I hadn't planned on doing anything for my birthday but the day before, I had a change of heart and decided that a impromptu meal at Ploy Thai could be fun.
The restaurant is tiny and it can often be hard to get a booking. Thankfully luck was on my side and I was able to snag a table for 6. I was even luckier to be able to recruit good friends to fill those places.
We started with an order of spring rolls. I'm not sure if the spring rolls are made in-house but they've very big and were devoured by some very hungry diners.
We ordered my favourite Pad Thai. I forgot to take a photo but rest assured it was delicious and did not disappoint. I'm not a fan of sweet Pad Thai or excessive bean sprouts and Ploy Thai avoids both of these. The portion is very generous and made its way around the table twice.
The Green Chicken Curry had a spicy bite which scared some of my diners. The meat to sauce ratio was generous. I didn't like the pieces of carrot and a piece of tomato, although I think the tomato was there for garnish and should've been removed.

Note: I'm pretty sure the menu on Urbanspoon is outdated and prices have risen slightly since posted in 2010. The stirfry and curries are about $15 and Pad Thai about $14.
