1st tip I can offer is to park just beside odeon tower by the road since this joint has outdoor seating. The security guard does not really care as its free parking for the white lots after 5pm.First impression of the place is good, I like the ratten furniture. I ordered the following1. Tom Yum Soup Seafood with 1 chilli ratingA bit small bowl but I loved it. Seafood was plenty but most importantly the soup itself packs punch2. Baby KaiLanThis is quite normal though, stir fried with garlic and oyster sauce3. Dry curry pork with 1 chilli ratingThis is nice, will go well with rice definitely. I believe the pork slices has been fried before hand. It's like a thicker green curry version but red instead4. Clay pot Tung Hoon with PrawnsThis is the best dish for me, the tang Hoon quantity was very generous and prawns were decently sized. It's as good as having the crab version For drinks I had lychee ice tea, it was good but way too much ice in the glass.Service wise, I'm sure it can be improved as I need quite a while to get attention of the service staff sometimes. Some suggestion for the restaurant includes serve foc ice water and offer condiments to the customers. My bill works out to be $51, i think such pricing, ice water should be generously provided. Will try their fish offering during my next visit continue reading

I have been invited to a food tasting event at this Thai restaurant in Katong area. Even though I'm late for the event, but I still managed to reach the place as they were about to dig into the first dish...'Dry Curry Pork' - S$8This would be my favourite dish that night. Although, it's given the name 'Dry Curry Pork', but in actual fact the succulent 'Pork' have this nice aroma and taste of good 'Curry'. On top of that, the bite size pieces of 'Pork' not only makes it easy to chew, it also acts as a pretty good finger food too. 'Claypot Tung Hoon Prawn' - S$16This is actually very good. The 'Tung Hoon'(Vermicelli) is pretty moist and even though it's dark in colour, it's not too salty. Too bad, I have to keep a bit of space in my stomach for the desserts, else I would have emptied the whole claypot of 'Tung Hoon' within minutes. By the way, there's lots of prawns inside this small little pot of 'Tung Hoon' too.

Ordered a Thai iced tea to quench my thirst and I loved it. Anyway I am not a fan of lemongrass, and milk helps to alleviate the spiciness. We started off the meal with Mango Salad $7 which is a medley of classic ingredients such as green mango, onions, cherry, tomatoes tossed with peanuts and dried shrimps. I personally find it a tad too spicy. Still, a decent appetizer, tangy and spicy. The Glass Noodle Salad $8 was yummy and filling with a generous portion of chicken, prawns, cuttlefish and dried shrimps in the tunghoon. Love the chili lime dressing, perfect for summer nights!I wasn’t particularly wow-ed by the Tom Yum Soup (choice of chicken/ pork/ prawn/ seafood) $8 but the chef here is generous with the seafood as some places only have a few pieces of meat and a chunk of spices. Somehow the soup wasn’t that spicy as compared to the mango salad. Perhaps the most healthiest dish of the day was the Steamed seabass $29. I have never tried seabass this way, but it was actually quite delish with the spicy lime sauce.One of the signature dishes is the Non-spicy grilled pork served with the Chef's Special Thai sauce $11. The meat was juicy and tender, though the sauce would have tasted better with some zing by throwing in some pineapples.Another noteworthy one was the Dry Curry Pork $8. As the name suggests, only a minimum amount of coconut curry clings onto the meat but the flavours are no less compromised as it went fantastically with the Olive Fried Rice $8. The rice is peppered with slices of raw onions, chilli padi and lovely toasted cashew nuts for a more exciting texture. My favorite dish was the Claypot Tunghoon-Prawn steamed with vermicelli and Thai Sauce $16, served piping hot! A definite must try, probably the best tunghoon I have ever had in my entire life! The chef probably stir-fried the tung hoon with her homemade thai sauce. And yes, there’s always room for dessert. The Mango sticky rice $6 served on porcelain leaf dish, makes the dish so aesthetically appealing. The mango is sweet enough and pairs excellently with the warm sticky rice. Being a Thai food fanatic, I am thankful to have tried such a wide spread of authentic Thai dishes. Happy and full stomach~!For full review and more photos, please visit http://dairycream.blogspot.jp/2013/09/baan-khun-nai-authentic-thai.html continue reading

