While in Blacktown checking out the Westpoint shops with Alice and Mr 10 last weekend, we thought it would be nice to have lunch in one of the local Blacktown eateries. We decided to escape the hustle and bustle of the Sunday shoppers and step out into Main Street to find a local restaurant in a quieter setting. We found our way to Blacktown Thai.

Blacktown Thai has an eye catching vivid orange decor and comfortable seating which gave the place a pleasant atmosphere. After we were seated we were handed the lunchtime specials menu but found out we could also order from the general menu, which offered more choices. We ended up ordering dishes from both.

To start we decided to share a serve of netted spring rolls and some satay chicken skewers. The light crispy netted spring rolls were stuffed with seafood and accompanied by a sweet chilli dipping sauce. The satay skewers were a generous portion of chicken breast smothered in a light peanut sauce.  The chicken was served juicy and tender. The satay sauce was mild enough for Mr 10 who woofed one down with no problem at all. For main course we shared bowls of choo chee prawn curry and a massaman beef. Steamed rice is always our favourite side dish with curries.

Choo chee curry is similar to a red curry but its always made with seafood. Fragrant shredded kaffir lime topped the curry which had a nice kick from the chilli. The beef in the massaman curry was melt in the mouth tender. We spooned portions of beef and potato on top of our rice before drowning it with the milder creamy massaman curry sauce. Mr 10, who rates curry and rice as his favourite meal, enjoyed both dishes. He kept us entertained  by giving us a bite by bite decription of everything he ate, masterchef style.

Lunch for three of us, entree, mains and drinks set me back $57.00. We could have eaten here cheaper by making different selections. We noticed a range of good value entrees on the lunch menu offering two pieces of various entree foods for just a few dollars. The tender chicken satay was just over three dollars for two generous skewers. 

  

I am fussy when it comes to Thai cuisine but I found the food and service here more than pleasant. Considering what we ordered, I thought the price was reasonable. Blacktown Thai is good spot for casual dining if you are in the area. They are located at 3/60 Main Street Blacktown. Their menu, operating hours and contact details can be found on their webpage.
