With its scarlet staircase, bold blooms, colourful artwork and lush greenery, Favourite Thai's interior is wonderfully bright and contemporary. Traditional Thai music provided a peaceful soundtrack to our meal, which took place in view of a beautiful back-lit water feature. Comfortably seated, we received prompt and attentive service from our hosts, who were clearly practised in providing a high level of hospitality.

The food was gloriously authentic and the choice immense. In the end I went for a generous serving of gai satay chicken to start - lightly spiced with a zesty fresh salad and an exceedingly tasty peanut sauce. My companion had mushroom soup with lemongrass and bamboo shoots. Fiery and delicious, it was a real taste of Thailand.

The main courses were equally good. Mine came in the form of a sizzling chef's special - beef in red wine sauce with crunchy, full-bodied onions and peppers. It was richly flavoured and served with fragrant coconut rice, which I could have eaten forever. My partner tried the chicken stir fry with chillies, which was hot, tender and deeply satisfying - particularly when coupled with noodles full of plump prawns and sharp spring onions on the side.

Dessert was soothing and aromatic coconut milk with banana and sesame seeds - ideal after the heat of the dishes we'd chosen. All in all, an unexpectedly yet decidedly exotic evening in Burton upon Trent.
