What should I get from the Thai takeaway?

We have a lovely thai restaurant near us but we always have the same thing - DH: beef massaman and jasmine rice, me: chicken sate and special fried rice.

DH is not a fan of lots of veg and doesnt like chilli/spice.

I like medium spice and happy with veg or not.

Please give me some recommendations of new things to try!

Pad thai! Amazing, not sure if it's many veggies or not though

I always get Tom Kha Gai but it’s usually quite spicy.

Otherwise prawn red curry with coconut rice.

Satay sticks with peanut sauce, Thai red duck curry.

If he doesn't like spice then Pad Thai is good, or you can ask them for a milder yellow curry

I love black pepper chicken. It's not usually too hot - I don't like a lot of heat. Garlic fried fish is gorgeous too. If DH likes massaman then branching out to one of the other curries could work.

For starters Thai fish cakes are quite different to most other things I've tried.

Do they do the incredible carrot and peanut salad? I love that. Also papaya salad.

Salt and pepper squid is amazing, as is chicken with chilli and Thai basil.

Post the menu Grin one of my favourite activities is selecting fantasy meals... well, when I’m bored anyway!

Chicken green curry is my favourite

Thanks everyone for your ideas.

I've gone for a red curry and DH is trying pad thai.
Duck spring rolls and thai crackers too of course Wink

For future reference I love duck in a tamarind sauce. I don't know the Thai name for it but it is so good.

Love a red curry. Damn I want a Thai now.

Jungle curry (gaeng pah) is the best, but might be a bit spicy for your tastes!
