There are an abundance of prawns, mushrooms, tomatoes and many other vegetables within and the flavour is absolutely delightful.

    Go Thai is a place of visit when one is craving for delicious Thai food but, is broke at the same time. Located in the buzzing town of SS2, this humble cafe/restaurant is nicely tucked right next to the police station, near the durian street. The menu is fairly limited with a maximum of 15 items on the menu, but each one of them is done really nicely. The tom yam is only available in seafood option, but for RM12, it is quite the bargain. Though it is enough to feed 2, the bowl of tom yam can be easily consumed by 1 person. It is spicy, tangy and packed full of flavour and certainly is one of the best tom yam around SS2.

    Tips

    Come before 7 to avoid waiting.

    Things to expect

    Most of you who visit shopping malls very regularly would have known of Thai Thai. Some may be too intimidated to step in while others prefer classical Thai restaurants. However, Thai Thai is somewhat affordable, when you are looking at the service, food quality and ambiance. It usually has a dark and cozy vibe, where business meetings, company lunches and dinners are commonly held. As for their tom yam, it is slightly pricey but the flavours are well worth the pennies. You can also choose between vegetables, chicken, prawn or seafood. 
    Tips

    Since it’s in a mall, it’s usually full on weekends.

    Things to expect

    Modern ambience, air-conditioned

    Erawan Classic is the perfect place for Thai fine dining because every ingredient and recipe here is made to suit the perfection and taste buds of local tongues. If you love seafood and intend to order a majority of it for your meal, you might have to make reservations a day earlier so that the restaurant can ensure the freshness of its seafood. This is to ensure that their customers will have a good time with their meal too! Erawan Classic’s Tom Yam Soup comes in two broths; clear and red. They both taste almost the same but the red one is creamier and the white one is lighter. The seafood in the tom yam soup is as fresh as fresh can get and it’s definitely worth a splurge here!

    Great for dates!

    Sanoook is quite a fresh concept, where they blend Japanese and Thai cuisine to form something new. Using Japanese method of preparation and Thai ingredients, the fusion of flavours somehow just works really well. You will be exposed to things like the tom yam sushi roll, which is a standard roll of sushi doused in homemade tom yam sauce. On the other hand, if you are in the mood for some authentic tom yam soup, their version has quite the kick. It is rich, creamy and a little spicier than most. There is also another option for a clear-soup tom yam, which is much tangier in comparison.

    Though it may be a steamboat restaurant, Hometown steamboat has established themselves as one of the best tom yam soup provider amongst steamboat restaurants. As you will expect, the tom yam here is a little spicier than most and somewhat salty as well. It works well when there are an abundance of ingredients such as fish balls, crabsticks, fried beancurd, chicken, beef, lamb, or even seafood dumped into it as that will improve the flavour. Oh, do not forget to enjoy their spread of steamboat with some amazingly spicy chilli as well!

    Thai Hou Sek, a pun that derives from the Cantonese language with the meaning 'extremely delicious', has just landed in Bandar Utama in November 2016. This restaurant, with the idea of quick and delicious Thai food, has gotten people to queue over 30 minutes, which is quite ironic. Interiorly, it is nicely designed with old elements such as timber pieces and black metal mesh. The menu on the other hand, is modern where the dishes are served beautifully in smaller portions.
