The inside scoop on the newly opened Thai seafood restaurant that’s just popped up inside the razzle-dazzle façade of ION Orchard.

In Thai, Soht & Baay means 'fresh and good' – that also happens to be the motto of the restaurant. We suggest you avoid entering through the fifth floor entrance; the fourth floor is much more welcoming. We recommend the crunchy and tender puu nim phriktal dum, black pepper soft-shell crab with kaffir lime leaves and garlic. As for the usually complex but delicate Thai stalwarts – yum talay (seafood salad), tom yum kung and gang paa kung sub (eastern woodland-style red curry) – they were fresh but doused so heavily in chillis that they were hard to stomach.
