Hidden down an avenue in the shade of lofty trees, Yu Thai is determined to bring authentic Thai food to the city.
It employs four Thai chefs, and executive chef Jeremy Lim, a Singaporean based in Thailand, has twice won the HRH Princess Sirindhorn Cup.
The restaurant, a two-floor building with a garden, has a comprehensive menu. Many Thai food fans say a good way of testing a Thai restaurant is by ordering a bowl of tom yam gong - a pungent soup containing shrimps, lemon leaves and lemongrass.
Yu Thai doesn't disappoint. The balance of spicy, sour and salty flavors is just right -- pleasing rather than irritating the nose and tongue.
The restaurant's signature dishes are its mild and aromatic curries.
The yellow crab curry is recommended for the harmonious combination of sweet fresh crab meat and smooth, aromatic curry.
Green beef curry is also a popular choice with diners, the meat soaking up the rich juices to perfection.
