Although I don really come to Desa Park City, it certainly is one of a nice neighborhood place to chill in. Everything seems so calm and peaceful, with people jogging around, playing tai chi, taking their dogs for a stroll and just feel nice to be here. – Soi Thai Restaurant
[UPdate – NO Longer in Operation]
Not only that, as Desa Park City also have a little eatery place that smack right in the middle of the field and host quite a number of restaurant. One of the restaurant that I previously went that serve pretty nice food is a Italian restaurant right at the corner. Now, dropping by here again is a new Thai restaurant that open its door since last year October and heard quite good feedback on it.
Soi Thai Restaurant its like a hidden gem in this neighborhood that serve nice authentic Thai Food. I got lost when I first look for this restaurant as it always appears in my mind that all restaurant are only on ground floor, as this restaurant is located on the first floor.
Soi Thai offer very pleasent dining experience with simple interior and their staff is very helpful
Price wise are very reasonable and there are quite a range to choose from.
Pandan Leaf and Lemon Grass Drink, Thai Ice Tea,
Started off with usual Thai dining with kerabu, Green Papaya Salad with Dried Shrimp and Peanuts. I just love the taste of it, sourish which is good for stomach before heading to main course and its quite spicy with little chili padi being mix along, and a bit of salty cuttle fish just blend the taste well.
Soi Thai Combo
This is a combination of pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter.
One thing to hunt for in this plate is the Pandan chicken. Well marinated and fried to perfection as the meat is ginger pale yellowish with a bit hard crust on the edge and its soft yet aromatic.
We ended up order another Thai Style Otak-otak as it is so good that each of us took 2. Steam to its softness like near eating jelly to my likings, and some prefer it to be harden abit. For me, I am okay with either version.
Thai Green Curry Chicken pairs well with rice.
Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chili Sauce sourish with lime base and we drank it like soup. Spicy yet its good till my tears nearly drip.
Something that you must not miss is their Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam (4 to 5 persons). By the smells of it already thrill us to drink in asap with its sourish spicy smell that poke thru our nose is something that we can wait to put our hands on. To our delight, the taste is as good as what we smell. Spicy yet the soup is filled with seafood taste and sourish after taste. Just a perfect pot of Tomyam. – REcommended~
This is something worth to recommend Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck mild in curry taste, with duck meat is quite soft.
According to my friend, this is a very rare receipi that not many restaurant in Klang Valley able to cook this dish – Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish, is actually one of a signature dish in the restaurant. Deep fried fish shower with mild spicy flavor and skin is crispy with soft meat filling. – REcommended
Pineapple Fried Rice
Thai Style Kicap prawns
One of my favourite dish that I would not miss to try out is Authentic Pad Thai. Turns out to be good as the glass noodle is thin and small which it is suppose to be and fried with ‘wok hei’ covered with omelet. Mix all up is exactly the taste I have in Bangkok. Just that Malaysia version do not add sugar. Recommended
Coconut and lemongrass jelly with passion fruit
Water Chestnuts and jackfruits in coconut milk (Thub Thim Krob)
Black Sticky Rice with coconut milk
Mango Sticky Rice topped with coconut milk
Sweet Tapioca served in coconut milk
Steamed sweet banana topped with Vanilla Ice Cream
At the end of the meal, since we are few days ahead and decided to celebrate Ken’s Bday along. 😀
Cannot deny that, this Thai restaurant is quite good around the neigbourhood and its worth to try as we are quite surpise with the taste that they can offer. Certainly will come back again, along if you ask me where to hunt for nice Thai food, this restaurant will falls into one of my recommendation list. 🙂
