Bangkok Brothers, 91 James Street, Northbridge, Phone 6161 6562.
Confusion … Bangkok Brothers opened a short while ago in Northbridge. The place had me a little confused but in a good way. It seems they offer coffee, cake, cocktails, Thai food and also live music, on occasion. Yeesh, that’s a lot for one venue.
After visiting, when I think of Bangkok Brothers now I think of fun. What fun to catch a late night band and sip a martini or a glass of fizz. And, sample some pretty good Thai Food and desserts. Definite fun.
The space is enormous but very pretty with loads of plants hanging on walls or sitting in planters around the place. It’s sectioned into two main dining areas which are petitioned with, yep, you guessed it, plants. It’s lovely.
For those looking for java and dessert there is a café like space at the front of the Restaurant and pavement seating as well.
Speaking of Thai food, the menu is quite eclectic with small plates on offer and more traditional dishes like Pad Thai etc.
I opted for Pad Thai, meh, it’s a favourite of mine and it was not disappointing. Loads of Chicken, Noodles, Vegetables and Tofu in a delicate sweet, salty, fishy stir fry sauce. Yum.
The noodles were a little disappointing but the combination of flavours was very good and I couldn’t stop eating.
Service was a little confusing but they will sort out those minor problems quickly I imagine.
I wish them well, it’s a great idea.
