family decided to try out lunch at nakhon kitchen at hollandv on 9.8.2015.^^
place opened at 12pm & don’t take reservations, and has reputation of long queues, and parking at hollandv at 12pm is usually horrendous. wife said 1/2 the people were away on national day (in this case maybe also because of the many SG50 festivities) and true enough, carpark was quite empty at 11.50am.
restaurant was also quite empty at 12pm but filled up soon enough.
no frills decor, no frills prices.
we ordered the mango salad.
the chicken wings were surprising very good.
tomyam talay (seafood) soup was competent, maybe nothing to comment i guess for S$6.
only 1 prawn so maybe so do tomyam gung next time instead of talay.
we all loved the red curry beef. it was really good! ^^
for me the red curry was patara’s standard.
the green curry chicken was much less good.
it was ok, but strangely it seemed much thicker & from the photos looked completely different from vibrant, yummy one at nakhon kitchen AMK. that one i finished up all the curries.
my son wanted the deepfried garoupa. i had some doubts it would turn up like the really excellent dish at patara. the server said it was a favourite dish here.
it was quite small. but it was quite good actually, so i didn’t mind it. but i thought i could do this easily at home, only have to conjure up the right sauce. 🙂
pad thai was just S$5.
it’s not my favourite dish, but it’s quite authentic here, not too sweet. overall quite good.
son ordered the basil minced beef rice.
we also had a S$5 mango sticky rice to share. did not take photo. anyway sticky rice not fragrant, a dish i could do without.
lunch for 4pax came to S$80, or S$20nett, no service, no GST.
must say it was a very authentic thai meal, quite shiok!
