It’s not possible to praise Chedi enough for their combination of great food, great service, and complete confidence in their gluten free options. One of my friends suffers from coeliac disease, and finding a restaurant that serves reliably gluten free food (cross-contamination is almost always a risk) and can provide detailed information on what’s on offer, is always a challenge.
The food is very very good. Each dish had its own crisp distinctive flavour with ample portions. We recently travelled to Thailand where we enjoyed some wonderful meals, and I can say the food at Chedi is comparable and in some respects better.
McDonald’s four year old burger and fries.
However, some Thai dishes such as Green Papaya Salad with Prawns can be made with just a papaya shredder and a sturdy mortar and pestle.
As a rule red fresh fruit are two or three times hotter than green fruit, and dried pods are up to ten times hotter than fresh pods.
This is the best places to eat in Newtown – genuine Thai food using very fresh ingredients. I like the soft shell crab with green mango, fish soufflé and lamb panang. When we booked the manager offered us secure parking which is an advantage on King Street. This is now my favourite Thai and I am never disappointed by their food or service.
The quality of the food stands out here, one of the more reasonably priced Thai restaurants on King St. A group or couple sharing entrees and the generous mains will only be looking at around $20 a head.
