Two years…

They were here before, my cousins from Kuching, almost two years ago in July, 2016 but I could not be with them that time around as it was on a Sunday and I had to send my girl to her school in the jungle. Luckily, she is still on her extended mid-year break for the Gawai Festival and Hari Raya Aidilfitri so all of us could drop by the place that day to enjoy a sumptuous lunch of Thai delights together.

We had the phad Thai, large (RM31.90)…

…and the yum woon sen or seafood glass noodles salad (RM26.50)…

They actually had this the previous time but they could not remember much else other than the very nice chicken rice that they had then.

For our vegetable dishes, I ordered our favourite bitter gourd omelette (RM17.50)…

…and their fried cangkok manis with egg (RM15.50)…

…that I thought they did really well the last time I had it here.

That day, I also enjoyed the pla sa moon prai, their deep fried barramundi, filleted (RM78.00)…

…that my good friend, Robert, would always order everytime so I also asked for that for all of us to enjoy and yes, we all loved it, right down to the stuff used in its garnishing and presentation.

They all said they would prefer the seafood tom yum soup, creamy (RM90.00)…

…so that was what we had and they loved it to bits! One of my cousins added the glass noodles from the salad dish to the soup and had them together and she loved it to the max.

My cousins and our mutual friend, also from Kuching, insisted on picking up the tab and the total came up to RM259.40 for the 8 of us altogether. Actually, one of my cousins has two children and their families residing in Australia so I guess a lavish lunch like this one that we had for around AUD85.00, a little more than AUD10.00 per head, would seem mighty reasonable compared to what they can get over there…plus the last time, they were here were two years ago but most importantly, we did enjoy the food a lot and needless to say, the company as well.

FLAVOURS THAI KITCHEN is located on the ground floor of the ORCHID HOTEL, along Brooke Drive at its junction with Jalan Tunku Osman. You can use its main entrance at the back of the hotel building (facing Brooke Drive) or go through the lobby past the reception desk if you are using its hotel entrance.

  1. I think the price is alright since there is a fish dish, seafood dishes and the many other tasty dishes.

    Yes, I do think it was reasonable, can’t expect it to be cheap – places like this.

  2. Though I am not much into Thai food, I still think they look tempting and great. I like two dishes here, Bittergourd omelette and fried cangkuk manis with eggs.

    You need to know what to order, some dishes may not be to our liking, an acquired taste – all the herbs and what not. I love it!
