The Art Coffee which used to be in Sunway Giza have moved to 
Lot 1.8, First Floor, Nexus Bangsar South, Jalan Kerinchi,
Kuala Lumpur to cater to the coffee lovers.

The Art Coffee Nexus Bangsar South

One of the major revamp is that The Art Coffee at Nexus Bangsar South serves a full dining menu and we have gotten to taste some of this newly crafted dishes by Chef Alex.


We started off our tasting session with an order of Smoked Salmon Salad (RM16.00). This rich multi-coloured salad is a feast for our eyes when it was served to us. In the salad, you get a combination of Lolo Rosso, Lolo Bienda, Smoked Salmon, Purple Cabbage, Capsicum, Tomato Salsa, Walnut, Dried Cherry and tossed with a sesame infused dressing.


We decided to order a sharing starter which is Munchies (RM14.00). This sharing platter consists of Deep Fried Chicken Popcorn which has a nice bite crunch. Also on the platter is the fried nachos which is served with Trio Cheese Sauce and Guacamole Dip.


For our soup, we had the Soup Of the Soul (RM13.00). The soup is a clear based chicken soup while the breast meat is chopped to a nice bite size and cooked with broccoli. This soup is served with toasted baguette.


For fans of pasta, The Art Coffee offers 3 cooking style which is the tomato based, cream based and the Aglio Olio style. Being a fan of seafood; for the tomato-based, we had the Seafood Marinara (RM23.00). The seafood that was used for this pasta is the Prawns, Squid, Green Mussels, Lala and for the vegetables, the chef uses black olives, tomatoes coulis and baby spinach to add some texture and taste to the spaghetti.


For the Cream style; we ordered the Creamy Oriental Popcorn (RM21.00).  The pasta that is used for this dish is the Linguine. For this dish, the Chef has infused an oriental touch to this dish by having the cream cooked with the fragrant curry leaves to give it a dash of spicy flavour. It is then topped with the deep fried popcorn chicken. According to the Chef, these popcorn are not the same as the commercially available but are in-house made by the chef using chicken tenders and are marinated by the Chef recipe.


For the mains; we decided on the Steak Diane (RM38.00). The Beef Fillet is cooked medium-well in classic Diane sauce and is accompanied by the sweet potato chip and sauteed vegetables.


To end our meal, we ordered the Chef's Signature Dessert (RM18.00) which is a fried soft dough and in it is the chilled avocado-lime paste, served with mix berry sauce and topped with cotton candy.



followed by a Strawberry Watermelon Blended fresh juice (RM15.00).

Aman Suria Food | Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant

 Pim's And The Rama Authentic Thai Restaurant

Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant
Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant

Do you want to feel like a royalty, you can get a taste of the authentic Thai Palace cuisine right here at Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant located at 22 & 22A Jalan PJU 1/43, Aman Suria Damansara Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. 

Aman Suria Food Pims And The Rama Thai Restaurant

This is because the dishes served here are curated by an ex-chef from the Thailand Palace in Changmei. It is also the reason the restaurant named as Rama which symbolizes the Thai Royalty. You can see some of the Thai King photos which are decked on the walls of the restaurant too.

Pim's Cocktail Selection
Pim's Cocktail Selection

One of the prime factors for the restaurant is to be able to offer a truly Thai dining experience. Staying true to offer the freshest seafood which is sourced from Pulau Ketam and Klang, it offers diners with a value deal. For more information and promotion, you can check out Pim's And The Rama Facebook Page

 Fried Donut Prawns

Our review Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant started with an order of the Fried Donut Prawns (Tod Man Gong) (RM25.00). Consist of more than 80% prawn paste and 20% fish and deep fried to a crisp; it is a really nice starter to enjoy with a glass of cocktail or cold icy beer. The Chef has also included chop whole prawns to give this doughnut a nice bite texture.

Pim's Pandan Chicken

We ordered another starter which is Pim's Pandan Chicken (RM23.90). At Pim's and Rama; the chef uses the thigh meat which is more succulent. The preparation of this Pandan Chicken differs from others in that, the marinated chicken is steamed first before deep frying. The end result, your chicken meat is tender and juicy while it is crisp on the outside. This is how the authentic Thai does it.
Thai BBQ Grilled Pork Neck

Another appetizer you should try is the Thai BBQ Grilled Pork Neck (RM19.00). There is a high demand for this Pork Neck and it is not easy to get hold of a quality Pork Neck meat with a 70% meat and 30% fat which the Chef wanted. This pork neck is marinated overnight to ensure all the marinade seep deeply into the meat. It is prepared fresh daily and is available in a limited quantity. The secret to the great taste is in the Thai secret sauce that is served with the meat dish.

