Slap bang in the middle of the shopping haven that is Buchanan Street, you'll find the grand and impressive Chaophraya Glasgow - it's pretty hard to miss! The now iconic restaurant serves up an authentic Thai dining experience and their new menu is definitely something to get excited about.
"Fusing culinary imagination with fine cuisine, Chaophraya's new menu will deliver a sophisticated edge to Thai dining, by offering a mix of eclectic and contemporary dishes inspired by tastes from across the Thai regions."
One aspect of Thai culture that Chaophraya really tries to emulate is the amazing Thai hospitality. Their motto is 'Ow Jai Sai' - we care about everything. And we really did feel looked after. My friend who was coming along with me was running a little late due to train dramas and they couldn't have been more accommodating, completing understanding and sympathising with the situation. We just felt wonderfully looked after right from the get go!
And then it was time to browse the mouth-watering menu!
We just had to go for the sharing platter to start so that we could try a bit of everything! It looked amazing when it arrived and we marvelled over all the tasty little bites to start us off.Then I had an amazing Thai Red Prawn Curry, that was delicious and just the right amount of spice. Across from me the Pad Thai smelt just sublime.
I opted for the Mango Meringue Roll, the freshness of the mango and the passionfruit was gorgeous and it was just perfectly light and refreshing. The White Chocolate Box also looked amazing!
Thanks so much for Chaophraya for having me along - we had a ball and will definitely be back!
