Michelle and I had heard good things about the Thai Seasons Cafe in Aberdeen and last week we headed there for lunch to sample the food. The cafe is both a coffee shop serving traditional coffee shop fayre of coffee and cake, however it doubles as a Thai restaurant. We are both avid lovers of Thai food and all things spicy so it was the lunch menu we were interested in. There were a number of Thai dishes available and as neither of us could decide what to have we opted for their banquet plate which included Penang Chicken curry, black pepper stir-fry pork with spicy dip, carrot salad with a seriously good kick of chill and steamed jasmine rice. Wow, we were not disappointed as the food was fabulous! Freshly cooked to order, beautifully presented and with a perfect balance of spice, sweet, sour and salt. Our plate of food cost £9.50, which given all we got we though was fantastic value for less than £10! Other main courses retailed around £6.50. We would also like to mention the warm welcome we received on arrival and the friendly service that continued throughout the meal. Cannot recommend this place enough, if you like Thai food, cooked to perfection and without a hefty price tag then give the cafe a go.
There are times when you walk away from a place just knowing that you’ve found somewhere really good, this is the case with the Thai Seasons Cafe, what a fantastic find. The cafe is currently open 10am-4pm Wednesday to Friday and 10am-5pm on a Saturday. The cafe itself is located on the old Dobbies site on Hazledene Road, you head through the Somebody Cares Retail Centre building and the restaurant is located in a building at the back.
This review is based on our own experiences of eating at the Thai Seasons cafe, for a meal that we paid for ourselves. The views expressed are entirely our own and we were not paid to undertake this review.
