Restaurant Review: Renn Thai

By Wednesday, July 04, 2012 , , ,

Do you know about the Weekday S$15 Nett Set Lunch at Clarke Quay? There are 2-5 course set lunches available from the various restaurants nestled in Clarke Quay and i personally think that it's an awesome deal (no they are not paying me to promote this). Anyway, this promotion has been around for the longest time ever and the current promotion runs till end 2012. Surprisingly, i've found it hard to make it between the 12-3pm slot for lunch so i've only tried 2 of the restaurants, the first being Hot Stones and the most recent was Renn Thai.

 Good thing there were 2 of us so we tried all the dishes available for lunch.
Spring Rolls (1set) and Green Mango Salad (1set). I don't usually have this dish because i prefer mangoes that are ripe. Was quite pleasantly surprised because the dish was very appetizing with the mix of sweet, sour and spice. The spring rolls were not bad either. They were stuffed with carrots, radish, mushrooms and dried shrimps and went well with the sweet sauce on the side.
For mains we had the Phad Thai and Pineapple Rice.
I thought the Phad Thai was delicious. The glass noodles were of the right chewiness and they weren't too dry. I like that it wasn't too sweet either. Some Phad Thai are way too sweet i feel. I'm not too sure if that's the original Thai style though. Someone enlighten me please?

The Pineapple Rice wasn't too shady as well though there aren't much ingredients used. A few chunks of chicken, random little pieces of nuts thrown in.  More floss please!
The Tom Yum Soup really packs a POW. Very very extremely spicy this is but it was so good with the fresh prawns. S started perspiring away and i was reaching out for the ice water ever so often but it's delicious!
I was wondering how is it possible to serve 3 or more courses for only S$15 nett then i saw that drinks are considered as 1 course as well. For example, Korean Boss BarBQ considers themselves to serve 4 course when it's actually just 1 main course of meat dish+ rice+soup+side dishes. That's a little misleading I feel but then again, it's 15 bucks for a decent restaurant meal so i'm not complaining (and neither should you).

Food: 4/5 Surprised by the quality of the dishes. I still love Nakhon but this is slightly more comfortable and the central location makes it a good place for a meal before drinks. :)
Service: 3.5/5 Acceptable service.
Atmosphere: 4/5 Comfortable with Thai pop songs playing in the background.

The promotion is on for weekdays, 12pm-3pm, excluding PH. Free Parking during the same period too.

Do go try the other restaurants. Next on my list should be The Forbidden City by Indochine (Viet) and Tomo Izkaya (Jap). :))
