To start I chose king prawns wrapped in a pastry that was deep fried and served with sweet chilli sauce. I would have enjoyed this more if the pastry hadn't been overcooked, you can see from my photo how brown it was.
My main was the massaman curry, which was delicious! Probably the best dish I've eaten in a restaurant this year, I will be dreaming of it tonight. The curry base was creamy and had a pea-nutty taste to it, I couldn't help but drown my rice in it. The owner recommended chicken over beef in the curry and I'm so glad she did, the meat was tender and meat slipped off the bone like silk on skin. I was so impressed.
Prices here are very reasonable and the owner noticed how we had food leftover and kindly packed it in boxes for us to take away. She reminded me of my mum as she always encourages my friends to take food home whenever they are at my house and doesn't like to see it go to waste.
I have high praises for Thai Cottage and would recommend it if you're looking for a casual place to eat for a low price.
