Saturday night. Very busy resaurant. A table was cleared and we were seated within a few minutes. Not the best table and close to a large group. We had to wait some time before the staff came to take our orders. I asked for a better table and to take good care of us. From that moment everything became much better. We got a nice table with a nice view on the pound. The food came fast, service dramatically improved.
The food:the salads are delicious, the tom yam as we would expect it, rich, tasty and spicy, the fried fish with the chilly and the chicken in the green curry were sooo Thai and sooo delicious. Of course we took the mango with the sticky rice for desert. All by all a very nice supper. We paid 200 ringit for the two of us, we only drank water.

A restaurant in the embassy of KL area popular with expats. The menu is extensive. My pomelo salad was good but not outstanding whilst the deep fried garoupa was overcooked and overly dusted with flour giving it more of a lightly battered coating. The accompanying chilli sauce had a slightly scorched taste - maybe only 'well caramelised' by some standards - so the dish was disappointing on a number of accounts. I suspect that it would probably be wiser to stick to your stock standard Thai dishes at this restaurant.
One seafood dish, (large river prawns), both brands of Thai beer and one bottle of red wine listed on the menus were not available on the evening and this was for menu choices for just one solo diner.
I had hoped Rama V would give the other excellent Thai restaurant in KL on J. Sultan Ismail a run for its money but sadly it wasn't to be, and by a wide margin, on nearly all counts.

Rama V serves fresh produce. Their fish is exceptionally good especially the Thai Shrimp. Its fine dining and the food deserves a 5 star rating. The ambiance could be a bit better but the friendly staff more tan make up for this. Many local families seem to dine here which gives it a cosy feel Also try the red snapper in the pot - really tasty.

We went with our typical stand-bys, satay chicken and pad thai prawns, but threw in a green curry and it turned out to be the best dish we had. Very authentic flavors, albeit service is a bit slow at least for Sunday brunch.
