Whatever your Thai craving, we have it! Here is a list of some of our favourite Thai spots to enjoy tomyum, fresh salads, curries and sweet desserts...

Whatever you Thai craving, we got it!

We all have a special Thai restaurant that we love and is a go to place when you want some spicy tomyam or a fiery somtam. For some Thai food is like comfort food, having that hot tom yam on a rainy day is pure bliss. We have five different restaurants that serves very different types of Thai food- all good of course.

D'lala Seafood

D'lala is a popular Thai eatery with roots from Hatnyai. Here the serve a good version of the som tam, which is a green papaya salad. They mix in green papaya, carrots, peanuts and top it with some dried prawns. It is a vey refreshing dish, perfect for those long days at work. Pair it with their "Ikan Goreng Krung Thai" which is a deep fried fish with vegetables and cashew nuts for an excellent meal The fish is deep fried to a crisp served on a bed of deep fried kangkong.

They also serve a trio of great desserts that would surely make your day. They have pulut mangga, red rubies and pulut durian!

Location: 154, Jalan Raja Abdullah, Kampung Baru, 50300 Kuala Lumpur

Ali Tom Yam

Another one of our favourite tom yam spots is Ali Tom Yam. They started the business with only three people based in Chow Kit. Now the business is run by the next generation in a proper shop in Keramat. The food here is also from Hat Yai which is the spicier side of Thailand. They serve a variety of fish dishes but our favourite is "Ikan Kukus Peksak" which is a steamed fish drenched in spicy sour gravy.

For tomyam, their specialty is white tomyam, but don't let the clear nature of the soup fool you. The soup is loaded with seafood and it's hella spicy.

Location: Jalan Keramat, Kampung Datuk Keramat, 54000 Kuala Lumpur


Khuntai started in Penang and now they have 6 branches across Malaysia. Khuntai means Thai people as the owners are originally from Thailand. We love the green curry here, it's rich, spicy and full of meat, eggplants and winter melon.

They also serve a very good version of the "ikan gaeng som" which is a sour spicy version of the fish.

Location: Address: Kawasan Perindustrian Cheras Jaya, Cheras 9 Miles, Selangor

Barakah Tom Yam

Fancy some spicy Patani dishes? Then head over to Barakah Tomyam at Keramat AU. They serve a different version of the "ikan gaeng som" which has a yellow tint and has a lot more gravy. If you don't fancy fish, how bout some "lidah masak merah" instead?

The beef tongue is boiled till tender before it is cook lovingly with the gravy. Yummy!

Location: Jalan AU 2C/1, Kuala Lumpur (beside AEON AU2)

Kompassion II

Kompassion is modern take of Thai fusion cuisine. Their dish is based form northern Thailand from places like Chiang Rai which utilises more fresh herbs in their cooking. They use fresh chillies as opposed to the more southern cuisines that use chilli paste. Each dish here is a fusion of a Thai dish cuisines from countries like Japan, Laos and so on.

Take a gander at this duck curry, which is more that what it seems. The curry is mellow and flavourful from the smoky duck with an interesting sweetness to it. This sweetness comes from lychee which is cooked in the dish.
