“Authentic Thai Food in Central Mall”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Papaya salad is a definite must. It taste exactly like how one will order in Bangkok or Phuket. The curry was fragrant. Minced chicken with basil a must try. The friendly service is another big plus.

“Excellent Thai food with friendly service , hightly recommened for vegetarians”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Thai Affair is located in the basement market/food court of the The Central mall opposite the Swissotel Merchant Court. Since we were staying at this hotel for 5 days , this became our regular dinner place becace of the owner's enthusiasm in accomodating our Indian vegetarian group.

Over 3-4 visits we tried most of the starters and curries and found them all excellent. The taste is similar to a good thai restaurant in New York or London, with very fresh ingredients . We could make out the disting flavors of each curry .

The owners ( Alex and his family) were very warm and friendly . When we first walked across this place , we were just browsing and had no intention of eating there . We asked some standard questions about veggy options and were surprised when Alex offer to perpare any of the curries to our specification . We got into a chat about ingredients, techniques , how they dont use bottled curry paste and enjoing the food and hospitality so much that we ate there almost daily.

I would strongly recommend Thai Affair if you like good , inexpensive thai food served in an clean ( the palce is very new) unpretentious and friendly setting.
