Tamarind Hills, touted as one of the most beautiful restaurants in town, is still looking good after all these years.
Set within a green surrounding, this tranquil sanctuary feels a world away from the city even though it is located right in the city.
If you’re a fan of Thai and Indochinese food and love an atmospheric setting, then your trip to Tamarind Hill would be a romantic affair.
Recently, the restaurant introduced a new lunch menu inspired by the vibrants streets of Thailand famed for. The menu consists of over 30 delectable Thai favourites and was meticulously composed by the Executive Chef Phiyun Thongyun. The dishes are reasonably priced from RM 9 to RM 25.
Taro Spring Roll, Thai Fish Cake, Tiger Prawn Roll, Lemongrass Chicken Fritters (RM 9 to RM 12)
The appetisers were amazing and we especially love the lemongrass chicken fritters and home-made Thai fish cake. They have all the iconic flavours of Thai food: spicy, sour, sweet and salty.
Red Snapper Galangal Soup (RM 17) and Thai Red Chicken Tom Yum (RM 13)
It is almost impossible not to welcome the soothing silkiness of this warm and creamy galangal soup that focuses on the essentials – tastiness. We also love the intense and aromatic flavors and rich and creamy red tom yum broth.
Seafood Pad Thai (RM 25), Chiangmai Beef Curry/Khao Soi (RM 25), Chicken Satay (RM 14)
The pad thai was decent but nothing to shout about. Khao Soi is Northern Thailand’s de facto signature dish, a coconut and curry-flavored noodle soup, and Tamarind Hill’s version was quite good. We also can’t find fault in the juicy and tender chicken satay.
We tried Siamese Green Curry with Beef, Panaeng Curry with Duck and Massaman Curry with Chicken (RM 17 – RM 23) and our favourite was the Massaman Curry. This wonderful rich and tasty curry recipe is infused with all the exotic flavours of Thailand.
For sweet ending, the banana fritters and mango sticky rice were amazing. What a perfect ending to our lovely meal at Tamarind Hills.
