Although the server forgot one dish which we ended up cancelling, Food was good and authentic! They helped us to keep our cake for our birthday celebration too.
nice ambience and considered quite authentic. What I like is some of cuisine quite unique and only can be found in this restaurant. Also good to select spicy level.
Excellent service with delicious food. Totally enjoyed the steam sea bass and garlic slipper lobster. Coconut pudding was excellent too! Special shout out to the service crew of Noom, Mico! Thank you very much!
Sumptuous authentic thai Cuisine highly recommended. Reasonable pricing and good location. Staffs are friendly and helpful. However if add on bells on individual table, it will be ideal for prompt response require from service staffs.
Heard alot of this restaurant and the fact that it's very authentic in food standards. At the entrance, you are greeted by Thai staff, so that's nice. There's free wifi. Don't forget to check-in to get a free iced thai milk tea or lemongrass to be collected at their sister cafe, Dink Dink on the ground floor. You can get the voucher for the drink after making payment on your way out. Food quality 1) Pad Thai, alright, though the noodles were transparent and a tad too oily for me. 2) Baan Ying Stuffed Tofu skin , made with prawn and pork meat, the tofu skin was crispy but the insides were a bit tough for my liking. The sauce was sweet, kind of like sour plum which was nice. 3) String Beans with minced meat and egg, probably my favourite dish, goes well with rice! Loads of minced meat 4) Baan Ying Fry sticky rice with Pork Neck, loved the fatty pork neck and the rice was flavourful. FYI , they charge 50 cents for wet tissue, so if you don't use it, just return it back to them at the counter.
You can choose the level of spiciness of spicy food here. Their “normal” is very spicy to my standard. So, if you cannot handle too much spiciness, go for less spicy. The thai milk tea is just nice for me and not too sweet. It soothes my burning tongue.
The service manager was rather cold in welcoming guests at the entrance but luckily the serving staff was okay in their service. Food served was not hot enough. Certain dishes like garlic prawns and tofu skin wraps were on the oily side. The restaurant iwas bright and cheerful and it offered a comfortable culinary experience.
Taste was average. Guess I had higher expectations. We had a salad appetizer, 3 mains and a soup. Drinks for all 3 parties. Bill was over $100... Upon leaving we requested for a glass of warm water and was told $1.50! The waitress then tried to up sell instead- how about today’s special: coconut jelly? To me that was a little disappointing...
Cosy, casual ambience. Suitable for simple family and friends gathering. Not so for special occasions. Food pretty good. The crab omelette is nice. We didn’t like one of the recommended items though - mushrooms with mussels curry.
Lovethe tangy mince meat that accompanied the deep fried morning glory salad and the crabmeat curry also stood out amongst all the dishes that we ordered. Would revisit to try the other items on the menu.
