As part of our bid to support local businesses, we got some takeaway from Aroy Dee Thai, which opened earlier this year near the intersection of High Street Road and Blackburn Road. Prices are very wallet friendly and the food is pretty tasty.
The chicken pad Thai was loaded with chicken breast, spring onions and omelette ($7.95). What I love about pad Thai is the savoury sauce/gravy that the noodles are tossed through. This was a pretty good version of it.
We also got the seafood noodle soup ($5.50). We asked the staff if they could reduce the chilli in the soup, which they were happy to do so. Full of punchy Thai flavour and just on the verge of uncomfortably hot for us (which isn't a lot). It had a fairly decent amount of prawns, fish cake, calamari and mushrooms.
Verdict: we liked it a lot
A great cheap eats place. Definitely a keeper as you can easily have a good feed for less than $10. There is no MSG and they don't hold back on the gutsy strong Thai flavours (hello, fish sauce!). Definitely well worth a visit if you're in the area.
