After a few years of winning over Brisbane tastebuds with their array of saucy, flavoursome curries, Fortitude Valley’s Kid Curry is mixing things up. While they previously dished up eats from all over South Asian, they’ve now narrowed their focus to give Thai food the attention it deserves—and while we’ll definitely miss the butter chickens and rendangs, we’re not mad about the chance to add more massaman and pad see ew to our lives. 

With Kid Curry’s kitchen team being predominantly Thai, the change was inevitable, and sees them doing a deep dive into what they are really good at. Bonus, the menu also now features more snacks, stir-fries, grilled dishes and even desserts, so you can have a well-rounded meal (which should always include dessert).

Start off with bites like corn and lombok fritters, cured kingfish and crisp chicken, pickles, banana chilli relish and mayo on bread, before moving onto larger dishes like like yellow pumpkin with pumpkin, cauliflower, sweet corn and snake beans; smashed prawns stir fried with red curry sauce; and green curry with beef, apple eggplant, bamboo shoots and basil. And don’t forget the side of roti—which you can also get for dessert with banana, Thai-Tea ice cream and chocolate ganache. 

Of course, being from the same team as Happy Boy, dietaries are well covered here, with enough gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options to cover everyone in your group. Drinks are plentiful too, with a curated list of international wines,  a handful of beers and non-alcoholic options and even a few cocktails if you just can’t go past a margarita. The minimalist venue lends itself as easily to date night as a relaxed group feed, so whatever the occasion, grab yourself a table and prepare for a spicy feast.
