    Happy Songkran!
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | April 3, 2018
    As you probably know, Thailand is a Buddhist country, with only a tiny 1% being Christian. Easter isn’t ignored though and you will certainly find gifts and eggs in the bigger stores (and even the odd Easter bunny hopping around!). However, Easter in Thailand often falls around one of our own favourite festivals - Songkran, which is our Thai New Year! April is the hottest month of the year in Thailand, and Songkran is often seen as a great excuse to go completely mad and have lots of fun! We have huge water fights and street parties that often go on all week! Most places close down for Songkran and the larger cities empty as everyone travels home. Songkran is the festival for family reunions, temple visits and annual house cleaning. Many Thais observe the holidays by spending time with families and friends and by performing religious rites such as ‘Bathing the Buddha image’. Buddhists pour fragrant water over Buddha statues both at the temple and at home. The more religious will perform similar celebrations the whole festival. Untitled

    Thai cuisine is one of the healthiest foods you can eat.

Chillies  Chillies are filled with vitamin A and vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system. Some studies suggest that eating chillies also helps you sleep better, keeps your heart healthy, and help you feel fuller for longer – no snacking needed after a delicious Thai curry! Coconut Milk Coconut milk sometimes gets a bad press but it is in fact extremely healthy. Yes it’s full of fats and oils but they are good and not bad fats.

    Mother’s Day Thai Style
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | February 27, 2018
    b45c976b8c1fc28d75c0c8f01a82b055 Mother’s Day in Thailand is doubly special. It is celebrated on the Queen’s birthday, August 12th and everyone has a day off to celebrate properly! On the day before the event, schools in Thailand typically host a Mother’s Day ceremony. Students spend weeks beforehand rehearsing performances and dances. Mothers come to see the shows, and are then treated to their children kneeling before them to thank them for all that they do – and it’s not uncommon for all parties involved to shed a few tears! In the morning of Mother’s Day itself, ceremonies are held to give offerings of food and other alms to Thailand’s saffron-robed Buddhist monks. Prayers and various devotions are offered up for mothers (and the Queen, who is considered to be the mother of the land) The traditional Mother’s Day gift in Thailand is jasmine. This delicate white flower is imbued with a sweet perfumed fragrance. Called “dok mali” in Thai, jasmine is used in ...

    Celebrate In Style At Thai Terre
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | December 11, 2017
    image The end of a year – whether it’s been great or could have been better – is always cause for celebration. But where to celebrate? At home? You could… but do you really want the hassle of preparing all the food and drink and then having to tidy everything up afterwards? Although some people love to host a party, for others it generally means they can’t enjoy themselves as much as they’re so busy looking after their guests… So, the answer is simple: let someone else look after your guests for you. Someone like the staff at fantastic Thai Terre in either Eastbourne or Uckfield, for example. Our unique take on a traditional Christmas dinner (which includes dishes such as Thai curry fishcakes, duck with tamarind sauce, and crispy tiger prawns) will take the worry out of cooking for a large group – and if it’s a couple’s Christmas you’re hoping for, then our romantic dining room is just the place for it. Perfect for office parties, family gatherings, or intimate dinners for two, there is nothing quite...

    Celebrate Christmas The Thai Terre Way
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | November 2, 2017
    The office Christmas party is an important tradition. It’s where people can let their hair down, where they can be a bit silly, where they can be themselves, where they can really get to know people who they might otherwise only ever say hello and goodbye to at the office… And it’s a chance for an employer to show their appreciation for their staff who have worked hard all year round and deserve a treat. It’s tradition, yes, but that doesn’t mean it’s a chore – and with Thai Terre and our fantastic, freshly prepared Thai food, you can have your traditional Christmas party with a definite non-traditional twist! Christmas-Parties-1500x1031 Christmas parties aren’t just about work colleagues getting together to let off some steam, though. These days, families and friends can live and work far apart from their loved ones, but at Christmas it is the chance for everyone to get together. If this is the only time during the year that you see everyone face to face, it’s even more important t...

    What Are The Most Popular Thai Dishes?
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | October 28, 2017
    There are so many delicious Thai dishes available from Thai restaurants and takeaways, including our very own Thai Terre, that it can sometimes feel a little overwhelming when it comes to choosing something that is going to satisfy those hunger cravings of yours. Not because you might pick something that doesn’t taste so good (thanks to good quality produce and expert chefs, Thai Terre Eastbourne and Thai Terre Uckfield’s dishes are all delicious), but because everything is so mouth-watering you just don’t know where to start. So here are a few ideas on what the most popular Thai dishes are, and why – these might give you a head start when it comes to making that all-important decision.   Tom Yum Goong Tom Yum Goong is well named! It really is yummy. Made with shrimp as the main ingredient, this clear soup incorporates lemongrass too. It’s the typical ‘hot and sour’ type of Thai dish, but it’s okay to ask for it mild if you prefer.   Pad Thai The best translation for pad Thai is Thai stir-fried noodles, but that doesn’t even begin to describe how good this dish is! It can be a side dish, an accompaniment, or even eaten as ...

    I Don’t Like Spicy Food… So I Won’t Like Thai Food…
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | September 14, 2017
    Some people assume that all Thai food is spicy, and if they don’t like spicy food… well, they won’t want to try Thai. But Thai food isn’t always spicy. It doesn’t have to be. Although the cuisine is known for having the perfect combination of hot and sour, sweet and salty flavours, there are some dishes that have very little chilli heat in them at all, for example, and others still that, if you ask for them to be made mild, they will be.   So there is no excuse – everyone can try (and love!) Thai food!   Spice is just one part of Thai cooking, and doesn’t represent the cuisine as a whole, but if you want to be safe when ordering, there are some dishes to look out for. Remember, it’s usually the addition of red hot chilli peppers that make a dish spicy, and many dishes will include ginger, garlic, or other herbs and spices instead (or as well as) chillies. That way, you can still enjoy the taste of the meal without it being too hot to enjoy.   A useful phrase to remember (if you want to stay authentic) is ‘mai sai prik’. This means ‘without chilli’. Whoever is making your food will definitely know you aren’t keen on chilli i...

    Thai Terre Has Reached Uckfield
    POSTED BY Thai Terre | August 22, 2017
    Thai Terre has been a staple in the Eastbourne area for a while now, but recently we opened a brand new restaurant in Uckfield. We’ve been keen to do this ever since we began, knowing what a lovely place Uckfield is, and our dream has finally come true. So what can you expect at Thai Terre Uckfield? We haven’t let a new restaurant dim our old one in any way, so you can expect either branch of Thai Terre to offer you superb Thai food in Eastbourne or Uckfield. With fresh, delicious ingredients – locally sourced where possible – and expert chefs who know exactly how to combine those ingredients to make perfect Thai dishes, using the right elements of spicy, hot, sour, and sweet, the quality of food served at Thai Terre is beyond compare. But it’s more than just the food (although that is clearly a hugely important part of it). It’s the atmosphere too. And at Thai Terre in Uckfield, that atmosphere is just as good as you remember it from East Dean. If you’ve never visited us before, you’ll love how friendly and comfortable the place is. Our staff are well trained, but they are also innately lovely people, who are keen to make sure that you are having the best ...
