Good sharing menu – Chong Co Kingston, Canberra – Thai cuisine

Standard

IMG_0001 IMG_0002

Chong Co Thai on the Kingston Foreshore offers a lovely lakeside setting in the good weather (but can also be busy and noisy in winter). Service is excellent. Serves are generous and flavours delicious.

However, prices per dish tend to be $2-3 more than the sister restaurants, perhaps to cover the higher rent.
