Thai 29, South Melbourne
Back in the days when I was slumming it with the Route 55 tram folk, I’d walk past the site of Thai 29 and not think much of it. However, reports of it’s excellency began to trickle through the office and it became our choice for our next team lunch. Thai 29 delivers competent Thai home cooking in a welcoming atmosphere that kept everyone in the team content and well fed. Even Jenny, even Anthony, everyone. It become a viable option for future lunches as well.
I’ve been exactly twice at this point in time I’ve and had the clear soup (as above) as well as the Penang curry. The curry and the stir fries are where its at. The clear soup was fine but a bit boring but we got a definite kick out of the other dishes served here. The curry was rich and flavoursome and all meals being of a great portion size as well. Thai 29 delivers on crowd pleasing food and I can hope of Anthony ordering too much food and giving me his spring rolls again.
