A couple from Victoria had called us up this weekend to let us know that they would be in Sooke this past Sunday night and wanted to know if we wanted to meet up for dinner. Knowing that they are Thai fanatics, having spent months in Thailand and learning the culture, we didn’t hesitate to suggest we go to Nut Pop Thai, on Sooke Rd.
We love Thai food and have eaten at Nut Pop many times before, but we were interested in finding out just how good and authentic Nut Pop Thai is from two people who love the food.
We walked into the restaurant just past 6pm and was politely and quickly greeted by our server and host and sat us down at a nice wooden table for the four of us. We all ordered some Thai beer, which quickly came as well as our appies – we had the coconut prawns with the sweet chili sauce.
The prawns were cooked perfectly. Still very plump and juicy, which can be hard to do in the deep fryer. For the main course our friends ordered a Tom Yum and said it was really good. Ingredients were fresh and the taste was spot on, the way it should be.
I had ordered the Green Curry and was not disappointed at all. It was a hot dish, spicy and flavourful, just the way I like it.
The service and food was excellent. We were glad our friends enjoyed Nut Pop Thai and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone. Very clean, very efficient and fresh product with a wonderful taste.
If you haven’t made the trek into Nut Pop Thai yet, what are you waiting for?
