Beginning of last year, we already had a different “Noche Buena”. Instead of hosting a party at home, we all head off to Muscat and dine at one of the famous restaurants in Muscat. It has been our own way of celebrating Jesus’ birthday. The important thing is that we find time to be with each even being away from our love ones back home. We spread and share the inspiration of love that light up this Christmas to one another.

But this year, we preferred something new and classy. So, on the night of December 24th, together with our close friends, we all gathered at Shang Thai located in The Wave in Seeb area of Muscat, Oman.

I have heard about this restaurant from my best friend Jhonna who recommended this place long before. Shang Thai is one of the exceptional dining concepts of Bur Al Hickman Hospitality (BAH) along with the popular Pizza Express. The restaurant is known of its fine, trendy, modern, and authentic Thai dining. It has already its first branch operating in Al Khuwair but the second branch is set in modern and relaxing ambiance along the marina of The Wave Muscat.

We were ardently welcomed by one of the staff and a table was arranged at the outdoor patio. For a large group and with small children, it was more ideal for us to dine outside considering also the tapered space inside the restaurant and some few Omani and Expats diners which we taught needs a little space of privacy and comfort. The cozy atmosphere outside is also inviting and we have all the freedom to chat in a considerable level.

Some few minutes, a free shrimp chips were served as an appetizer. I nibbled some pieces and really taste good with its signature dip.

The starter soup is the Tom Yam Goong (3.2 OR), a spicy hot and sour soup made of lemon grass, and some kaffir lime leaves, and some pieces of prawns. I love the blend of savory and salty that warm up my appetite for the night.

Some meat and poultry dishes include the Gai Phad Med Ma Muang (4.100) a wok-fried chicken top with cashew nuts, bell papers, and onions; the Gai Phad Kra Tiem (4.100), a stir fried chicken with garlic and pepper; Nuea Phad Khieng Sod (6.200) another stir fried beef with oyster sauce and ginger.

My husband was quite intrigued with Talay Ruam Yang (8.600) a charcoal grilled mixed seafood of prawns, squid, king fish that came with a spicy sauce.

Yong Chow Fried Rice (3.600) is very good at a price of 3.600 OR. It is Chinese style fried rice mixed meat and vegetables.

The only critique I can make is that the individual dishes come in small servings ( I know because it is fine dining, literally) and for a large group, we are a bit dissatisfied but other than the food is superb and delicious. What I like most of this food destination is its own brand of Contemporary Thai Dining. You can truly taste the highest quality of food and be accommodated with friendly and warm staff. Added to that, I love the venue that provides a tranquil and private atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis. With our meals and four big bottles of mineral water come around 52.200 Omani Rials all in all.
