The Garden Farley


  • Ajileh Tomyam Qribut Udang Galah


Tom Yam is both hot and sour, and it's one of the main signature dishes that defines Thai flavor. So if you’re craving for Tom Yam, then head to The Garden Farley and order Tom Yam Udang Ajileh from Ajileh Tomyam Qribut Udang Galah stall. Just look at the size and color of the lobsters! Succulent and juicy, one does not have to go to Thailand to savour this mouthwatering dish. What’s more, they even have Tom Yam Spaghetti in their menu! This cross cultural mix of Thai flavors and Italian spaghetti is not as alarming as it sounds. In fact, it's one of the most delicious and flavorsome dish we have ever eaten.
