Thai Tom Yam Rice Restaurant

Thailand Tom Yam Rice Restaurant is located at Channel Road, just opposite Sibu Central Market (beside SL Ling Pharmacy, a staircase will lead up to this restaurant). From the restaurant banner, they are specialized in Thai and Indonesian food.

The interior of the restaurant gives a coffee shop feeling. It is not air conditioned as I expected.

The wall in one corner of the restaurant is an eye sore and the owner should do something about it. Fresh paint on this section will be a good idea.

Food and drink menu (and each individual price) is display clearly inside and outside the restaurant. Notice the menu is written in Thai as well

We ordered Air Bandung (RM2) and Ice Lemon Tea (Rm1.70). I believe the drinks were overpriced.

All utensils were soaked in boiling/warm water. Closer look at the glass also indicate that this glass might come from Thailand as well.

Mixed Tom Yam soup (small, RM8). Shrimp, squid, chicken and tomato can be found in the soup. Hot and spicy.

Fried fish with vegetables (RM19.90). Taste good. A little bit hot and spicy.

Kangkong (RM5). This is probably the first time I ate this vegetables with pepper on it. Surprisingly, it tastes good.

Kailan and chicken (RM5). Satisfactory. A little bit hot and spicy.

In a nutshell, almost every meal here is cooked in hot and spicy manner. The cook is an Indonesian and been told the dishes had been cooked mildly hot. The cook can made it even hotter if we had requested. The truth is, I was begging for more water after finishing all the dishes.

Overall, the food served here are nice but the ambience of the restaurant is a letdown

The tom yam wok looking cool ;) Look like the tom yam is warming up with charcoal? I like the big prawn in there and really worth it @ RM8

i think it's very cheap and since it's delicious as u mentioned, it doesn't really matter about the ambience. :)

As some people have noted RM8 for tomyam is really cheap. But I do agree the drinks you ordered were overpriced.

It seems a good place for cheap and delicious meal. But I might not enjoy it as I have a low tolerance for hot and spicy foods.
