Gung Hay Fat Choy to all..
We had lunch here today. We have had a take-away before and it was so good. Sadly they don't deliver. It's a tiny place with only 18 seats inside which were all occupied. We sat outside where they have 4-5 tables. It's a basic restaurant, very clean, excellent service and good Thai/Asian food.
Lots of my friends rave about it. You will find half the customers here are Thai, and they know a good Tom Yom Koong soup when they find one. They are not wrong it was very good, best I've had outside Thailand. (It's a spicy shrimp, straw mushrooms, lemon grass, basil, yummy deliciousness good for clearing sinuses) Our 7 year old bambino was with us so couldn't opt for spicy main courses. She adored the shrimp rolls.
2 Portions shrimp rolls with Thai chilli sauce KD 4.500 (see below each portion 8 pcs)
1 Tom yum koong soup KD 2.250
1 Green prawn curry KD 2.250
1 Stir fried mixed veg KD 1.750
1 Stir fried brocolli and beef KD 1.750
1 Fried rice with crab KD 1.750
3 Soft drinks KD 0.750
Total KD 14.500
1 portion of shrimp rolls
I would have taken a pic of the Tom yum and the rest of the food but we were hungry and I totally forgot. Portions are large here which makes it overall very good value for money. We will order less next time and opt for the really spicy stuff.
For the brave they have durian fruit for dessert which is, due to it's strong smell, prohibited in some hotels in Thailand and Singapore. I couldn't smell anything in the restaurant but maybe no one had ordered it.
A little durian trivia-
• The smell of a durian has been compared to overripe cheese, rotting fish, unwashed socks and a city dump on a hot summers’ day.
• Historians report that Sir Stamford Raffles, who established Singapore as a British trading post in 1819, held his nose and ran in the other direction if he so much as caught even a whiff of the dreaded fruit.
• The durian is reported to be an aphrodisiac, according to several Asian folk sayings.
LWDLIK- LOL not sure if I believe the last one if it smells that bad.
Update on 8/10/2016 - Sadly, the service is now very slow and confused and the food quality is below average. Such a shame used to be a great little restaurant.
