Vicchuda Tom Yam resembles more of a hawker stall wannabe Thai restaurant type of place situated along the busy stretch of shoplots facing the LDP expressway. All I'm trying to say is that the restaurant's environment is a little bit of a let down. Then again, for the price you're paying, don't expect too much.
The soup was well flavored. The prawns were rather small. Then again, for RM4 per portion, its rather reasonable. Not a bad bowl of soup I must say.
One word - Ordinary. Any Chinese 'Tai Chow' could easily fry up something better.
The Barramundi (aka Siakap) steamed with lime and chili padi (RM40) was quite a steal. Fish would usually cost more than this. Anyway, the sauce wasn't exceedingly spicy, which would mask all the other flavors of the sauce. The fish didn't have any muddy taste which was a good thing as well. Taste wise, it could easily match any other Thai restaurant in KL.
All in all, Vicchuda's Tom Yam is a place that serves up Thai food at a very cheap price. Don't expect too much of the restaurant though. Its more of a mamak stall-like environment. Parking can be a pain at uptown. There is also another branch of Vicchuda's at Section7 Shah Alam.
