Colonel Tan's

When the head chef from Cookie and the Toff in Town throws Thai food with a touch of Americana on the menu you end up with the likes of a tofu Whopper and satay sauce or a Thai take on a Chiko Roll stuffed with chicken and beancurd. When you need a rest from exploring the wacky world of the Thai-merican menu they have trivia nights on Tuesdays, special local's nights for all people who live, work and study in the 3181 postcode and DJ sets on Friday and Saturdays.
