Ah Loy Thai Restaurant at Shaw Towers
By Editor | Updated on March 22, 2016
With two locations to serve you (Shaw Towers and Tampines Mall), Ah Loy Thai is definitely the place if you are looking for a nice Thai restaurant. The original outlet at Shaw Towers has been expanded by merging with a unit next door to hold more fans of Thai food. Ah Loy Thai continues to impress diners with good food at very affordable prices.
Addictive Butter Calamari: Butter Calamari is one of the signature dishes of Ah Loy Thai, which usually runs out soon. As its name would suggest, the dish is prepared in the way that calamari is deep fried to a light, golden crunch then coated with butter and spicy chilli sauce. The sauce makes this dish more heavenly.
Menu is simple, yet it offers equally good dishes: Ah Loy Thai has a very small menu, which could be listed on one page. Nonetheless it is also an advantage because this kind of menu enables the chefs to keep things under control to deliver consistent and equal quality to each dish on offer. Besides Butter Calamari, other dishes like Pandan Chicken, Tom Yum, Green Curry, Pad Thai, Thai Crispy Mango Chicken, and Pineapple Fried Rice are all delicious.
