Awesome Thai Food and Delightful Customer Service
So I have been to this place quite sometime back. And it was an amazing experience. Being from coastal India I always had a liking for coconut gravy but I had seldom tried the Thai food . With this limited knowledge I ordered the traditional Thai curry and some rice. The waiter took this order but his supervisor came over after 2 min and said this combination will not taste good and helped us with the right order. That was the 'wow moment' for us. I must say the taste was pretty authentic and that made the experience amazing.
We had Thai Fried Rice and stir fried beef in black pepper and soups. I'm not sure whether this is Thai food. But still, food was good. As with rest of 100Ft restaurants, be prepared for the service tax+vat+ etc which could all add up to around 28%. We will definitely be visiting this place again. Food is good and so is the ambiance.
HI 5 to Hi on Thai!
Buffet lunch on a weekday. Walked in with just 2 other people occupying a table and a very bad feeling about the choice. We accidentally went to Khaaja Chowk first which is just a floor above but came down to this since we had Thai food in mind.
Ambience : Nothing very impressive. Neat and very restauranty. There is an aquarium and the glass windows over looking the busy 100 ft road.
Food : The starters were very pretty good but there was nothing Thai about it. However can't expect much from a buffet. Main course & desserts were also mediocre.
Service : The service was pretty good and paid enough attention to us since there was just one other table filled.
Value for money : The buffet was pretty economical and that would be the point of buffets after all. Planning to try Ala-carte
Amazing food, awesome experience
Indiranagar has quite a few good restaurants. I've tried quite a few of them, and High on Thai has to be THE best. I'm a vegetarian and so my review will be based on my experience - we ordered a veg Bamboo shoots soup, a start that was named something like Baskets with corn & tofu. Post this, we ordered the Pineapple & Chilli jam rice followed by a dessert (with Water chestnut). Each of this tasted amazing and makes you want to eat more.
Regarding the price, soups are priced sub-200, and the main course are priced a little higher than 200 each (veg of course). So the bill if you ordered a soup, a starter, a main course and a dessert will be around 1050 bucks. I can't tell you how much worth for money this place is. Definitely coming back soon.
Fastastic Isn't the Word
My Mom has been dying to try this place out and so, this evening we decided to do so. We had something to celebrate and this seemed the perfect place to celebrate in. We parked our car on a side road and slowly walked to the restaurant. As it is located on the second floor of a building we took the lift. A bit small but well... When we arrived at the restaurant we stepped in and gazed around. The ambience is absolutely amazing. After looking admiringly around we walked to a corner table and settled ourselves with the help of our waiter. Once he saw that we were comfortably seated and took our preference for regular water over bottled water, he discreetly departed to bring us the menus and our water. We looked carefully through the menu and chose a Tom Ka Prawn soup, a Black Olive Fried Rice with Prawns and a Penang Prawn Curry. The Tom Ka soup came soon and we enjoyed every mouthful. It tasted perfect. This was followed by the rice which was filled with Black Olives and Prawns and the Penang Curry which was done to perfection. Every mouthful was delicious and our solicitous waiter aided us with serving. Dinner over, we decided to try their homemade icecreams for dessert. We selected an icecream which had an Orange and Lemongrass flavour. It too was absolutely amazing. During the minimal time between serving the different courses, we looked around and found perfection everywhere - the decor, the lighting and the music were wonderful. The bill when it came was fairly expensive but that is only to be expected from a fine dining establishment. We happily paid the bill and walked out thinking the place was worth every paisa spent - as the food was splendid, the service faultless, the decor wonderful and the lighting amazing. Definitely a place to go to at least once. Certainly a place which I and my family will return to many times, for the food if nothing else.
Nice lunch buffet for weekdays
High on Thai has a nice affordable buffet for lunch on weekdays for around Rs.400 per person. It has got nice ambiance with a Buddhism theme and you could sit either outside having a smoke or inside the air-conditioned comfort. I loved the fish and prawns here and the taste was similar to what I had experienced in my trip to Thailand earlier this year.
