Suan Thai @ Liang Court

An email was bouncing around a few friends to meet up for dinner. After a few bounces, we settled on trying Suan Thai at the newly refurbished Liang Court.

We were tempted with the 28 diff dishes at $20.99 ++ on Mon-Thu for the Standard Menu. (There's a Budget and a Standard menu with $3 difference) We also asked if there's any difference between the dishes served if they are a-la-carte. Yes we were told. If you order a-la-carte, there's more spices and herbs in the dishes, the buffet ones they omit some of it. Hmm... anyway, we just took the buffet. :-)

We tried to try most things in the menu, maybe around 75% of it only. We had I think it was 8 of us, but we ordered things for 4 persons portion for most of it. We did not want to stuff ourselves silly.

Lighting's a bit too 'romantic', so many photos came out blur. Here's some of them.

The Green Mango Salad. Quite good.

Some of the items on the menu had an asterisk. This meant it can only be ordered once.
This Thai Style Chicken Satay is one of the order once item.

We realised that the dishes with asterisk all taste better. But too bad, they are all 'ordred once' item. sigh...

We had a friend who is a lala lover. We had many orders of this. LOL...

The Tomyam soup's quite nice too. It was fun to meet up with this bunch of friends.

Oh, we had a surprise birthday for one of our friends. We bought a few pieces of cakes from Canele and the staff at Suan Thai was kind enough to give us candles. Happy Birthday SY!

I think if you order a-la-carte the food would be better and tastier too :-)
On the buffet menu, there were asterisk dishes, which means order only once. Those were really good. The ones without asterisk were so-so.
