can't even add tofu to the Tom yam soup

Pricy and the waitress has attitude problem. Can't even adjust their menu to customer's request. Not a recommended restaurant.

Mom was in town and since she loved Thai Cuisine, Hubby treated us to Thai Accent. I too love Thai fare because of the strong aromatic components, complex flavors and spiciness.

Thai Accent is quiet and comfortable, with window seating overlooking the waterfront and Sentosa Island. It was a week night and the restaurant was fairly empty. Service was attentive without being intrusive.

The menu is relatively idiot-proof, in plain English without confusing Thai names. Prices are on the high side. Mango salad with dried shrimp ($9.90) was ok, nothing remarkable.

I was disappointed with the Tom Yam Seafood in Fire Pot ($23.90). Although the seafood was fresh and the serving generous, it sorely lacked the characteristic spiciness that Tom Yam soup should possess. Something must have gone wrong that day because I had the same soup on 2 other occasions and it was nothing like this.

Pad Thai Fried Noodles with Prawns ($13.90) was competently executed, with a decent amount of peanut toppings on the side. Absolutely satisfying!

Stirred fried minced pork with hot basil leaf ($15.90)-let your tongues revel in this spicy and flavorful dish!

Stirred fried Kway Teow with Pork Ribs ($13.90) was not bad. Beautifully marinated, tender ribs and smooth kway teow with a smoky flavor; mix in the chilli flakes and nuts for an extra kick. What more can I ask for? We ended our dinner with a very average Pandan Leaf Chicken ($14.90)

Not Bad...

Dunno why I have never eaten at Thai Accent despite being in Vivo for countless times. Dad wanted to bring his client to Thai place for dinner and decided to go to a nearby place from Harbourfront. I didn't object as I thought it's as good a time to check out a new place.

Dad ordered quite a few dishes and I didn't get to try every one tho.

These were good stuff:

• Sambal Kang kong

• Pineapple Rice

• Thai Fishcake

• Deep fried fish

• Green Chicken Curry

This was ok lah:

• Pandan Chicken

Didn't expect this restaurant to serve quite decent spread. Can give Thai Express a run for its money. Save to say its more costly here too. :(

Disappointing service

This is my first time trying Thai Accent out. I had pineapple rice with prawns and tomyum seafood soup with glass noodle. Pineapple rice tasted not that bad and the portion was appropriate. Tomyum seafood soup was good too however the amount of soup was a bit too little. When I requested to top-up the soup, I was told to pay addition $3 for more soup. Eventually I gave the idea of topping up soup.

I had my lunch there in between 2pm - 3pm. The restaurant was quite empty, perhaps the lunch crowd was over. However service crews were not really attentive enough to us. At times I have to walk to them and make my request although there are 5 staffs at service floor.

This is just my point of view. In conclusion, their foods are worth trying if you do not mind their poor service.

nice view, spicy food

2 main course ordered

one is seafood claypot (similar)

the other is basil beef

2 drinks, costing almost $50

 

the seafood - is reasonably okie, but slightly over-cooked, the meat are a bit tough,

basil beef - if u like strong aroma of basil and lots of chilli, u would like this. very strong taste and beef are cut into small pieces that are easy to chew. however, they are very well mixed with basil, chili and other herbs.

serving is considered big for me thou.

i was there for early dinner, hence, got a seat by the window, where we can eat and enjoy the view at the same time