Thai BBQ Pork Stick Moo Ping

at Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant, there is another not to be missed Thai appetizer which is the Thai BBQ Pork Stick Moo Ping (3 pcs RM12.00). Unlike other restaurants, the Moo Ping here has a firm texture with the right balance of marinade and grill to a nice aromatic char.

Thai Super Seafood Tom Yum Pot

For the mains, we had the Thai Super Seafood Tom Yum Pot; loaded with fresh seafood which includes Crabs, Tiger Prawns, Crayfish, Squids, NZ Mussels, Clams, Scallops, Lala, Onsen Duck Eggs, Abalone Slice and Fried Soft Shell Crabs. 


Bedded with the popular Thai noodles and a strong flavour, enticing taste and aroma of the Tom Yum broth; this dish alone gets our appetite to overdrive.

Fresh Siakap Steamed With Chilli & Lime Soup

Our final dish is the Fresh Siakap Steamed With Chilli & Lime Soup (RM65.00). I really enjoyed this dish as the Siakap was very fresh and coupled with the tangy lime soup and with an induced spiciness from the chillies, it was very appetizing. Best eaten with a bowl of steamed white rice to scoop up all the broth. For an extra kick, you can opt to have a bottle of Chang Beer added to it. This will enhance a sweet flavour into the broth.

Aman Suria Food | Pim's And The Rama Thai Restaurant

For me, I especially enjoyed the starters dish served at Pim's and The Rama which are very original (remind us of the time we were in Bangkok tasting these Thai street delights) and worthy of its taste.

Making use of Asian ingredients and flavours that are enhanced with modern preparation techniques, Champignons at Oasis Square are mindful of being consistent and using the freshest ingredients for their dishes.

Champignons at Oasis Square Ara Damansara

Our review started with Amuse Bouche (Chef Delights) i.e. Croque Monsieur with a dash of truffled infused in the ham with a good combination of the cheese that is sandwiched with a crispy toast.


To start off our dinner, we had the Homemade Smoked Salmon With Citrus Salad. The smoked salmon is cured in-house by the Chef and the cut has a strong firm bite much like the sashimi texture instead of the soft mushy texture. It was a nice presentation of the salad which is bedded with a beetroot sauce and julienne apples with croutons and fried flatbread at the side to complement a multitude of texture to this salad starter.


For the soup, we ordered the Wild Mushroom Soup (RM18.00). The Chef uses 2 type of fresh mushrooms which is the button and oyster mushrooms. Yoghurt is used instead of cream to thicken up the soup texture while a piece of fried tempura oyster mushroom provides an interesting texture to the soup. The soup is served with a serving of bruschetta mushrooms which is topped with parmesan cheese.


Our next order is a sharing platter which is the Grilled US Pork Ribs With Plum Sake Glaze (RM25.00). We asked the Chef why he chooses the US Pork Ribs instead of local or Iberico pork. According to him, the US Pork has a better texture, fewer fats and are better taste compared even to the Iberico. We can feel that the meat texture was good and perfect for grilling. The marinade which has a hint of plum taste with a lemony flavour has us going for a second piece of the tender succulent pork ribs. It is then topped with fried pork rind to add to a crunchy feel to the dish.


For the night we tasted 2 main courses the first of which is the Black Truffle Chicken Breast (RM35.00). The chicken breast is marinated in white truffle oil that has the aroma lingering in our mouth. The use of white truffle oil instead of the conventional black truffle oil is due to the strong flavour of the white truffle oil. We were surprised by the texture of the Chicken Breast as most of the time, chicken breast tends to have a firm texture after cooking especially pan-fried, but here the Chef uses the sous-vide style to maintain a tender juicy texture of the chicken breast. Right before serving; a light pan-fried add to the crispy skin; while maintaining the juicy meat texture on the inside.


Our second main is the Australian Lamb Short Loin With Homemade Lamb Sausages (RM48.00). We particularly like the homemade lamb sausages which have a firm and bouncy texture. Premium meat from Australia; with minimum fats is marinated and used to make these sausages. The dish is served with salted baked onion with a carrot puree.


For desserts, we had the Champignons Chocolate Delights (RM18.00); a highly creative prepared dessert which resembles Mario mushrooms which are wrapped in a white chocolate on the top, the use of sponge cake that looks like moss and raspberries to create a magical adventure with various textures which include sparkly popping candy, raspberries jelly, raspberries sauce and lychee sherbet has us mesmerised.

Champignons at Oasis Square Ara Damansara

So now you know; if you are in for a treat or set to impress your other half, you might want to try out Champignons at the Oasis. The Chef has also crafted out a menu that is paired with fine wines to let you experience the taste and flavours of the dishes.
