic restaurant in Mt Annan is producing fantastic Thai food that’s taking the Western Suburbs by storm.
Start with all of your favourites in the mixed entrée which includes crispy curry puffs, fish cakes, money bags and satay chicken, served with a side of sweet chilli sauce. Or have a try of one of Thailand’s most popular dishes, ‘Tom Yum Koong’, a hot and sour prawn soup that is the perfect palate cleanser.
For main course choose from Thaitanic’s prawn pad thai, BBQ beef salad or for something really special indulge in the marinated BBQ lamb ribs served with spicy Thai sauces. For dessert you won’t be able to resist the deep fried ice cream. Consisting of a huge scoop of ice cream wrapped in sponge cake, coated in desiccated coconut and served with your choice of chocolate, caramel or strawberry topping, this dish sure is a special treat.

Chilli Chilli Bambu Restaurant
Still in the west and tucked away in Campbelltown’s Western Suburbs Leagues Club is Chilli Chilli Bambu. This Thai restaurant is dishing up a menu packed with deliciously authentic, spicy Thai food.
Step into the wonderful Asian setting and choose from a mouth-watering menu that could have your eyes watering too. To start try the Thai-style crispy salt & pepper squid or there’s the egg net rolls wrapped with prawns, coconut, crushed peanuts and mixed salad. You’ll be able to taste the fresh curry paste in the king prawn curry flavoured with lots of chilli or try the chef’s speciality, soft shell crab served with a delicious coconut salad.
With their traditional flavours and authentic Thai dishes, Chilli Chilli Bambu certainly is doing a great job of bringing the East to the West!
