It was my second visit to Mai Yai Thai Orchid Restaurant located at one of the most strategic location in K.K. City and non the less, the tourist area!
In fact, K.K. do not have much selection on Thai Restaurant which I come across, there's only at least three from which I have tried and knew. Variety of selections from the menu and I do love Green Curry and one of the best I have tried was during my visit in KL and one from my cousin's restaurant in KK few years ago (no more operating now).
- Our Meal -
There's only three of us, all ladies that night. My manager brought us to dine at the restaurant which we have some discount voucher which I bought months ago. (hehe :P)
That's portion was crazy and other customers just blinked their eye when they saw what we had!
- Pineapple Rice -
One of the recommended dish and it's a must to eat at any Thai Restaurant! Sweet and fragrant smell of the rice just made us eat more!
- Seafood Tom Yum Soup and Mango appetizer -
Mai Yai Thai Orchid Restaurant claimed that they hired authentic Thai chef originally from Thailand, which I can't agree more. It's like there's difference in taste when the original Thais who prepared the meal.
Overall, the environment is good with outdoor seats for guest to enjoy the sea view (especially during lunch and evening for drinks). The food was good, however it depends which we ordered, I won't recommend the grilled crabs by them, it was a bit dried! As for what I recommended, the Green Curry, Tom Yum and others which are not seafood and no fried food please. :)
