Family dinner night = more Thai food to be consumed. We hit up the Thai Town on the top floor of Xuhui Pacific Store recommended by a friend who had tried the same chain store in Loushanguan Road. Thought we’d give the place a shot especially since I noticed it was a popular Taiwanese-opened Thai restaurant when I was traveling in Taipei. 

Appetizer was their recommended Original Shrimp Pancake. 

Shrimp cakes were fried until crisp on the outside, juicy on the inside. Highly recommended.

Had some Thai Iced Milk Tea to go with that. 

Sweet, smooth and silky - recommended. 

For mains we had their Green Curry.

Extremely disappointed to find out this dish was too runny with a thick layer of oil covering the top.

We also had Yellow Curry.

Not much of an improvement from the previous curry dish. Wouldn’t recommend getting any of their curry orders.

Of course, we also ordered their Pad Thai.

Standard, would recommend if you’re looking for something safe to order as your main here.  

We also had their Morning Glory.

At least their Morning Glory made a good impression. Strong in garlic flavor stir-fried in oyster sauce, would recommend.

Lastly, not featured (because I didn’t even want to take pictures) are their Burbur Cha Cha with Crushed Ice and Bean Paste in Coconut Milk with Crushed Ice. I have never been so disappointed in a chain restaurant’s desserts before, but this was really an all time low. Measly portions of watery, can-opened tapioca, fruit and mushed beans clumped together in two bowls.

Overall, the highlight of this restaurant is really just their Shrimp Pancakes and Thai Iced Milk Tea. Nothing else we tried really stood out, but their desserts have left a bad taste in our mouthes (literally). We love Thai food so our standards aren’t exceedingly high, but I can guarantee that you’re better off eating at Simply Thai, which consistently serves quality Thai food or T for Thai, although it is slightly more expensive.
