I must have walked past Superthai a few times without noticing the restaurant on the first floor, upstairs from Capitol Nasi Dagang and Softsrve Ice Cream Bar. I am pleased to find the interior spacious. The décor, though minimal, is cosy. The bare brick wall running along the upper half of the wall and cement bench on one side give it a rustic ambience.
Superthai is popular for its individual set meals, available for both lunch and dinner. Most come with an iced lemongrass drink and fresh fruit for dessert.
These are priced from RM10 (all prices nett). Noodles sets include BBQ Pork Neck Noodles, Tom Yum Noodles, Beef Noodles and Phad Thai while rice sets include Green Curry Chicken, Minced Pork Basil and BBQ Pork Belly Special.

For bigger groups, the a la carte menu has much to offer, from tom yum soup, salad, otak-otak and Thai fishcake to curries, grilled pork and vegetables.
Sweet and sour Pork Knuckle
Flame-grilled Pork Neck
Scrumptious Basil Leaf Minced Pork
Squid stuffed with minced pork and prawn
Tom Yum Seafood
To complete the experience, Tom Yum Seafood (RM27) is enough for 3-4 persons to share. It has prawns, fish, squid as well as mushroom. Not too pedas or sour. You can also order a single serve of tom yam soup at RM8.
The dishes go best with plain white rice although there are fried rice with crab meat, luncheon meat fried rice and pineapple fried rice on the menu.
Pineapple Fried Rice
The Pineapple Fried Rice (RM18) is served in a hollowed pineapple half and makes a complete individual meal as it has luncheon meat, deboned chicken, raisins and peanuts.
