Located in Shaw Tower, Ah Loy Thai is a small eatery that serves economical and delicious Thai dishes. Do visit this eatery if you love Thai food. Consistent in food quality and serving at a reasonable price with no GST and service charge!
It's been a long wait since I bookmarked Ah Loy maybe a year ago, and perhaps I've come at least 2 or 3 times to try for lunch, but retreated upon hearing the 30+ minutes wait time for food. Today was a late lunch so I thought it might be improved at around 1.30pm, but alas still told to expect a 30 minute wait, and I finally decided to concede.
Pandan chicken ($9) is tasty and nicely presented in the leaf with 4 pieces per serve. It goes well with the sweet chilli sauce. The prawn tom yum soup was flavoursome and a decent size portion to share between 2 or 3 people. The level of spiciness seems to slowly build up. Finally the pineapple fried rice was great, as per the previous reviewer, it defies it's appearance and the chef does well to make it moist but not oily.
Service: Actually the tom yum soup came only 12 mins after ordering, so maybe they are doing themselves a dis-service by overestimating the wait, but at least it sets the right expectation. However I found the service staff a bit slow in providing plates, bowls, and a serving spoon for the soup (which they said had run out, only to see the adjacent table get one a few minutes later). Service can be improved.
Overall: It's quite good food for the price, recommended especially for patient eaters!
Situated far from the bustling Orchard Road at Shaw Towers, Ah Loy Thai still faces long queues on weekend dinner service. . From Thai steamboat to typical Phad Thai, our fussy taste buds are in for a treat at this small Thai eatery.
This is a really cheap and good place for you to have a nice and decent meal at shaw towers. In fact, whenever my friends and I have a craving for Thai food, this place will always be one of the first names that pops up in our lists of Thai dining places to go to. Ah loy Thai has a wonderful and extensive menu of cheap thai food in which you are usually left spoilt for choice and not know what to buy and consume for that meal. This makes me keep wanting to go back to try their food again and also their pretty nice milk tea as well. It can get a little crowded during peak meal hours but if you have the time to spare, do drop by and dine in for some cheap and good Thai food.
