Eating Out West Midlands

Review: Thai Brasserie, Sutton Coldfield

22nd October 2014

On my continuing quest to hunt our great local eateries, next stop was Thai Brasserie on Beeches Walk in Sutton Coldfield. I headed over with my friend L, back from university for a few days for a good catch up.

Both lovers of Thai food we were a bit spoilt for choice, the menu was jam packed with Thai favourites.

For starter I can rarely see past the Chicken satay, and a bad one often doesn’t bode well for the rest of the meal as you can see here. Luckily this satay was very good. Moist (hate that word!) chicken and a fiery delicious peanut sauce, although a little oily. L went for the Prawn Dumpling which she felt was perfectly cooked and particular praise to the accompanying sticky sweet soy dipping sauce, which I also tried and declared a hit! We also shared another of my all time favourites, a Yum salad with Beef. This version was excellently executed, super hot (just the way it should be) and full of crunchy fresh veg and herbs with tender beef.




Mains wise, I strayed from my usual Stir fry type main course and opted for the Thai Red Curry with Chicken and some sticky rice. This was packed full of chicken and thai vegetables and was also very spicy, making my eyes water a little! I loved it ( although I got through two large glasses of water) but I think some might find it too spicy. L had the King Prawn Pad Thai, which looked superb with copious large plump prawns.



Another great find in our local area, and there was me thinking there wasn’t any good Thai food in Brum, I’ve now found quite a few! Where’s your favourite Thai?


Disclosure: We paid in full for our meal

    Sabai Sabai in Moseley is my favourite. Always good, and with a fab atmophere especially on a weekend. Reminds me that I haven’t been for awhile 🙂 Good that you are finding nice Thai places.
