Samira Thai Cuisine @ Sentul Park


Samira @ Sentul Park is a new kid on the block; taking over Yuritei at the KOI centre near KL Performing Arts Center.  I first read about this beautiful place from Sean‘s blog and was captivated by it’s beautiful surroundings. Last Saturday, I popped by for dinner since it is only 2 minutes drive from my place.


We walked through a stone pathway and was greeted by this beautiful sight. The restaurant offers indoor air-conditioned comfort and al fresco dining.

The wait staff ushered us to another side of the restaurant, by the lake. It was nice to have our dinner here, while enjoying the lush greenery surrounded by breathtaking lake view and landscape.
My Korean friend was really happy taking in the evening sunset with her meal.

Please pardon the low light picture. It was disastrous, I know. I love Miang Kam. In fact, it’s my favorite Thai snack. The sweet-and-sour combination of myriad chopped ingredients and spices always whet my appetite. Samira’s Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab is coated in a chef’s special gravy. It was flavourful but we found the batter to be greasy. The Tom Yam soup was a tad too sweet for my liking; the chef was heavy handed on the fish sauce/sugar perhaps?

We enjoyed the lychee fried rice a lot. It was full of wok hei and the addition of lychee flesh was a refreshing touch. The green curry chicken went well with our sticky rice, but the gravy was a bit watered down.
We had Tub Tim Krob for dessert. This famous Thai dessert made from water chestnuts was cool and refreshing.
The food was decent, but nothing remarkable. However, the pricing was reasonable and we enjoyed the ambiance a lot. It is a great place to come by for a casual dinner/gathering. Just remember not to set your expectations too high :)

    I ve unstd, photoshooting is not permitted due to restriction from the restaurant and the YTl koi center. ..because some use for commercial and for other improper use. There is a notice on their main entrance, as well at the center…I was bit upset at first but after found out that the reasons behind…Well, its true…do not violate the rules there… its a privacy for the guests there to dine without flashlights, according to their staffs.
    Such a beautiful place…should visit it rather thn seeing the photos..but bravo to your great shots! Lucky, you got their permission to get these pics!
