Amazing Thai Restaurant Nanaimo

Amazing Thai RestaurantThose who appreciate the delicate taste of Asian cuisines will want to try Amazing Thai Restaurant, 486A Franklyn Street. This cozy nine-table restaurant tucked away on the edge of Nanaimo's Old City Quarter is reasonably priced. Authentic photos and souvenirs from Thailand hang from the walls and you can hear the food sizzle in the nearby kitchen.

There's a choice of six curry dishes, including curried noodle soup. The 10 stir fry dishes may be built around cashew, ginger, sweet and sour, green beans, pineapple, basil, tofu, or sweet chili. The classic Thai dish is phad thai (fried noodles), but you're better off ordering the amazing thai noodles which comes with peanut sauce. Regular vegetarian choices include tofu with peanut sauce, green papaya salad, stir fried vegetables with cashews, and curry fried noodles, although almost everything can be prepared without meat upon request.

Some of the dishes are rather spicy, so pay attention to the code numbers next to the dishes on the menu (those with an 8 are the hottest). Otherwise, ask your server. Mugs of ginger tea or draft beer are available. Amazing Thai opens Tuesday to Friday from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 9 pm, Saturday 5 to 9 pm only.
