Imperial Chakri Palace Royal Thai Cuisine in Suria KLCC Kuala Lumpur is one of the pioneer restaurants ventures into this most-tourist-visit shopping mall, serving one of the best Thai food in KL since 1999. Chakri Palace has constantly improves on their food quality and service, while for last year, they decided to take a step forward by bringing a brand new look to Chakri.
After months of renovation, we are glad that Imperial Chakri Palace welcomes diners with a huge different in appearance. The former interior sets on dim, low lighting for more relaxed, romantic dining. Now, the entire restaurant is far more brighter, more inviting with grandeur decorations.
White is the main colour for the newly revamped Imperial Chakri Palace, as diners can trace this colour from wall to cushion chair, table cloth, table tops and plates. It is further laced with golden yellow paint and imported wall papers for mild contrast, establishing royal touch that makes Imperial Chakri Palace lives up to its name.
Needless to say, their Thai food is still as good after reopened. We were just in time to visit Chakri Palace just before Chinese New Year 2015 celebration ended, and managed to try out their CNY Yee Sang and Chinese New Year Set Menu, starting from RM388++ till RM508++ for 4 pax.
Chakri Four Seasons
Begin with Chakri Four Seasons, a platter that combines Chakri’s finest starters – Thai fish cakes, spring rolls, sweet & spicy chicken, crispy prawns and mixed fruits. Sweet & spicy chicken is our top pick, as it laid in lots of textures from cashew nuts, chicken slices and capsicum.
Traditional Thai Mango Salad
Thai Mango Salad, or Yam Ma Moung opens up the appetite with sourness lends from young mango, tanginess from refreshing dressings, piquancy from onions and spicinesss from chilli. It is priced at RM21.90 for ala-carte order, and diners can add on Catfish (Yam Pla Duk Foo) at RM22.90 or Soft Shell Crab (Poo Nim) at RM24.90.
Chakri Tom Yam Seafood
Never leaves a Thai restaurant without savouring their Tom Yum Soup, same goes to a visit in Chakri Palace Fine Thai Cuisine. We prefer the clear version over the red one, as it delivers sharper flavours of sourness and spiciness. Every bowl is brimming with prawns, squid, abalone mushrooms.
Steamed Seabass with Lime & Chilli
One of the most common dishes to order in a Thai restaurants, having lime and chilli sauce dresses over moist, soft steamed fish. Chakri’s ala-carte order offers also Steamed Fish with Ginger & Soy Sauce (RM79.90), Deep Fried Garoupa with Traditional Sweet & Spicy Sauce (RM79.90), Deep Fried Garoupa with Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM79.90), just to name a few.
Traditional Pandan Chicken
Pandan chicken is noteworthy, not the best but still within our TOP 3 list for Best Thai Pandan Chicken we have tried so far.
Crispy Squid with Thai Chilli Sauce
Majority loves deep-fried food, so do us. Chakri Palace presents fresh, chewy squid jacketed with deep-fried to golden brown batter, served with Thai chilli sauce for spicy sweet touch.
Organice Mixed Vegetables
Delicious mixed of asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, baby corn and garlic stir fried together, garnished with crispy chopped garlic.
Tab Tim Krob
End the meal with one of the must-try Thai desserts in Chakri Palace- Tab Tim Krob. Scoop on the chilling, rich coconut milk with all ingredients you can dig from the soup and enjoy a plethora of textures contributed by jackfruit, sago and water chestnut. Lovely.
