SIN: Siam Kitchen

Unique green curry paste fried rice?

UPDATE (26/04/2014): The branch at Suntec City Mall has closed down. Check out the other branches from their website.

Another restaurant managed by the Creative Eateries group, Siam Kitchen offers a plethora of traditional and modern Thai cuisine for diners. Pika's advice: Some of the branches offer buffet priced at S$20.90 per person. Do check it out!

Pandan Leaf Wrapped Chicken S$7.90
Taste: 6/10

I love pandan leaf wrapped chicken, but the one I tried in Siam Kitchen wasn't up to my expectation. Granted, the chicken was pretty tender, but there was hardly any pandan aroma that cling onto, let alone penetrate into, the chicken meat. I wasn't sure what the dark sauce on the side was, but it was midly sweet and sour.

Green Curry Paste Fried Rice with Chicken S$9.50
Taste: 6.5/10

It's claimed to be a must try dish as it's found only in Siam Kitchen. I'm not sure how true the statement is, but I wasn't really excited about it when I took a spoonful of the supposedly unique fried rice. First of all, the fried rice was a bit too wet for my liking. Besides that, while the balance of flavour was there with a nice hint of sweetness, I couldn't really detect the aroma of the green curry paste. Having said that, I'd like to commend the chef for putting curry leaves which were fried till crisp, adding another dimension to the dish.

Clear Tom Yum Hor Fun S$9.90
Taste: 7.5/10

The hor fun (Chinese flat rice noodle) dish, being visually appealing, had a nice smoky aroma. The soup was adequately thick without being overly sour, and it was only mildly spicy. In addition to seafood items such as squid, prawns and fish slices, there were a bit of mushrooms.

Siam Kitchen Grass Jelly Chendol with Azuki Red Beans S$6.50
Taste: 7.5/10

In my opinion, the green, jelly-like delicacy could be chewier. Nevertheless, the dessert was pretty refreshing, having red beans that weren't overly sweet and coconut milk that wasn't excessively thick either.

Thai Piña Colada S$4.90
Taste: 7.5/10

Sans alcohol, the drink was a combination of pineapple juice, fresh pineapple cubes and coconut ice cream. While they could be more generous with the amount of the ice cream, it was indeed a delight to mix it up to make a creamy drink.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7/10
Ambience: 7.5/10
Service: 7/10
Overall: 7/10

Overall, I wasn't particularly impressed with the food offered. I didn't put pad thai (Thai stir-fried rice noodle) into the acid test though, since I wasn't in the mood to eat that the other day.
