Thai Yindee, Newtown

Going to a university that is within walking distance to Newtown, I have long heard about the vast number of Thai restaurants that are clustered along the bustling and vibrant King St. I was promised "cheap and good" Thai food and indeed I was spoilt for choice when I finally set foot in that marvellous dining precinct.

Stir fried chilli jam pumpkin and chicken with vegetables and rice (Lunch special ~$7)
For me, the highlight of this dish was the pumpkin - soft and mildly sweet, it tasted superb stir fried with the chilli jam (more sweet than it was spicy) and oyster sauce. The chicken and the other vegies were good as well, albeit a little average. 

Stir fried eggplant and chicken with vegetables and rice (Lunch special ~$7)
From what I can recall, the eater of this dish liked the eggplant but overall thought the dish was okay, nothing too great.

However, we both left feeling very full and satisfied, and the lunch special is really great value for money. It was relatively quiet when we had our lunch, so it was a relaxing atmosphere and we didn't have to wait for a table nor feel rushed to vacate the table for the next hungry diner, which is good :)
