A cracker of a start

This exclusive Thai menu consists of over 15 dishes that range from the familiar to unheard of. We started off with Satay Kai {Thai chicken satay} which was served with a peanut sauce that we wanted to drink up right from the tiny bowl it came in {but we didn’t}. Then came Kai Hor Bai Toey, a plate of bite-sized chunks of chicken that were delicately wrapped in Pandanus leaves and then deep-fried.

We loved the prawn crackers; they kept our appetites whetted while we waited for our mains to come in. There’s also a yummy selection of chef Tam’s signature appetisers like Yam Som-o {Thai pomelo salad with prawns} and Yam Khai Dow {deep fried egg salad}.

Fried rice, curries, and then some

We had high expectations from their Kaeng Kiew Wan {Thai green curry} with vegetables, mostly because we’ve had our fair share of great green curries in the city. With the right balance of sweet, sour, and salty, this dish had us reaching for multiple helpings. The star of the main course, however, was Khao Phad Tom Yam {stir fried rice infused with herbs and tom yam paste}, which, apart from being the prettiest looking dish of the lot, packed a punch of flavour.

And no matter how stuffed you are, we insist that you make some space for Tab Kim Krob, a wonderful dessert comprising sweetened coconut milk with jellied water chestnut and bits of litchi. You’ll love it, we swear.
