If you are a foodie who loves Asian food, particularly Thai, this restaurant is guaranteed to satiate all your senses. My summary of the place – superbly presented food that tastes as good as it looks!

I had the lunch buffet and it was fabulous. The meal started off with a very wide range of starters and salads. I pretty much tasted everything – it looked so good. Vegetarian options that blew my socks off included the grilled noodle salad, the green papaya salad and the banana stem salad. Light yet luscious! For the bird and meat-eaters, the grilled beef salad was exquisite, so was the chicken satay. The prawn tom yum soup – the best I have ever had.

Main course options were three – pad thai or rice with green or red curry. All three came with either vegetables, chicken or prawn. We chose the chicken pad thai and the steamed rice with chicken red curry. While the emphasis on the starters is exquisite blending and balance of different ingredients and flavours, the main course scored highly with me for its very basic, back to the roots taste. While I feasted on the red curry and rice, I could imagine myself sitting in a Thai farmer’s kitchen. The dish had a wholesome, country flavour to it.

The dessert options did not look too exciting – I picked the chocolate mud pie and decided to skip it after two bites. Not bad – but not worth wasting calories on.

Décor at Tai Tai is bright and cheery – lots of light, rattan chairs, cheerful walls. You can choose to sit inside or dine at the open air terrace area.

The lunch buffet is priced at Rs.250 per head excluding taxes and includes soup, salad, starters, main course and dessert. Valet parking is available at the basement (it is located above Bombay Store in MG Road).
