We started with som tam. it was salty and lacked chilies. The porky curry was really good. Be sure to order it with white rice. The wok fried squid worked best with the fried rice.

I ordered a to go food from Nav. Flavor was a bit bland not even close to authentic thai food I've tasted in Thailand. I mean, next time I'm craving for Thai food I'd go somewhere else like Peoples Palace.

I used to dislike Thai food since I find it too spicy. But for some reason, for the past few months, I’ve been hooked to Thai dishes. It all started last June. I went to Silk (Eastwood), Siam (Ayala Cebu), Simply Thai (Greenbelt), and now Nav (the nearest of them all… Brgy. Kapitolyo).

Our fascination with NAV started when one of my colleagues suddenly gave us fliers of this new Thai restaurant called NAV Modern Thai Cuisine and she suggested that we dine there to hold my dear boss’ despedida. :(

The place was pretty small and parking is very limited. Perhaps only 2 to 3 cars can park (unless Uncle Moe’s and Slice n’ Dice are not stingy with their parking lots). The place can accommodate perhaps around 30 people the most.

What I noticed was the rather cute interior. It was able to maximize the limited space by hanging some of its decorations and using some of the shelves to serve as the place to store the glasses and pitchers of water.

We ordered a lot since we were 10 hungry publishers craving for a good lunch. Our mistake, though, was that we ordered a tad too much.

We started our meal off with the Crab Cake with sweet chili sauce (PHP230). To be honest, it was pretty ordinary deep-fried patties. I also found it a bit bland and the sauce was nothing to rave about since it tasted exactly like the bottled sweet chili sauce available in supermarkets.

The Shrimp Rolls (PHP250) was different though. It was tasty! The rolls have vermicelli noodles inside and it was a rather filling appetizer.

Next served were Nav’s Pomelo Salad (PHP300) and Crisped Catfish Salad (PHP245). The pomelo added was fresh and the bits of chicken and nuts truly complemented the fruit. The Crisped Catfish Salad (with green mangoes) was pretty good too. It was not fishy like the other catfish salad served by other restaurants. The spice and sweetness of the salad made it one great dish.

After the two appetizers and two salads, we were starting to feel full since most dishes were good for 4-5 people (but the servers said that it was good for 2-3 only). But since we ordered it already, let the chewing continue.

The next dishes served were the Pad Thai (PHP280), Nav’s Bagoong Rice (PHP225), Crispy Tilapia (seasonal price), Green Curry (PHP240) and Penang Curry (PHP420).

The Pad Thai sure was a heavy dish to consume since it was a dish full of carbs. The noodles were well cooked and it was flavorful. The glutton in me could not stop get two servings of it.

The bagoong rice was your typical bagoong rice. Redundant but true.

The Green Curry with chicken bits and bamboo shoots was pretty good. I am not a curry person but this curry was quite good. It was a bit spicy though for me (but my colleagues did not find it spicy at all).

I didn’t bother trying the Penang Curry with beef brisket since all those who tried it said that it was so spicy. If they find the Green Curry mild and the Penang Curry spicy, then it must be really spicy.

Last dish served was the Wok Fry Tender Pork (PHP250). I wasn’t able to really taste this one as I was trying to save space for ChaTime.

We didn’t order dessert but Nav treated us with two servings of their Pandan Crème (PHP140). It was a delightful dessert. The texture reminded me of egg pie. Actually, it tasted like egg pie only it was green. Nonetheless, I loved it.

The good:
Great interiors. Fantastic music. Service was pretty good. Pretty quick wifi.
Fresh spring rolls with shrimp and meat was very good.

The bad:
Pomelo salad tasted too strong. No balance of flavor.
Nav chicken curry didn't taste thai. It's like a home experiment of Thai cuisine.
Pad thai and thai iced tea were meh.

The price was whoa. Too much for the food quality.

The area near the kitchen is a bit smokey.

The verdict:
It was just ok. Better than Thai Dara. Price is too much though so don't think I'll be coming back.

Food exploring time again.

My frend chef suggested this thai cuisine at kapitolyo...
Catfish fried rice (top left)
Peanut Beef curry (top right)
Wok fried squid with soy (bottom left)
Tom yum goong (bottom right)

Quite pricey. Totalled 1400 at bill just for these. We were quite full. So we thought pwede sana magshare ang apat. SC included so no need to add tip

The tom yum was full of spices... I can taste the lemon grass, ginger, wansoy, onions blend together in the soup... Gumuguhit pa nga. With mushrooms and shrimp.

The squid' breading- squid proportion 3:1.. Haha. You can easily undress the squid from the breading... But because it was tossed in the soy based sauce, it was ok.

The rice was full of flavor... And the curry... The beef was super tender. And mejo maalat daw. For ok nmn.

Verdict: food combination was too spice-flavored.

Staff were frendly.

Thai food here was good. I like their bagoong rice chicken satay(forgot the spelling, haha!) and pad thai of course. I'm not a fan of thai foods, but i just loved their dishes. Kinda expensive but its worth it. The place was cozy and the staffs were nice, but the serving of food was kinda slow, but its worth the wait 100849996

Our first time. The food was quite good and delicious. We had the fried spring rolls, the wok fried squid and the nav chicken curry. Yum! Spicyness was mild for my palette. (I like hot food).

The place looks like a hole-in-the-wall what with a very small entrance but it opens up to a roomy back area that's clean and warmly lit. Good for a quiet and peaceful dinner.

Will come back here again!
