Charlie's Salathai Restaurant

I haven't been to Charlie's Salathai Restaurant (Shop 5 Reed Street, Greenway) ever since they've moved to this new location. The restaurant now has burgundy-painted walls with a few statues of elephants and a few pots of plants (fake ones, i believe?!). This little restaurant has previously won many awards - as you will most definately see as you walk in the restaurant -  for being the best Thai restaurant in the ACT region. I was there for lunch and we ordered a Gang Mussamun (Tender Beef Chunks in Mussanum Curry with potatoes) and a Pad Tao Hoo Bi Gaprao (Stir Fried Tofu, Garlic, Chilli, Basil & Vegetables) accompanied by steamed white rice. Overall the food and the service was pleasant but the size of the dishes were rather small and expensive. I was a bit impressed with the fact that they only had one waitress taking orders and bringing out the dishes to the tables.
Steamed Rice served in a pretty bowl
Gang Mussamun was nice with soft and tender beef cubes, the only downside was that it did not contain much beef.

The veggies were alright, nothing wow...don't get me wrong, i love veggies but i think i usually order them out of habit. It's one of those habits that you unconsciously develop  when you eat out with your parents since you were a child. "Remember kids, we have to always eat veggies in every single meal" - my mum would say.
