Eating Out with Patrick

One More Thai

Samran Thai located at USJ Taipan
Posted on 01.48pm Sep 27, 2003

The attractive facade of Samran at night After the relatively successful Sri Ayuthia, it was a matter of time before another Thai restaurant would make its appearance.

Samran Thai, operated by the same owner as Taj Curry House near SJMC, is located at Taipan along the same row as Victoria Station. The ambience of the outlet is pretty pleasant and the waiters/waitresses are quite attentive except when it gets crowded.

Once seated, you are served prawn crackers as appetisers. But watch it and dont get carried away. Each portion at RM3.50 is not exactly cheap.

The Thai food here is quite appetising but like some folks wrote on the USJ Forum, a tad expensive as the portion is relatively small. Take the fish cake for instance. At RM10 for a small plate, that's not too bad. But the last time we were there, the 5 pieces were pretty small! The fish cakes were quite fresh and 'bouncy' -but not rubbery.

The green curry too was pretty good, but again the portion for RM15...(sigh..!!) mana chukup makan?

At Samran, do try the cute pastry kind of staff for dessert. They make these miniature looking kind of fruits with bean paste stuffing. I think they call it Samran Thai Special or something. Of course, they also have the regular Thai desserts which I am sure you folks must be quite familiar by now.

Do give Samran a try if you havent been there. Then tell us what you think of the place. Ooops! Forgot to ask the proprietress what Samran means. Anyone knows?
