Set up in a casual, sheltered and open atmosphere, Sombat offers a breathtaking view for one who picks the table overlooking the great river of Chao Phraya. The restaurant is clean and the waitress whom took the order speaks reasonably good English. Opting for a family-style dining, we ordered six main dishes and kept spare some room to try Thai desserts as well since they sound very inviting.
The first dish served was Tom Yum Seafood. The first sight made us thought it was just a plain soup and we nearly called the waitress to verify. Having Odd around, he explained that it was the correct dish. Never judge a dish by its look! The moment I took a sip, it was unbelievable! The Tom Yum Seafood was excellent. A blend of sour (tangy), hot (spicy), savory and yummy flavors, it was perfectly cooked with scallops, squibs, prawns, chicken and mushrooms. Of all the tom yum, this is the best I had ever tasted!
Our second dishes was Green Curry Chicken. Green Curry is a famous Thai cuisine. Derived from the color green, some claim that green curry tends to be hotter. Combining green curry paste, a variety of spices and coconut milk, green curry is cooked with chicken of mouth-bite sizes in thick gravy. Creamy and fragrance, our green curry was great going well with steamed rice.
Better known as Thai appetizer, Papaya Salad was the next platter served. Offered with fresh vegetables accompaniment such as morning glory, cabbage, long bean and bean sprout, it was topped with sweet sauce, lime juice, in addition to some sprinkle of crushed peanuts. Indeed fabulous and hard to resist!
Last but not least, we tried a couple bowls of Thai desserts namely glutinous rice balls in plain soup and corn/sago in coconut milk soup. Both were served hot. Sweet and delicious.
The total bill for five of us came out less than 800 Baht, counted in our drinks as well. Great experience and we love the food.
