Something quite unique at Ah Loy Thai, Janella loves ordering up the Butter Calamari. A weakness for all things crunchy, Janells tells us that the squid is perfection (“soft yet slightly firm”). The sauce is a great accompaniment to rice and the slightly sour mango slices balance out the rich buttery flavours.

The best pasta dishes are (almost) always made with fresh pasta, if you’re keen on getting your hands on some amazing pasta dishes Janella has got you covered.

The Raviolo Con Carne Di Manzo Al Gorgonzola (pictured above), consists of small parcels of pasta stuffed with minced beef and served with a light gorgonzola sauce.
