With nearly all Thai restaurants sharing the common theme of an all-encompassing menu,
Phranakhon offers the ideal solution, tapas. Mains and signature dishes are served in colourful starter-sized portions at a very reasonable price to transform your usual two-course meal into a three, four, five, or even six course meal, no one is judging!
You can navigate your way through their menu with ease, it provides a section for pork lovers, veggie lovers, curry lovers and a whole plethora of street food tapas dishes which anyone would have a tough time picking from. You’ll find Phranakhon in a building visibly packed with character, on the equally as characteristic cobbles of Grape Lane.
Now, Rice Style. This little gem can be found just outside the walls on Bishopsthorpe Road. If you, or someone you know is slightly on the fence about thai food, bring them here. You’ll get that authentic Thai taste you’re looking for, but in a slightly more contemporary and stylish atmosphere.
If you’re willing to throw yourself in at the deep end of signature dishes, you can opt for a Gang Lueng – jumbo prawns cooked in yellow curry and coconut milk served with squid ink spaghetti. If you want to play it slightly safer, you can opt for a Gang Phed, a Thai red curry with aubergines, beans, courgettes, and sweet thai basil. Delicious. The emphasis is on authenticity here, spice included, so if it’s spice you’re after, Rice Style have got your back.
If there’s one thing the rise of Thai cuisine can offer us, it’s inspiration. In a similar way to the evolution of Britain’s take on an authentic Indian curry, we’ll no doubt soon be having conversations at the pub about who’s mum can make the best Pad Thai.
