Authentic Thai Food :)

First visted this nice little Thai restuarant when I was working near Suntec area. Was really impressed by the food. I usually go in groups of 4 - 8 and we will order many items to share. Delicious phad thai, pandan chicken and mango salad! 
Service is so-so probably due to many customers. Once I went on a Saturday at 7.30pm and this old man turned us down rudely. He kept using his hands to show us it's closed for walk in and signal us to not walk in, without a hint of smile.

Best Butter Calamari in the world

Finally made a visit here at Ah Loy Thai after hearing about it a few years back! Located within Shaw Towers at Beach Road, Ah Loy Thai really is a hidden gem that everyone should discover. Despite not having a posh ambiance,  this simple Thai eatery do serves affordable and authentic Thai cuisine. It's the beauty of such eatery that makes me go back for more.  It's one of the rare occasion that I failed to order Green Curry and Tom Yam in a Thai eatery. As much as not being a fan of squid, this was actually one of the rare occasion that I initiated to order the Butter Calamari ($8.9). It was the BEST decision ever!

Other dishes were Pandan Chicken, Glass Noodles, Pineapple fried rice and a few more.

Will never patronise them again

I had always been an avid fan of Ah Loy for many years. Due to work commitments, I have not come to Ah Loy for about a year. I have made a trip down to Ah Loy recently and the standard of the food has dropped drastically. Service has been equally bad (if not worse) but since I did not pay any service charge, I am fine with it. Will never go back again even if the food is free. There are better Thai food places offering better service and more quality food in Singapore.

Unacceptable "Thai" Food

1. Waiting time of 1hr 15mins for food. I'm a believer of waiting for good food, so naturally my expectation is "this better be worth it".

2. Pineapple rice tastes just like chinese zhi char style fried rice, with a few tiny grains of pineapple. Arrived first on the table, it laid here for 10 mins because nothing else arrived.

3. And our SEAFOOD tom yum soup arrived 10 mins later. Not sure if I ordered seafood soup, or prawn soup, because there were only THREE prawns and several slices of mushrooms. I asked the lady (helper) what exactly does their seafood tom yum soup consist of, and why was there only THREE prawns. And she said yes prawns and mushrooms. And that IF I ordered the "PRAWN" tom yum soup I would get FOUR prawns. She has the nerve to say she isn't quite sure because that was what the chef said. Oh my great heavens. I'm not even mad, I'm actually quite amazed by how their set items were derived.

4. Asparagus with prawns was slightly raw, but fine.

5. Mango fried chicken was the only thing that didn't go wrong.

Totally not worth. Any random shop at Orchard Towers would beat this hands down. Even the nearby Porn's Thai Food is tons better than this nonsense. 

Not going to be here even if there wasn't any queue.

Good homemade stuff without the MSG!

I really think I should start skipping breakfast and dinner so I can save space for my increasingly frequent lunches. Actually today, I was already eating my Greek yogurt in the office at about 12. Had only fruits in the morning so I was hungry. Then Anne and Maybelline asked me to go lunch with them.. hard to say no.. so yes I went with them! Ha. So I gotta re adjust my calorie intake plan now.. We took a short walk to Shaw Towers and decided to have Thai food. as we were pretty early we managed to get a table immediately. it looks like a family business, the host who showed us to our table was a polite uncle who looked like part of the family business haha. We were given this order chit – choices aren’t a lot but i guess it was alright. The only curry they have is green curry, and they have the usual tom yum soup, stir fry dishes etc. and today, their salad dishes were all out of stock =_= oh well, doesn’t really matter la. The restaurant was quite empty at first, then the crowd started strolling in at about 1230-1245pm and there was even a queue outside at some point. For full review and pics, please visit here - cheers!
