Something we hear a lot in Thai Terre East Dean is that when people are considering restaurants in East Sussex they dismiss Thai food because someone in the party doesn’t like spicy food, so we decided it was time to put to rest the myth that all Thai food is spicy.
Thai cuisine is born of a melting pot of different flavours and influences, including Chinese, Vietnamese, Malaysian, and even Indian and Persian. Thai cooking is about choosing a few strong flavours which complement and harmonise with one another to make something special. Key ingredients are rice or noodles of course, turmeric, coconut milk, lemon grass, spring onion, garlic and, if you want it, ginger and chilli, in combination with a wide variety of other spices, mushrooms, vegetables and meats. Some of the dishes, such as Sweet and Sour Chicken, are not hot at all but still have all the character of traditional Thai cooking. If you are in any doubt, our menu has a picture of a chilli next to the hot dishes, or any of the staff would be happy to guide you.
One of the reasons that Thai Terre is among the best Thai restaurants in Eastbourne area is that we cook all our dishes from scratch, using fresh locally sourced ingredients. This means that we can cook to your personal taste. For example, if you like the sound of our Singapore Fried Noodles or our Cashew Nut Stir Fry, but are worried about how hot it will be, let your waiter know when ordering and our chef can leave out most or all of the hot spice, to your taste.
Also, look out for our new Thai delivery menu – soon you will be able to get your favourite Thai dishes cooked the way you like them and delivered to your own home!
