Value for money: 8/10
Cleanliness: 6/10
Service: 7/10
Quality of food: 7/10
Overall: 7/10

This isn’t Thai food, I am afraid to say. But, more a Taiwanese version of Thai food.
Unfortunately it was raining so heavily that I couldn’t take outside pictures…
Basically their entire set menu accounts for each person spending $300.
The dishes can easily be substituted, so if your Chinese is good enough, you can ask.
We went for Meal F, but we changed the 1st dish (Red thai chicken curry) to Beef curry.

Set Meal F – $600

1. 豆皮龍鬚菜 dòu pí lóng xū cài 
Tofu skin and gurka sprout stir fry

($200)
 

2. 咖哩牛肉 gā lí niú ròu 
Beef curry 
($200)

 

3. 泰式海鮮酸辣湯 tài shì hǎi xiān suān là tāng 
Thai style sweet and sour soup 
($200)

1. 豆皮龍鬚菜 dòu pí lóng xū cài 
Tofu skin and gurka sprout stir fry

($200)

 

Just the way I like it: fresh stir fried leaves with lots of garlic and tofu skin – delicious!

2. 咖哩牛肉 gā lí niú ròu 
Beef curry 
($200)

I had been craving a thai curry but didn’t want chicken, and this was the only one they could provide us with in the set. The result? A sub-par beef curry that was too oily.

3. 泰式海鮮酸辣湯 tài shì hǎi xiān suān là tāng 
Thai style sweet and sour soup 
($200)

I like a good hot and sour soup, but I must confess: the one I make is better 🙂

I did enjoy the shrimp/prawn a lot, though (2 shrimp/prawns per soup)

And, to be fair, there were some lovely big chunks of fresh fish which tasted alright, too.


The bottom line
If you want cheap Thai style food, go here. If you want authentic Thai food, don’t go here.
