Nahm-Jim & the L'Orient Lounge

60-62 Market Street, ST ANDREWS, KY16 9NT

1 rosettes

This family-run Thai and Japanese restaurant in St Andrews has a fanatical local fan base, who come for its pukka dishes in an upbeat setting of red and white walls, wooden floors and Southeast Asian decorations. Taking its name from the hot, sour and salty paste of chilli, coriander, garlic, galangal and lime juice used in Thai dishes, Nahm-Jim deals in authentic Thai cooking using fresh herbs and spices flown in weekly from the markets of Bangkok, as well as Japanese bento boxes, sushi and sashimi. Dim sum are the real deal here, so kick off with flavour-packed parcels of minced pork, shrimp and crab meat, then move on sea bass fillets deep-fried in tempura batter and served with sweet and sour sauce and coconut milk, or a curry (lamb massaman, perhaps, slowly braised with shallots and potatoes in a non-fiery sauce). End on an authentic note with pandan-flavoured pancakes with sweet coconut and coconut ice cream.
