For those more interested in feeding their bellies, the food is also very tasty and well presented. We started off with the refreshing butterfly pea lime tea which is served in a fabulous silver cauldron to set off the brilliant purple hue.
Next up, we moved on to the appetiser platter, a mixture of pineapple chicken wings, sugar cane prawns, satay beef, fish cakes and chicken rolls. These are all your quintessential Thai snacks, and seemed to hit the spot with everybody around the table.
A real standout dish for the whole group was the watermelon salad. A mixture of watermelon balls, dragonfruit and salted plum powder, it’s a light and tasty salad that makes a welcome contrast to the fried dishes.
The crabmeat and pineapple fried rice was really flavourful and made with fresh crab meat. The grilled pineapple on the side made for a nice addition. Made with prawns and fresh vegetables, the phad Thai was almost as good as the ones you get in Thailand, but we did have to ask for more lime to up the sour flavours slightly.
And we have to mention the fabulous desserts too. While we are a crew who would usually opt for savoury over sweet, the two options that we tried from the dessert menu were both phenomenal. The Thai milk tea panna cotta was exactly as suggested, and kind of blew our minds with the fact it tasted exactly like the milk tea that Thailand is so well known for, and the peanut parfait with caramelised popcorn was sweet and heavenly with loads of crunch thanks to the beautiful popcorn.
Though often when restaurants try to make their dishes very Instagram friendly they fail to deliver in the taste department, at Atum Champak Restaurant this isn’t the case. We’ll definitely be back!
