I ate here one night as it was in the basement of the mall next to my hotel. I had a sore throat and the lemongrass chicken soup was great. I also had the pad thai which was also good except for the hot chili they sprinkeled on the top which I would have skipped. This was freshly made authentic food. The owner was very nice and the service good. The prices were reasonable. They also had alot of vegetarian options available.

Papaya salad is a definite must. It taste exactly like how one will order in Bangkok or Phuket. The curry was fragrant. Minced chicken with basil a must try. The friendly service is another big plus.

Thai Affair is located in the basement market/food court of the The Central mall opposite the Swissotel Merchant Court. Since we were staying at this hotel for 5 days , this became our regular dinner place becace of the owner's enthusiasm in accomodating our Indian vegetarian group.

Over 3-4 visits we tried most of the starters and curries and found them all excellent. The taste is similar to a good thai restaurant in New York or London, with very fresh ingredients . We could make out the disting flavors of each curry .

The owners ( Alex and his family) were very warm and friendly . When we first walked across this place , we were just browsing and had no intention of eating there . We asked some standard questions about veggy options and were surprised when Alex offer to perpare any of the curries to our specification . We got into a chat about ingredients, techniques , how they dont use bottled curry paste and enjoing the food and hospitality so much that we ate there almost daily.

I would strongly recommend Thai Affair if you like good , inexpensive thai food served in an clean ( the palce is very new) unpretentious and friendly setting.
