A Thai Birthday Dinner @ The Old Siam, Hertford

Ellen’s birthday. Yes, I can crack out my spangly jacket again and double yes we are dining at the beaut Thai we had last year.

First things first, we all headed over to the local charity gathering to sing a few carols and get in the festive mood. One very large red wine later and we were in The Old Siam ready for feasting.

It’s a sweet traditional place, which gets very busy, just in Herford town centre. We managed to squeeze in at 6pm and wasted no time in getting some starters.

We got a few mixed platters to share. The prawn toast and and nutty chicken satay were particularly tasty.

The CPs love a good sharing table which is great for me, i get to try a bit of everything. First up, a Thai red chicken curry. So so creamy with just the right amount of heat.

A chicken pad Thai and gigantic bowl of steamed rice.

A great choice made by me, sizzling honey duck. It was super sweet with a gorgeous crispy skin and chunky pink meat.

More chicken, this time is a nutty sauce with red chilli and a swirl of coconut cream- delish.

Another pad Thai with big juicy prawns to share. They love the crushed nuts on the side here!

A Thai green curry was our final main. this was fairly small for the price, but tasted amazing. The creamy spicy sauce was a great texture and it was kept warm on its own heater, very cute.

I didn’t get a pic of baby Daisy loving here own gourmet plate of satay chicken, quite the sight.

It was a lush eve at The Old Siam, although it was quite a quick turn around, the dishes are lovely and are not bad value (always the wine which bumps up the bill!) Naughty boozers.

So we wrapped back up and headed over to the house for more fizz and presents. More birthdays please.
