It’s hard to think of another place with quite the same character as Tom Yum Kungfu. Situated on Maju Ave just metres from the Serangoon Gardens Country Club, Tom Yum Kungfu is only matched in Singapore by its sister restaurant in Boat Quay. A cool contemporary joint decked out with retro 80’s-video-game mosaics and blasting Thai pop, it has an atmosphere that wouldn’t befit a traditional and first-rate restaurant. But that’s exactly what it is, and there is no better illustration of this than Tom Yum Kungfu’s famous mookata. Mookata is certainly nothing unique in Singapore, but proper authentic charcoal mookata, with a double-decker grill structure that looks like a UFO and somehow creates a distinctive taste, really is. The food is superb, the atmosphere cool, and the location ideal – though this combination makes it far from a secret, so book as early as you can to nab a spot.
Quirky deco. Mookata always make the family happy. A generous portion of meat and vegetables with a good soup stock. We had tom yum and chicken soup both tasty. The freshness of the food is pretty consistent in all our visits there
Must opt for the upgrade set as it comes with a flat grill surface and wider soup pot which makes cooking much easier. Overall meat is good, tasty soup and nice interior :) Been coming to Tom Yum Kung Fu for my mookata fix for the last 3 years.
