Thai to go
Hot 13426 1 0
My office culture is that the birthday person has to throw a celebratory lunch for the whole department. As most of my colleagues are great cooks and can easily whipped up a whole table of dishes easily, this is no mean feat to them. For a non-cook, i ponder hard over what to order and did some search online. Just then a friend posted positive comments of Thai to Go on facebook. Since she is an avid food taster, i trusted her opinions.
The food arrived promptly. My colleagues were very satisfied with the Thai food. I hear all the positive comments about them. I like how one can easily order the food since the minimum order (for my area) is $30 and two or three bento sets are easily past that amount. I dislike some delivery service where their minimum delivery requirement is at least 20 boxes. So this is definitely a plus point for them.
This is a great thai food delivery service for anyone who loves thai food/too lazy to eat out/celebratory lunch for colleagues. Recommended!
I'm sure there are plenty of authentic Thai restaurants around the island, but this is by far my favourite.
I chanced upon it when once when I was tired of office hawker food and didn't want McDonald's anymore. Thai food that delivers? I can't say no to that!
Their tom yam noodle soup is really spicy and closer to authenticity than some restaurants I have tried. Their glass noodles salad is to die for, and I just love their spring rolls - although I really don't know if that particular dish is authentic Thai.
I have ordered from them multiple times and their food always delivers, is always nice and hot and no plate is ever left unconquered. Their portions are justifiable of their price. Their service is good - they would ask if you need cutlery, which I personally think is very environmentally friendly but then again I have been wrong before - but beware of their delivery. I always order early to beat the peak hours.
Can't comment on their outlet as I haven't been there. But if the standard of the food at the outlet doesn't match their delivered food, I am going to be so bumped.
Ordered from Thai To Go since I'm quite comfortable lazing at home that particular night. Delivery time took much longer time than I expected, but luckily the food came piping hot, and saves me the trouble of reheating it :) Ordered stuffed chicken wings which is beyond my expectation, as it is not cripsy, and the stuffings daoes not suit my taste. Next is saucy braised tofu with minced chicken.
Seems like typical chinese food, but the sauce is thick and seems to have seep into the ingredients, making every bite enjoyable! Last is the green curry beef. Curry is thick and a little creamy, and beef is not overcooked.
Thai to go is one or maybe only place to go to for delivered thai food. This place serves everything from pineapple fried rice to phad thai to tom yum and even mango sticky rice. It has an outlet at Sembawang that is bound to benefit those living in the north.
Now lets talk about portioning. If you are going to expect a decent bowl of any of the soup, think again. their tom yum has so much soup that it simply doesn't justify the 5.95 price-tag. the reasonable thing to order at thai to go is their pineapple fried rice with a decent portion for a normal male guy like me with the top covered in floss. Totally amazing for a delivery of thai food.
For those with a tongue to swallow the heat, try their thai basil chicken. It was simply too spicy for me. Other great additions are the red and green curry, which also come in too small a portion for me.
Next up, every delivery is about price. The price of thai to go has been going up every 6 months and it went from an affordable meal to a pinch for many of my colleagues. It is not as if the food has increase its portion or that the $3 delivery charge is waived. It is well-known tactic by all delivery company that if you are the sole-provider, ask for the higher price and people will still beg from you. This fact doesn't work anymore in this age as people will just brush you off for your regular customers and seriously, if you lost all your regulars how much can you make from people making mistakes ordering your expensive meals?
Lastly, food delivery is extremely slow despite the destination being in the north also. It takes roughly 2 hours for a decent trip but 3 hours is mainly to be expected. the food usually also arrive cold and for those curry, it could cause tummy-ache due to the water vapour evaporating and dripping back into the coconut rich sauce.
Thai to go is probably the only local Thai delivery option at the moment for people who are craving for spicy, good food at the luxury of their home. What a pity, I discovered this place only in the beginning of this year. Only then, did I come to know about the existence of this place. They actually have an outlet at Sembawang Cottage. I haven’t been there to try the food but basing on my experience I had with the delivery I’m sure the food will be as good or better even.
I spent about $80 ordering for 6 to 8 people to share. The dishes I ordered was papaya salad ($4.95/$6.95), tom yam seafood soup ($6.95/$10.50), green curry chicken ($5.50/$8.50), phad thai seafood ($6.50), thai belachan kangkong ($4.95/$7.50) and mango sticky rice ($4.95). I enjoyed all the dishes, particularly the tom yam soup and the phad thai. I felt the mango sticky rice at Thai Accent tasted better as the rice here was abit tasteless. Nonetheless, it was a hearty meal with my family who enjoyed the food as well.
Do note there is a $3 delivery charge.
Their website is very user-friendly so you won’t have any issue with regards to ordering like I did.
