Not a fusion restaurant in the truest sense of the word, The Hungary Thai serves Hungarian and Thai dishes in side-by-side combos for the quirkiest of cravings. Goulash and pad Thai? Schnitzel and lemongrass soup? Why not? One of the restaurant’s most popular dishes is the Hungary Thai combo – cabbage rolls, wiener schnitzel and pad Thai.
The restaurant is fully licensed and its intimate patio makes it the perfect place for summer drinks and people-watching. It only seats 15 though, so be sure to arrive early if you want to secure a seat on a Friday night. In keeping with its eclectic cultural menu of mouthwatering mix n’ matches, The Hungary Thai has a handful of beer on tap including Guiness, Steela and Heineken.
The interior of the establishment isn’t much bigger than its patio, with a capacity of 35, but it’s full of character. The decor makes you feel like an expat in an illicit café somewhere in Eastern Europe. The corners are full of plants, their limbs drip with tiny twinkle lights, and the walls have been transformed into a dark and ambient jungle.
