Reviews for Ah Loy Thai (Shaw Towers)

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 wa
