Khao Soi

noodle curry from chiang mai

Khao Soi

(kow-soi)

Our speciality dish – Khao Soi is a famous chicken noodle dish from Chiang Mai in northern Thailand.

Chicken thighs and drumsticks are cooked in a coconut-rich yellow curry.

Egg noodles are added along with pickled mustard greens, red onion, shallots, dried chillis and then topped with crispy, yellow egg noodles.

This dish, traditionally associated with Chiang Mai, also has its origins from Laos and Myanmar just over the border.

In fact, it is traditionally thought to have been introduced into Thailand from what was then Burma.

We introduced it into Kendal last year at our cafe and it proved to be so popular that we are happy to permanently add this fantastic curry to our takeaway menu.

The contrasting flavours of the pickled mustard greens with the sweetness of the yellow curry and egg noodles create a distinctive and memorable taste.

What People are Saying

“Great menu with a wide range of dishes. Food is fresh and prepared quickly so no long wait times as with many other restaurants. Lovely friendly staff and the little drive through area is charmingly cute.” Amy

“I turned up as I was working away, the man said it would be an hour wait and then texted me a sooner time as I asked if it was possible. The food was unreal, exactly like Thailand. Excellent service.​” Jordan

“Food was so fresh and tasty with good portions no faults whatsoever. You might look at the prices and think it’s expensive for a takeaway but you get what you pay for. 

Wagga mammas is one of my favourite restaurants but ain’t a scratch on this place”

“Great meal, full of flavour and freshly prepared. Would highly recommend. Went for the Box to go, pad thai, pad pet moo (which was incredible) and a thai green curry. Will be back again when I’m in the Kendal area again!”
