Thai for lunch, and it was so good!!

Khob Khun was our destination for lunch, a first time visit, and it provided a most-enjoyable dining experience.  We (senior couple & daughter) arrived at the restaurant at 11 am, opening time, and easily found a space to park in the area provided along one side of the restaurant.  We were warmly-welcomed inside by the server and shown to a table by the front window (view out to Austin Ave).  Mugs of hot tea and menus (two menus - full menu, and lunch 'specials' menu) quickly followed.  First impressions of the restaurant once seated and able to get a look about -- bright, cheerful, simply, but colourfully-furnished, clean, neat, and tidy, warm, and for us, provided an almost immediate nice 'homey' feel.  

Service was friendly and personal throughout our stay, and as required, attentive, and helpful, especially when ordering, being rather new to Thai food, our server's friendly help was much-appreciated.  

What was ordered and shared:    (please note:  actual names, and descriptions of food dishes provided, are theirs, as per the menu listings.)

-  Tea:  Green Tea - mugs and teapot (w/refills).
-  Appetizers:  Calamari (Squid) - deep fried rings, served with sweet chili sauce -- Tao Hu Tod - deep fried tofu, served with sweet and sour sauce topped with ground peanut.
-  Noodles:  Khao Soi (Curry Noodles) - egg noodles with sliced chicken, northern Thai style curry sauce topped with crispy egg noodle, green onion, and cilantro, served with red onion, pickles, lime, and chili oil.
-  Stir Fries:  Pad Khing - with pork, ginger, mushroom, bell peppers, onion, and green onion -- Drunken Seafood - mixed seafood, with fresh chili, onion, bell peppers, kaffir lime leaves, and Thai sweet basil.
-  Rice:  Steamed Rice - small bowl.

Presentations looked so good - colourful and pretty on the white backgrounds of the differently-shaped, and rather nice serving dishes.  And especially noted, the various dishes came to our table in 'the' appropriate sequence --  appetizers first - with sufficient time allowed for us to savour and enjoy each - dishes cleared, and then the three entree dishes and side dish of rice -- perfect!!

Preparations (we asked for 'mild, spicy') - tasting the various foods sure backed up those lovely-looking (have to say "mouth-watering") presentations -- high quality ingredients, so fresh, and well-prepared, and to-the-mark with 'heat' of the spices and other flavourings used - for us, just right to truly-savour and enjoy the distinctive flavours of each.  And we had such a good and wide-range of offerings to sample -- seafoods, tofu, meat, poultry, veggies, sauces, and garnishes -- to get a really great first taste of some of the many tastes and flavours of their Thai preparations.

Our dining at Khob Khun was a delight.  I believe we really experienced the 'love & care' the owners and staff put into the operations, and food preparations of their great little restaurant in Austin Heights.
