It appeared to have a pizza type crust - not the soft nature a naan should be!

Perhaps we are trying to compare apples and oranges. I may be on shaky ground here but this was an Afghani restaurant and I was hoping for Indian naan.  I suspect they are not the same.  

 

 I thought it would be like this.

Ah, so perhaps it was not touted as naan to begin with, but rather some flat Afghani bread of sorts.

 It was most definitely labelled as naan on the menu. 

A search on Afghani naan does indeed reveal bread looking very similar to what we had.

 Today Kerry and I had business in Dundas so we lunched here at Bangkok Spoon.

 

 We decided to share some appetizers. I washed down mine with a glass of Pinot Gris  and Kerry stuck with water.

 Sticky rice and peanut sauce.

 

We were both quietly amused when a couple of ladies at a table beside us asked for chopsticks.  Apparently the staff are accustomed to this and produced chopsticks  without blinking an eye.

@Anna N...my husband was chastised (nicely) by a server at our local Thai restaurant as he fell prey to the "asian food = chopsticks" theory. He no longer asks for chopsticks at Thai restaurants and will take note of the lack of same on the table, to acknowledge his lesson learned!

The restaurant has expanded its outdoor seating since the last time we were here.
