Since we were looking for somewhere new to have our lunch, we went to the lower ground floor of The Gardens to look for new restaurants.
We decided to head for Thai food since spicy food is always good food to us. The design in this floor was quite special, with bamboo structures on the ceiling and the restaurant looking traditional but stylish in their own way.
Anyway, we ordered a set meal which includes an iced pandan lemongrass tea, a Vietnamese spring roll and a Thai seafood pineapple fried rice for RM15.90. Our drink on the right is the iced pandan lemongrass tea which was included in the set meal and the one on the right is the mango smoothie that we ordered separately for RM5.90. The iced pandan lemongrass tea tasted rather unusual to us, maybe we are not used to its taste. The mango smoothie let us down as it was bland and has no mango taste at all.
Our Vietnamese spring roll arrived shortly we placed our order. This is an absolute vegetarian spring roll. It was quite good, the skin was thin and the vegetables were fresh and crunchy. It is very healthy but we were not sure if most people would enjoy Chinese parsley.
The pineapple fried rice is a very popular order among the customers. However, the presentation of the pineapple fried rice was a little messy and the fried rice tasted rather average, nothing much that appeals to us.
Next up is something that we couldn’t miss in a Thai restaurant. This will be none other than a bowl tom yam chicken meehoon soup. Priced at RM8.90, this tom yam soup looks like clear soup but tasted fiery to us. It tasted quite good and we like the fragrance of the lemongrass, the soup was spicy and aromatic at the same time.
Finally, we had a dessert which is one of their recommended desserts. Priced at RM4.90, this tub tim krob which consists of water chestnut, jackfruit, red ruby and fresh coconut milk tasted quite good. For those who love desserts with a sense of strong coconut milk, this would be the right thing for you. The red ruby was the ingredient that we enjoyed the most, it was soft on the outside but crunchy on the inside.
It was a pleasant meal that we had. The good thing about this restaurant is that their price is quite reasonable compared to other restaurants in The Gardens and their service was quite good. Still worth checking it out if you’re a Thai food lover!
