WELCOME TO THAI EDGE RESTAURANTS
Arguably the best Thai restaurant chain in the UK, Thai edge is offering a world class restaurant in a unique setting
which complements Thai culture within modern oriental design.
Our Head chef Jeensanthai Mit (Taiman) has created the menu at Thai Edge which is a marriage of centuries old Oriental
and European in?uences harmoniously combined with a unique taste, full of colour and vibrancy where the high of the
fresh ingredients is never disguised.
At Thai Edge, we aim to provide the very best in Thai cuisine in a special contemporary Oriental setting, providing the
most exciting and memorable dining experience outside of Asia
Thai cuisine is popular for its subtle blending of ?avours, utilising herbs and roots such as lemon grass, basil, coriander,
galangal, krachai, ginger, garlic and chillies.
THERE ARE FOUR DIFFERENT TRADITIONAL STYLES OF THAI COOKING, EACH PREPARED,
COOKED AND PRESENTED IN PERFECT HARMONY WITH THE SURROUNDINGS.
NORTHERN CUISINE is rich and mild, making good use of coconut milk
and green curry.
NORTH-EASTERN CUISINE is spicy. Dried chillies feature in the red curry,
an in?uence of both Laos and Cambodia.
CENTRAL CUISINE for those with a mild palate, concentrates on the use of coconut,
lemon and basil leaves (in?uenced by the Chinese).
SOUTHERN CUISINE the spiciest food of all, in?uenced by Malaysia and India.
Thai cuisine has no strict rules about eating, and there are no set courses as in the West. All the dishes are served at
the same time, allowing everyone around the table to choose from a variety of ?avours and textures. Dishes are not
eaten in any particular order. The dishes should be as varied as possible-mild with spicy, grilled with soupy and ?sh
accompanying meat. The rule of thumb is the more variety the better. The absolute minimum is a soup and two main
dishes – with rice of course.
Rice is the essential component of any meal, and because of the effort Thai farmers put into growing it, it is regarded
with respect, not to be wasted – every last grain to be eaten.
NOT ALL THAI FOOD IS SPICY OR HOT, HOWEVER, WE HAVE INDICATED USING A CHILL RATING,
WHERE NECESSARY, HOW SPICY YOUR DISH WILL BE.
= Very spicy, = Moderately spicy, = Mildly spicy
We can adjust the spiciness of your food to suit all palates. Please ask your waitress or waiter.
Please note that many Thai dishes are prepared with peanuts, or contain nut products.
We have indicated with (V) those dishes suitable for vegetarians. Those dishes marked with (¥) can be adjusted by the
omission of one ingredient.

A street stall selling fried insects
Certain insects are also eaten in Thailand, especially in Isan and in the North. Many markets in Thailand feature stalls which sell deep-fried grasshoppers, crickets (ching rit, Thai: ????????), bee larvae, silkworm (non mai, Thai: ???????), ant eggs (khai mot, Thai: ?????) and termites. The culinary creativity even extends to naming: one tasty larva, which is also known under the name “bamboo worm” (non mai phai, Thai: ??????????, Omphisa fuscidentalis), is colloquially called “express train” (rot duan; Thai: ??????) due to its appearance.
Most of the insects taste fairly bland when deep-fried, somewhat like popcorn and prawns. But when deep-fried together with kaffir lime leaves, chilies and garlic, the insects become an excellent snack to go with a drink. In contrast to the bland taste of most of these insects, the maeng da or maelong da na (Thai: ????????, Lethocerus indicus) has been described as having a very penetrating taste, similar to that of a very ripe gorgonzola cheese. This giant water bug is famously used in a chili dip called nam phrik maengda. Some insects, such as ant eggs and silk worms, are also eaten boiled in a soup in Isan, or used in omelets in northern Thailand.
