51. I’ve read and heard so many good reports of the Thai restaurant The Golden Spoon that I decided to try it myself. The menu appeared to be all in Thai but then we noticed the English translations. When the waitress realised it was our first visit, she came across as she knew it would take us a long time to choose. In the end we ordered what she recommended because we didn’t know where to start – there was so much choice. Because it was early on a Monday evening (they are open from midday to midnight without a day off), it wasn’t too busy but it got busier later and in fact, they recommend that you book, even on Mondays.

The Golden Spoon offers a wide range of extremely tasty food, mostly quite spicy, but that was fine with me. Even the vegetarian among us had plenty of choice. Everything was cooked quickly and perfectly.

The first course looked rather small, but there were six more courses to follow and we couldn’t finish all of them.

The entrance to the restaurant is rather dark and the inside isn’t much better. The Thai family who run it (the father and grandfather do all the cooking) have been there since 1975 and haven’t really changed it since then. There are some Thai paintings on the wall which are probably rather beautiful but they are very dusty so it’s difficult to tell. But none of that is important because I didn’t go there to look at the walls. What I did look at was our meal being prepared in the kitchen, which is in one corner of the restaurant, and that was a wonderful sight. The meal cost more than I had expected but was worth it.

 

What is the writer trying to do?
