Chaophraya | Aberdeen

📍 1, Union Terrace, Aberdeen AB10 1NJ

After getting out of yet another lockdown, a local one this time, Chaophraya was my first stop. This restaurant is easily my favourite for Thai food in the city, just after Thaikun.

AMBIENCE:

Dark interior with a classic-modern feel. One design element I found interesting was the series of marble-finished greek columns. Favourite bit were the fairy lights, cause it made the experience somewhat magical.

Featured of course were various pieces of decorative pieces that further emphasised the ‘Thai-ness’ of the restaurant. These were Buddha statues, gongs and whatnot. Loved eet!

FOOD:

The food at Chaophraya never fails me. Been a while I was here, so it was good to try new stuff off the menu like the ‘Chicken Tacos’. Absolutely loved it.

Chicken Thai Tacos – £7.95

(red curried chicken finished with coconut milk and served over a lightly pan seared rice flour taco)

First time having these here and it was a total hit. Just wish they were bigger. I’m always a hungry girl.

Chicken Satay – £8.45

(chicken bamboo skewers, charcoal grilled and served with peanut sauce and Thai sweet relish)

My go-to cause of how juicy and flavourful it is. Dip this into the peanut sauce and it’s a match made in heaven.

Spicy Seafood Udon Noodles – £13.95

(mussels, prawns, scallop and squid with green beans, onions, chillies, mushrooms and hot basil)

Udon noodles for the win! Been a minute I had a seafood dish, and this was definitely calling out to me. Nothing really exciting about it though, just your regular seafood noodles.

Weeping Tiger Steak w Egg Fried Rice – £20.95

(21-day dry-aged sirloin steak served sliced on a sizzling platter with seasonal vegetables and black pepper sauce)

Fun presentation with this dish as it came through sizzling. Paired well with the rice and the sauce it came with.

Guava Colada – £6.35

I usually love coladas, so the idea of having guava in it intrigued me. It was definitely a hit!
