Silom Soi Song Thai Restaurant

Silom Soi Song Thai Restaurant

If you are walking along Oxford St in Sydney’s electric suburbs of Darlinghurst, you may have walked past Silom Soi Song without even knowing it. This Thai restaurant is one of those places, where you say to yourself “looks busy, I’ll check it out later”, and slowly but surely, I did.

It was an intimate dinner with like-minded food & lifestyle bloggers whom I can call ‘great friends’. Arlang, the owner of the restaurant was ever so polite, he not only made us feel special but the entire restaurant received some of that love too.

The interior is quite busy and a little confusing, maybe that’s its charm? I do enjoy traditional Thai food having recently been to Bangkok and Pattaya. I was looking for the same experience here.

On the table this evening we got to explore a few dishes and to note majority of its wine are sourced through direct with the cellar door.

Well, it was a delicious night out and plenty of food and wine to sample. I did enjoy the food and I look forward to returning back for a casual night out with other friends.
