Widnes is an awfully long way from Thailand, but there is an increasingly large number of people who have made it over to South East Asian from the North West of England, and plenty of them have come back to Blighty with a taste for Thai food. The local outpost for Asian cuisine is Arroy Thai Restaurant on Widnes, where they offer up an authentic taste of Thailand, with a menu that takes in all the spice, the balance of flavours and the freshness of ingredients that make the food of Bangkok so beloved. Book a table now and find out for yourself.
We have dined at the Arroy Thai restaurant once or twice before, and have never been served anything but delicious dishes, beautifully presented by staff who are pleasant, helpful and really seem to like being there as much as we do. No matter what they do with their seafood, it is always gorgeous 'in your mouth' and their sharing platter starter is a good variety of lovely tastes. Nothing is too much trouble. We asked for chopsticks and rice bowls...no problem, they just appeared almost like they were waiting to be asked. I would recommend that if there are two diners, order two different dishes and share...then you get an authentic Thai experience and a chance to sample more of their excellent cuisine. No, it is not cheap eats, but worth every penny
Very friendly and welcoming both in the décor and the staff.Food was freshly prepared and taste was second to none. Would highly recommend to everyone who enjoys fresh and very tasty Thai cuisine
There is a special magic to Thai cuisine: a delicate balance of elements that takes in big, broad flavours, which must be levelled out to create that unique taste. Salt comes from fish and oyster sauce, sweetness from palm sugar; sourness from tamarind and citrus fruits and spice from the ubiquitous use of chillies. At Arroy Thai Restaurant on Widnes Road in Widnes town centre, they keep these powerful flavours in the their with ease, and what results is a superb standard of Thai dishes.
Take a look at the menu down at Arroy Thai for a few examples. Tom Kha soup is a sweet and sour delight, whereas the Thai red curry is packed chillies and fresh ingredients. House specials on this stretch of Widnes Road include crispy stir-fried duck, garnished with the iconic Thai Basil leaves, and grilled sirloin steak with Thai herb dressing. Take a trip into Widnes town centre, but be taken away to Chiang Mai or Bangkok: just remember to reserve yourself a seat at the top table beforehand.
