Just when we thought we have tried all the restaurants we wanted to in Prospect, we discovered Khim Thai Restaurant along Prospect Road. We found the food served here to be very delicious and service was also fairly efficient with our dishes served not long after we placed our order.
Their Kai Pad Nam Som Makhaan is notable for its use of tamarind in the dish, which gave the dish a delectable tangy taste. The chunks of chicken were of a generous size and the various vegetables complemented it well.

Otherwise known as Green Thai Curry, Gaemg Khao Wann can be considered a standard at Thai restaurants. This curry can be prepared with your choice of prawn, chicken or beef. The beef we chose for the dish was tender and the curry gravy was of the degree of spiciness to make eating the dish an enjoyable experience. We also liked that the eggplant included in the dish was not too mushy.

To balance out meat dishes, we ordered the Pad Pak Ruam Mitr, a dish in which a selection of vegetables is stir-fried with some oyster sauce. The vegetables were cooked just right with the mixture of both firm and soft vegetables complementing each other perfectly. The oyster sauce brought out the flavour of the vegetables without overwhelming them.

As a change from steamed rice, we ordered the Khoa Pad Kai, essentially fried rice with egg and chicken. We were delighted that it had the "Wok Hei" (breath of the wok flavour) that we consider a key element of a good fried rice dish. It also had a bit of crunch coming from the inclusion of bean sprouts in the dish.

Khim Thai Restaurant's décor was simple and functional. The tables were spaced sufficiently apart and the place has a relaxed, causal ambience. If you are looking for a relatively affordable Thai restaurant in Prospect, consider giving Khim Thai Restaurant a visit.
