Tomdang Thai Restaurant, Dulverton, Somerset
A small and idyllic market town like Dulverton may be the last place you’d expect to find somewhere like Tomdang Thai Restaurant, but here it is, in what used to be a row of 200 year old cottages on the high street.
The A La Carte menu is one of traditional Thai cuisine, with the likes of Gaeng Phed Kai (chicken breast in a creamy red curry sauce with coconut milk, young sliced coconut, aubergine, fine beans, bell peppers and bamboo shoots with a touch of Thai herbs), Gaeng Phed Ped Yang (duck breast, poached in Thai herbs and spices, sliced and served in a smooth red curry and coconut milk sauce, with pineapple, grapes, lychees, cherry tomatoes and Thai spices) and Phad Phed Gae (marinated diced tender lamb, stir-fried and served in an enjoyable fiery red curry paste sauce with fresh tender green peppercorns, wild ginger, peppers and fresh basil leaves).
At lunchtimes it’s a fusion of Thai and European with dishes like Seafood pie, Dolmades, Meaty pork spareribs, and Asian seabass. There are also 2 course set platter lunches and they run a takeaway service - but it’s better to eat in for the unique atmosphere and experience. Inside, there’s a bar and two dining rooms, both seating up to 20. Outside there’s a decking area where an old grape vine clambers through the arbour, hung with twinkly lights, a good place to be on a balmy summers evening
