T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Thai -

Feast on fine Thai cui­sine in an oa­sis of calm in­cor­po­rat­ing serene views of a quaint gar­den and a tran­quil pond.

Whet the ap­petite with chor ladda, a range of flower-shaped dumplings with its unique pea flower-blue skin en­cas­ing cold stuff­ing of hearty sweet radish and peanuts.

A must-try rec­om­men­da­tion is the roasted duck red curry with ly­chee. The pip­ing hot, creamy thick curry over chunky morsels of meat is im­mensely sat­is­fy­ing with its herb-in­duced un­der­tones and fruity sweet­ness from the ly­chee; a sec­ond serv­ing of rice would likely be called for.

Rama V’s sig­na­ture steamed seabass in manow sauce is served whole and deboned. It is min­i­mally sea­soned ex­cept for a bub­bling gravy of lime juice, chilli and gin­ger im­part­ing a mouth-wa­ter­ing ef­fect to the dish.

Of course, no Thai food sam­pling is com­plete with­out tom yam. Rama V’s photo-wor­thy ver­sion has a large river prawn in young co­conut soup and the flavour­ful med­ley of lemon­grass, lime juice, chilli and prawn broth emanates a nicely tem­pered amount of heat. Tra­di­tional Thai dessert of wa­ter chest­nut ru­bies with jack­fruit in co­conut milk is a cool­ing way to end the meal.
