A close family friend of ours was going away so we decided to take her out to dinner. My mum and I had heard great things about De Grand, which is a Thai restaurant near our house. I loved their curries! If you come here I definitely recommend you try at least one curry! Their website is http://www.degrand.co.nz/
On to the food!
|The table set out|
On to the food!
|Prawns wrapped in bacon|
|Mixed appetiser! From the front - curry puff, spring roll, moneybag and chicken satay. I got to try the curry puff and the satay. The curry puff was average but I loved the sauce that came with the satay!|
|I ordered a side of roti. It was nice but quite chewy and not as crispy as I would've liked.|
|The spicy chicken curry! This was very spicy but very nice!|
|The duck curry! This was my favourite! I loved the grapes in the creamy sauce!|
|Ped Ped seafood - mixed seafood with thai chilli paste and herbs|
|Steamed fish with ginger and spring onion|
|Chicken pad thai! I loved this - it tasted very authentic!|
|My family friend's plate of food with rice and some of the curry we ordered!|
|My brother ordered the ice-cream. It was great but you could buy similar from the super market|
|My parents and family friend shared the sticky rice pudding. I got to try some and it was good! It had a nice coconut flavour in the rice!|
|I shared the creme brulee with my brother's friend. It was sweet and creamy! I think the caramel top was a bit too thick though.|
We were all very full (in a good way) after the meal. The food was great and I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Thai food!
