    was it just me, or this outlet is really different? I always thought that thai express, being "express", have very few choices... but we actually find a lot here. (although I thought the thai green laksa looks very much the same as the thai green curry...)

    Our orders for the night was crayfish thai green laksa and thai green curry with rice. My laksa was alright, although I thought the green laksa was a bit hotter (just a bit) than the usual green curry I have elsewhere (maybe that's the diff between green laksa and green curry). And they really put the chilli (thick ones) slices into the laksa.

    When we finish, one of the staff saw us looking at the promotion signs on the table and intro to us, their inhouse promotion card. It actually allows 10% discount of your meals, on the day you buy the card, along with a few vouchers for subsequent use. What a good deal, if we had come in a big gang.

    Oh, the place was big, so although the place looks packed, we could still get a seat fairly easy despite a queue of 3-5 tables before us.

    The prices were affordable, but for the feel and decor of the place (more of students hangout place) and the food ingredients, I do think it is a little overpriced.

    This thai express outlet has something different from the rest of its outlets, something that i did not find them in other thai express outlets. And that is they actually offer steamboat in their menu, to be more exact, its actually tom yam steamboat. Since tom yam is one of the thai specialty, we decided to just have to try this out.

    Whenever we tried steamboat, it was almost in buffet style all the time. But this time round, this steamboat is actually a one time affair. One will not be able to have second round of it. :P

    This steamboat portion wasn't really that big and the served ingredients wasn't too interesting either, one can find the usual fare like chicken slices, fish slices, calarmaris, prawns, mushrooms and tang hoon. No rice was served with this steamboat. However, one can request for a bowl of rice for less than a dollar.

    I was pretty amazed by the flavour of their tom yam soup, it tasted simply great. The sourish and spicy taste of the soup is neither too empowering in either side and tasted just right. Good and its really not as spicy as it looks. To better suit each individual taste, they even catered a bowl of spices (consists of lemon grass, chillis, etc) for its customers, so that one can add them into their soup to create the perfect taste for themselves. Thumbs up!

    Service wise, personally i feel that they are quite good. Not only are they aware of their customers's needs- constantly clearing the finished plates to ensure sufficient table space for its customers and constantly refilling water for their customers. They are also willing to fufill their customer's needs. Take for example, when we asked for a change of the ingredients in the steamboat, they immediately swopped it for us without asking us why.

    For now, they are having some promotion with the credit cards, if one spent over 30 bucks, you can get a plate of toufu square free. Personnally, i simply loved the texture of their toufu square - a crispy layer with silky soft hot inner toufu. Together with the sweet sour sauce, it simply tasted marvellous. Try them out.

      Was there over the weekend and was excited to see them selling mini steamboat! And only at $13.80 each! So we went in to try. When we set down, we somehow concluded that the steamboat idea might have came to mind when they saw they neighbor selling hotpots. (But this is just our presumption lah)

      The mini steamboat comes with Tom Yam Soup and a plate of fresh ingredients such as prawns, slice fish, sotong (squid), mushrooms, and tang hoon.

      The tom yam soup is spicy and sour. Taste was not bad. Drinking tom yam while its boiling hot is super shiok! This mini steamboat is good for 2 to share. As we were not hungry, and just needed something to fill out tummy, this pot of tom yam was good enough.
