Mommy Thai restaurant is just around the corner from the Grand Opera House so would make an ideal pre-theatre dinner.  They also do a very good value lunch.  From their website “Mommy Thai-York, a Thai restaurant located in the heart of York, proudly provides authentic Thai dishes by an original recipe, friendly serving among Thai-streetfood atmosphere.”  My favourite here is the Tamarind Duck.

Thai Season by Pritsana

Hull Road, Wilberfoss, York YO41 5PF

I have visited Thai Season by Pritsana a couple of times and both times have had a great meal.  It’s a short drive out of York on the A1079 towards Pocklington, but definitely worth the trip.

Church Cottage, York Road, Escrick, York YO19 6EX

I have visited the Sangthai many times over the years and have always had a fantastic meal.  The service is always courteous and welcoming.  From their website: “Full-flavoured soups sparkle with chilli and lemongrass, and curries are rich with aromatic and spicy tastes. There is no bland, compromised cooking here. But those with a less fiery palate shouldn’t be put off as all dishes are cooked to order and the heat can be turned down.”
