I ordered the Pla muk khatiam and Papaya salad on the recommendation of my friendly waiter.
The Papaya Salad was colorful and refreshing, with a tasty combination of papaya strips, cherry tomatoes, garlic and squeezed lemon.
The Papaya salad complemented the second starter beautifully. The Pla muk khatiam (a calamari lightly smoked in oyster sauce and garlic) was much more delicious than it first appeared. My initial doubts were quashed when I realized just how juicy the dish was, and the garlic sauce was a definite winner.
I’d gladly order another portion of the calamari, but be aware: the dish isn’t cheap for an opening order. Of course, I didn’t ask for more on this occasion — I wanted to save space in my stomach for the food still to come!
In short: both dishes were excellent and fueled my desire to eat more delicious Thai food.
Score for starters: 9/10.
For the main course, I ordered the “Pahd ki mao Shangai” after a long deliberation and help from the (very patient) waiter.
The “Pahd ki mao sen Shanghai” consists of Shanghai noodles with scrambled egg, yard long beans, Chinese broccoli and basil leaves with black soy sauce. It can be served with either chicken, beef, pork or seafood (I chose beef).
When the dish arrived, it looked a little different to the noodles we’re all familiar with, but I trusted the waiter’s recommendation.
That was a great decision on my part: the combination of the curly bean noodles with the other ingredients was excellent. It was unlike anything I’d ever eaten before!
Without a doubt, Thai House Restaurant gave me one of the most successful main courses I’ve had recently.
Score for main course: 9.5/10.
Well, after a delicious, satisfying meal, there’s nothing like a good dessert to leave a sweet taste in your mouth.
At yet another enthusiastic recommendation from the waiter, we ordered a dessert called Naam-Kaeng Sai. This is chilled coconut milk punch with tapioca pearls and seasonal fruits, topped with crushed ice.
The dessert was inexpensive compared to those in similar restaurants, and was absolutely delicious. It was refreshing, tasty and wasn’t too heavy on my stomach either. I felt completely satisfied and felt the dessert ended my Thai House Restaurant in style!
Score for dessert: 8/10.