Awful Experience !
I happened to visit the place for dinner on my birthday , after having heard several recommendations to try the place out.
1. Decent ambience, both indoor and outdoor with good Impressions of Thailand
2.Decent serving size of food
3.Prompt delivery of order
1.Uncooked Pad Thai ( Pad thai is normally a highlight item of any thai food place ) was served to us, even after returning it and having a fresh portion sent to the table.
2.The vegetables in the Red Curry had a foul smell and taste
3.Half the prawns in the Garlic Pepper Prawns were half cooked.
Most Disappointing experience ive ever had for a Thai meal ever, even more worse as it was my birthday and i brought my family along too .!
Not high but just OK!! Lying Manager!!
Had Crab Balls and Red snapper the food was fine, ambience is also so-so based on the kind of pricing they have. The drinks menu is just a shard, half of the cocktails ingredients are missing. When the bill came I questioned the manager why Service charge is on whole bill, in an overly grotesque excuse he stated that he has clarified with the income tax department and its based on the food and ambience they offer. I wonder The price of all food items would then be same in all restaurants if it was was the service charge which is levied on the amdbience!!!
Extremely LOW on Thai
It is almost offensive that such a prime location can't even live up to its name and ends up dishing up such poor quality food in the name of Thai cuisine.
The only thing Thai about this place is the Buddha statue and figurines all over the place. We were 3 of us for dinner and ordered all from the vegetarian menu. For starters it was the Tofu wrapped in banana leaf and grilled - bland, tasteless and just a major turn off to what was about to be more disaster.
For the main course, it was vegetables stir-fried with pad ki mo ( noodels) and thai basil fried rice. When I quizzed the waiter on the type of rice used on the fried rice, he blatantly lied ( or was just incompetent) that it was jasmine rice, which it was clearly not. He must have thought that I might be new to Thai cuisine. Please DONT underestimate your customer and take them for granted.
For the kind of location, you owe it to your customer to pull up your socks and improve the quality of your food.
We requested fo hot water, and knew from the start that it was water from the tap with a heater. We had to keep swatting fly's half the time. I will never be back to this place and will never be recommending this place to anyone. HIGHLY disappointing.
Avoid at all costs
The positives first - The ambiance is nice. Tastefully done interiors & lovely view of trees from the picture windows.
The negatives- No one to greet us at the entrance. Kind of dark & dingy here. Service was very very slow. This was a Sunday lunch. Asked the waiter for recommendations & ordered the Thai crispy chilli chicken, veg spring rolls, som tam & mango salad. The chicken tasted like any chinese style fried chicken, the spring rolls were stodgy & under-cooked, the salads were ok.
The real disasters were the main course dishes - Again, I ordered the pork dish recommended by the waiter - Stir fried Pork in hot Thai sauce. It was plain rubbish - rubbery batter fried pork in a metallic tasting sauce - it was unedible. Told the waiter as much but he was not too concerned by it. The stir fried tofu with hot basil sauce was like a palak paneer which wants to grow up & become thai. The rice was blah. Nothing really tasted Thai - I know because I travel to Thailand once/twice a year & eat Thai food all the time. During the entire duration of our leisurely lunch, no manager came upto us & asked if everything was ok etc., which is strange in a newly opened place.
The drinks menu was a print out & we realised ,when the waiter told us, that they have no bar license & that they were getting the drinks fromthe restaurant upstairs, which I dont know the legality of.
To top it all the lunch worked out to about 1000rs per head which was absolutely no value for money especially for the rubbish food served & the indifferent service offered.
Very very ordinary
We had this major craving to have some thai food and at the last moment decided to try High On Thai for two reasons - first, it was a new speciality thai restaurant which we hadn't tried out yet (both me and my wife are major thai food lovers) and second, it was in Indiranagar which was close to my home.
