Malta Restaurant Review – Saturday 27th February 2016

We to the Chang Thai restaurant for dinner for the second time. Unfortunately it wasn’t great on this occasion. We had the mixed starters. The fried items were hot but the rest, including the satay and prawn ball, were cold. My main dish of crispy beef was cold, as was the rice, so we sent it back. LW’s Massiman curry was pretty good, if a bit too sweet. The beef when it came back was hot but it was chewy. They didn’t charge for the beef. All in all disappointing but it still has positives going for it and our previous visit was very good so we will give it another chance.

Malta Restaurant Review – Saturday 30th January 2016

This is a recently opened Thai restaurant on Tourists Street in Bugibba. Like a Tardis, it is deceptively large inside. On entering, there is an attractive bar area. The main dining room leads off to the right, there is a private dining area to the left and another dining area to the rear in front of the kitchens. Throughout it is welcoming, warm and interestingly decorated.

The seating is spread out over all sorts of nooks and crannies with booths and open tables, traditional seating and the floor level seating that only makes sense if your knees are less than 30 years old. The service was excellent and friendly and the food very good and we will certainly be going back very soon.

The menu is quite extensive with a good range of starters, salads, soups and mains and is bound to include your Thai favourites. LW and I started with mixed starters including satay chicken, a lemon grass scented fish cake, a monkey bag (wonton) and home-made sausages. For mains we had duck with tamarind sauce and chicken green curry served with jasmine rice.

The Chang Thai is a cut above other Asian restaurants we have visited in Malta. The food cost €45 which we thought was good value given the great ambience, service and delicious food.
