    Restoran Andaman Tom Yam Halal a81b201f94b2180a29928950eefa06850871fc85c2ba8fcb39753bdbcdfb49cfCertified
    halal

    This famous restaurant apparently houses some of the best Thai dishes in Kuantan and famously known for it. Restoran Andaman Tom Yam does best at what it is good at including dishing out a scrumptious looking and packed bowl of tom yam. The tom yam is slightly redder in colour which is pretty much an indicator that its level of spiciness is slightly beyond mediocre nevertheless it does not overwhelm the obvious taste of the sweet and sourness. 
    Tips

    Chicken bits in their chicken tom yam is unusually largely cut - probably just to spice things up a little bit

    Things to expect

    A rather slow service that comes to out pitiness but the waiting will be worth it after tasting some of their dishes.
