Tonight is the second night in a row that I have been greeted with a sheepish smile by the first staff I meet at the eatery, with the staff able to call me by my name… It seems like all of my Hillgrove Students are out working as service staff to make some extra cash after their graduating examinations. The one tonight even asked me for advice on which course he should take in ITE! Interesting, I wonder what God is trying to tell me these few days..

Anyway, sadly, the food tonight wasn’t as good as the food yesterday. The standards at this outlet haven’t been very consistent, to say the least. When we first came, it was terrible. Then, the last few times, it got better. Today, it was back to terrible.

Well at least the seafood salad was nice, and my wife’s prawn omelette rice was nice, although a little too salty this time.

My Red Tom Yum Fish soup was too milky… tasted really different from the last time. The sago in the desert too sticky, with a funny taste. Even the green curry balls were not as nice as before.

I’ll be thinking twice about coming back to this outlet. So far the Thai Express at Holland Village seems to be the most reliable and consistent outlet in terms of its food.


Seafood Salad: 8/10

Prawn Omelette Rice: 8/10

Red Tom Yum Fish Set: 4/10

Service: 7/10 (The good thing is that now they serve water in a big jug beside your table for easy refills!)
