My foodie friends and I often crave for Thai food nowadays. Thus, we were very happy to see more casual Thai eateries sprouting across Singapore (Read: Porn’s, Flying Chillies, Thai Table).
Thai Table is located in the same stretch of eateries with Tian Tian Chicken Rice (Maxwell legend’s branch), Miss You Café , Momoya in Jalan Pari Burong. Thai Table is managed by the same owners as Momoya (who used to be the owners of Hanabi – see how volatile the F&B industry in Singapore is). Both the facade and interior of the restaurant look very rundown – the owners probably just took over the existing shop space without doing much renovations.
We went for the value worth ala-carte buffet – All dishes came in sharing portion dependent on your group size. The food arrived piping hot and tasted individually cooked (vs. mass cooked in some buffets). I will mention some of the hits and misses below.
STUFFED BONELESS CHICKEN WINGS - Very well marinated wings stuffed with vermicelli /shiitake mushroom/carrot fried to perfection. Fantastic wings but too bad we could only order this once. I’m so going to order this ala-carte with a few bottles of beer next time.
STIR FRIED THAI RICE NOODLES – The phad thai was flavorful and nicely done but something was missing – Peanuts and red chili peppers. Perhaps Thai Table was trying to do a “localized” version of the Thai staple.
THAI TABLE SPECIAL PRAWN CAKES, STIR FRIED PORK with hot basil sauce & PANDAN LEAVE CHICKEN (From left, anti clockwise) - The prawn cake is a MUST EAT. We could taste the fresh crunchy prawns vs. the typical seafood paste in every bite. On the contrary, the pork with basil sauce (one of my favorite Thai dishes) was disappointing – We could hardly taste the basil.
OMELETTE with prawn, POMELO SALAD, THAI SATAY & STIR FRIED KAILAN (From left, anti clockwise) – They were decently tasty but I would give the omelette a miss next time. It is a humongous egg pancake with prawn bits – Definitely not a good use of stomach space.
Thai Table is a great drinking hole too – 5 bottles of singha at $25nett? That’s unbeatable. For non-alcohol drinkers, try the Thai coconut (not included in buffet) or simply top up $2.5+ for free flow of homemade Thai ice tea/ice lemon tea/lemongrass.
Overall, Thai table exceeded my expectations – it’s one of the most value worth and scrumptious buffet I had for a long time. I will definitely return to try their Thai steamboat or set dinners!
