Or if it's on the online selection list and I missed it, would you tell me exactly which one to pick to ensure the Thai menu set?

Thanks!
on the first menu of the online list it is towards the bottom. 'exclusive thai set menu A B C' etc. also at the very bottom of the list is the 'thia beef/chicken set menu'

Thanks QTFLYER, but I still don't see it. I think the reason I don't see it is because of the route, correct?

I'm flying NRT-BKK in TG F, and on the return I have a TG C flight from BKK-TPE, which also doesn't have the Thai set menu. But the two online pre-order menus (NRT-BKK and BKK-TPE) are slightly different, which leads me to believe that the Thai set menu options exist, but not on my flights. Is this correct?

Perhaps they're only on F flights ex-BKK?

I'm considering trying the prawn curry lhr-bkk and the XXXXXX from bkk-cdg

There are quite a bit of lamb dishes, any experience here with those? The thai set menu seems enticing, does anyone here with experience trying it think it a better alternative to the pad thai??

My wife still wants to try the lobster even though I've told her its a real hit and miss, and mainly a big miss it seems.

We have choice of selecting a menu from bkk-dps. Is it the same as F whereas even though this is only a two class 777-200 and in C, if you do not like your order you may chose from the standard onboard offers. Problem I could see would be is there are more pax and a second option could be very limited?

Any suggestions are welcomed.


edit: ah, just read they may have the pad thai in the FCL, so probably not the best choice now.

It may be just my browser, but from the thai site, the menu items were pictured smaller and in less quantity than http://www.prthaiairways.com/travel-...-JUL-2013.html which I found to be the better (and not watermarked) of what I have found so far.

the lamb dishes in F are good, sometimes a bit overcooked for my taste (like it medium rare). the phad thai is very bland in comparison to what you can get in Thailand

I had the special Thai set meal in F on last nights BKK FRA in F. It was absolutely wonderful, shrimp salad to burn your socks off and great presentation, more than I could get through> I would highly recommend it to anyone looing for an authentic Thai meal, it is at the bottom of the pre order menus.

It seem that the Special Thai Set menu changes from time to time. I'm flying Tuesday BKK-FRA and chose the following set:

Exclusive Thai Menu Set Included
- Grilled Pork Neck Spicy Salad Thai Style
- Pork With Vermicelli Wrapped With Chinese Cabbage Clear Soup
- Roasted Duck With Grape In Red Curry
- Stir-fried Spinach With Garlic And Chili
- Thai Style Omelet
- Steamed Thai Hom Mali Rice
- Banana In Coconut Milk

Not a huge fan of the Chinese Cabbage Clear Soup (in general, never had TG F's version) but all of the special sets have the same soup.

On the way back I'm trying the Green Curry with Chicken in F and then the Beef Masaman on the way to SIN.

It's a matter of fact that TG cross-caters.

It's cross-caters because it's Thai foods. Like street stalls and high end restuarants have the same Thai recipes but the quality of ingradients may be different.

It's not western food where Lobster dish only serves in high end restuarants.

Thai Air have won awards for the quality of their economy class food so why not give it a try? It may be the same as in Y but does that make it inferior? It will also come in a porcelain dish in C or on a nice plate in F. You might find it tastier than the F class fillet steak where the apparently succulent red centre is actually dye.

Ask any visitor to Thailand who actually gets out of their fancy hotel and eats where the Thais eat, "Where did you eat the best Thai food? The answer will not be a five star hotel but more likely a roadside stall.

The quality of Thai food unlike western food bears no correlation to the quality of the surroundings and almost no correlation to price. In fact the reverse might be true, the chicken you eat at a tiny family restaurant could well have been running around the family yard the day before whereas your 5 star chicken will be sourced from a battery farm where it has been injected with growth hormones while alive, water when dead and then probably frozen.

well said, andyptrav
I would in Thailand never bring guests in 5 star hotels to eat thai food!

The Phad Thai in TG F is one of the worst thai food you can get!

Thai food on a bone china plate and washed down with some Dom. How bizzare is that? The casserole dish (J) might pass, but the lack of tiny little pink paper napkins and a roll of toilet paper on the table is really sub-standard.

Further more the Thai dishes are never served with a spoon (automaticlly).

I stopped years ago flying TG internationally, but I remember the Thai food was always too blund for me.

Well, they take into account that their international clientele is not used to spicy food. My ant visiting last January complained the curry was too spicy for her to eat.
