Kantok Restaurant @ Burasari Resort, Phuket

Dining-Area

Kantok restaurant at Burasari Resort will awe you with its lush gardens, open kitchen concept and tranquil water features. Their prices are understandbly higher given the classy settings of the restaurant, and is about 3-4 times more expensive than the hole-in-the-wall places. If a clean and relaxed dining environment is what you are looking for in Patong, Kantok should be on top of your list.

Water-Feature

The extensive menu features mainly Thai dishes along with a few unique ones such as Red Duck Curry. Food wise, everything tasted pretty good with healthy portions and they are nicely presented. The only downside about Kantok is the slow kitchen service because the dishes took considerably long to arrive despite us being the only customers there.

No.6 Restaurant @ Patong, Phuket

The Patong beach area is a tourist hub by purpose, so authentic local Thai food is pretty hard to come by. Even the locals would shake their heads when you ask them for recommendations.
Among all the touristy restaurants along Prabaramee Road, the No.6 Restaurant could be the busiest of them all (another equally famous one is the No. 9 restaurant) and a queue forms outside the small establishment at night. This is a rare sight in Phuket and it’s a testament to the popularity of this restaurant, which owes much to the many great reviews on TripAdvisor.

Special-Fried-Noodle

Special Fried Yellow Noodle – decent at best, a long short from the best one we had in Bali.

Tom-Kha-Talay

Tom Kha Talay (Coconut seafood soup) – this was the best dish of the meal. The seafood given includes prawn, crab, squid and fish and all of them infused the milky soup with a fresh and sweet flavor.

Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine @ Jalan U Thant, KL

Pool-side-dining

Fancy a Thai fine dining experience? Rama V could fit the bill perfectly. Not to mention the beautiful and serene pond view that will definitely make an impression.

Soft-Shell-Crab-Mixed-Salad

The extensive a la carte menu is affordable and could be considered reasonable for a restaurant of such standards. Mixed Salad with Crispy Soft Shell Crab @ RM24 is worth ordering just for the chunky and delicious soft shell crab alone.

Chor-Ladda

Chor Ladda @ RM22 – flower shaped dumpling stuffed with chicken and peanut. Looks pretty and all but we felt quite let down by the chewy and simplistic sweet and nutty taste. I do however, have to admit that I ordered this from the 19 possible appetizers solely because of how it looked on the photo.

Samira Thai Restaurant @ Sentul Park, Kuala Lumpur

If you liked dining at a private, Zen-ish restaurant such as Subak then you will surely like Samira as well. Nestled deep in the Sentul Park, Samira is a Thai restaurant set within a tropical atmosphere surrounded with lush greeneries. If you are wondering, the restaurant is located just opposite the KL Performance Arts Center, operating side by side with the Sentul Park Koi Centre.

The dining hall offers the guests a beautiful, panaromic view of Sentul Park’s lake.

thai-hor-mok

Food variety is good and it would take you at least a couple of visits to try them all. You might notice that the portion of the dishes is not large because they are prepared for two as stated in the menu. Since it was our first time here, we ordered mostly the signature dishes.
The Thai Hor Mok (Fish Custard) @ RM23 sounds new but you might have known it as Thai Otak-Otak. This delicious dish is generously loaded with seafood (mostly ground fish) and filled with a flavorful blend of coconut milk, chili paste and Thai herbs and spices. Compared with the other Thai Otak-Otak I have had at other places, Samira’s version is moist with an almost creamy texture that goes extremely well with rice.
