ViewDee Thai Bistro & Bar @ Sprout Hub - Great Chill Out Place With Delicious Thai Food At Former Henderson Secondary School


Taking over the space at Sprout Hub is ViewDee Thai Bistro & Bar, transforming the former Henderson Secondary School's canteen into little Thailand with neo lights and stalls selling Thai-centric cuisine. The huge and airy premise is an excellent location for chilling out with friends over drinks and delicious Thai food. The huge selection of Thai dishes also caters for a hearty family dinner.

Signature Lobster Tom Yum Mama 4/5

Great for sharing is the Signature Lobster Tom Yum Mama ($48.80). Besides the majestic lobster, there is other seafood, such as squid, mussels and clams. It is very enjoyable. However, the tom yum soup was too sweet. A bit more balance in the soup would be preferred. There is even a hearty seafood porridge version that is ideal for the rainy weather.

Royal Thai Fish Head Hot Pot 4.5/5

Something uncommon on the menu is the Royal Thai Fish Head Hot Pot ($48.80). The creamy soup base is packed with robust flavour, complemented by ingredients such as tofu, mushrooms, seafood and yam and vegetable. It is non-spicy, hearty and comforting.

Green Papaya Salad $11.80

Besides the sharing tom yum mama and hotpot, the kitchen woks up an eclectic selection of Thai dishes. We started with the Green Papaya Salad ($11.80), whetting the appetite. The sharp flavours and the salad's crunchy texture make it an appetising starter.

Waterfall Deep Fried Pork Belly 4.5/5

The Waterfall Deep Fried Pork Belly ($15.80) is a favourite of mine and the dining group. The deep-fried pork belly is succulent and crispy on the skin. However, the soul of the dish goes to the sweet, sour and spicy sauce that elevates the taste profile to a whole new level.

Thai Style Kang Kong 4.2/5

Basil Minced Pork 4.2/5

The Thai Style Kang Kong ($12.80) and Basil Minced Pork ($15.80) are two items I often order at a Thai restaurant. Both are well executed in the way I like. I understand Thai chefs cook the dishes, and they don't hold back or tone down the flavours. That is why I enjoyed their cooking.

Thai Style Steamed Seabass 3.8/5

Another dish I enjoyed is the Thai Style Steamed Seabass ($38.80). The fish was moist and fresh, cooked in a sweet, sour and spicy sauce, the characteristic flavours in Thai cuisine. However, being picky, the chef is slightly heavy-handed on the sweetness.

Flaming Pork Knuckle 3.5/5

The Flaming Pork Knuckle ($38.80) made an impressive entrance lighted in flame. Served bone-in, it is crispy on the skin with fork-tender meat. It comes with three dipping sauces for full enjoyment.

Tom Yum Seafood Pizza 2.5/5

The menu even includes western fare, such as pizza and burgers. We tried the Tom Yum Seafood Pizza ($19.80). The flavours reconciled with me, but I was not fond of the dough. It tastes like instant dough.

Beer Gao

ViewDee Thai Bistro & Bar is a great place to chill over delicious Thai food. Besides the usual beer tower or liquors, you can get Beer Gao here, a combo of Stout and Lager.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
