Totally why we came to the place! Very buttery toast with cha thai/kaya sauce by the side. Somewhat reminds me of On Lok Yun in Bangkok!

The toast is mighty fluffy and soft, only lightly buttered but undoubtedly crisp. The deal breaker though is still the stunning rich and thick dips provided. The kaya-like pandan or the fragrant Thai tea, you can't go wrong with either.

Easily found in any Thai restaurant around, I've never been particularly impressed with this simple dish of Kai Lan with Roasted Pork till I tried Cha Thai's rendition. Huge generous slabs of roast pork, lean yet moist, boasting a wonderful crackling; stir-fried with crunchy green leaves and lots of garlic. Besides the obviously superb meat, I was especially pleased at how the sauce merely coats the ingredients, keeping the dish light while delicious. Very unlike most that come swimming in a starchy sauce!

The creamy crab roll came with a coconut curry sauce loaded with lots of shredded crab meat. Rather than being spicy, the curry is aromatic and fragrant due to the generous amount of coconut. With the usage of crab meat, you can also taste the sweetness in the curry! The fried spring rolls were very crispy and the crunchy crackling bite went very well with the curry.

They were not kidding when they said that premium tiger prawns are used in this claypot, and probably explains the price tag of it. The prawns were so huge that it made us feel full after having it. Slits are also made the body of the prawn to allow the flavor to soak through. The fat and extremely meaty prawns were very enjoyable as the sweetness permeates throughout your mouth as you bite onto it. The sauce is seasoned with spices, ginger, pepper and spring onion that brings out the herb-y yet aromatic flavor, all nicely coated onto the glass noodles! This is good to be shared amongst 4 pax!

*Slurps* This dish was recommended in their menu. It was delicious, especially the roast pork that came with the rice had a very nice texture; it was juicy and crispy at the same time. *love*. We ordered: Tom Yum Soup (S$ 28) and Thai Train Fried Rice (S$ 16). Total bill inclusive service charge and GST: S$51.80 Verdict: Definitely will return to try other dishes. #burpple #burpplesg #chathai

Had this 1-1 boat noodle from Burpple promotion.
Portion is quite big, worth a try.

Toasted crisply and buttered, love the taste with the green sauce 😋 yum yum!

This bowl of boat noodles had a thick and rich broth. Was told that it was painstakingly slow-boiled for hours, using more than 15 types of herbs. It was indeed really flavorful. The spice may be too mild for some, but you've the option to request for it to be extra spicy.
This is taken during a tasting.

I like their prawn cakes, it was thick and juicy, and fillings felt genuine. Was told that they were made of tiger prawns, and Cha Thai is good for theie tiger prawns dishes. Mop this up with a bit of the Thai sweet plum sauce which @wishuponatart was pictured holding it here. It was a great treat. Taken during a tasting.

A platter of golden brown toast and charcoal toast, alongside a Thai milk tea dip and a pandan dip.
The toast is lovely and crisp, though I don't detect much difference between the regular version and the charcoal version.
But the luscious, creamy dipping sauces are delicious; the pandan / screwpine leaf dip is floral earthy sweet, while the Thai milk tea is nicely balanced, just like their beverage.
Invited tasting hosted by @chathaisg.
