A winter business trip in Malmö starting on a rainy Sunday evening could be quite depressing if you do not crave the solo English speaking business men kind of place that belongs to the hotels around the railway station.

I decided to give a try to this place run by an Asian couple which is open 7/7 and clearly specialize in take away although no customer came to pick up orders while I was were. The menu is standard Thai food with a limited choice of starters and desserts but 4 pages of main dishes.

I took a Tom Yam Kung shrimp soup and wok cooked shrimps with curry. Both were very good and prepared with uncommonly fresh ingredients that were clearly recently imported from Asia (Kafir lime leaves for example). The soup came very quickly but I heard the shrimp being seared before so it wasn’t simply a microwave-to-bowl recipe.

The soup was copiously served and the main dish came with white rice and cold vegetables as side dishes. I didn’t specify anything regarding spiciness but it came to my liking, which is fierce so beware to ask the cook to reduce spices if you do not like your food too hot.

The restaurant was clean but quite cheap looking so it’s clearly not a place for a first date. I didn’t care because I was only there for the food which was up to my expectations.

The price for the two dishes was SEK 169, all in all a very good deal.

The restaurant has changed its name to May Sen. It is no longer called the Satang Thai.

It's a cheap and cheerful place. The decor makes it look like its main business is take-away, which it may well be, but the menu is complete and the food is excellent.

The Swedish husband is taking orders at the table and he's doing it great. Very friendly and asking about the preferred spicyness and in general very keen on everyone getting their food to their liking. I live in Malmö and for a very long time I desperately tried to find a Thai restaurant worth its name. Satang Thai is one of only two places I've found that live up to the expectations. The food is simply wonderful! Apparently, many ingredients are shipped from Thailand on a weekly basis. The chef, the Thai wife of the family, really knows what she's doing and does not take any short cuts in the kitchen. It's definitely worth the price!

The sitting area, porcelain and furniture could be nicer. The room itself is not optimal for a restaurant. I guess they saved money on that part instead of the kitchen ware and food. Personally, I'd rather have it that way than reversed.
