Phai Lin Restaurant @ Bandar Sri Damansara


    Not too long ago, our reader, Jesslyn invited us to dine at Phai Lin restaurant in Sri Damansara Club. Together with other floggers (ThamJiak, Jason, Simon, William), we dropped by for a food tasting session.

    Though located inside Sri Damansara Club, the restaurant is open to the public.  The décor resembles that stereotypical Chinese restaurant you see everywhere because the place was occupied by a Chinese restaurant previously.

    The owner is a Siamese herself, and she is operating another Thai restaurant in Myanmar concurrently. To ensure the authenticity of her food, the waiters, waitresses and the chefs were all brought in from Thailand.

    Spring Rolls with Thai Sauce (RM 13). Though fresh and crispy, the spring rolls were nothing to shout about.

    Deep Fried Garoupa with Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM 35). The sweet and sour sauce goes really well with some Thai fragrant rice. Only gripe I had was that the skin seemed a tad too dry and shriveled.

    Claypot Glass Vermicelli with Prawn (RM 22). A dish that stands out on its own; I especially love the glass vermicelli that has absorbed the essence of the prawns.

    Deep Fried Chicken Wings with Herbs Thai Style (RM 18). Everyone loves the juicy and crunchy chicken wings.  The aromatic combination of sweet basil leaves, chopped lemongrass, garlic and dried chillies has done a lot of wonder in bringing out the flavor.

    Seafood Tom Yam Soup (RM28). Served with a generous amount of seafood, the tom yam soup was quite good but personally I would prefer it with more “kick”.

    Stir-fried Mixed Vegetables  (RM 17)

    Mango Salad (RM15)

    Raw Prawn Salad (RM22) is the highlight of the day. The prawns were really fresh and sweet. Try dipping them into the garlic and grinded mint leaves sauce and you are in heaven!

    Authentic Thai food are hard to come by nowadays. We do hope that the owner, together with her chef will continue to improve in finding the right taste that fits a Malaysian’s “taste bud” while remaining its own authenticity.
