In conclusion, I really like this restaurant for the fact that it allowed me to experience Thai Food in the way that I have never experienced before. Overall food was very good with some super-excellent food and some 'alright' ones. It might not be the place where I will have my regular meals (price, of course, is one major obstacles). However, I would love to revisit the place once in a while, especially whenever they launch new menu.
I wanted to go to Sra Bua for quite sometimes, after hearing all the buzz about the place. I had my chance a couple of weeks ago and it didn't disappoint me.
I went there with my wife and we both had 4 courses menu and ending up having a chance to try each other's food too. Here is my thought on each courses:
Appetizer : Came in 2 sets 'cracker' and 'street food', each of which contains 3 - 4 bite-size variety. What I like most, surprisingly, is the dip of the cracker. It's very light and the flavor was just spot on. I could have a lot of that but unfortunately, the portion was quite small and, unlike any other Thai restaurant, you cannot order just THAT dish.
Entree : I had red curry with lobster. Unlike regular red curry, which is served hot, this curry was served cold in a mouse format. It taste good but not far different from any other red curry. Nonetheless, it is still a good experience.
Main Course : I had Tom Kha Quail. Tom Kha taste the same as in any other Tom Kha and can add some more spice. However, the quail was THE BEST POULTRY I have ever had in my entire life. It was cooked to perfection with juice and tenderness. So, this is really good dish. My wife, however, had a chicken with lemongrass and I think that dish is not exciting.
Desert : I had pandan ice cream with pistachio cake and it taste really good. Even though it sounds like food you can find elsewhere but the taste is absolutely right. Again .. love it.
Overall, I had a wonderful time at the place and nothing disappoint me. From the price standpoint, I might expect everything to be over the top, which is not the case for every dish but at least it gave me something that I couldn't find elsewhere.
