One of the place that I recently visit certainly make it a hidden gem around the area. It was a surprise to me that, in that area actually hid one nice restaurant, although I went to KLPAC for some local stage show a few times. Neither did I know there is actually that exist here. KLPAC is actually like a new dimension as you enter the guard house with tress flanking on both side that will lead you to a abandon house smack right in the middle on the narrow road. Just follow the flow you will reach to another end of the park is Samira by Asian Terrace.
Here we are today hunting for Thai Food that is located directly opposite KLPAC and you will see this red brick wall standing tall with bamboo tress hidden behind it.
Right here in the park, this is where the restaurant is hidden in that you actually sit in it, you will get to enjoy the view of the park and pond.
Getting into the restaurant is pretty tricky, as you will be entering a little maze and you will reach this wooden bridge with a huge pond next to it.
As follow the flow of the wooden bridge, you will reach the main area of the restaurant.
The ambiance of the place is truely amazing, that you got transported back to another world. Found out that the previous owner runs Japanese restaurant and it was taken over that now serve Thai Cuisine.
Surely it is a nice place to have quiet and peaceful dinner with family and friends, or would make it a nice place for your special occasions.
or you can be seated outside chill on the wooden bench and table.
overlook the pond and park.
In Thai food range is hard for me not to order this few drinks – Ginger and Lemongrass, Lemongrass and Basil drink.
The first serving caught me by surprise, as it the first time I came accross Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad @ RM20, fried to perfection that it is very crispy as you bite you can still hear the cracking sound. Easily to be peel off , eat along with mango salad gives you another new bursting flavor. – Recommended!
Vietnamese Yam Salad is another new dish to me, that hardly come across a Thai restaurant serve such a unique entree dish. Yam was fried to crisp shower with some lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Sourly is not just the taste as to make your taste bud to wake up up, chilli padi is added in to make it sourly spicy.
Another one of my favourite entry as I just love sour dish to kick start with. Huge juicy prawns top along with pamelo, as you take one full bite of it, mouth had been burst with sourish juicy pamelo follow by spiciness at the end. Thai Pomelo Salad is something that you must not miss for as start. RM 24 – REcommended~
Tom Yam Goong is one of a thai soup that you must not miss too. If this soup is serve pippin hot then it would have been a perfect dish. serve along with seafood – prawns, squid and fish fillets. @ RM30
Grilled Norwegian Salmon With Basil Leaf is something that I truely enjoy, as I do not really love basil taste on my food, yet they are able to tone it done and blend well with the gravy giving it a perfect mix of balance with the thick sauce that cook with mix herb.
Southern Thai Masaman Curry With Beef @ RM 28 will be a perfect pair with white rice. Gravy is thick yet slightly sweet in spicy curry, and rich with spices that cooked with tender beef slices is just delicious.
Traditional Thai Tom Kha with Chicken
Steamed Squid with Chilli and Lime Juice @ RM 28 – juicy squid brought to steam first then drench in sourish soup. I love the soup and chewy squid with my rice.
Grilled Fish Fillet in Banana Leaf (Otak-Otak) @ RM 32
When this dish was serve River Prawns with Lemongrass Sauce, we were like ‘wahhhhhh’ as it was set on the table it feels like the prawn got rape as it is tremendous huge prawn that was place on the table. I had 3 of this that making it particularly like I am having the whole plate already as prawns were very fresh, with roe and the lemongrass sauce @ RM35
Pineapple Fried Rice that smells very fragrant, cannot deny it is with pineapples, and spices akin to kunyit @ RM18
Do not ask me why, as I just love Phad Thai Noodle with Prawn and Egg @ RM16 and I would say its one of the recommended dish that make it well fried with ‘wok hei’ and mix all ingredient in, just comes to my liking.
Pineapple Lamb in Coconut Sauce is another new dish to me. Mild in coconut taste with slightly thick gravy yet hint of pinapple sour sweet taste is detected after that. I just place this whole bowl infront of me. – Recommended
Spicy Chicken With Chef’s Special Sauce @ RM 22. Chicken is well prepared with outer layer fried to crips with meat is soft. It is very fragrant with spices in thick coconut milk. Another star for the night.
Pan Fried Banana with Ice Cream @ RM12
Mango Sticky Rice @ RM 18, that mango is fragrantly sweet and by dipping a bit of coconut gravy with sticky rice and eat along all in one bite gives you the satisfaction.
At the end of the meal, all of us were satisfied with the amazing dish that this restaurant have to offer as I find the food price is decently price along on the quality that we had, surely we will return again for more. It will be another recommended Thai Restaurant in my list.
