Looking through the menu, one could not help but notice the uncommon dishes such as Miang Kham and Kra Por Pla Phad Hang.

Yam Som O ($12+ small / $18+ medium)
Pomelo Salad
pomelo with minced pork, prawns and peanuts
I usually avoided pomelo as it usually tasted sour to me. But here it was juicy sweet, with the meat giving it a savoury taste too.

Miang Kham ($12+ small / $18+ medium)
Betel Leaf Wrap
thai betel leaf with dried shrimps, roasted peanuts, roasted coconut, chilli, lime, ginger and onions with a savoury dip
This dish was seldom found in the menu in Thai restaurants in Singapore, as lots of effort was needed to prepare the ingredients such as the finely roasted coconut. It was like having rojak in the mouth with the prawn paste taste, spicy chilli padi, nutty peanuts, fragrant coconut in it.

Panaeng Red Curry Roast Duck
panaeng red curry with roast duck, lychees and pineapples
The red curry was not as spicy as expected. It was rich and creamy, which made it nice to go with plain rice, with the juicy pieces of fruit giving it a burst of sweetness.

Neau Ribeye Black Angus Yang ($32+)
Pan Seared Black Angus Beef Ribeye
220g black angus ribeye beef accompanied with green curry sauce
It reminded one of steak served with béarnaise sauce when served, with the meat sliced into strips for easy handling. On its own, the meat was juicy and tender without overcooked. With the sauce, it was rich and creamy with a green curry aftertaste, which some may felt that it overwhelmed the original taste of the meat.

Fried Fish Maw with Beansprouts
stir fried beansprouts with fish maw and eggs
Fish maw was usually used in soup dishes, one seldom saw it in a stir fried dish. Although it was stir fried, it remained soft and spongy.

Sawadee Olive Fried Rice
stir fried olive rice with chicken strips, dried shrimps, lime and chilli
The purplish looking rice was fragrant on its own, served with sliced shallots, cubes of juicy sweet lime, crunchy dried shrimps, chopped spicy chilli padi, crunchy deep fried minced garlic. It was a party in the mouth with spicy, savoury, sweet flavours, plus the different textures.

Mao Shan Wang Durian Sticky Rice
premium durian mao shan wang with glutinous rice topped with sesame seeds
As Mao Shan Wang was not available, it was replaced with D24 durian puree. The durian puree was rich and creamy with taste more on the sweet and balanced off with the chewy sticky rice.

Red Ruby
water chestnut with jackfruit, coconut flesh and coconut milk
There was lots of liao in it, such as the red colored crunchy water chestnut, crunchy sea coconut, soft strips of jackfruit, and coconut flesh. It would be best to have this as soon as it was served as the shaved ice melted rather fast.

Butterfly Pea Flower Tea ($5.50+)
The drink was blue in color and served with lime juice by the side. When lime juice was added, the drink changed from blue to purple in color. The drink was more like a lemonade with slight tea taste in the aftertaste.

Dessert was mango sticky rice, served unconventionally. Serving seemed small but just nice for 2 pax after a filling meal. The sticky rice wasn't overly sweet and the mango was very riped, sweet, and juicy. 

Overall, it's worth a try

The presentation of the Thai otah was really cute. Taste-wise, it had a slight otah fragrance but wasn't spicy at all.

Was looking forward to this dessert! Some of the mango were slightly sour, but other than that it was okay...at least it satisfied my craving for a bit!

I didn't take photos of all the dishes, but there was also olive rice (so-so), fish maw soup which was not bad but really little, and deep-fried pomfret fillets which was really good. For the soup, we asked to have half changed to tom yam soup which wasn't spicy at all (and I'm very sensitive to spicy things). It was a huge let down considering how Thai food = tom yam soup. Another bad point is that their drinks are served in a really small portion. Just a few mouthfuls and it's all gone!

Tom Yum Seafood Soup

Freshly whipped up, pot was served in pipping hot. Significantly strong in flavour, soup was spicy-tangy while sharply sweet. Right balance of fiery sourness, strong note of lemongrass and lime leave was perfectly blended together. Seafood such as huge prawns, squids and fish were tenderly well-cooked. Tongue-numbing but very satisfying, portion was rather filling with a bowl of plain rice. The price was $15.00 for the soup, rather reasonable for me. It was really valuable to have a kick from savoury Tom Yum soup, sincerely and honestly.
