I was very pleased to hear on the grapevine that Thai at the Travellers in Holmesfield has been re-incarnated, as Thai Traveller in Abbeydale. It’s the same head chef and a very similar menu – although I confess I haven’t studied it, I just went for one of the usuals! This time the setting is a much smaller bistro on Hutcliffe Wood Road, just off Abbey Lane near Beauchief. Hopefully a much better location for passing trade.
This has come as a very pleasant surprise, following the closure of Thai at the Travellers earlier this year and then the loss of Hui Wei. Little in th way of oriental food to be had unless I made it myself!
So we ordered a takeaway – some Thai fishcakes for a starter, followed by chicken Pad Thai and a red chicken Thai curry, with some steamed rice. I know there are very limited options on starters, but all of the curries are made gluten free, and probably some of the other stir fries can be. A conversation with the staff is definitely important, as I think they modify some of the recipes – certainly the Pad Thai.
The takeaway lived up to my expectations and was as if it had never been away. Look forward to a Massaman next time…
