Tom Yam Goong with Prawns & Fish Maw. The soup was like a confused adolescent who couldn’t decide if it wanted to swing towards Chinese (we’re talking tofu, mushroom, tomatoes and the Kombi Rocks signature fishcake used as ingredients) or Thai, so it just nonchalantly wore a Qipao and said Sawadee Kap while holding stalks of lemongrass. Perhaps “Goong” was interpreted in dialect, which might explain the wizened, malnourished, octogenarian prawns served. The fish maw did its mighty best to salvage things but being super springy and absorbent does not help much if the soup it soaked was so “will this do”. This was frustrating to drink. 2.3/5
