Spring Roll King on Rideau

Tried an order of the Panang curry with chicken last week from this place -- one of those late nights at work and didn't feel like cobbling together something from the fridge.

Very impressed. Fairly generous order (got 4 meals out of it for $10...but that's the miser instinct of a formerly penniless grad student. Probably should only stretch to 2, maybe 3, meals.) Nice flavouring, with every bite bringing a slightly different combination out. Good for spiciness level too -- bit of zing but again not so hot that the subtler flavours of coriander and lime leaves were lost.

Had an order of veg spring rolls too and happy to find that they were tasty, crisp but not greasy. At $1.20 each, good value.

Curious if anyone else has tried this place and what they had and thought, if so. They pride themselves on 3 kinds of cuisine -- Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese -- but Chinese and, to a lesser extent, Thai seemed to dominate the menu. And not an overly adventurous menu at that, but if my one order is any indication, may be a good reliable stop for conventional favourites.

Will try something meatless next time to report back
to you veggies! There's an eggplant curry on the menu that called to me.

In any case, within the takeout genre, makes a nice change from the ubiquitous shawarma.
