Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Makan Kitchen which start from 3 March – 30 April 2017 Monday till Sunday 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm is priced at RM135 nett per person.


Our tasting started with the 2 appetizer; the first of which is the Som Tam which is a
Thai Papaya Salad with dried shrimps, roasted peanuts & chili mixed with a lime dressing 


while the second one is a rather unique to a Thai dish which is Gung Che Num Pa. Raw prawns are usually associated to Japanese but here the Chef serves this Raw Tiger Prawns with a cold specially crafted Thai dip. Truly an experience to taste it. Went for a second and third helping.


You can't complete a Thai dining experience until you taste the Tom Yam Soup which the Chef has chosen the Fresh water prawn as the base ingredient. The selection of this is superb as the roe in this prawn when mix with the spicy sourish soup was excellent although it was a tad on the salty side for me.


For the night, we were served 3 specialty mains dishes; the first is the Pla Neung Manao which essentially a Steamed Seabass with fragrant lime broth served with Khao Suay Steamed Thai white rice. We like the balance taste slight of spicy and sourish taste of this dish. 


This is then followed by the Nam Tok which is Grilled Angus Beef with Thai salad.


Our last main to taste was the Gang Kiew Wan Gai which is Thai green curry chicken. There were this pebbles like ingredient which we thought was the green peas but it was a mini brinjal which has a slight bitter taste to it.  


For the vegetables, the chef has cooked up the Rau Muong Xao Mam Tom which is also a Malaysian popular dish; Kang Kong with chilli & shrimp paste. I particular like this dish as the shrimp paste was not salty and has a distinct flavour in it.


For dessert, you can't missed out on the Khao Nieaw Mamuang which essentially is the Mango sticky rice.

and the Sangkaya Fukthong - Pumpkin custard


and finally the Tub Tim Krob i.e. Red Ruby & Jack fruit in coconut milk


The above is the special dishes that was cooked up for us to taste but there are many other Thai and local dishes (more than 80 dishes) for you to taste out for this buffet dinner spread.
