Yesterday evening we visited Nottingham with the purpose of reviewing the Kids Menu at Thaikhun
I took along my friend Tracey and our 4 children, my family are all veggie and hers are not. My kids are fussy eaters and hers are not (can you see why we invited them!)
Thaikhun (pronounced tycoon) is casual dining at it’s most funky:
(Their) vision and passion is to bring authentic Thai street food from the streets of Bangkok to the streets of the UK!
The decor is so cool and it is such a fun venue to explore I wanted to just keep on snapping!
We had lovely service from our waitress Hannah who was attentive and really knew all about the food which helped a lot.
The children’s menu was simple and fun and they even got to try some real insects. My veggie kids shrieked behind their menus at this!
They had veggie stick starters, mango juice (from a wide selection of juices) and then it was time to decide on their mains. For the less adventurous kids the fact the 3 choices come separately means they can try just little bits without being overwhelmed by new tastes. There is a choice of sauces, meat and veg and rice or noodles.
The kids gave their meals a big thumbs up and ate well. Mine hadn’t tried noodles before and they were a big hit!
For pudding they got a mini milk which they traded with Tracy and I for our chocolate fondue…the things you do for your kids. I wish the pudding had been a bit more authentically Thai and fresh, rather than a mini milk lolly- maybe a choice of ice creams?
But really everything else was peachy perfect.
Tracy and I ate from the adult menu and we had corn fritter starters which were just lovely. We also both had Phad Thai, she had prawn and I had tofu and our meals were absolutely scrumptious (and I forgot to take a photo of them because I was so busy eating – oops!)
Would I recommend Thaikhun as a place to take kids?
Yes I would indeed, the Kids Menu at Thaikhun is great As a venue it is casual, interesting, fun and straightforward. Our kids were very lively and the staff were very relaxed, it is spacious and the food is tasty.
A really family friendly dining experience.
You can find a Thaikhun restaurant in the following cities:
Khop Khun Kha Thaikhun – we had a lovely time (thank you)
P.S I always think it si a good idea to print off and take some activity sheets with you too when eating out to keep kids chilled. You can find some brilliant free printables here.
