Went to a very popular local eatery, Jae Oh, for a late dinner. Queued for almost an hour just to try the very popular Tomyum Mama (tomyum instant noodles with tons of ingredients). Other popular dishes include the thai salmon sashimi and various pork dishes.

If you are a durian lover, you must try After You's Durian Room, with the only store in Siam Paragon. The Durian with sticky rice Shibuya toast is a hit with durian junkies!! Must go very early to avoid the crowd!

Took the subway and Airport Rail to the airport. Check-in was fast as there were no queues at the TG Internet Check-in counters.

This aircraft has the older, colourful and very comfortable seats. Again, pillows were on each seat and blankets were handed out later by the crew. The crew on this flight were generally more junior than on the A350.

Older IFE interface. However the monitor is still touch-screen enabled, though not as sensitive as the ones on the A350.

Though that the menu of the flight would be available, but it led to an error page.

IFE was not updated to the September selection though. Decided to watch the animation movie sequel of Smurfs.

Not many special meal orders on this flight and after a quick distribution of SPML trays, the meal service commenced. Both the meal and bar carts were in the aisle this time round.

We were offered a choice of Chicken with noodles or Curry fishballs with rice. Tray came with a shrimp salad, warm roll and butter, a bottle of water and a thai-style dessert.

Shrimp salad for starter and Black and white glutinous rice with longan dessert. Both were great!

Main course was not bad with generous portions.

The other choice of green curry fishballs with rice and vegetables was excellent, but could be a tad too spicy for some.

Conclusion

Again, a very comfortable flight on Thai Airways on this short-haul. Even though the B777 is noisier compared to the newest A350, the seats and cabin are still as comfortable. Inflight offerings and service remained top-notch and is excellent for the 2hrs sectors.
