Was looking for Thai food in the local area as my mom really wanted some for her birthday dinner. We didn't want to go to the default Thai express as the one nearby is horrific! It tastes nothing like any of the other ones. There is a lot of variations which there should not be as its supposed to be a chain. Some are good but the local one is terrible.
Freshly Thai is a restaurant and as such is not really catering for the to go/takeaway market. When I see this it usually concerns me as they are not fully prepared for takeaway and this proved to be the case. We got a red curry, green curry and a Noodle Soup. I was initially very surprised at the tiny rice portions. It really was not big enough at all but I thought maybe I only had a quick look that it might be ok. When serving the food at home it was pretty clear the serving size was far too small. The curry portion was ok but had very little meat in it which was disappointing as the flavour was there. even though we asked for medium it was hot. The green curry especially was very spicy. The rice portions were tiny and nowhere near what you get at other places. This was disappointing as the meal was quite pricey. Overall the flavour was good but very stingy meat in the curry and tiny rice portion sizes really disappointed. The tip I would give is to get another rice for every 2 curries. For me portion size and value for money are hugely important and the lack of meat was a big deal for me.
I don't like going negative reviews so I want to add that I had a quick glimpse at a few people eating at the restaurant whilst I was there and although I did not clearly see the portion sizes seemed to be better than what we got. Give it a go and eat in don't takeaway as they are not set up for that. The service was very good and its always a plus when you can see into the kitchen and its clean!
