Our expert Thai chefs have been working their magic over a hot wok to create a fusion of Thai flavours and seasonal goodies for this year’s set festive menu. It’s Christmas meets Curry… and so much more with a selection of starters, mains and desserts to bring some zing to your festivities!
Featuring joyous starters such as Winter Warmer Wings (a little spicy, a lot moreish) and vegan Thai Spiced Baubles (our Thai version of arancini with a sweet water chestnut and mushroom filling) and a choice of hearty mains such as our Ding Dong Duck Curry with fall-off-the-bone duck confit in a feisty green curry sauce or a lighter option such as Santa’s Sea Bass Yellow Curry with pan-fried sea bass in a delicate yellow curry sauce.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a proper festive feast without a selection of mouthwatering desserts straight out of chocolatey heaven such as our Deep Winter Chocolate Tart – and a few festive Thai-inspired tipples! Our master Squidologist has crafted two potent cocktail special – The Grinch and the Merry Bakewell plus an alcohol-free Ginger Hothead – to make the mood merry.
