Kanok Thai Restaurant
From the moment you see Kanok Thai’s Kermit-green frontage, you’ll crack a smile. Inside, there are cream walls, kitsch floral table runners, and it’s a generally low-key casual set-up. The crack-a-grin joy here is provided by what’s on your table. You can expect excellent Thai dining with sweet pineapple rice, spicy kee mow, and a Pantone-worthy colour show of luminous orange sauces, courtesy of the must-order tom yum and pa-neang curry. Also, the affordable prices and its location on Preston Street make it the ideal spot for a stop-off lunch between Brighton Station and the beach. Don’t skip the Thai spicy sausage or the milk tea.
