Mr Nice Guy Restaurant
5:30pm - 10:30pm
Tucked away in an otherwise quiet pocket of the western business end of the CBD (which is mostly pretty dead after 5pm), Mr Nice Guy features colourful shabby-kitsch interiors and casual cheap eats for the lunch-goers of the area. That said, things here are definitely turned up a notch for dinner with good wines and a subtle foray into Thai-Aussie fusion.
During the day, the menu services the time-poor office lunch crowd with quick curries, wok-fried dishes and the house special tom som (green papaya) salad, which is served with a choice of protein options. By night, things get a little more complex, with dishes such as red duck curry with lychee and pineapple; and spicy sour orange curry with tiger prawns, leek and cauliflower.
The dinner pace is decidedly more leisurely too, with an emphasis on shared, family-style eating. If you have room for more, fusion desserts such as the lemongrass cheesecake with smoked pineapple are sure to leave all with a big smile by night’s end.
