Siam Krua Thai Review

We dined at Siam Krua Thai, Lim Ketkai Drive, Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City. We were warmly welcomed and entertained as we entered the restaurant. The crew greeted us in Thai I suppose which I didn't really understand, and didn't reply. 

Siam Krua Thai experience? This was not my first time to dine in the restaurant, but it's my first time to have its review. First, what did we order? 

To additionally (because we already had our Starbucks session) clench our thirst, we had the four seasons juice. Alright they call it "Tropical Slush"! :-)

 Then the Tom Yum (Yam)? was served by the waiter. He served it on our soup bowls. Maybe he reckoned we're going to fight over the soup? Haha so to be fair, he's going to divide it for us! LOL! Well, that's great service though. Not that we can't do it, but it's how they do it here.

Maybe it's just my taste, but it didn't impress me, it's somehow short of being spicy. The sourness of the soup is more evident in the taste than it being hot and spicy. I can taste the sour tomato and tamarind (I guess) which did not suit much for my taste. But the prawn was greatly cleaned and tasted well if removed from the soup and eaten separately. :-)

Add to the fun of Tom Yum experience the reaction of my colleague Ms. H. 

Then we also ordered Chicken in Green Curry.  I do love curry so this is so-so, not really that outstanding but well, it's good enough.

Then we had vegies! Mixed Vegies or commonly known ChopSuey! Haha Mixed Fried Vegies they'd call it. Ordinarily cooked fried vegetables with mushrooms. Again, it did not awe me. But I did eat more of these. 
And of course these are the creatures who tried out the Siam Krua Thai Restaurant! 
Mr. R.R, Yours Truly, Chef F, and Ms. H.
If I would rate Siam Krua Thai would be the following:

Service: 4/5. It would have been 5/5 but the diminishing factor was their servers lacked product knowledge, just happened that the one who asked was a Chef, so it's a disappointment. We also asked a favor to take a picture and we were not immediately attended to, as if our request was not part of their job. 
Ambiance: 4.5/5 Was great! But Mr. RR noticed something that needs proofreading. But the place is great! 
Food: 2.5/5 It barely passed my standard. Or maybe we picked the wrong food? But yeah, it didn't satisfy our taste buds that much. 
Price: 3.5/5 Reasonable. Not too expensive but not cheap.

For more of their menu and prices you can browse them below, I happen to take some snapshots of the menu so you would have an idea how much you would spend when you try the restaurant. Maybe you'd try some other food than those we've tried.

Share with me your Siam Krua Thai experience. Feel free to live your idea on the comments box below! :-)
