Sa-wa-dee-kap! Feast@East at Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore brings Thai cuisine favourites to their buffet line for a limited period from 18 October 2013 to 3 November 2013. Diners can look forward to being transported to the land of smiles, savouring the exciting flavours of Thai cuisine.

IMG_9443ed Yam Som Oh 4.2/5

Be warned the Yam Som Oh or Pomelo Salad was really very spicy for most of the diners at my table. I actually liked that fiery kick from the salad with the fruity taste of the pomelo lending a cooling effect to the burning tongue.

Som Tam 3/5

The Som Tam or Green Papaya Salad on the other hand was less impressive. While it had textures, it was missing the signature spicy and sour tastes in a papaya salad.

Thai Prawn Cake 4/5

Deep Fried to a nice golden brown, the Thai Prawn Cake will be loved by both the young and old. The prawn cake was crispy on the outside and when paired with the sweet chilli sauce accentuated the whole enjoyment.

Tom Yam Goong 3/5

We all agreed that the Tom Yam Goong was the weakest link of the sumptuous lunch. It was unfortunately that the fresh ingredients were missing a spicy broth that will make one break into a sweat.

Stir Fried Chicken 3/5

The Stir Fried Chicken with cashew nut and dried chilli was quite well executed. The chicken was tender and the cashew nut gave the dish a nice nutty flavour.

Deep Fried Seabass in Thai Chilli 4/5

The classic Deep Fried Seabass in Thai Chilli was cooked perfectly. The fish was moist and it was quickly stripped to its bare bone.

Red Curry Beef 4/5

The Red Curry Beef may not have used the best cut of the cow but it was still quite tender. In Thai cuisine, red curry is actually not spicy. It is more to the sweet side. The whole dish was well executed. Goes perfectly with a bowl of rice.

Goong Ka Pao 4/5

The Goong Ka Pao or Stir Fried Prawn with Thai Basil was fresh and succulent.  The bouncy flesh of the prawn was nicely coated with a delectable sweet sauce.

Pad Grappo Moo 4/5

Ususally the Pad Grappo Moo is eaten with a plate of rice and sometime topped with a fried egg. Having it alone was quite salty but the plate of minced pork was not short of the 3 fundamental tastes of spicy, sweet and sour in Thai cuisine.

Stir Fried Eggplant with Basil 4/5

The Stir Fried Eggplant with Basil was cooked beautifully still having a bit a crunch to it. It was not mushy.

Pad Thai 4/5

One of the staple dishes for Thai Cuisine is the Pad Thai. The delectable plate of stir fried noodle was worth spending a couple more hours on the treadmill, burning off those calories.

Dessert 4.2/5

Complete the feast on a high with some mouth watering sweet Thai desserts. I got to try the Thai Deep Fried Banana Fritter, Thai Glutinous Rice with Mango, Mocked Jackfruit with Feet, Glutinous Rice Fingers with Palm Sugar and Tako. My favourite was the Fried Banana Fritter for the sweet chewy texture. It reminded me of the Chinese snack, fried butterfly fritter but this will banana inside instead of red bean paste.
