Thai at Channel Court
This being an asian restaurant, it's surprising that they don't get the correct ratio of rice to the "souhng" [cantonese for the meat/vegetables/ingredients that's eaten with rice to flavour it]. The rice is not a side dish, it's the main dish. For this much of "souhng", perhaps double or even triple that amount of rice is required.
Sigh, it really would've been a very satisfyingly gorgeous meal if only they'd gotten the rice right! What a pity because it wouldn't have cost them 10c more to give us more rice. For this reason I doubt I'd ever be going back or recommend this place to anyone. At these prices, you're better off eating at Kelantan Delights [just across the road in the Coles complex] where they have similar rice and "souhng" meals for less money, but with more food! granted the ambiance there isn't as nice but true Asians value the food more than the ambiance.
Cantonese vocabulary lesson
"souhng" - ingredients [such as meat, seafood, vegetables, eggs] served with rice to flavour it. Does not include sauces/dips.
