Day out with lunch
Have been to restuarant a number of times. Staff always happy to talk about dishes and give recommendations. Used 40% off offer. Great added bonus. Will certainly be back
But will stick with city centre (Chaophraya) for the surroundings
Casual Thai dining in Silverburn
Pronounced ‘tycoon’, the Thaikhun in Glasgow’s Silverburn Centre is a casual Thai restaurant from the owners of Chaophraya Thai Restaurant group. Decked out with diverse Thai bric-a-brac and featuring open kitchens, Thaikhun is designed to feel like a bustling Bangkok street restaurant.
Authentic Thai street food
The street vendors of Thailand are famous for their quick, affordable and flavour-packed dishes. Thaikhun aims to bring those flavours to Scotland. This might mean a simple starter of crispy salt and pepper squid or a main course comprising a grilled half chicken marinated in a secret sauce and served raw papaya salad, pork scratchings and sticky rice.
Classic Thai soups, salads and stir fries are prominent as are the green, red and massaman curries. The menu also has a regional specialities selection. Taken from the eastern region of Thailand, the pla samun prai is a whole, deep fried bream with a tangy salad of red onions, lime, lemongrass, palm sugar, fish sauce and ginger, topped with peanuts, red chilli and fresh coriander. Still feel as though you are in Barrhead?