This time we’re here at Baan Khun Nai Authentic Thai Cuisine, to try out some of their well-known dishes like Tom Yum Soup and Green Curry Chicken. The chef comes from the Northern part of Thailand and thus the food served here are surely authentic!Full review on: http://www.chiamhuiy.com/2013/09/food-review-baan-khun-nai-authentic.htmlBoy was I bought over by this Lychee Iced Tea. It gives a very fruity taste thanks to the real lychee placed in the drink. Then again, there was a slight tea bitterness in it, which perfects the drink in good balance. To start off a sumptuous spread of dinner, we had the Mango Salad (S$7) that does nothing but triggers my hunger even more. The sourness in this dish was definitely the addictive factor. I love the toppings of cashew nuts to add a nutty flavor to the spicy and sour Mango Salad. Comes with cherry tomatoes, peanuts and topped with dried shrimps which added a crunch to it. Glass noodle salad (S$8), also known as the Thai Vermicelli Salad was another wonderfully prepared appetizer. In fact, it can easily act as a main considering the bountiful amount of seafood drowning the vermicelli under. All the seafood ingredients look so juicy and huge, I can't stop drooling by looking at the photo. The Non-spicy Grilled Pork (S$11) certainly stole the limelight that night, especially when it was wiped out almost immediately upon serving. The specialty of this dish was none other than the Special Thai Sauce that was prepared by the Thai Chef herself.Looks like the sauce was very meticulously prepared with Thailand herbs and spices, which the owner explained that they were imported from Thailand directly. Who doesn't know about Tom Yum Soup (S$8)? As usual, the soup comes with abundant seafood that fills the soup up to the brim. To my surprise, Baan Khun Nai's version of Tom Yum Soup seems to be a little towards the sour side, rather than extreme spicy. But for those non-spicy taker, probably don't try your luck with it because some of us managed to feel the spiciness after a few mouthfuls of delicious soup.The Olive Fried Rice (S$8) was nothing but fragrant. The fragrance that comes from the stir-fried olives caught many scooping spoonfuls of fried rice to their own plate. I like how the rice are prepared to a slight toughness. It wasn't too soggy nor moist.Another delectable dish was the Claypot Tung Hoon with prawns (S$16). The vermicelli has very much locked in the savoury taste from the soy sauce, giving it a brownish colour. Compared to the glass noodle salad, the vermicelli (Tung Hoon) is much softer and less crunchy, yet maintaining the moisture in it.All in all, I would say this is another favourite that night! The Dry Curry Pork (S$8) was incredibly tasty. It wasn't too liquid and the pork very much locked in the curry flavor, impressing all the meat and curry lovers out there. And lastly, the dessert. When we talk about dessert plus Thailand, we immediately think of Mango Sticky Rice. The Mango Sticky Rice at Baan Khun Nai was served very differently. The Mangos are slightly chilled, while the rice are thoughtfully heated up to a comfortable warmness. Put a piece of both into your mouth and enjoy the marriage of both temperate and sweetness.

East Coast Road is filled with so many eateries, cafes, bisstros and restaurants ranging from all different types of cuisine. However, did you know that there is an authentic casual dining restaurant where you can get value-for-money and delicious Thai cuisine?Over at Odeon Katong, there lies a hidden gem by the name of Baan Khun Nai headed by Thai Chef, Kwang. With the passion of bringing authentic Thai cuisine close to the hearts of many Singaporeans, she has jointly open this family-friendly casual restaurant to bring her signature dishes to us at a very wallet-friendly price.For starters, the delicious Grilled Pork with Thai Sauce ($11) makes a great appetizer as a finger food to nibble on. Accompanied by the secret Thai chilli dip made by Chef Kwang, it adds a new dimension of flavours to complement the smoky char-grilled pork slices. It was simply addictive and definitely goes well with beer as a snack too!I am a huge fan of Green Curry Chicken ($8) and this ones has a texture just right; not too diluted or rich. With crunchy eggplant, huge slices of chicken simmered in coconut curry, it has a lovely flavour which goes very well with my bowl of white rice. Oh, huge peas were added in too and there is a minty, uplifting after-taste of the green curry which can be an acquired taste for some. Coming to the Tom Yum Seafood Soup ($8), I love the generous amount of ingredients such as prawns, sliced fish, squid, straw mushrooms and tomatoes in it. I ordered the spiciness of level 1 chilli and the spice is pretty mild for most, leaning more to the sour side. However, it is recommended to order level 2 chilli for a good balance of flavour. I enjoyed this dish because it wasn't too oily as they did not use a lot of tom yum chilli oil. Ending my dinner on a sweet note, the Mango Sticky Rice ($6) surely can't be missed. The mangoes are naturally sweet and when eaten with the warm, moist and sticky glutinous rice topped with coconut cream, I was in seventh heaven right away. 1 dish is definitely not enough for me and I would re-visit Baan Khun Nai for more of this!The overall dining experience at Baan Khun Nai Authentic Thai Cuisine was a great one as I got to try the true blue flavour of dishes the way they are which reminded me of my visit to Bangkok. The service staff was very attentive to quickly refill our drinks when he saw that our glasses were running low. I have to give 2 thumbs up for this!It is a very relax and casual environment so even if you are not here for a meal, it is a perfect place to chill over some snacks and homemade drinks like their Thai Ice Tea or Lemongrass Tea perfect for detoxification. continue reading