We booked a table in advance and specifically asked for the non smoking section. However when we reached there it seemed that they had no clue about my reservation and took us outside to the smoking section. Since the weather was nice in the outside section, we were still fine with it.
We then ordered our staple dishes Pad Thai and Green Curry Chicken with steamed rice. Now any one who knows thai food would say that these are easily the most common and staple thai food available anywhere. So we decided to play it safe and ordered these dishes.
It took them 35 mins to serve us the food. When we asked one waiter about the delay, he said that it was Sunday and the place was crowded and hence the delay. It was a little surprising because there were empty tables and the restaurant was at best 60% occupied. Anyway, when our food finally arrived, our worst fears had come true. The Pad Thai was a futile attempt at making the dish, if i put it mildly...it tasted like over boiled maggi noodles with some peanuts. My green curry was very average and the chicken pieces in the curry had bones in it!! Absolutely pathetic!!
I would not recommend anyone eating at this place unless the chef changes and the food improves. It is a pretty lame attempt at running an authentic thai restaurant especially in the 100ft road area which has such amazing and authentic restaurants. This restaurant sticks out like a sore thumb.
Great Food! Great Service! Great Ambience! Tried the barbecued/grilled mushrooms (chef speciality ) and it was a DELIGHT! Loved the Phad Thai as well! The menu isn't too extensive but it still has some pretty good choices. The staff are very friendly and are great at suggesting order options. Go here if you want something semi-Thai thats tasty and fulfilling. Prices are slightly on the higher side.
More flat than high
There was a time when a restaurant's declaration that it served an international cuisine was all that was needed to establish its authenticity. Many a crime against culture and palette were pepetuated in those dark times. Today however, Indians grow everything from oregano to galangal in their homes, and restaurants have had to up the ante. Which is why there is no excuse for what unfolded on our last visit to High on Thai. First, the good points. The staff were courteous and the cleanliness of the place was only marred by the smell of fish sauce that lingered near the table but I didn't mind. However, politeness does not always mean efficiency and napkins were provided, on request, only after the food was served. We ordered the chilli beef which was fairly good and a chilli-based fish, the name of which i have forgotten, which is as well because the taste too was didtinctly forgettable. There is a certain funked up taste that fish that has been defrosted too fast has and this was the case here. Undeterred, we ordered curry noodles, a seafood rice and a pork in plum sauce. While the noodles ended up being a passable semiya dish, the rice was glistening in oil and was overloaded with turmeric. The pork was too sweet and too tangy at the same time without being flavousome. We mananged to finish the noodles and pork but the rice was just not worth the effort. We decided to skip dessert and left thoroughly dejected with how our plans for a relaxed Sunday afternoon had turned out. Anyone who claims this is authentic Thai is definitely high on something.
Never Going Back.........
I went here with a couple of my friends and had great expectations, especially with a cheeky name like "High on Thai".
We had chilly beef and a Tom yum soup for starters, the Chilly beef was just average and the Tomyum soup had too many of lime leaves in it. For main course we tried a rice noodle and prawn red curry with jasmine rice. All the tree dishes were horrible, the noodles were like southindian semiya and the Thai curry was inedible. We just couldn't have another bite. We just left in between.
Please save your money and don't spoil your appetite just skip this place NOT WORTH A TRY.
Not entirely authentic, but decent
The ambience of this place is surreal, matches the price as much as the drinks do! But the food is not quite all the way there. Some of the starter items, the crispy meat items are really hard to mess up so they're good. The thai curry was..so-so. Very standard fare, while having great presentation, perhaps not all up to the mark on flavor for the mains.
All in all, cannot compare in the least to Benjarong for the authentic Thai experience but does well on its own as an indo-thai lounge bar which is what the ambience really suggests, than a fancy dining experience which is what the menu(and not the food!) suggests!
totally high :-)
I love thai food and i loved the food in this place. As good as Benjarong if u ve been there. We oredered some chicken basket and chilly with basil chicken for appetisers and we totally digged it. Main course was as good as the previous one and do close it with fried bananas for dessert.
