Nice ambience, and lovely colonial building, but the food at Jim Thompson is lackluster, far from authentic, and depressingly watered down. Notwithstanding the abysmal fare, the restaurant was still a full-house on a mid-week evening. Packed with business-types.
We had:
1) Goong Hom Sabai ($20): mushy prawns swaddled in a rice paper and yellow egg noodles, and deep-fried to oblivion. The tasty plummy chilli dip did little to save the overdone appetizer.
2) Khao Phad Nam Lieb ($20) - rice fried with black olives and minced chicken, sided by raw shallots, lime dice, cashews, and chillis: one of two dishes that actually passed muster, this had a good amount of flavour and char.
3) Gaeng Panang Neau ($24) - panang curry with Australian beef tenderloin, coconut cream, and crushed peanuts: the other commendable dish, but it would have been better served piping hot, instead of tepid.
4) Phad Grapow Gai ($22) - stir-fried minced chicken with straw mushrooms, garlic, birds eye chilli, and holy basil: should have been punchy but it was disappointingly vapid.
5) Pla Ga Pong Daeng Thod Gra Tiem ($22) - deep-fried red snapper fillets blanketed in an gooey garlic sauce: let down by the less than sparkling fresh fish. The muddy taste of the fish overwhelmed the lovely sauce
