Having been an expat for the last decade or so, I, however, regularly return to Sweden. Cannot help but notice how the Thai cuisine has gone the same way as the Chinese. Increased competition, popularity and price pressure, has changed Thai food in Sweden. It started out fresh, with genuine flavors, some complexity, and ok ingredients. Krua Thai is a place I've known for many,many years, but that I haven't visited for some time. It used to be pretty good, and a popular lunch place. Back in Malmo, I went for a Sunday lunch a la carte. The latter, I thought, would mean a higher quality meal.
Red curry with chicken, supposedly hot. A dish I normally enjoy, and prepare very well myself. A benign summary would be 'bland'. Made me think of Thai fast food, in the wrong way. You know, styrofoam box w compartments, obviously canned ingredients, and only for the very hungry on the go.
Cook it yourself, with 'cheat' ingredients such as a ready-made curry paste, and you'll notice the difference. If you want fast food, get a falafel instead. They are great in Malmo, cheap, and a real treat.
As for service, the usual difficulties of getting a message across in any language you know. Fast, however. Decor is as bland as the food. Location is nice, and Moellan is an interesting part of Malmo. So, if the weather allows it, sit outside and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the square. But go for a weekday lunch menu. At least it will be cheap(ish, we're in Sweden after all).
