Barcham and I attempted to lunch today at the new cafe in Odgers Lane. But they were full. So we decided to take up a reader recommendation and try the new Sabai Dee which has taken up residence where the old Shalimar used to be.
Praise be on arrival they had a $8.50 lunch box deal with selections from the now obligatory bain marie.
The honey chicken was good, and not too gloopy, but is never going to be a standout. The pad thai noodles were solid.
But holy moly that green curry was something else.
Full of crisp and varied flavours. Better than all the green curry I’ve had in Thailand or elsewhere.
It really deserves better than to be coming out of a warmer for a cheap lunchbox.
While the place was empty for our visit (Hobart Place around the corner being a lovely spot to eat take away) the menu has some intriguing items on it. So I might have to take them for a dinner spin soon too.
A worthy entry in the annals of Canberra’s $10 lunch spots.
(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)
