It’s the aromas, the freshness of the ingredients, the balance of flavours and the play of textures, that makes Asian food, one of my all time favourites.
Touted as one of the most healthy cuisines around the world, Thai food tops my list when it comes to ordering food. Hence, a few days back, with hunger pangs kicking in, I decided to give ‘Soi Thai‘ a try.
Located in Malviya Nagar, Soi Thai is a delivery-only outlet, that aims to deliver authentic Asian delicacies to your doorstep. The fuss free menu moves across some drool-inducing Asian appetisers and soups, takes a move towards the calorie conscious people with their salads, and then moves to some hearty curries and ends at some delicious desserts.
The order arrives in neatly packaged individual boxes and the portion sizes are good enough to meet the prices of the dishes. I started my meal with a sweet and spicy fish(basa) salad, that was generously topped with fresh coriander. The chicken satay turned out to be the best dish, so much so, that it would make me order from Soi Thai, again and again. Generally, chicken satays go dry and chewy, but the ones I got from Soi Thai were tender and juicy. Slithered with a flavoursome fresh marinade, the chicken satays were devoured on sight with the super-spicy peanut sauce that comes along with it. Without doubt, a must have! The Thai green curry, turned out to be so much better than I had expected. Coconut based gravy with mellow hint of basil and lemongrass, the fragrant green curry was finished with some steamed rice. The chicken Thai basil wasn’t the best that I’ve had, and thus, turned out to be the only thing that didn’t quite meet the cut. The green beans were messing around with the overall texture of the minced chicken, and the flavour of basil didn’t come across as dominant, how I would expect it to be one of my all time favourites.
Confession: Overall, my experience of Soi Thai turned out to be rather good and I didn’t regret a bit after ordering from here. I’d love to see a tweaked recipe of the chicken Thai basil and would certainly have the chicken satays, everytime I order from here.
Value for money: 3.5/5
