Towards the river end of Bulimba's Oxford Street (past the main cluster of restaurants and cafes) stands local favourite Thai Legend. Not a fine dining or even a family dining establishment, Thai Legend is strictly a takeaway affair, and their prices reflect this. The most expensive dish on the menu is $18, and there is also a page-long list of budget items ranging from $6.70 to $12.50.
When it comes to the food itself, do not underestimate this modest suburban takeaway shop. Staples like pad Thai, tom yum goong, red duck curry, jungle curry and coconut rice are first rate but the entrees are in a different league altogether.
All of the entrees at Thai Legend (curry puffs, steamed sago balls, tod mun pla and more) are excellent, but the stuffed eggplant (eggplant stuffed with minced chicken and herbs, crumbed and fried) must be tasted to be believed. Though this dish takes a little longer to prepare, it is very generously portioned and exceptionally delicious.
A restaurant with no dine-in option may discourage those who live far away, but if you find the time to stop by, it's unlikely you'll be disappointed.
