We went here on a Sat night as a group on a recommendation, its now Mon afternoon and im slowly recovering from the Vomiting & Diarrhea I suspect from the Prawns, I normally love my prawns but i could only stomach 3 pieces since they tasted strange. I would congratulate this unhygenic eatery for my 1st bout of food poisoning... More

This restaurant used to be one of the top in KL specialising in Thai food. The reputation is properly justified as locals and tourists visit them in throng during the off-peak hours and rush hours. The premise is simple; people came here for the quality food at affordable price. The environment is loud and service is service was efficient but... More

Yes they have moved to a new location and it has ambience. Staff was friendly. We ordered the Fritters with Kaya, Kam Heong Crab, Chicken Feet, Salted Fish Kai Lan, Pandan Chicken and Talapia Fish in Thai Style and the bill total up to RM162.70. All dishes were in small serving. The rest of the dishes were fine, but the... More

Been back here dozen times and always love the curry crab, BBQ squid, seafood fried rice, sambal Kang Kong, Tom Yum seafood and Butter Prawns. Not forgetting the appetizer kind like little fried dough with pandan kaya dipping. It sound weird for western sweet before the meal but I guess this is what Thai do.

I have been eating at this place for a few times, recently they have moved to another place. I brought my mom there on a Monday afternoon for an early lunch to beat the queue. Pro: Taste, spacious, good ventilation, price Suggestion: Do not go too early as the kitchen doesn't start sharp at 12 noon and the fresh seafood... More

Our family drove all the way to have an, alas, disappointing dinner at this restaurant way in the depth of Ampang. The black pepper crab was covered with szechuan spicy hot and sugary sweet and sticky molasses last week. All I got was a numb tongue! The bbq crab - almost meatless and there wasn't a bit of roe on... More

Most of the seafood (crabs, prawns, cockles ) are barbecued and the chilli sauce dip that goes with it is great . The big turnoff is the lack of service so be sure to place ALL YOUR ORDERS at one go if you get the waiter's attention or go really early like 6pm onwards . The restaurant is actually a... More

The biggest issue we had with this place was the waiting time.Over an hour from ordering to being served. Even then not all the food came at once. Yes they were busy however there were several tables where people had arrived after us and had finished their meal before we had even been served. Despite numerous attempts to find out... More

Laid back place. Nothing fancy. Fresh seafood and very tasty. Service was also very speedy albeit huge crowd. It would be advisable to come early to get a table. Love the mini chakoi with pandan kaya, bbq crab, black paper crab and the butter squid. yummy.
