“Great food with reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Visited the restaurant with my family. We love the duck curry, fried chicken, Tom Yam & Baked Fish.

I love the healthy rice served at the restaurant.

However the restaurant is awfully packed & the seating arrangement wasnt comfortable.

“overrated”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

heard so much about this restaurant and visited the outlet at Aman Suria.
Food was average, pricey and service slow.
The green curry was too sweet while the pineapple rice tasteless.
Portion served is small.
The place is packed on weekends and service is slow.

“Pricey, meagre portions & poor taste.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Maybe I went to the wrong branch (Aman Suria one) but my experience at this place was sadly very disappointing. The starter of Miaeng Kum was interesting but taste was just okay. The Pineapple fried rice and green curry were the worst I have ever tasted in my life! The fried rice was full of curry powder taste and the green curry was too sweet, not spicy at all and had a few small pieces of chicken in it. Kiamsap.. The Thai style pan fried kai lan was the only dish that was delicious. Portions were meagre for the price they charged and the atmosphere (or lack of it).
One word, AVOID. Or at least this branch.

“Superb food, fast service”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is always packed so be sure to make a reservation. We've been here a few times and enjoy the tom yum koong, pucuk paku, kangkung belacan, steamed fish with lemon juice & chili and red curry chicken. The prawns stir-fried in tom yum sauce was tasty, with generous sized prawns and lots of fresh spices, onions and abalone mushroom. The only thing that didn't quite hit the spot was the green curry chicken. Service was fast despite the restaurant being packed.

“Not too bad abit pricy”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner for two. Came at 6:25 was told that reservation needed. However we could still eat till 7:30pm. Ambience was ok. Amazing thing was we ordered our food at about 6:40 the food came after ten minutes which was superbly fast.
What we orderd.
fish cake (5pieces) rm12
TOm som fish small rm16
THai kang kung rm15
RIce rm3
Thai jasmine syrup rm3.50
GReen aroma lemon grass rm8

Well tom som was abit pricy and let down. Too much lemon grass n only two tiny (1.5inches) fish cutlet n some mushroom. Basically we are drinking the soup which we had to filter due to overloaded lemon grass. But tasted not bad though.

The drinks were very good n refreshing.

The fish cake was not chewy and not spicy enough.


KAng kung was the best. Fried with minced meat n belachan. Great combination and spiced fantastically.

NEver go without reservation. Opened at 6pm by 6:30 full house. Else ull be eating as if youre choking.
