Thai Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur : Golden Triangle Restaurant

Thinking of where to eat in Kuala Lumpur? With nice restaurants all over Kuala Lumpur, you are spoilt for choice. Though sometimes food vary from down right disappointing, mediocre to absolutely fantastic. 

Best Thai Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur - Golden Triangle in Mont Kiara

One of the best fine dining Thai restaurant in Kuala Lumpur in my opinion is Golden Triangle Restaurant in Mont Kiara that serves halal IndoChine cuisine. I am not too sure whether you can consider this as fine dining but the decor of the Thai restaurant is beautiful with grand wooden tables and chairs and decorative sheer curtains in the indoor dining area while the alfresco area is more relaxed. Price is on the high side though the food compensates for it. We like to eat outside since our kids love looking at the elephants that just seem to pop out of the mural and playing hide and seek with the kids behind the potted plants. At least we can enjoy the food in peace while the kids entertain themselves with the elephants. So far, we like the food served at this Thai restaurant better than Tamarind Springs at 1 Taman TAR and Busaba Thai Restaurant at Bangsar. 

Our absolute must have at this restaurant is their Dry Red Curry Fish preferably with Seabass or Grouper  as we find the red lion not as nice as the other two type of fish. Hubby usually dislike eating curry with rice but this dish is an exception. Crispy fried fish topped with creamy thick red curry with just a hint of spiciness. Great when enjoyed while it is still hot. Taste so nice you can even eat it on its own.

The Thai sambal prawn is also recommended. Though the prawns are not really that huge but the sambal  (chilli paste) is sweet, spicy with a touch of tamarind. I am not really a fan of their soft shell crab here as I like Thai Express' soft shell crab better. 

This time around we tried their squid in spicy Thai sauce which was finger lickingly delicious. The sauce was sweet and  not spicy at all in my own opinion. The squids were juicy and not stringy too.

We always ask for clear vegetable tom yum here for the kids to eat and they always accommodate even though the vegetable tom yum is not in the menu. Tom yum is delightfully tangy from the lemongrass and  kaffir lime leaves and juices.

For the drinks, I like their Avocado Smoothie though its ice-blended and it's advisable to let the drink run a bit before attempting to drink it else you will get brain freeze. Hubby tried orange juice the other day but I kind of remember tasting a bit of pineapple juice in it. Nonetheless the orange juice was fine.
