Chopsticks specialises in both Chinese and Thai dishes and has a massive local following. It’s one of just a handful of Asian restaurants in Hamilton and also has a take-out section. Pop in here in the early evening to gauge its popularity; the telephone rings constantly and a there’s a continual stream of people coming to collect their orders.
The décor in the restaurant itself is distinctly oriental with painted fans, rice paper umbrellas and oriental prints. It’s divided into several sections and can accommodate up to 80 diners.
Prices are reasonable and service is brisk and attentive. Unpronounceable Thai specialties include Yum Lab (your choice of meat with onion, pepper, tomato and cilantro in a spicy lime sauce). Our personal favourite is the Thai Green Curry (choose from chicken, beef, shrimp or scallops with tomatoes, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, baby corns, coconut milk and green curry paste). For dessert try the imaginative Frozen Bailey’s Mud Pie to round things off.
In addition to a good selection of western beers, Chopsticks serves Tiger. This Singaporean beer is sweet and light and is a great partner for spicy Asian food. Wines are available by the glass and bottle.
Chopsticks is open every day of the week. Lunch is served Monday to Friday 11.30 am to 2.30 pm. Dinner is offered daily between 5 pm and 11 pm. It’s situated at the eastern end of Reid Street in Hamilton.
The restaurant is one of two operated by the Bermuda Restaurants group. The other is Rosa’s, a Tex-Mex restaurant on Front Street.
