Saap Saap Thai is an accessible Halal Thai food chain which has a relatively extensive menu of noodles and dishes to get your simple Thai food fix. They have the essential Thai food dishes - from tom yum, green curry, to basil minced chicken. It is also rather affordably priced - considering how it’s a decent meal enough to fill 1. While definitely not the ‘zi char’ sharing style you can find in other Thai restaurants, if coming in a group, you can still order yummy desserts and some sharing plates/soup! Furthermore, you can make a set by paying just $2.50 for a Thai iced milk tea - 50cents off the usual price.😍

Went for the crispy chicken Thai Tom yum noodle. The Tom yum broth had the spicy kick, not so much the sour kick. The chicken was big!! A huge generous portion, but I would really prefer it if they had served it separately. The option might have been possible if one requested, but I did not try nor know about it😅 what stood out to me was the rice noodles!! The noodle thickness was slightly thicker than your bee Hoon, with a super chewy and qq texture that really bounced when you eat.👍🏻

Light, creamy and coconutty all at the same time🥥 Slight spiciness and sweetness to the curry - quintessential flavours to a good bowl of Thai green curry!

A recommended side dish on their menu as well. Looked too good not to try. For $6.90, this plate of fried pork seemed a little small. And it will feel even smaller because of how delectable it is. Indeed fragrant and extremely fried, the skin of the pork belly was flavourful and crisp. With the dash of peanuts dipped with chilli, it was a yummy, sinful side dish to complement with one’s main dish. The achar at the side was appetising as well!

A must try on their menu, looked super good in pictures. It was also pretty delicious in reality. The egg may taste a little on the blander side, but just add a bit of the sauces the restaurant provides, chilli powder and chilli padi and I believe it will help to elevate the flavour, or provide that added spicy kick for the spice lovers. A moderate amount of prawns - arguably towards the more generous side for a plate of rice with prawns. Rather impressed by this place, would love to try their other dishes!

Described as a Tom yam flavoured spicy and sour seafood mixed platter consisting of prawns, minced pork, squid, mussels, fish, egg, and mama/instant noodles—this dish was approximates for feed 2-3 pax. Please, it fed way more than that🤣 while I do think that 2-3 pax can finish this and feel full, groups accommodating more people can afford to try this and the other affordable Thai dishes they offer. The soup was lacked flavour upon first taste, but after a few servings and allowing the ingredients to simmer in the soup for a while, it became a good balance of spicy and sour. Honestly, this is a seemingly easy dish to cook at home. But, having this steamboat-mixed-platter vibe in a restaurant setting in Jewel Changi Airport makes the experience really fun and worthwhile, especially when it is arguably one of the affordable meals for a restaurant in the area.
I’ve seen reviews on Sanook’s service being horrible in other branches. While the service here was not outstanding, it may be understandable as it was peak hour and there were more people than usual. Although at times you do believe that some staff ignore you or are not as aware as you’d like, there were a few extremely polite and friendly staff who made us feel welcome. That contributed to a rather lovely meal experience there.

Mixed feelings about this because it seems to be on the pricier side. The prawns were chopped into smaller pieces which seemed to be quite a wise option because you can Ensure with every egg you take your get some prawns. But the omelette had starch in it to give a sticky texture, but at times may seem a bit slimy. Overall I thought it was decent and not bad, different from a normal prawn egg omelette you can find elsewhere. But for $15, I would think twice before ordering it.

This dish fell short of expectations and was less than ordinary. Couldn’t really taste the black pepper flavour, and the gravy was slimy. The beef was also chewy with a plastic texture.. wouldn’t come back for this.

This was yummy! A good amount of seafood in it. Spicy, tasty and what it should be. For this portion, $12 is pretty worth.

This did not stand out either especially with the phat Thai. It wasn’t really spicy, much less lacking in the sourness of the tom yum flavour, but at least there was some seafood - prawns and squid in it. Overall, a pretty acceptable dish that one shouldn’t pin too huge expectations on.

Felt like the sausages were very out of this place in this dish here. This fried rice was pretty decent but nothing special to me. There was a pineapple flavour to the rice, with some bits of chicken, pineapple cubes here and there. Overall pretty ordinary.

Favourite dish of the night was definitely this plate of Phat Thai. I am not really a fan of this dish but this plate changed my perception of how good it can actually be. Sure it looks simple, but it was tasty, more to the wetter side and not dry, and overall just so flavourful and yummy. Add their condiments such as sugar, chilli powder and peanuts, and it would taste even more complete.

This char kway teow had a super flavourful and good wok hei taste that is a huge must for this dish!! The dish is pretty small but it’ll become filling over time. However you don’t have the option to add chilli and they don’t have chilli on the side which really doesn’t feel right for me!! Would prefer it to be spicier but it was still pretty good for the price.
