I saw this fairly new Thai establishment at Djitsun Ang Mo Kio and decided to skip my favourite hawker center behind for this restaurant. They serve a myraid of Thai food and also Thai mookata.
Seeing how my favourite neighbourhood Thai food place is Nakhon, I was excited to see if I can add another jaunt to my list.
This looks so promising but...
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHICKEN!!!!
Massive case of shrinkage here.
While it has a slightly interesting smoky flavour, the size of the chicken is SMALL UNTIL I CANNOT.
NAKHON VS THONGLOR
Both come with 4 pieces of chicken BUT look at the huge discrepancy in size. Obviously you can get more value for money at Nakhon,(and they also taste fab) which is now available almost everywhere.
GREEN CURRY CHICKEN
I was looking forward to this but sadly this has no kick. I also prefer the chicken to be in chunks rather than a whole drumstick, it's rather hard to eat the chicken with the curry while having to debone it. This curry is also too watery for my liking. Sadly I also prefer the version at Nakhon, packs more heat, is of thicker consistency and feels more shiok. The saddest thing is my in-law's maid can make an even better green curry than Thonglor's watered down version. Time to up your game man,
OLIVE FRIED RICE
This was one of the better olive fried rice I've had recently, but somehow the prawns tasted a little undercooked. If not for the undercooked prawns, I would say this olive fried rice is a little above Nakhon's standard. More refined and this definitely makes you think of Thailand.
In a Nutshell
Price Point: $$
Thumbs Up: Olive fried rice was good.
To Improve: Green curry is too watery. That pandan chicken portion is pathetically small.
Will I return: No
