We had always wanted to try this place but every time we planned a visit, we couldn’t get booked- a promising sign? Popularity usually means a restaurant has something interesting to offer- and when we were lucky enough to get a table recently, this little gem didn’t disappoint.
Bo Tree Kitchen serves up fantastically authentic Thai flavours , with a real street-food feel in its very busy restaurant.
It’s a bit off the beaten track, tucked away in the University area, but it’s well worth finding. The food is very reasonably priced and is of outstanding quality. We received knowledgeable guidance on the extensive menu choices from Helen at front of house and the spice heat can be tailored to your personal taste.
There are also excellent vegan & vegetarian options on the menu, as well as a daily specials board.
Bo Tree Kitchen is BYOB, charging £2 per bottle corkage.
Our party of four ordered the following dishes;
Grilled Prawn special
Tofu Tord with dipping sauce
Pad Phet Tao Hu- a stir-fried tofu dish
Som Tam salad
Kung Pad Thai with prawns
Gaeng Phet Pak- a vegetarian red curry
Gaeng Keo Wan – a green curry with prawns
Khao suay- jasmine rice
Khao ka ti- coconut rice
Khluay Thod – banana fritters
Those of you who read our restaurant reviews know that we don’t often give a five star rating, but this was a “no-brainer.”
We loved Bo Tree Kitchen, and will be planning a return visit very soon.
