Sailor's Thai, The Rocks

Very very ordinary meal at Sailor's Thai last night.  Peter Bowyer passed away last April, and he is sadly missed. 
On arrival the entry area smelt like urine.  It's old and tired and needs to be redone. 
We were shown to a very ordinary table downstairs, but then offered a table on the balcony, which was lovely as it was a beautiful Sydney night.

It supposedly has One Hat - Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, but I suspect that was then.

We started with Pork Crackling & Quail Eggs with Green Chilli and Tomato Relish.  It was lovely - the crackling like paper.   Then the Duck Salad - which was for me the standout dish of the night.  The Stir Fried Tajima Wagyu Beef with Onions, Oyster Sauce & Thai Basil was very good.    The Stir Fried Mushrooms with Spring Onions were also good.  The Deep Fried Berkshire Pork Hock with Garlic, Peppercorn & Chilli Sauce was fatty and almost inedible, and the Chicken in Banana Leaf just revolting.

I am being harsh, but we have been coming to this restaurant for years, and to the original Darley Street, and it's just not as good as it once was.  Shame, as it is such a short walk from our apartment.
