Another Thai restaurant has opened its doors in the booming area of Canley Vale on Canley Vale Road. The original Sitney Thai restaurant first opened up in Parramatta so it’s great to see restaurants expanding its doors in different areas.
Several friends and I come to Sitney to catch up and try out the place (a little bit confused as the menu says Thai and Laos cuisine whereas the website said Thai.. hmmm). For a Thursday night, it sure does look busy. Luckily for us though we get a table for four straight away and it was the last avilable table. Cheering.
Thought it was awesome that Sitney personalised all their bowls and plates with their logo.
Beef Salad $9.90
I have abnormal cravings for thai beef salads. I usually crave the spice, the zing and the juicyness of the trips of beef. This salad didn’t quite hit the spot. The slices of beef were slightly overcooked and dry. There wasn’t much dressing over the whole salad. And I think the lemon grass was cut up a bit too thick. Despite all of that, the salad still disappeared.
Grilled Ox Tongue
A must order every time we go to a thai/laos restaurant (as I say every time!). The ox tongue is cooked nicely with it still being juicy (though I probably do prefer it a bit less, maybe medium). The dipping sauce is something I’ve never had before – it almost was like a satay sauce. It still worked well with the ox tongue as it gave it a different flavour.
There’s nothing better than fat, juicy pieces of lao sausages! The dipping sauce that came with the sausages is more like a nuc cham (vietnamese dipping sauce) than the thai/laos one that it usually comes with.
Seafood Pad See Ew $15.90
The dish does taste like your average pad see ew but it was still delicious. There was enough sweetness of the soya sauce which helped the caramelisation of the seafood and noodles. There was flavour and the seafood was cooked nicely – everything was still succulent and juicy.
Chicken Green Curry $16.90
Green curry is almost like comfort food – very hard to go wrong. The dish was filled with chicken chunks and lots of veggies! I loved the touch of coconut cream on the top. My only downfall was that I wish there was more of the curry. I’m one of those that could almost drink curries because I enjoy eating it so much. I probably could have downed this baby all on my own, instead of sharing with 3 others.
