Kam Thai restaurant in Whitby is a delicious Asian feast just waiting for you to discover it. Here's our experience…
Tucked away near Whitby train station is an exotic treat for weary rail travellers, holidaymakers and locals. Specialising in express lunches and dinner feasts, Kam Thai is a taste of South East Asia in the heart of Whitby. We visited Kam Thai early on a Tuesday evening armed with a hearty appetite. I love Thai food and I was really looking forward to tasting the delicious combinations of dishes on offer.
To start we ordered the Kam Thai Platter for two; a selection of goodies including the best prawn toast we’ve ever tasted, satay chicken skewers with a delicious peanut sauce, king prawns wrapped in filo pastry dipped in sweet chilli sauce, fresh Thai fish cakes, and vegetable spring rolls.
These delightful fried treats were served up piping hot, presented beautifully and accompanied by a selection of authentic dips. Personally, this is my favourite point of any meal and this combination of flavours, tastes and textures really hit the spot.
We made light work of the tasty starters and so we ordered the main courses with our lovely waitress, Natalie. For our next round of dishes we ordered; tofu massaman, goong pad prik Thai dum, and a national classic – king prawn Pad Thai.
The massaman is a sweet dish with big flavours of peanuts and chilli spice, prepared with tofu, the texture complimented nicely with the potatoes which are staples to this dish. Massaman is a moreish filling dish.
For our next plate, we ate the excitingly named ‘Goong Pad Prik Thai Dum’, a dish of jumbo prawns stir-fried with onions, peppers and spring onions in a black bean sauce. This contrasted well with the massaman and offered a juicy bite of flesh in the prawns. A very pretty plate of food when it is served.
Pad Thai is a national tradition in Thailand, available on every street corner in every town all over Thailand. This sweet and savoury dish has a lot going for it and Kam Thai delivered the authentic experience here. Wrapped in a fried egg basket, this fantastic meal was good to look at and a joy to eat. We highly recommend it!
The mango sorbet is a magnificent fruity feast of epic proportions…we don't need to say any more than just try it for yourself!
