I’d been hearing about this cheap Thai Food place and most of my foodie colleagues is recommending to try this out. So here’s my review.
The place is hard to find, it is in Rockwell Gilid 🙂 I wouldnt know how to get into that side street entrance until you will see it outside the gate of Rockwell and take a U turn on the same road and turn right at that sharp corner before the Rockwell Entrance Gate. The place is like a carinderia with modest uniform servers, which is really nice. There are few tents outside serving customers who smokes or feel the ambiance of Rockwell Gates.
The food is average. It is the value anyway and the servings size is good for 3 to 4 pax, but since I’d been to Thailand, the taste is a bit far from what I expected. I am a real fan of Thai Fish cakes, and their version is totally odd. The Yellow Crab version is not really the big crab but just the regular white lanky crabs, however the sauce is really good, since I like curry-sweet-chili taste.
The Thai Iced Tea is obviously sweet, just go get a glass of ice and fill it up and enjoy it.
Overall, it is a diverse Thai food selection, Taste is okay, depends on your food trips, either its seafoods, pork or beef. It is not comparable to common Thai Food Place like Jajutak or Peoples Palace. However, you’ll surely get a full stomach with 50% authenticity that it’s a Thai food 🙂
Will I go back? Maybe. It is too hard to find a parking space in that street.
