Ruay Thai @ Taman Desa (Non Halal – serves pork)
Ooooo man, their Tom Yum Seafood Soup is da’ bomb. Seriously. It is flavorful, filled with spices, packed with heat and comes with a generous portion of fillings/seafood. Sure, my forehead started sweating after a few spoons in but it was soooo worth it. We only recently discovered this eatery but we have visited it a few times now and still cant get enough. Food here is authentically delicious, it is affordably priced, generously portioned and arrives fast. Oooo, do try their Tom Yum Seafood Fried Rice too. It is popular and after tasting it – you’d know why. It is legit tasty. Yum.

Khunthai Village Restaurant @ Bukit Gasing, PJ (Pork Free)
This has been our favorite go-to Thai restaurant for years. The food served here has been consistently good and so, we’ve got no complains. They do get crowded, full every now and then – especially during dinner but worry not as they occupy a few lots, plenty of space for everyone – with the option of sitting indoor – are conditioned or outdoor. Price wise, the food is affordable, nothing over the top.
** I’ve been told several times that the waiters here are rude. I personally have not experience such a thing but my friends have – just thought of putting it out there, just in case.
My personal favorite dish here is the Thai Baby Crisp Sotong. Crispy, chewy fried baby squids that is coated in thick spicy, sweet sauce …. oooo, heavenly. Yum!
Address: No 6 & 7, Jalan 5/44, Petaling Garden, Off Jalan Gasing, Petaling Jaya
Opening hours: Everyday. 10 am – 12 am
Bangkok House Restaurant @ 3 Two Square, PJ (Halal)
This is where we usually head to if we fancy simple, home cooked Thai food that is conveniently located nearby as well as one that offers a quiet atmosphere. Well, mostly quiet except during the ‘Puasa’ month, when it does have a tendency to get crowded.
What is good here? I cant really say, lol. Over the years, we’ve tried a variety of dishes and we’ve liked all of em’. It depends on what you fancy.
Address: C 13- 01, 3 Two Square, Jalan 19/1, Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya
Opening hours: Everyday. 11.30 am – 10.30 pm
Moobaan Thai @ Taman Desa (Non Halal – serves pork)
This was a new discovery, our first visit here was a lil more than a month ago. Since then though, we have already dropped by several times. I especially love the way this eatery looks , the pastel colors sure does set a calm, cozy mood which is inviting.
I personally like their Thai Green Curry – it is thick and milky, flavorful with a generous serving of chicken. Their fried rice is pretty good too and ooooo, lets not forget their mango sticky rice for dessert.
Address: No. 15, Jalan Bukit Desa 5, Taman Bukit Desa
Opening hours: Everyday. 12 pm – 3 pm, 5.30 pm – 10 pm
Thailicious @ Solaris, Mont Kiara (Non Halal – serves pork)
This is perhaps a ‘hidden’ eatery ?? It is located within the busy Solaris Business Center/Park but on the first floor of one of the blocks. They do not go all out trying to get peoples’ attention of their existence. No. They seem rather content on being a lil under the radar. This may perhaps be due to the fact that they already have a solid clientele?
Anyways, food here was good and affordably priced as well. Compared to the other eateries listed, Thailicious has a relatively smaller Menu, understandably but still plenty to choose from. What is good here? Other than the usual Thai Green Curry, their Boat Noodles selection is good as well.
Address: No 10-1, First Level, Jalan Solaris 3, Kuala Lumpur
Opening hours: Everyday, 12 pm – 5.30 pm.
Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant @ Hulu Langat, Ampang (Pork Free)
This eatery I visit once in a blue moon. Why? because it is not conveniently located, lol except perhaps for the Ampang folks. However, if you are like me and you do not mind taking a 45 minutes drive once in a while, then do consider this eatery because it sure does offer you something different. It is located on the hill, on the way up you’d come across the famously known as Ampang’s Lookout Point where you’d literally get a direct view of the whole of KL within your sight and it is especially beautiful at night. The eatery itself consist of – in simple terms a bunch of huts on stilts, on a mini pond that operates as a fish farm. It was fascination, definitely something different.
Their Butter Prawns and steamed fish is da bomb. We liked it so much that we’ve ordered it repeatedly whenever we paid this restaurant a visit. Their fried rice selection is awesome too.
Address: KM 4, Jalan Ampang, Hulu Langat, Ampang.
Opening hours: Everyday. 11 am to 11 pm
