Thai food in Thailand is almost the centre of attention at any social gathering because of the way Thai cuisine comes together and how it is eaten. When ordering Thai cuisine in the West from a restaurant or takeaway, you tend to order a starter, main course and dessert per person. However, in Thailand this system of ordering is nonexistent nor is there a system of ordering portions per person.

Thai food becomes like a social gathering as dishes are ordered according to number of guests present. This is because all dishes are ordered to be shared with each other. Another reason dishes are shared is because it is considered bad luck in Thailand if you eat alone.

When ordering Thai cuisine you typically order all the main four seasonings - salty, sweet, sour and spicy. If all four tasted are not combined then a Thai dish will not be satisfying. A great takeaway order would include a variety of dishes - meat and/or fish dishes, a selection of vegetable and noodles and maybe some soup. If dessert is ordered then this usually consists of fresh fruit usually pineapple.

Thais are also renowned for enjoying their snack food and street food is extremely popular in Thailand and very cheap. Tasting delicious it will leave your mouth watering for more. These popular snack items on a Thai takeaway menu would include crispy spring rolls, chicken or beef satay, soups, salads and raw vegetables with a delicious spicy dip. All perfect snack items for a social gathering.

Thai cuisine also places importance on how the food is presented to its diners. When ordering in restaurants more often than not platters will be delivered which are beautifully decorated. Fruits and vegetables are beautifully carved into intricate flowers and other designs. Some dishes found in restaurants and takeaway menus include these intricate designs in the dish itself.

Whether you are going out for a Thai meal with friends or ordering a Thai takeaway to share with friends at home, you can be sure of one thing - everyone will enjoy the meal with not a trace of leftovers on any plate. Each dish ordered from your local Thai takeaway will be authentic and prepared and cooked using only the finest and freshest ingredients so you truly get a taste of Thailand.

The next time you are having friends over for a social gathering and don't know what to order, then order Thai from your local takeaway and impress your guests with the delicious dishes that are on offer. Thai delivery is one of the most popular food delivery services for any social gathering.
