Thai I Love You, Central Park Mall

Weekdays in over in July, just normal day after i'd like to go to dinner hunting. This time i would like to tell about new opening Thai restaurant in Central Park mall. It's Thai I Love You". For your information, this restaurant is part of Jitlada Group which i ever mention in my page before. 


It has same concept of dishes, Thai foods. But with different concept of restaurant interior and ambience. If i do not mistake, Thai I Love You has been opening about couple of months, mostly quiet crowded when i pass throu there. And exactly night when i went there, i was on second waiting list. Start from front, waitress not really friendly i may say, not even glimpse of smile while greeting customers. 

Since i thought about this is new restaurant, maybe staff could be new employees. and as seen many customers that night, i have an assume this restaurant must be have something great to served. It took me only about 10-15 mins to get turn, so i think it is fine.  This restaurant has different interior concept than Jitlada. It has Thailand characteristic painting on the wall, crowded and colorful. As normally, it has open kitchen where i can see an old lady could be the chef right there. 

So without waste time, i ordered start from Pandan Chicken & Pomelon Salad as the appetizers, then pineapple fried rice & longbeans with shrimp paste, also drink as main in Thailand drink is Thai Ice Tea. Note after ordering, i was saying please serve the appetizers first before main course to the waiter and he said ok. As expected, Pandan Chicken came out first.



It is chicken been fried wrap by pandan leaf, what it taste not really aunthentic pandan, it just taste soft fried chicken. It also has a soy sauce, not an awesome but it is fine. next second appetizer should have be pomelon salad, but what they did is waiter served it along with the longbeans. What my point here not complaining about the foods, but it's about how warmly you are giving service to customers, i am sure i did ask to put out the appetizers for first. For restaurant at mall, i think this is normal procedure during full set menu serve.


As usual Thai dish, Pomelon Salad has sweet and sour taste. squeezed pomelon mixed with fried garlic, onions, seasonings.  What i feel, pomelon is not fresh enough, good thing it is blended in seasoning.


After finished appetizer, still one menu left. Pineapple fried rice which it not come out yet. Until i asked the waiter, and took about 10 mins, it's just ready on my table. note: each waiters/ waitress comes to table are different.  Pineapple fried rice in mini cute pineapple, completed with 4 of cashew and one shrimp.


once again, it's not awesome. underseasoning is the problem. I believed it should be much better than dish what i taste before.


I am not saying about judgment here, but what it taste is real. comparison of foods is normally what i been doing, having same dishes in different place is what i used to be. even though each restaurant has their own flavors, but this pineapple rice could be not my choice. I am sure Jitlada has better taste. And last dish i had is a longbeans with shrimp paste, it taste really spicy, have a good smell of ebi and longbeans really deeply blended with it paste. What a sad is about the longbeans texture and color looks overcooked, dark color and not crunchy.


All over foods could be under average especially pomelon salad, what it taste, you should have try it to know. one i can recommended is Longbeans, it has nice shrimp paste, spicy and tasty. For price, it's quiet same with Jitlada which is middle to up. i am much recommended Jitlada than this, much Thai taste i could feels at there.
