Holy Basil, Fairfield

Lychee drink
This place is very busy because it's a beautifully decorated, the menu is extensive and the food is tasty.  Highly recommended by a local; I came here on a Thursday night having very high expectations. I was not disappointed.

We shared a plentiful feast of roasted duck with rice, your classic pad thai and polished off a delicious dessert of pastry wrapped ice cream.

The duck was beautifully cooked with a complex mix of flavours of sweet and savoury, creamy, mildly spiced curry sauce.  A definite recommend.

The pad thai was of the thinner noodle kind with your typical pad thai flavours. A nice and consistent dish. I personally prefer the thicker noodles with a touch of spice.

The must have of the night was the fried ice cream. With lashings of caramel, coconut shavings and vanilla ice cream which was perfectly encased in cooked pastry - you will be having a foodgasm.
