A Thai colleague told me about this restaurant in Frankfurt. I gave it a try and I was hooked from the first bite. It is so popular that there are always customers waiting at the door. But the maximum we ever had to wait was 20 mins. That also says a lot about the speed at which you are seated, your orders are taken and then served. The service is super super quick and it almost feels like fast food but in fact, the food is of top-notch quality and authentic as approved by the Thai colleague and others who have lived in Thailand. In fact, the ingredients, vegetables and herbs, are as Thai as they can get too. “You wouldn’t find these ingredients in the supermarket or Asian stores”, said my colleague.
My favorite dishes are the som tam (green papaya salad), the tom yam gai (chicken lemongrass soup) and Pad Gra Paoo Hmuu, spicy minced pork with vegetables. In the summer, you cannot miss the mango with sticky rice, it’s the best dessert ever! To accompany the meals, you have Thai beer – Singha or Thai iced tea along with other regular non-alcoholic beverages. This is my must-go-here-once-a-week restaurant! And I am not the only one! I once met a couple, seated at the next table, who said they have been visiting Aroydee once a week since it opened too!
