Proprietor Goya Griffiths has assembled an expert team of Thai chefs and front of house personnel to fashion a Thai bistro that boasts superior service and exceptional Thai food. With an emphasis on northern Thai specialties, Goya Thai Bistro is a standout in Merseyside and the region around St Helens and Warrington. Many of the dishes on offer at this Newton-le-Willows restaurant are prepared according to family recipes. The gai tod khun yai, for example is a signature starter that originated with the chef’s grandmother, consisting of golden, crispy deep-fried chicken wings with lemongrass and served with sweet chilli sauce, while the gaeng khow soi gai is a classic northern Thai yellow chicken curry .
Goya Thai Bistro is generous and flexible enough to be able to cater to many of its customers’ different dietary requirements. There’s a dedicated gluten-free menu that runs the gamut from starters through to main courses and curries, while vegetarian dishes feature heavily as well. Starters like the som tum papaya salad, the hot and sour tom yum po tag jay soup, and the pan-fried rice noodles in tamarind sauce with tofu, fresh bean sprouts, egg and spring onion served with peanuts, crushed chillies and lime are keeping Newton-le-Willows vegetarian diners – and Southeast Asian food fans in general – more than happy. Find Goya Thai Bistro up on the High Street, not far from the station (and therefore not much of a trek for Warrington residents).
