MyThai @ Starhill


One of Starhill's mainstays, offering both traditional & innovative Thai recipes.


Yam Som O (pomelo salad with prawns, shallots, fried garlic, roasted coconut & peanuts in a sweet & sour chilli dressing). Can't go wrong with this.


Pu Ja (minced crab & chicken topped with salted duck egg yolk, deep-fried in crab shell). Would be better if the yolk had been creamier and more plentiful.


Gaang Panaeng Neur (creamy curry with lychee, crushed peanuts, coconut cream & beef tenderloin). Not too spicy, just the way we like it!


Tom Yam Omelette. An intriguing twist to the ordinary omelette; could have been softer and fluffier, but still tasty, with a subtle infusion of tom yam flavour.


Cocktails with Thai names (forgot what they were, though they contained words like "Phuket") but tasted typically Western.

  8. babe_kl: i like most fruit-based salads! pomelos seem to go really well with thai flavours, rite...
    joe: it's actually been around at starhill all these years, but it gets overshadowed by the other restaurants there. heheh, this is thai food for tourists, i think :D

  9. You did Thai? I thought it was a complete no-no! This is useful for me though.. I've been spending way too much time in the Star Hill vicinity for a client, and I need all the help I can get to keep things interesting!
