MELBOURNE | Dodee Paidang is a Thai restaurant hidden in the basement of Hotel Causeway, just down a lane way off Little Collins Street. It’s owned by Thai-born Somporn Phosri, who operates the Melbourne Dodee Paidang as well as three Sydney locations.

The tagline on the website is “We serve things most Thai restaurants don’t, Dodee Paidang is not fusion – we offer either traditional-style street food or things we have invented ourselves.” It’s a good summation of the food here, with dishes influenced by those from across Thailand, and in particular Isaan in Thailand’s north east.

The space is large, with enough seating for 150 people. The walls are covered with an assortment of paraphernalia, and the sounds of 90s pop hits fill the air. Tellingly, there are a lot of Thai people eating here most days.

The restaurant’s signature dish is their Tom Yum noodle, served in a clear hot and sour pork broth filled with fried garlic and crispy wonton strips. You can choose from seven types of noodles and toppings like soft pork bone and seafood. Finally, choose from one of seven heat levels – be warned that ‘super nova’ is very hot. A set of condiments on each table allows you to further tweak the bowl to you taste.

The menu is extensive, and beyond the Tom Yum there’s a lot of variety. Think meat skewers, quail egg wontons, pad thai, and som tam.

As a bonus, Dodee Paidang is almost open 24 hours, meaning it’s a great option for a late night feed and breakfast. The breakfast menu is more limited than the full menu, but there’s still a lot on offer, including some very tasty noodle and rice dishes, dry and soupy.

It all adds up to make Dodee Paidang one of the best options in Melbourne for authentic Thai food.
