Chang Thai, VietThai & Sen Of Thai

Currying favour: If you're craving creamy comfort, Chang Thai promises hearty helpings of yellow curry with prawns, green curry with chicken, massaman curry with beef, panang curry with lamb shank & red curry with roast duck, mostly costing between RM19.90 & RM36.90 per portion. Some of the flavours might benefit from more authentic nuances, while the produce could stand to be fresher, but it's quite encouraging to see this quintessential ensemble of Thai curries served under one roof.

Ground Floor, Valenza Hotel, Batu 3, Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur. Daily, lunch & dinner. Tel: 0379726100

Indochinese inspirations: VietThai specialises in communal-feasting hotpot recipes that hail from regions north of our border - the spicy tamarind seafood proves piquant with grouper fish, clams & squid (RM42), while the oxtail is mainly bony but mostly tender from five hours of braising (RM48). Satisfaction levels may diverge (for some, both recipes might seem one-note & subtlety-free in dynamics & dimensions); they'd likely perform best if steaming-hot succour is needed on a rainy, shivery night.

Mon-Fri, 11am-3pm, 6pm-11pm; Sat-Sun, 11am-11pm. Tel: 03-7733-7718

The Thais have it: Sen Of Thai's competently executed range of dishes honour the Land of Smiles with crowd-pleasing creations like fish cakes tinged with red curry (RM16), a fusion-style pasta with slivers of duck in green curry sauce (RM22), fried rice with chicken wings (RM18) & massaman curry with beef (RM23). Contemporary Thai for a mainstream market.

  3. There's a typo error in your article :) you wrote "ChangThai" instead of VietThai when you were referring to the latter.
    Wow.. So many Thai restaurants to try. Too bad my kids are not fan of Thai food so there's still a list of restaurants for me to go until today

  4. Hot & Sour Pot? I'm wondering if they are referring to Tom Yum or something else like the Sze Chuan's.

    1. Ken: i think it's more of the vietnamese hot pot, but similar enough in some ways to tom yum and szechuan! :)
