Soul Thai Restaurant is a renowned Thai restaurant in Johor Bahru. Established since 2009, they aspire to serve authentic Thai cuisine to the locals. To ensure the authenticity of the dishes, they directly import a large chunk of their ingredients and sauces from Thailand. The food is prepared by Thai Chefs led by Executive Chef Payup Suwong who is an award winning chef from Thailand. He fine-tuned the tastes and flavours to suit local palates while honouring the essence of Thai cuisine. The decor is extremely classy with Thai elements. There is also an exclusive private room for those who desires privacy.
The menu is extremely extensive. Of course, when stepping into a Thai restaurant, you must definitely sample their Tom Yam Kung. The broth is spicy and murky with fragrant lemongrass and herbs. It is tangy, savoury, sweet and spicy at the same time and will definitely open your appetite. The seafood is also fresh with a taste of ocean. Do also sample their Signature Fried Fish concocted using sea bass. It is covered by a luscious blanket of lemongrass, chili, spring onions, cashews, peanuts and other ingredients. The fish is doused with a savoury and spicy house-blended sauce. There is also the Clay Pot Crab with Grass Noodle, with the live crabs sweet, meaty and juicy. The grass noodles are delicious too, sponging up the savoury gravy and crab juices. Their Pineapple Fried Rice is also delectable, cooked with turmeric and topped with shallots, raisins, maize, peas and cashews. Mildly flavoured, it complements the rest of the dishes well.
End your meal with a bowl of their Thai Style ABC. Different from the Malaysian variety, it consists of attap seeds, ruby chestnuts, pandan worms in a bowl with coconut milk and ice.
