Slightly over a week ago, it was my parents' 34th anniversary. To celebrate, they treated us to dinner at my restaurant of choice, Paradise Road, Glen Waverley. Come to think of it, we got that all mixed up, didn't we? Them treating us on their anniversary, and me picking the place? Oh well, that's just how we roll!
When we arrived at 7pm that Friday night the place was already jam packed with people, but luckily we had a booking. A lot of the items on the menu looked very appetising, and after deliberating for a while we managed to narrow down our choices.
We also ordered steamed barramundi fillets seasoned with garlic, coriander and lots of lemon. Most of us thought it was too sour, but I really liked it because it packed a punch! The fish was fresh and wasn't over or underdone.
I also ordered dessert, which was water chestnuts, jackfruit and lychee in ice coconut syrup. It sounded great but unfortunately did not taste as much. It was refreshing to have water chestnuts and jackfruit used in the dessert but the syrup tasted like it was half chilled and came out of a can.
On the whole, it was a decent meal but the dishes were hit and miss. We probably won't be coming back again, which is sad because it means I am still on the search for a Thai restaurant I really love!
