This restaurant, occupying one floor of an 1864 sandstone building that was originally a sailor's home, offers two eating experiences. The restaurant is a formal yet relaxed dining area, offering some more unusal Thai dishes for those who enjoy an adventure in food. Try Crab and Beansprout Omelette or Squid and Pork in Coconut Cream. Bookings are essential. Alternatively you can just turn up and eat at one of the long communal tables in the canteen. Enjoy Stir Fried Mussels with Chilli Jam and Basil or Papaya, Peanut and Dried Prawn salad..
I had lunch here with two girlfriends last week. We shared two starters, two mains and the dessert selection.
The service was attentive without being intrusive. The wine was always topped up before our glasses were empty.
We all found the food delicious and inventive (the banana blossom salad, in particular, was outstanding).
If your expectation of Thai food is the cheap and familiar selection found in suburban Thai eateries, then Sailors Thai is not for you. This is genuine Thai food, the like of which is seldom found outside Thailand.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sailors Thai to anyone who is adventurous enough to seek out a genuinne Thai dining experience.
We paid A$85 per head (including a generous tip - the price also included two bottles of well priced Pinot Gris).
We visited Sailors Thai late on a friday evening wereupon we breezed in and were rapidly seated by friendly and efficent staff. After a short wait we received our drink and set about perusing the menu, the first thing I noticed was the distinct lack of pad Thai and well most of the staple dishes we are used to in London. However fear not as all the dishes are superb if not a little adventurous at times but beatuifully presented and served. My only complaint was that as a filthy smoker I had to step outside to smoke but you know what when you are in the rocks in sydney with a view to die for maybe you should go for more cigarettes! Over all a superb meal can't wait for a repeat.
