Since reading Melbourne gastronome‘s review of Middle Fish Thai in Carlton I have been plotting a visit. I went on a recent weekday for lunch and was lucky to get the last of the small barrel tables. Behind me, several groups of four queued for larger tables. Middle Fish is so popular right now.
I enjoyed the Pad kha-na moo kob more than They call me Maggie, who notes that this dish is very similar to the Pad gapao moo kob that Ms I-Hua also found very salty. Mine wasn’t overly salty and was delicious.
Where’s the beef is unconvinced by the vegetarian options, though it notes that the menu has been revised to offer more vegetarian choices, and Temasek68 also has doubts about the quality of the food. Peach water, Lets get fat together and The very very hungry caterpillar are more positive.
Sampling only one dish is not an effective way to judge the menu. I need to return with a group so I can taste more widely. The service was good despite the busyness and from a quick glance the accessibility is also good, with a wide flat entrance and a variety of tables and seating spaces.
