Brunei Hidden Gems: Authentic Thai Restaurant in Bandar
My wife has been telling me about this special authentic Thai restaurant in Bandar that is highly regarded by the working community in Bandar. I must admit I've heard about this restaurant before from others but never got the time to check it out myself - but since my foodie wife highly recommends it - I decided it should be worth a shot to try out this place.
One look at that Green Curry Chicken and you know you're in for a real deal!
How authentic is this Thai restaurant? Well - for starters - they don't have English menus -- only Thai menu ~ LOL ~~ you can't get more authentic than that in Brunei!
Most people come here for their Tom Yum Noodles and Thai Beef Noodles
If you love beef noodles - then you are in for a treat - a sweet and salty beef broth with slices of beef, beef tripe and beef tendon. I find it a tad too salty but my friends love this Thai style beef soup noodles.
A glimpse of the Tom Yum Soup ~~ look at the coriander root, kaffir lime leaves amongst the herbs for this tasty tom yum!
I have to say - The Tom Yum Noodles are pretty good and I love that they are pretty generous with the herbs used in the soup - double thumbs up from me!
On to their Pad Thai - I have to say this is my favourite Pad Thai in Brunei - the texture - the flavour - spot on! I couldn't stop eating this!
Did I mention how gorgeous their Green Curries looked? *SOOO GOOOD*
A good green papaya salad som tum goes a long way - refreshing with the other dishes we have here.
My Thai friend says their Basil Beef or Basil Chicken rice is really good as well - so be sure to try it the next time you're here!
Note: Food might take some time as they are cooked to order - so be patient and you will be rewarded with awesome Thai food!
Now - the location of this restaurant is at Wisma Jaya - 2nd Floor. Wisma Jaya is the building that is opposite HSBC (the same building where AIA insurance is)
