The atmosphere of Rama V is pleasant. It looks a tad shabby on the outside but the inside is nicely decorated.
The menu is extensive offering even ostrich meat. We had the famous chor ladda - blue flower shaped dumplings (RM22). The filling was pleasant but the dumpling skin a tad thick. It was a bit heavy and sticky for a starter. We also ordered claypot glass noodles(RM32), tom yam soup served in a young coconut (RM22) and grilled chicken (RM24). The glass noodles were decent but not very special. The soup was tasty but a very small serving. The chicken was good though a bit fatty.
All in all I felt the above meal with two drinks at RM 170 was a bit too pricey for what it was. One juice was about RM15 and alcoholic beverages RM20 and up. This is before tax and service. Additionally rice is charged at RM5 per person. We took rather little. The waiter serves the rice out of a pot rather than it coming in individual bowls from the kitchen. We accepted some when offered. This was a mistake as a scoop of rice each cost us RM10 in total.
The service was attentive and cannot be faulted but the price is high and menu only so so.
