Imperial Chakri Palace, KLCC, Sept 2011

Dear Diary,

It has been ages since I last set foot in KLCC. I couldn’t even recall the last time I went there. Since it has been so long, Hubby suggested for us to have an outing in KLCC on Malaysia Day last year. It was really something because we spent half of the night there.

As soon as arriving, the first thing that we did was searching for an eatery to have dinner. After searching high and low (because we didn’t really know what to have), we finally settled for Imperial Chakri Palace. The place looks promising enough. We were looking forward to enjoying dinner but it was a disappointing experience.

First, let’s take a look at what we ordered:

Khow Phad Gai (Fried Rice with Sliced Chicken)

Phad Thai Gung Sod (Fried Thai Noodle with Prawns, Crushed Peanuts & Chili Powder)

Crispy Soft Shell Crab with Sweet Spicy Sauce, Thai Mango Salad, Crackers & Fresh Salad served with Steamed Fragrant Rice

Khow Ob Sapparod (Pineapple Fried Rice with Shrimps)

Kuey Teow Ma Moung (Fresh Mango with Coconut Pudding Noodle)

Fresh Coconut, Watermelon Juice, Strawberry Juice & Pineapple Juice

I’m not saying that all foods that we ordered were not delicious but some of them were not as we’d hoped they would be. At an establishment like this with price tags leaning a bit upwards, for sure our expectations are also higher.

It was truly a case of indah khabar dari rupa. We could have dined tastier Thai cuisines at other Thai restaurants at same or much lower rates. Some benefit of the doubt, maybe its chef was having an “off” day.

Ps: When it comes to food, my principle is I don’t mind paying extra if the food is scrumptious.

Maya - Memang frust betul hari tu. Of coz la lain tempat lain caranya tp this one rasa dia lari jauh sangat. Tak rasa macam Thai cooking pun. Food yg lain tak tahulah tp some yg kami order tu tak sedap sangat la kat tekak kami ni hihihi.
