Katin is a new Thai restaurant in a small group of shops on Fairfield Street, near a lawn mower shop and a newsagent. I’ve been there once already, but I was alone at that time, which didn’t give me much of a chance to sample the menu.
Today there were two of us and we ordered what we’d normally order at other thai or thai-laos restaurants in the local area.
The chicken curry was creamy, chicken tender and not over-cooked.
The ingredients in the duck salad salad were fresh, sauce was tart, tangy but also fish sauce salty and you can just taste just the right level of lemongrass.
The grilled chicken was a tad oily, but not excessively, maybe just a tad undercooked for me, but nothing serious. It came with lovely, tasty combination of sauces.
The quality and freshness is pretty good at Katin Thai, staff friendly and helpful – maybe to compensate for the out of the way location and its newness. You could do worse than Katin Thai (and I have). I think noodlies Sydney food blog will be coming back.
