I tend to do a quick reviews check and make sure location is convenient before committing to buy and Café Tien Tien seemed to come out ok.
I booked a table via email as per instructions and this was simple enough. We were the first to arrive at the restaurant and during our quick meal there were other diners, mainly couples but it tended to remain very quiet. The fact it was early on a week night was probably the main reason for this.
We were first served a flavoursome tom yam soup with a few prawns in it. Flavours were well balanced but it wasn't the best tom yam we've had. Tasted a little synthetic but it was acceptable.
Next was had san choi bow which again was strong in flavour but not a stand out as were the fried chicken wings.
All in all the meal was worth the money we paid in quantity alone and it was a good deal. It didn't make me want to return however as the food just wasn't special enough.
The restaurant decor is quite attractive - dark wood and Eastern and I can imagine when it's busy and buzzing and there is candlelight it would be quite a nice place to dine. Sadly the day we were there it lacked ambience and the place just felt a touch too empty.
