THAI RESTAURANT LIMASSOL
THAI RESTAURANT REVIEW BY ANNA-MARIA ATHANASIOU
Thai Restaurant Limassol – I have dined many times at the St Raphael Hotel, so it was with eager anticipation that I waited for the opening of their new Thai restaurant, Golden Monkey. It is situated in the newly built luxury hotel apartment condo of The Tower at the St Raphael Resort and Marina in Limassol.
Thai Head Chef Nuntthawut Poungpouw and his culinary team from Thailand have designed and perfected a rich menu, combining the aromatic flavours of the Far East.
I was lucky to experience dining at the Golden Monkey along with nine other friends. This meant we could sample a wide selection from the menu, sharing the various beautifully presented dishes. Our starters comprised of the Crab Meat Lump Salad and Papaya Salad; both were fresh and tasty with a bit of spice. The Satay Chicken was tender and aromatic, and the Shrimp Spring Rolls were deliciously crispy. We opted for steamed rice to accompany our main dishes, which was served in a huge bamboo basket. The showstopper of our meal was the Steamed Whole Sea Bass served with spicy chilli, which complemented our Prawn Red Thai Curry and Chicken Green Thai Curry. Each dish was beautifully presented, and the flavours were as authentic and vibrant as the traditional ambience, Thai architecture and handcrafted artworks found in the restaurant. The dessert menu continued to wow all of us, and though we were all full, we opted for the rich Fried Banana and Honeycomb, and the light Homemade Thai Ice Cream. Both were mouth-watering.
THE DRINKS & WINE LIST
The Golden Monkey has an extensive wine menu of both local and wines from around the world, as well as top-shelf Champagnes and spirits. However, we opted to try some of their signature cocktails, all presented with dramatic flair, particularly the Spicy Thai, Lychee and Golden Monkey, making our dining experience feel more like a stylish event.
As with every restaurant at the St Raphael Resort and Marina, the service is second to none. All the staff were very welcoming yet professional and knowledgeable of the menu and cocktails. This proved to be helpful as a few of us were not familiar with the dishes or the exceptional cocktails on offer.
The Golden Monkey is not just a Thai Restaurant; it is a complete experience, from the moment you walk in, until the minute you reluctantly say goodbye. The impressive outside terrace overlooks the Mediterranean, and the Thai-inspired décor is spectacular, which adds to the whole dining experience. I’m looking forward to immersing myself again in all things Thai very soon!
THE SIGNATURE DISHES: Golden Monkey Platter, Steamed Whole Sea Bass and Grilled Duck Breast.
