Khrua Thai @ One City USJ Skypark

Only four or five restaurants are open so far at the One City Skypark 10th-floor rooftop, so hungry customers have few options, making Khrua Thai a venue that can get crowded as the evening progresses.

Folks mostly head to this rooftop to take in the view; some stay on to eat, but others might be wary of the higher prices here. 

Steamed mixed seafood in foil (RM28 before taxes). The food's OK, though portions are certainly not generous, so customers might need to either spend at least RM40 per person or risk leaving a bit peckish.

Deep-fried soft-shell crab. RM48 before taxes for three flat ones? Not cool, though to be fair, the illustrated menu did indicate that there would only be three pieces of crab served.

Salted egg yolk squid (RM30). Lots of squid recipes on the menu, from butter-fried to curry to steamed with lemon, tom yam to kam heong. For better or worse, the menu extends beyond being purely Thai.

Stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts (RM20), a dish that leaves no lingering impression here.

Stir-fried paku-pakis with garlic (RM18). Capably prepared is probably the easy description for this.

Note: Patience will be a virtue if the kitchen finds itself swamped. During this restaurant's early weeks, customers sometimes had to wait more than an hour for their food, but the situation has likely improved since then (we hope).
