(New) Soi Thai Soi Nice: Literally So Thai, So Nice & So Affordable


Soi Thai Soi Nice...

It’s been awhile since I had good and cheap Thai food in Singapore. The more affordable and more authentic Thai restaurant, which I know of, are mostly found in Golden Mile Complex – often known as Little Thailand. But if you are staying in the West, travelling all the way down to Golden Mile Complex to get your Thai cravings fixed would be quite a hassle.

Taking over the space by Atmosphere Bistro previously, Soi Thai Soi Nice is a new and very affordable Thai restaurant at Alexandra Central Shopping Mall. Their value-for-money set menu has indeed drawn in quite a fair bit of office crowd during lunch and also huge group of families during weekends evening despite being located in an unfamiliar shopping mall. I was particularly drawn by their mouth-watering Royal Thai Hot Pot which until now is still deeply ingrained in my mind. 

I was really amazed by the food at Soi Thai Soi Nice. Even though all the chefs are from Thailand, they spent quite a fair bit of time tuning the food to suit the local taste buds without losing so much of the Thai flavour and essence. In frame, my favourite Royal Thai Hot Pot and some of their popular dishes - Yum Kai Dhao (Fried Egg Salad), Pla Kra Pong Phad Kun Chai (Sliced Fish with Celery), Kai Jiao Cha Om (Fried Omelette with Thai herb Cha Om), Ka Nar Moo Krob (Bangkok style Stir Fry Kai Lan with Roasted Pork in Oyster Sauce) and Kho Moo Yang (Grilled Pork Neck). Yes, my Thai cravings have absolutely been solved! I am a happy man now!

Royal Thai Hot Pot // $68 (4 Pax)
This was sensational and mind-blowing, both to the eyes and mouth! I still couldn’t get over on how delicious this was! Similar to the Korean Army Stew, this Thai rendition is more flavourful and more addictive. The Tom Yum Soup was so addictive that I lost count on the number of bowls I drank. It wasn’t very spicy but the kick comes right at the end, just like an adrenaline rush, forcing you to take another sip. The aroma alone can caused you to drool! Besides the astonishing soup, they were also very generous in the portion of ingredients they include in the Hot Pot. My favourite, hands down, goes to the super fresh crayfish and succulent pork belly. The noodles are definitely not enough because all of us were fighting for it. So, you can either add more noodles or order a few bowls of rice. But if I were you, I will order both. Also, the Tom Yum Soup is refillable! A must-order when you visit them! You won’t regret!

Other than the Royal Thai Hot Pot, Soi Thai Soi Nice also offers an extensive range of delectable side dishes as seen in the following:

Yum Kai Dhao (Fried Egg Salad) // $6.80
This was a great appetiser! The ingredients complemented with one another very well – sweet, sour, and a little bit of crunchiness (from the cashew nuts). 

Ka Nar Moo Krob (Bangkok Style Stir Fry Kai Lan with Roasted Pork in Oyster Sauce) // $8.80
To my surprise, the sauce wasn’t as heavy as what it looks like. It paired very well with the Kai Lan (no bitter aftertaste) as well as the roasted pork. The only thing that I thought could me improved would be the crunchiness of the roasted pork.

Kai Jiao Cha Om (Fried Omelette with Thai Herb Cha Om) // $7.80
Some people may detest the smell and taste of Thai Herb Cha Orm but you know what, I liked it. It did not smell bad but I thought it added an extra fragrance to the seemingly simple egg dish. Let me know if you share the same sentiment as me.

Kho Moo Yang (Grilled Pock Neck) // $9.80
I was never a fan of neck meat because it was, to me, harder. This was surprisingly alright. The meat was firm but not too hard. It was also very flavourful.

Pla Kra Pong Phad Kun Chai (Sliced Fish with Celery) // $13.80
The sweet-sour sauce was well-balanced and the fish slices were crispy. Overall, a great combination!

Also, Soi Thai Soi Nice serves classic and popular Thai desserts!

Red Ruby

I Team (Coconut Ice Cream with Corn Flakes in Palm Sugar) // $3.80

Kao Niao Ma Muang (Mango Sticky Rice) // $5.80
Classic Thai Dessert which will never go wrong!
