A relatively new restaurant opened in Fairfield called Green Peppercorn Lao-Thai restaurant, being only a few months old. My dad drove by on a Friday night and saw BMWs, full security and lights. Also, according the Fairfield Champion, the man who has been using his parent's recipes at Holy Basil is now the general manager at Green Peppercorn. After receiving 8 frees slurpees from 7-11 (not all for me), we walked to green peppercorn for lunch.
On the window sill are golden statues. The interior is very neat and modern creating a very smart look for the hotel. There are bird cage lights hanging from the ceiling and there's even a blue and yellow tuk-tuk near the bar.
"I can't get over the fact that this place used to be a bar and there's a casino at the back." a friend commented multiple times as we approached the door.
gang kiew wan - chicken green curry ($12.90):
Aromatic curry with vegetables and sweet basil. The small pieces of chicken were covered with a generous amount of ginger strips and sweet basil making it very fragrant and the thickness of it was good too.
pad kapao - seasoned vegetables ($10.90):
Chilli, basil garlic suace with stir fried green beans, onion, banana chilli (seasonal vegetables). The sweet chilli sauce is not overly thick or spicy.
yum womsen ($12.90):
Mixed hot and sour seagood vermicelli salad tossed in Chef's special dressing of dry shrimp, peanuts, tumeric and lime juice served on a bed of lettuce, tomato, spanish onions and mixed with glass noodles, coriander, shallots and mint leaves.

Stir fried thin rice noodles with garlic, chives, red onions, egg and garnished with bean sprouts and crushed peanuts.

Home made pork sausages, lightly seasoned and grilled over a charcoal bbq giving it a crispy skin and tender centre. Served with mum's special sauce.
pad see ew chicken ($12.90):
Sweet soy sauce flavoured stir fried flat noodles with vegetables and egg.
Damn, I didn't get a chance to try their desserts! (i.e. pandan creme brulee). Saw good reviews of it everywhere. Maybe next time !
Fairfield is changing! Maybe its shifty impression will change into something more prosper. Very co-operative staff. Overall, I think everyone had an enjoyable time making conversation over lunch and spending about $8.50 per person for 8 people. Serving sizes would be considered small for the price charged though.
