We arrived on a Saturday night without a reservation, but they helpfully seated us at a table in the cocktail bar and served our meal there, which was not only a perfectly acceptable arrangement but had the added bonus of the entertainment provided by the bar staff going about the elaborate business of constructing cocktails. As vegetarians we were pleased to be offered plenty of vegetable and tofu variations on the usual Thai classics, and I opted to start with vegetable Tom Kha whilst my companion went for vegetable Tom Yam. The Tom Kha was a little on the watery side and could have done with more coconut and, for my taste, less broccoli and cauliflower and more mushrooms! However my companion, a brassica devotee, gratefully accepted all the broccoli I passed in her direction! I sampled the Tom Yam and found it to be delightfully flavoured - not overpowered with chilli - but with a suspiciously fishy note (to be fair, the menu didn't actually state that it was vegetarian, and my companion disagreed with me anyway about the fishy hints). We moved on to a tofu red curry and some vegetable noodles, served with egg fried rice. The curry was delightfully flavoured and aromatic without being overpowering, and the veggies were delicate and crunchy. The rice had an unusual and pleasant nutty flavour. Fried in ground-nut oil perhaps? One to try at home. Not being fans of cocktails we washed all this down with a perfectly acceptable bottle of the house white. All in all thoroughly recommended. Expensive? Not really. Nothing in Dublin is cheap and our dinner at RTG was comparable price-wise to other meals we experienced during our visit.
