It's been a while since we had Thai cuisine and after walking around Publika @ Solaris Dutamas, we decided to give this Thai Restaurant, ala Thai, a try.
For starters, we had a bowl of clear tom yum soup, with oyster mushrooms. I find the soup a bit too sour, but was not too bad. Unlike the usual red tom yum soup, this is not very spicy.
For mains, KS ordered the Pineapple Fried Rice while I ordered the Phad Thai Noodle. One thing worth mentioning is that you are allowed to specify the level of spiciness you want - how thoughtful.
The Pineapple Fried rice was quite nice and fragrant with lots of chunky pineapples. I like how they prepared this dish and used turmeric spices (kunyit) in moderation without overwhelming the flavours of the fried rice.
The Phad Thai Noodle is also delicious and not too oily. I like how the dried shrimps adds a nice saltiness to the sweet noodles. The only complain I have is that the strong fishy smell it came along, probably due to the dried shrimps not washed properly. Otherwise, the Phad Thai would be close to perfect.
For desserts, we ordered the Thai Cendol and Pumpkin Custard. Nothing special to shout about although I felt it was a little bit disappointing.
The restaurant is pretty warm and cosy. I totally love the ambience, with its nice decorations. On top of that, being on higher grounds, it was quite breezy if you dine outdoors. Service is also very good and they waiters are very polite.
