Nestled within the beautiful Coco Ocean Resort & Spa, the Courtyard Restaurant will soon become a haven for Thai food lovers. With fresh ocean breeze, shimmering pools and fountains, the Courtyard Restaurant is the perfect place to relish these delicacies.

Do you love Thai cuisine? Are you longing for its aromatic spices, vibrant colours, and explosive flavours? Then you're in luck because Coco Ocean has brought 2 Thai chefs who are ready to spice up your life with the flavours of Thailand!

As the sun goes down, the enchanting outdoor dining of Courtyard Restaurant transforms into a magical oasis, where colourful Thai dishes take centre stage, and you are enveloped by the enticing aromas of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal. The delicious variety of Thai cuisine and its world-acclaimed street food includes stir-fries and salads, curries and soups, and noodles and stir-fries. Spicy and bold, yet well-balanced, Thai food is recognisable from the first bite because of its
zesty, zingy flavours such as lemongrass, chilli, lime and mint and its herby, fresh aromatics, such as lemon basil, parsley and dill.

If you're new to Thai food, you might wonder what you should try first. To help you, here is a list of the most popular Thai dishes that you absolutely have to try-

  •  Pad Thai - Stir-fried noodles.
  •  Tom Yum Goong - Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup
  • Kaeng Lueang - Yellow Curry.
  •  Gaeng Daeng - Red Curry.
  •  Gaeng Keow Wan Gai - Green Curry
  •  Khao Soi - Thai Coconut Curry Noodle Soup
  •  Khao Pad - Thai Fried Rice.
  •  Laab - Spicy Salad.
  •  Khao Niao Mamuang - Mango Sticky Rice

The most famous Thai dishes are some of the healthiest Thai meal options, owing to the fantastic inclusion of vegetables. Also, Thai food is rarely deep-fried - in fact, most Thai dishes need to be steamed or pan-fried, the healthier cooking option. This also makes the taste of Thai food explosive and unique, which is one of the main reasons Thai food is so popular.

The culinary team, consisting of two talented Thai chefs, are masters in their craft and bring a wealth of experience and passion to create an authentic Thai experience for guests. Prepared with precision and finesse, the menu boasts an array of traditional Thai dishes that cater to both meat lovers and vegetarians and are a feast for the eyes and the palate. Each dish is a work of art, showcasing the skill and creativity of the chefs.

Whether you crave the fiery heat of a Tom Yum Goong soup, the delicate balance of flavours in a Pad Thai, a platter of vibrant green curry gracefully garnished with aromatic herbs or an awe-inspiring display of colourful Pad See Ew noodles sizzling in a wok, The Thai Restaurant aims to satisfy your Thai food cravings in the most captivating way.

Step into the Courtyard Restaurant at Coco Ocean Resort & Spa and embark on a culinary adventure to Thailand. Let the flavours transport you to the bustling streets of Bangkok and the beautiful beaches of Phuket, all within the serene surroundings of Coco Ocean's Thai cuisine.

And if you're new to Thai food, you're sure to find something on the menu that tickles your tastebuds, especially if you're a fan of other Asian foods.

The Thai Restaurant will be open to the public from the 15th of October, seven days a week, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
