Charcoal Thai Speciality

Charcoal Thai has been in the Kovan neighbourhood for quite some time, and has gained their fair share of loyal customers. With Thai Pop and occasional Korean Pop music blasting in the background, the restaurant sets an upbeat atmosphere for their diners to have a hearty meal.

The menu at Charcoal Thai is comprehensive and nothing is overly expensive. You may also take a while to decide on what to order, but let me say that you need to have their chicken is tender, savoury and flavourful, while the soup base is spicy and quite strong-flavoured with Thai Chicken Hotpot. 


The best part about Mookata is the grilling part on the top it was good the meat. I was hopping for an egg and some rice. It’s too Delicious. I do eat a lot. We settled on the Mookata Set which comes with a pre-set selection of items for 2-3 people. These items cannot be swapped or exchanged with other items of equivalent value, unless the kitchen runs out of something. The charcoal within the Mookata Pot keeps burning for quite a long time, around 2 hours or so, more than enough time for even the buffet meal.

The Thai Beauty Collagen is stewed for hours into a smooth collagen pudding. Watch the collagen pudding slowly melt into a pot of rich creamy broth. The set comes with marinated chicken, pork, beef, cheese sausages, prawns, enoki mushrooms, fishcake, tau pok and assorted vegetables.

Apart from its ala carte menu, Charcoal Thai also offers an unusual buffet-style selection. With the choice of vegetable broth or tom yum soup base, I opted for the latter which is engineered to be lighter in flavor and more suitable for a Mookata steamboat. I also ordered the meat platter which is served in a generous portion.

Blended from thai tea leaves, the Thai Milk Tea is rich and fragrant, having tried many thai milk tea in Singapore, this came off as one of the better ones! Authentic Thai Milk Tea are known to be sweet, so for those who don't like sweet stuff, thai milk tea may not be to their liking. After taking the first sip, I couldnt stop drinking it! Love it so much that I actually wanted a second glass.

The Thai Lemongrass drink is light and refreshing infused with a mix of lemongrass and pandan leaves. However, I personally feel that the lemongrass taste could be a tad stronger as I actually find the lemongrass taste too light.

I would highly suggest making reservations if you are planning to make a trip down for some Thai action because the restaurant is rather small. It definitely is not a first date dining choice, but certainly somewhere to bring your family and friends for a hearty feast at affordable prices.
