Urban Thai Bistro has happy hour from 3 – 6 pm and 9 – 10 pm. $4 drinks, $6 appetizers, and $8 salads. Since Summer is coming very soon, what better way to celebrate than happy hour after work. We invited to try all their happy hour items.
The interior has lots of space for small to large groups. They also have a patio. There are a few ornate statues inside and gives this restaurant a modern Thai look and feel.
Thai Iced Tea is a must here. The unique taste of the tea with milk and added sweetness. It’s very addictive.
Thai Iced Coffee is on the menu as well. This was really creamy and sweet, which I didn’t like too much. I would have liked a bit more coffee intensity in this.
Royal Thai is another popular beverage. It is a mix of fresh coconut milk and lychee.
Fish Cakes comes with 6 pieces topped with onion, cucumber, sweet chili and a fried basil leaf.
Vegetarian Spring Roll are deep-fried to a golden brown colour. There is a sweet chili sauce on the side.
Urban Thai Shrimp Balls were good to munch on with some beer. It comes with 6 pieces, so its good for groups to share.
Wings comes in 3 different flavours – red curry, chili basil and sweet & Sour.
A good combination of sauces and wings. Recommended for happy hour with beer.
Thai BBQ Chicken was good with a nice char on the outside.
Thai BBQ Pork was really good and comes with many slices.
Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce was ok, but a bit on the dry side.
Calamari with crispy batter and a sweet chili sauce. All shaped like rings.
Crispy Fish with homemade sauce was good when it’s fresh out of the fryer.
Spicy Beef BBQ sits in a lettuce cup. The slices were thin but not very spicy.
Spicy Thai Prawns Salad was not that great. The prawns didn’t seem that fresh.
Chicken Lettuce Wrap is always a fun dish to have at the table and get interactive with your food. The crisp wrap with the savoury filling.
Som Tum Papaya Salad was ok.
Overall, some items were hit and miss but anything deep fried with drinks can’t go wrong. They have a lot of options of the happy hour menu.
