My local Thai restaurant is quite good, so I dont have to travel far when I want a quick Thai food fix. Absolute Thai at the Westfield in Hornsby serves delicious food. The people are friendly and I can always get a table any time! So there really isnt a need for me to go anywhere else unless I am meeting up with friends.
The tomyam was sourish, spicy and hot and I loved every bit of it. They were quite generous with the prawns as well. The prawns were plump and juicy. I could gobble this up in a minute!!

The pad kee mow (flat noodles with chicken, bamboo shoots and vegetables) was so yummy. The flavours were great. Generous amount of ingredients. I prefer this dish to Pad Thai because it has more ingredients and less boring if I am eating this plate on my own. It's also quite spicy. The only thing that can be improved is the "wet-ness". If only the noodles were slightly dryer from the stir-fying. Do I make sense? LOL

And the soft shell crab was to die for!! It was well fried. Not oily at all. Light and crispy. Every bite was heavenly! And interestingly, the soft shell crab was served with a tomyam soup kind of sauce (with mushrooms). Oh dunking the soft shell crab into the tomyam sauce is such a great idea to give this dish a tangy spicy twist. Love it! Brilliant!!!

And no meal of mine would be complete without dessert. The coconut sticky rice was warm and complemented the cold coconut ice cream and jackfruit slices so well. It was like a warm cold dance in the mouth..so smooth with the coconut cream as well. This is a must have!!

So if you live around the area or just happen to be around the area and looking for food, try this place. Good value for great food.
