This is authentic thai food.  I made the mistake of going on a weekend for dinner and the line was out the door with a constant que of people outside.  You may be forced to dine with strangers if your party is not big enough to fill a table.

This is the morning glory with garlic and chili

It’s quite a big plate and will feed more than two with relative ease.

The BBQ skewers – mix of chicken and pork.

Top view.  No complaints of my end.  It taste good and the dipping sauce provided added flavour.  The yellow sauce on top of the skewers is curry.

I forgot to take pictures of the pad thai but here it is with the three dishes altogether.  3 dishes for two people.  I love thai food, I only wish thai food came with chinese hospitality where they serve complimentary dessert.  Thai Heng has everything you want in thai food with a menu encompassing the thai hainanese chicken to young coconut drink.  The restaurant allows one to bring your own booze so long as it’s not alcohol they currently serve.

$180 for 2 people.  I will be back for subsequent visits as I have many items on the menu I have yet to try and the food is delicious.  Thai Heng is located on the tram line in Kennedy Town so if you happen to be in or around the area and you have a craving for thai, hop onto the tram for $2.

May 2015 Update.

I dined at Thai Heng on two occasions last week.  The food is still delicious.  More photos of some new dishes on the menu.

The deep fried fish is spicy.  Lots of green beans and they carve up the fish so its indistinguishable from the beans until you bite into it.

it's good.

I ate at Thai Heng on Wednesday, $222 for two people.  We went again on Sunday for 5 people and ordered everything you could possibly imagine.  The roti was good but I suspect they lack a true tandoor oven to make it flaky.  The garlic bread is usual bread with garlic spread.  The chicken rice was delicious.  The coconut rice was fragrant.  The bbq pork neck lacked the typical crunchy texture.  The red curry with duck breast went well with all the carbs.  Pomelo salad was refreshing.  One note, most of their salads use fish sauce as the dressing.  I need to fine tune my fish sauce recipe.  Go check it out.  It’s authentic and affordable which are the main characteristics that distinguish good from mediocre.  There is always a line up out the door during peak hours.  They don’t take reservations so go early.
