Realised that there is no long queue thus; I decided to try it out with my family.
I like the menu as it's easy to refer to and you will know what to order right away.
I ordered the Glass Noodles in Tom Yam Seafood Soup, Fried Kway Teow with Seafood and Fried Fish Fillets with Thai Chilli sauce. We did nolt try the desserts as I can see the portion is quite enough from the other table.
The food is served shortly and it looks so appetising.. The taste is fabulous as the tom yam soup is not that spicy after all. I can see that the portion is quite generous as there are about 7 pieces of fish meat in the soup. I love it a lot!
The fried kway teow is not that bad too. It's not oily so it is suitable for people with a strict diet as there are vegetables.
It's simply pleasant dining here with family or with friends.
First of all, exploring Orchard Central to find shops is a challenge. There is a striking resemblance of the layout between Orchard Central & Central Mall, offering unfriendly navigation & bad visibility of shops.
This was the shortest queue of all the food outlets located on level 8 so we went for this. Me and my BFF (just let me use this term for once :p) ordered:
1) Stuffed Chix Wings (2 pcs) - $7.90
2) Thai Fried Pineapple Rice with Seafood - $9.90
3) Clear Tom Yum Soup - $6.90
4) Lemon Grass Juice with Soda - $4.90
5) Mixed Berries Soda - $4.90
I had already gotten quite hungry after trying to locate eateries within this complex, so was hoping the food came faster. We ended up waiting close to a good 40mins. The soup was first to come (after the drinks). Does re-heating of some soup take 40mins??!! Lucky the soup was pretty good - hot with generous portions of seafood swimming in there. I guess this was best of the lot, compared to what that was to come.
The next was the stuffed chicken wings. I did not like this as it was not 'gareng' enough and it was not well marinated. There was a 'frozen' aftertaste and smell and I don't really like that.
The pineapple fried rice was not good either. It had a very pre-mix kind of aftertaste. No 'wo-hei' for fried rice and had a very 'instant food' kind of taste and feel. If 7-11 sold Thai pineapple seafood fried rice, it would taste like this.
The food here is disappointing folks. If I have to wait this long for simple and basic Thai fare like these, it had better taste better. I've tasted simple & cheaper Thai fare elsewhere and some are really good.
Service was ok, nothing fantastic but not the worst I've experienced. On a separate note, I read another HGW review that mentioned of roaches. I have to say that, while I did not see any crawling around me, I did see remnants of roaches on the floor.
I was at OC one day and wanted to try something new. Entered Central Thai and hoped it would be as good as Thai Express. Unfortunately, no.
The fried kway teow was too oily and the pineapple fried rice was nothing special. The warm water served was HOT water and I could see the steam rising. I tried to drink it but I only scalded my tongue.
Even though the restaurant opposite was crowded, Central Thai was empty except for one couple. Now I know why.
For adventurous eaters or those who want a change from the usual chicken, beef or pork, there are restaurants and butchers in Singapore that offer unusual, mostly farmed, meats such as turtle, kangaroo, even shark

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
