Under-rated Authentic Thai Cuisine

OK, so I wasn't impressed when I tried it last year with friends from Beijing - possibly because they don't eat spicy stuff, and what's good about non-spicy Thai food?

Anyway, was back there last week for dinner with a HK friend whilst shopping, and she was keen to try the set dinner at $14.90. The outlet was pretty quiet for a public holiday night. Friend's set was Tom Yum soup, prawn cake and beef kway-teow soup. I had Tom Yum soup, fish cake and green chicken curry. And I was very impressed!

The soup was superb (I asked for extra spicy and clear tom yum, but the milky version arrived )- it was rich, spicy, tangy, and had sizeable prawns and fish slices and squid. The fish cake and prawn cake were delicious! I love Thai food, and having just had dinner at a downtown Thai restaurant less than a week ago before this, I had to admit these 3 dishes tasted better than that up-market restaurant..at a fraction of the price! The green curry was rich and tasty, and served with rice. We ordered the ice lemongrass tea, which was refreshing, but for $3.90, thought it would be good if it could be refillable? :P Would have loved to try the dessert, but was too stuffed..

The service was commendable - the young waiters seem pretty new but they were helpful and obliging, service with a smile. They were quick to clear our plates and refill our ice-water. When I found out there was a lucky dip promo with ABN-Amro credit cards and requested to change cards, they willingly obliged and cancelled the transaction for the 1st card I offered. There's a sure-win dip - you get a voucher for next return visit. Not sure when the promo ends tho.

Well, I'm definitely gonna bring my friends back here for more tasty authentic Thai fare! :)

Worst meal of the year so far

It was my birthday today and my friends and I decided on Siam kitchen after walking around the fountain. We had the $18.90++ buffet with 15 items. Out of 15 items, I would say only 5 were passable (chicken with basil, green curry, prawn cake, fish cake, pineapple rice), the rest were really horrible.

The minced chicken was horribly dry, the mango salad very stale - definitely not fresh & had no peanuts?!?, the tomyam lacked kick (even packet noodle tomyam base tastes nicer) although it had quite a bit of seafood, their SK special midwing chicken wing tasted terribly dry and frozen, the fish also tasted frozen and was even cold!

For a buffet, the only thing that we ordered second portions of was the ice lemon tea (that we had to add 1.99++ for)!!!

The green curry was enjoyable but we couldn't eat much of it because the other dishes ruined our appetite by then. This review may seem exaggerated, but SK was really really horrible disappointing. All of us agreed that this was the worst meal we've had in ages!!! Even fast food would have given us more satisfaction.

Definitely not worth the money spent. You better siam from Siam Kitchen.

poor service. food was ok

Had the dinner buffet for 20 bucks. If you were really hungry this is the place to go. Some favorites include the fried chicken wings and tao kua.Other dishes were just so-so - stuff you can get easily at the hawker center.

Because I went with a group of guys, we ate a lot. The staff didn't like that. Service degenerated after we ordered more than what they budgeted for.

Siam Kitchen Review

I was attracted by their dinner buffet at $16.90++ so we ventured in. The waitress told us, they would serve everything on the buffet menu and we could reorder the items that we liked. Food came without too long a wait. All the food tasted like Indonesian food rather than Thai food. Pineapple rice: no pineapple taste at all, though it was tasty Fish cake, fried fish, chicken wing, you tiao, fried prawn cake: all tasted like normal fried stuff Satay: weak watery gravy which was sweet, kinda tasty but tasted like Indonesian food. Green chicken curry: it was oh-kay, so-so, can pass, you get the idea Tom Yam soup: again, ok, so-so, can pass. Prawns were fresh though! Service was pretty attentive and they topped up the ice water without prompting. Ambience would depend on your dining timing - if its dinner time - usually on the Suntec area - it will be quite crowded.

All you can eat buffet dinner

I believe I tried the same offer as p w (the all you can eat buffet dinner, advertised at $16.90++ per adult) but had a much better experience.

As I am allergic to all shellfish, many of the offered items on the menu were not applicable to my husband and myself. Although the waitress didn't explain to us how the buffet worked (a minus point) she was prompt in coming over to our table to deliver an explanation when we asked.

Once we realised that the initial spread included every single dish, including items like prawn cake with sweet corn and shrimp paste kang kong which I would be unable to eat, we explained the situation to the waitress who obligingly offered to let the kitchen know we would not be requiring those items, despite the order already having been placed. The offending dishes never appeared on our table (a definite plus).

We did have double orders of the deep fried dory, sk chicken wings, and thai fish cake which were all excellent, as was the green curry chicken. The pineapple rice had more saffron that I was used to and contained actual pineapple pieces (another plus). Unfortunately, we did find the service an occasional disappointment as they did not inform us the 'complimentary' prawn crackers would be charged on our bill and they forgot to send out our initial serve of thai fish cake. However, apart from that I found the meal quite acceptable.

Total cost for 2 people, including GST and service charge, came to $40.95.
