Located amongst the hustle and bustle of inner-Sydney's Sussex Street, Home Thai is the type of Thai restaurant with an electric energy, deliciously fresh meals and friendly service that all makes you feel like you might not be in Sydney at all, — rather on holidays in Bangkok, feasting on an authentic Thai feast. The place is easy to find; just look for the queue forming out the front and take your place. But don't worry, with a main dining room adjoining the open planned kitchen as well as a mezzanine above, the turnover here is pretty quick and you won't be waiting long.

The fare is authentic Thai, with entrees including classics such as prawn cakes, curry puffs and spring rolls, and more adventurous offerings including pandan leaf chicken and Thai style chicken wings. The satay chicken wings are bangers while the grilled pork neck is perfectly succulent and juicy.

To compliment the mains, the team suggest choosing one of the many special salads. The soft shell crab and papaya salad is both sweet and spicy while the som tum salty crab with anchovy is — you guessed it — as salty and moorish as it gets.

If you're after a curry, opt for the classic massaman beef which will melt in your mouth or the tom yum seafood in coconut broth with king prawns and mussels. The red and green curries are two spicy options to satisfy the heat seekers as well.

For a main, give some thought to the crispy pork belly in chilli basil with a side of egg fried rice or Home Thai's pad thai — that is just about the best in Sydney.
