For a casual Thai dining that will not blow your budget, head to Chern Ka... a new dining spot in the heart of Georgetown (4th Street Club along Lebuh Tye Sin) that would put an end to your Thai food cravings. It was previously occupied as Tu Go Liang Steamboat but has since replaced with this new Thai restaurant. Chern Ka offers a rather big Thai menu... featuring an array of familiar Thai delights. The price points are budget-friendly and the dining atmosphere is homey and relaxed.

We had a dishes of theirs- from appetizers to mains and soup. Not all dishes suited our taste buds but some did score well. Those fared well were the Thai-styled Grilled Pork Meat and Cha Omh. The former one had a tender-meaty texture with a delightful smokiness to it. The Cha Omh was equally delicious... reasonably seasoned with nice wok-hei to it. The Som Tum and Tom Yum Seafood on the other hand, were less-impressive. The former choice was too spicy to our liking and same applied to the Tom Yum. But the latter one was not like any Tom Yum we had... it lacked the unique Tom Yum flavor and possessed a peculiar burnt smell... which we presumed it was caused by the singed Dried Chili. Other dishes were pretty much standard average.
