Great Thai Food and reasonably priced!

You just have to try this restaurant when you go to KL. It has been recognized by Malaysia Tatler as one of the best restaurants. Staff are very accommodating and provide a good advice in your selection of menu. Am very satisfied!

We came back after 4 years absence. This time around another birthday celebration albeit a smaller one compared to the last one. I give it average, a significant improvement from the terrible rating I gave it in 2011. What improved? The food tasted better overall especially the desserts the steamed pumpkin and the kueh tako. What remained poor? Service was... More

Ate on a Monday evening with a friend. The service was very good from the moment we walked in. Almost too good & attentive as we could almost feel the stares from some of the staff. Apart from having to ask for the beers we ordered twice, the service was very good. The staff were friendly and wore a smile.... More

We loved to eat at Rama V when we lived in Kuala Lumpur. Was one of the places we always loved to go back to. The atmosphere, the service, the food.. all great. Try the traditional thai entrees like the Green Curry Chicken, the Steamed Sea Bass in chili and lime and cilantro .. we miss the place very much... More

I ordered the set lunch and experienced one of the dullest platefuls of Thai cuisine imaginable. Under spiced curry. Run-of-the-mill spring rolls. It was a bit like going to see a much-anticipated play and sleeping through the entire performance. Perhaps the dinner menu is better...let's hope so. HOT TIP: If you want decent Thai cuisine go to the little stall... More

Colourful blue dumplings were delicious. The service was great too. Highly recommend the Massaman also but if you are having a drink avoid having to buy the 1L Evian water bottle.

Went here with my wife the other evening with my wife on a recommendation from our hotel. We love Thai food and the food was very tasty. Unfortunately there were only a couple of other people there who left early and in the end were sitting on our own. Therefore it lacked atmosphere. Prices were slightly above average. Nice spicy...

Don't believe any of the reviews that say this place has a nice ambiance. They must be written by friends of the restaurant. It is very run down and dirty. The furniture is marked/damaged, walls stained, menus falling apart and soiled, and placemats ripped. Our water glasses all had white residue and my wife's had lipstick marks from the last... More
