Food-wise, Nara Thai is one of the better upper-mid-priced casual Thai establishments around. Not the best, but with over 100 items on their menu, you're bound to order something that tickles your fancy. And certainly one that makes for a pretty satisfying meal that's easy on the wallet.

We had:

1) Gai Tord Samunprai ($10.90) - crispy fried chicken redolent of Thai herbs like dried chillis, ginger and green peppercorns: juicy and succulent.

2) Koh Moo Tord Hgar ($10.90) - marinated pork neck highlighted by a liberal sprinkling of aromatic sesame seeds: crisp exterior, moist interior. 

3) Kaeng Panaeng Moo ($13.90) - tender pork slices smothered in a robust coconutty red curry: superb.

4) Kai Jiew Nua Phu ($12.90): fluffy crabmeat omelette generously woven with fresh shredded crabmeat which lent sweetness. 

5) Tom Yum Kung ($19.90): laced with bulging tiger prawns in spicy lemongrass soup, but lackluster. The prawns had a muddy taste which contaminated the spicy but lacking in depth of flavour soup. 

6) Phad Pak Boong ($10.90) - stir fried morning glory lightly seasoned with oyster sauce and spiced with freshly cut birds eye chillis and crisp garlic sprinkles: scrumptiou

Green Mango Salad: Spicy and sourish, very appetising. $12.90. Must try.

Phad Thai noodles: $14.90. ordered

Average Thai fare

Starting from the entrance of Nara Thai, you will realise that many of the servers are Thai- we knew we were going to have polite service that day.

We tried the Hors d'oeuvre Nara ($17.90). This is a

lousy food, lousy service

The original Nara in Thailand is so much better. This one is over priced and worse, the taste is barely there. Plus the service is simple the worse. Cold and unfriendly.
