Baan 26 Thai Seafood Restaurant & Bar at Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur is one of the earliest restaurants settles down in this bustling street. They have began churning out authentic, delicious Thai delicacies before the street turns busy, filled with restaurants & bars that liven up Changkat’s night life.
The kitchen is armed with experienced Thai chefs, and the team constantly polishing the quality of food to ensure best of Thai authenticity for every guest. Certain ingrdients like sauces, herbs & spices are sourced from Thailand to maintain the local Thai flavours as much as possible.
Tuk Tuk Kitchen & Bar at Melaka and Lobby Restaurant & Lounge at Jalan Nagasari (near to Feeka Coffee and Table 23 Restaurant) are the brainchild of the same management too, hence there should be no doubts on the quality of all these three restaurants.
Thai Fish Cake RM24.00
Our meal started with Thai Fish Cake, a ubiquitous appetizer packed with chewiness at the interior, slightly crispy at the outside after deep fried to golden brown, hot from the wok. Ideal with a pint of beer or cocktail from the bar.
Spicy Tom Yam Seafood Soup RM32.00
Always the favourite in a Thai restaurant. Baan 26 prepares their tom yam soup with lots of herbs and spices, generously laid with seafood like fish, squid, prawns and mushrooms. Full with punch of flavours, a balance of spiciness and sourness yet not to the tongue-numbing stage.
Pandan Leaf Chicken Wrap RM23.00
Pandan Leaf Chicken Wrap is the must-have in Baan 26. We could easily distinguish the difference between this with those we have in many other Thai Restaurants. Unlike some pandan leaf chicken which score mainly for their tenderness, Baan 26’s version is pleasantly infused with aroma from pandan leaves, amplifying the overall flavours to make every bite of these tender chunks of chicken more noteworthy.
Stir Fried Prawn with Glassnoodle in Claypot RM39.00
One of the highlights in Baan 26 if you like noodle dish, featuring glassnoodle cooked together with huge prawns, rendering brinny sweetness of prawns into the noodles. Make sure to stir evenly and eat while it is hot as glassnoodles tend to soak up the moisture, turning the whole pot of springy goodness a tad too dry.
Thai Style Papaya Salad RM18.00
We have Thai Style Papaya Salad in between our meals to tone down the heaviness, thanks to the refreshing concoction of shredded papaya and lime juice that opens up the appetite. Other option such as Thai Mango Sald with Crispy Cat Fish(RM22.00), Thai Mango Salad with Dried Shrimp(RM18.00), Beef Salad with Ground Rice (RM38.00) seems worth trying out too.
Lime & Chillies Steamed Seabass RM49.00
Baan 26 highly recommends all customers to try their Lime & Chillies Steamed Fish, a signature dish that the restaurant prides of. Fish is fresh, meaty soft, sits in a bed of spicy, tangy gravy which goes well with Thai fragrant rice.
Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Shrimp RM22.00
For individual ala-carte meal, check out Thai Pineapple Fried Rice with Shrimp. We like how Baan 26 flash-fried their prawns instead of merely stir-frying with the fluffy fried rice, as it leaves more plump, bouncy texture in whole.
Pad Thai with Shrimp RM22.00
Another classic Thai dish, which many claims as the sweet version of our local char koay teow, minus the wok hei. Comes with chilli flakes, bean sprouts, crushed peanuts to go with. Summergirl’s all time favourite.
Mango Sticky Rice
End the meal with Thai traditional dessert- Mango Sticky Rice. Sticky, chewy glutinous rice with a touch of saltiness from coconut sauce, balanced up by scrumptious sweetness of sliced mango.
