Suanthai A-La-Carte Buffet

Magnetized by the $13.90++ budget Buffet spread offered by Suanthai Restaurant, we decide to lunch at their Liang Court basement outlet.

Let's find out for ourselves is the meal worth it, or is it just a gimmick?

Tom Yam Soup with Chicken ***

Green Mango Salad *****

Deep Fried Beancurb with Thai Sauce ***

Appetizers also consists of Pomelo Salad, Thai Spring Roll and Thai Fish Cake. Do give the Spring Roll a miss and go for the Thai Fish Cake instead.

Beef with Basil Leaves *****

Thai Style Chicken Satay ***** (limit to 1 time order only)

Chicken Wrapped in Pandan Leaves ***** (limit to 1 time order only)

The 2 items that's limited to 1 time order were evidently good. Alas, servings were kept to a miserable 1 piece per pax :(

Beef Stir Fried with Cashew Nuts ***

The Beef slices were toughly over cooked but i enjoyed the dish as it reminds me of my favourite Sweet & Sour Pork cooking.

Buffet Dessert Table of Mixed Fruits.

Thai Red Ruby ***

Tapioca with Coconut Milk **

Frustrations are in for you folks who love Thai Tapioca dessert as it was stiffly under-cooked. The milky Red Ruby and sweet ripe fresh Fruits platters though make up for the discontentment.

This buffet is an overall hit with its particularly low pricing of satisfactory Thai cooking. Paying a price of 3 course set lunch for a 22 dishes buffet - the thought is more than flattering.

Misses in the buffet would be tasting dishes made up of substandard Fish Fillet and dull tasting Chicken pieces. But it's especially easy to pick on food once you are bloated... so forgive me pls :)
