Belacan Fried Rice
+ At first glance this dish seems disappointing cause it's a bit damped, where a normal fried rice never meant to be. But after tasting it, I can feel the rice in grain
+ The nice mild belacan aroma as the taste
+ Fried with fresh prawns and sotong
+ Taste great. Crispy and not oily
+ Fried at the right timing and with the right temperature, hence it is not 'rubbery'
+ The freshness is there
+ Best eaten with the Thai sauce which came along with this dish
- Looks normal like the cuttlefish at any mamak stall or lok lok stall
+ Crispy all the way down unlike those in Sushi King or Sakae Sushi
- Still looks normal where you can get it in any Japanese restaurant, not Thai style
- Taste is bland, therefore we have to use the left over sauce in the previous dish
Thai Curry Powdered Prawn
+ Not spicy though looks spicy, but I can’t blame the chef since it states “Not Spicy” in the menu
+ HUGE and fresh prawns, just take a look at the photo!
+ It taste good and it is recommended to use the gravy as a sauce for the rice
+ Fresh sotong as usual
- Not within the expected spiciness, maybe it is customized for Malaysian standard
+ The presentation is somewhat unexpected, unlike conventional otak-otak wrapped in banana leaf. They are not using a recycle coconut shell as you can still scrap up the coconut flesh
+ The ingredients are fresh
+ The santan milk and seafood combination make this dish perfect
+ Sour and Spicy – the way I love. The spiciness starts from the tongue at first sip till back to the throat! Beware! I was forced to order another glass of water because of this
+ The prawns and sotongs are fresh. Again....
Thap Thim Krop
+ Sweet and refreshing especially with the santan milk aroma
+ Those with sweet tooth must try this.
To me it is not spicy enough especially the Sotong in Spicy Thai Sauce.
Quantity: 5 Stars
The portion is HUGE like the photos shown in their website, unlike KFC and McD where they state “for illustration purpose only". They serve in portion of minimum of 2 pax for each type of dish.
Freshness: 5 Stars
This is definitely there. I had written it in all the food I had tasted there.
Value for Money: 4 ½ Stars
Yeah, the food is great and the portion is big. Simply amazing!
Customer Service: 4 ½ Stars
Some of their staff could not speak or understand English since they are foreigners, from Thailand or Vietnam. This could be one of the reasons that makes this restaurant special,though. Anyhow their service is fast and accurate.
Summary: 4 ½ Stars
I hate to say this but my brother and I got defeated in this “buffet raid” in The Golden Triangle as we thought that we would be sitting there for a minimum of 3 hours and taste everything in the buffet menu. In actual fact we were there for 2 hours only. An advise, do go in large group of people to try out more.
