About Maekhong Thai Restaurant
About the restaurant
The true name of the Mekong River, in Thailand and Laos, is ‘Mae Nam Khong’ – hence the curious rendering of the name of this Poole Thai restaurant in Upper Parkstone. Maekhong Thai Restaurant’s menu is as authentic as its name, with dishes like lamb shank massaman curry served on the bone and especially stir-fried seafood pad cha and stand up sea bass (the crispy whole fish literally stands up on its own tail) reminiscent of the riverine cuisine of Southeast Asia. Located on Albert Road, just off Ashley Road, the main drag to Bournemouth, Maekhong Thai is ideally suited to both towns’ diners.