Good place to get high on Thai
Went there on a Sunday evening with a few friends. The hostess was very cordial and we were seated at a table of our choosing. (The place was not really crowded). The ambience was calm with minimal decor elements, tastefully laid out. A slightly overlit and bare bar counter started at us from one corner. The tables were really set far apart and while some people may appreciate this, I thought it kinda disconnected us from everything else that was going on. The staff were wearing traditional Thai attire (or so it seemed) and seemed well trained. We placed our drinks order along with the starters (corn & lamb in a savoury cup). My friend ordered a margharita which was served the right way in the right glass and tasted pretty good. For maincourse, a portion of their pad thai was sufficient to go around to the 3 of us as was the side along with a bowl of green curry and rice. The Green curry 's texture led me to believe that either the coconut was not fresh or they added a little cornflour to thicken the sauce. The Jasmine rice smelt heavenly and we passed on dessert.
The service was prompt and attentive unlike most places where I've made it a habit to wave frantically to catch someone's attention. The entire experience was pretty worth the money spent though and certainly recommended.
Thai but not high
Last night, my friend and I were here as we were immensely craving for some Thai food and this was choice we wanted to try on as this was new!!
They have nicely made up indoor and outdoor section. We chose the outdoor section its been raining in Bangalore off-late and we wanted to have the best of the weather.
They took a while to set the table for us. While we went thru the menu, we realized they have a small and a nicely segregated veg and non-veg menu.
We kicked off our dinner with 2 glasses of Sula Red wine, Crispy Vegetables with sweet chilli sauce and bamboo shoot soup.
Heres a surprising fact. We were suggested we should go for a bottle of wine instead of by glass which can give us a total of 4 glasses of wine. Wine by glass is 350 bucks which means its 1400 bucks for 4 glasses. But, if we go by the bottle, which would also give us 4 glasses of wine costs 1650 bucks!! I guess, they need to re-work on their wine pricing!
Soup was excellent perfectly spiced, warm and soft bamboo shoots, some mushroom and cauliflower. The starter was a little too sweet for our taste. We do prefer it tangy and a dash of sweet in it but, not as sweet as it was made this day!
For main course, we wanted to savor veg red thai curry with jasmine rice. Unfortunately, theyd run out of jasmine rice and we had to settle with the basmati rice. This was good but, we were surely expecting more out of this. Probably coz of the better experience weve had in other authentic Thai fine-dines.
A meal for 2 approximately would be around 1800 bucks and its surely and expensive place to be at. I would surely love to go there again only if things get better here in terms of pricing, taste and choice!
Chinese Food Tossed with Basil
Oh how I wanted to like this restaurant! A thai restaurant in Indiranagar! I couldn't wait. I love thai cuisine - with its amazing medley of sour and sweet and spice, kaffir lime, sweet basil and lemongrass.
But, ingredients need to be understood, to be combined and cooked with intent and expertise.
Unfortunately, the food I ate at High on Thai was as Thai as my kickboxing - which means, not at all.
Ok, the Tom Kha soup was good, very good, and for a while hinted at a promise that was soon shattered.
The mango salad was okay, a bit too sweet, almost like chaat.
And then, the slide began.
The Phad Khee Mao was very average, if not sub par - dry, without much flavor, hard noodles not thai at all.
Then came the disastrous massaman curry - it was not edible, i have eaten massaman in Thai restaurants in Thailand, in the US, and this was not at all authentic
Another dish - I forget what it was - some kind of veg curry turned out to be chinese in its provenance.
My tears of disappointment added a bit of saltiness to the dishes, and drowned out what little flavor there was.
The place is beautifully decorated, its a nice location and the menu reads well.
If only the food lived up to its promise, we would definitely be high on thai.
Right now, I was low on. well, essentially chinese food with a bit of basil thrown in..
