Top Thai Beach is a beachside extension to the popular and highly respected Top Thai restaurant in the busy Centro Plaza commercial centre in Nueva Andalucía. Situated in the luxurious Laguna Village commercial centre, Top Thai Beach offers indoor and al fresco dining on a large terrace near the beautiful Puro Beach pool, surrounded by palm trees and small winding canals.
The chef is originally from Thailand and has been working for Top Thai for 15 years. His passion for cooking is obvious when you meet him. When asked which is his signature dish, he simply replies, “All of them!”
We were treated to a vast array of different delights from beef satay, tempura prawns, spring rolls and fresh Vietnamese rolls to duck in a red curry with lychees and de-boned chunky pieces of fish cooked in a tangy sauce and intriguingly served within its own curved body.
All the dishes were beautifully presented with plenty of colour and textures. The flavours were well-balanced and true to authentic Thai cooking. The restaurant has an open kitchen where you can observe the chef at work, cooking everything from scratch and thus ensuring the utmost in freshness.
The service was efficient and the waiters, extremely friendly. We visited in the middle of February and it was impressively busy then – a testament to its already solid reputation.
