Food and drink
Authentic Thai that gets even the most seasoned Thailand travellers raving, though they will oblige the Brits by serving chips or egg-fried rice with a curry.
I cannot go to Casa Thai without ordering the pork spare ribs. They’re sweet, sticky and with plenty of meat on the bones. For main course, I’m constantly torn between the basic-yet-delicious beef and basil stir-fry or a decadently creamy Panang curry with duck. It’s worth sharing a variety of plates to avoid food envy!
A very casual affair, it’s always busy with a high turnover of seasonal workers grabbing a quick, cheap feed and Spanish locals looking for the best Thai takeaway this side of the island.
Friendly and fast.
Curbside on the main road into San Antonio, the view’s nothing to write home about but you’re within five minutes walk of everything – shops, the sunset strip, the west end and Ibiza Rocks hotel.
The set menu includes entrée, main, dessert and a drink for just 11.50 euros, while a standard chicken curry goes for 12.95 euros.
The original Casa Thai is just a five minute drive away, on the outskirts of San Antonio, and the menu, service and quality is identical – you’ll even spot the same waiters flitting in between the two.
