I actually prefer yum cha's teatime buffet. Weekdays only though but the price for the quality is damn worth it.

I went to their website. See like food ingredients are good. Brings me back to those memories in Thailand Bangkok. Alot of such concepts. Bbq big river prawns, oysters etc. Convert back to SGD around $18 if I'm not wrong. Ofc I went further out of talad neon as that area more expensive. I went to somewhere in between Bangkok City centre and Chinatown

Yes, it is like the ones in Bangkok which I dearly miss. Their deal is better when they serve live tiger prawns like Bangkok's live freshwater prawns. I still prefer the latter. Talad Neon is very central, that is why the high price. The further from town the better it gets. There are a few good ones near Suvarnabhumi Airport. Can try Mungkorn the next time you go to Bangkok

With Covid halting travel to Bangkok, I'm contented with 3 Peacocks at the moment. New Thai Tanic used to be good but they are no longer around

Thai tanic was fun initially when you can catch the live prawns from the tanks beside your seats

3 peacocks is good ah? Did you try recently w the ala carte ordering format? Sometimes the food is good but the biz cannot adapt to the ala carte format well, so the experience suffers.

For Thai Tanic, not just live prawns but nice plump tiger prawns. The tanks also have live cray fish and flower crabs. Those were the good old days. Then it went downhill. The tiger prawns were substituted with super hard to catch grey prawns that can jump all the way to other tables. Now, tanks are empty

3 Peacocks is not bad but did not try the ala carte one yet because busy eating other buffets

New Thai Tanic BBQ @ Joo Chiat = Permanently Closed

New Thai Tanic Hotpot @ Bukit Pasoh = Still open but standard dropped a lot. Long aquarium tanks at dining tables that used to have live prawns, flower crabs and crayfish are now empty

Of course both. No point going to one that sacrifices one plus point for the other

At the start, they are doing the same concept as in BKK where you can fish live prawns from tanks right beside your table. Later they cut cost and the live prawns become dead ones So the tanks are emptied and rather spending more $ to remove them, they just left them empty.

Btw, i just glanced thru the recent reviews for 3 peacocks. Not tat good wor. Seems like they removed a no of items n have some difficulties coping w the ala carte format.
