I’ll be blunt. Other than the novelty of eating your meal while simultaneously stretching your hip flexors on floor cushions, I can’t think of much else to commend about Patee Thai. The restaurant was decked out in every Thai cliché I could think of (lots of temple references) and the food was bland, anglo-fied Thai food. Our curries looked and tasted like they’d been assembled using the following instructions: beef red curry = beef + ladle of sauce from red vat, chicken green curry = chicken + ladle of sauce from green vat. It was telling that not a single patron was Thai.
NOT: Patee Thai, 371-373 Brunswick St, Fitzroy
