A food blog I follow recently posted a review on this Thai restaurant in Kuchai Lama. As I had a work meet along Old Klang Road, I figured it would be a good time to drop by Thai Tae as it was located 10 minutes away from where I was. From the many positive reviews online about this eatery, I was looking forward to eating some delicious Thai food.
Parking : There was plenty of parking spots. However, dropping by on a weekday during lunch hour meant that none were empty ones. I had to drive around the block several times before coming across a vacant spot.
Thai Tae is located on the first floor.
If you are looking for an eatery that aesthetically pleasing and instagrammable, this eatery will not fit the bill. At first glance, it looked a tad run down but that is soon forgotten when you start hearing the Thai cooks yapping away in the kitchen, lol. Yap, yap, yap … well, at least I do not have to worry about the food authenticity. Although I had no understanding at all about the conversation that was taking place, it was entertaining enough listening to them loudly overriding each other. 😄😄

Red Tom Yum Soup with Chicken, RM 20 + Rice with Stir Fried Basil and Chicken, RM 13.90
Food was good, authentic for sure. The Red Tom Yum Soup was da’ bomb. Most places serve soup that is watery. It may be flavorful but watery nonetheless. The one here was thick. In my opinion, the thicker broth here managed to amplify the potentness of the spices used. So, if you are all about the flavors and taste, you’d be able to satisfy your craving here. Lots of soup with a good portion of chicken, vegetables, chillies and etc. Perfect to slurp up as soup and equally as good eating with the rice.
The Rice with Stir Fried Basil and Chicken a.k.a. Pad Krapow, was delicious. One thing guaranteed at Thai Tae is the generous portion of the dishes. At RM 13.90, you’d get rice, a fried egg and chicken with basil. Most restaurants I’ve been to served the chicken in minced form and in most cases, a tad too salty. Here, they serve it in strips, with some turmeric added in, if I am not mistaken. Salt was the right amount. I liked the taste and flavor. It was a perfect choice for lunch.
Would I head back here? Yea, I would. That tom yum soup especially, I need more.
