When I first saw the restaurant than is housed in a bungalow along Jalan Damai (Off Jalan Tun Razak) the first thing that came to mind was “Wow not bad”. The environment and ambiance of the restaurant is really nice. I liked the how the restaurant is department to different area, all which are very cozy.
My colleagues and I were early to arrive, so we sat and chatted in a “sun roof” area with our welcome serai (lemon grass) drink which was really cooling and refreshing. I think there was a hint of mint into. Really good.
The dining table, made of wood… very very nice.
My fresh orange juice. I totally like the fact that the orange is 100% pure orange juice, no salt or sugar added or water.
The spring roll came first. Very nice and juice on the inside, and fried just nice on the outside. Rating: 8.5/10
The salad came next. I think this is the mango kerabu. Shredded raw mangos with vinegar, sugar, and chilie padis. Nice. Rating: 8.5/10
One thing I don’t get about Tom Yam. Some say the original Tom Yan is clear, like this one. But some say it’s red hot. Either way, this is really good. Very sweet sour and spicy and full of the typical Tom Yam fragrant. Rating: 9/10
The curry tasted ok. Too much coconut milk though. Rating: 8/10
Stir fried chicken. The taste of the chicken seasoning was really familiar … but I could not cut out what the chef was using. Some beancurd I think. Rating: 8/10
This tofu dish is cooked with luffa? Snake gourd? Not sure what the vegetable is called but it’s long and slim in shape… looks like a hard crust 4 legged beans with 8 or more legs… Rating: 6/10
We ate one or two more dish… but I was too bust chatting and eating to snap their pictures. One dish came in a pattaya form. Tomato based filling kind of thing. I didn’t touch the dish after a bite because the tomato filling smelt burnt. I think the chef burnt the bottom of the filling and saved the top part for the dish. Eeek! Rating: 5/10
