today I am going to put up yet another food review again. I have done a review of Sakon Thai Restaurant on my previous website before, but because of a strong demand for a repost, here’s the LATEST and UPDATED review.
Address of Sakon Thai: Blk 152 Serangoon North Ave 1, #01-304
Contact Number: +65 6288 8225 (you can call and make a reservation, peak periods are usually from 7PM onwards)
Baby and I have dined at this popular Thai restaurant for 3 times already and the food served here has never once failed us. What is probably so attractive about dining at this restaurant is the affordability and value-for-money dining experience. However, for all of our visits to the same outlet at Serangoon North, their utensils are always not washed properly and hence, this is quite a turn off for those of us who are pretty particular about hygiene. Service level was slightly above average as most of the service staffs are from Thailand (Thai people are really friendly and they attend to people really well).
The Dishes That We Ordered From All Of Our Visits:
Sakon Thai Restaurant
Sakon Thai Restaurants serves really good AUTHENTIC THAI FOOD at really affordable prices!
Ambience of the Restaurant
The restaurant has a pretty cosy kind of ambience. Great for dining in big groups or with family members.
Porcelain Wares Used for Sauces
From what I understand, neighbourhood restaurants seldom use Porcelain Wares to serve condiments due to the expensive price, but Sakon Thai does it and this probably increases the visual appeal of the dishes they serve.
Stuffed Chicken Wings *MUST TRY*
The Stuffed Chicken Wings is a dish you MUST TRY although the waiting time for it can be quite long. The chicken is soft and tender and as you sink your teeth into it, you will realise that the chicken is actually boneless and that the meat is stuffed with wholesome chestnuts. It’s worth the wait!
Spicy Mango Salad
Honestly, I didn’t really fancy this dish as it was pretty spicy and the mango salad was way too sour for my liking. I still prefer the one that is served at ThaiExpress.
Tom Yum Seafood Clear Soup
It is incomplete to have a Thai meal without Tom Yum Soup and so we ordered one and boy, it tasted really good. For me, I find that the spicyness of the soup was just right and the seafood they added, such as prawns, sotongs, sliced fish meats were very fresh. You can have a choice of thick soup or clear soup and for your information, thick soup is more spicy than clear soup.
Thai Pineapple Fried Rice
The Thai Pineapple Fried Rice is probably quite similar in taste as those which I tried in other restaurants but I like the fact that Sakon Thai’s Pineapple Fried Rice is served with meat floss, making the dish slightly sweet-tasting to complement the sour taste of the pineapple.
Honey Chicken with Egg Rice
The next time I visit Sakon Thai, I would probably order this dish for myself because when I had a bite of the honey chicken, it tasted heavenly. The honey chicken was juicy, tender, and sweet. I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this dish.
Phad Thai Chicken
When I ate this dish, it really reminded me of my two Thai friends who once cooked the same dish as well. The taste was really authentic and the serving was pretty generous. What I probably didn’t quite like was the chicken as it was overcooked.
Thai Red Ruby Dessert
The first time I tried the Red Ruby Dessert at ThaiExpress, I quite like it and hence decided to try out the Red Ruby that is served at Sakon Thai. The Red Ruby served at Sakon Thai is not that sweet (for those who are limiting their intake of sugar, this could be quite a welcoming dessert) and the taste is just right. However, the coconut ice-cream served was pretty much melted so I didn’t quite like it. Personally, I still fancy the Red Ruby that’s served at ThaiExpress.
Thai Iced Tea
The Thai Ice Tea wasn’t that fantastic because it has a rather odd burnt taste. So, we don’t recommend this one unless you have spare cash and want to try it out. Sakon Thai serves ice-water at no additional charge.
Overall Dining Experience?
Sakon Thai is worth checking out. From all our visits to Sakon Thai, our average bill per person is no more than $20 and to me, that really is great value for an authentic taste of Thai food. What’s more, they don’t charge the 10% service charge as well. So, the next time you are craving for some authentic Thai Food and you are around Serangoon, do remember to try Sakon Thai!
