Kuala Lumpur - Fish Farm Thai Restaurant

Imagine having dinner by the fish pond, surrounded by thick lushes of greenery, with soft live musical performances to accompany your meals. Away from the hustling of city life, you can enjoy your food with Mother Nature as your dining companion. Now, what if I tell you that this restaurant is not too far from the city centre of Kuala Lumpur?

The huge number of cars is always a good sign

Located some 30km away from city centre in Hulu Langat, the Fish Farm Thai Restaurant is a breath of fresh air and it’s not just an expression. Nestled within trees, the temperature was cooling and mist was visible during my first visit last night for dinner. It is like dining in the jungle.

So photographic...

Our entertainer, all by himself, in a secluded hut...

The dining area is divided into two sections, one with open air and another under thatched roofs. We were seated on the open air section close to the fish pond, a great spot for photo taking. Materials used for constructing this restaurant are in sync with nature, with woods and bamboos being the main ingredients.


My friends are endorsing the menu...

The service here is speedy. After giving our orders, I went to explore the around and by the time I came back, 3 of the 5 dishes we ordered already arrived. I was away for less than 10 minutes, 15 minutes top.

Grilled seafood seems to be a hit here...must try it someday...

As for the food, it is simply delicious. Thai foods are supposedly a perfect mix of sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter and what we ate are testament to it. If I had to say something less glowing, it has to be the white tom yam that we had. It is more like a plain soup, missing the fiery taste often associated to the classic tom yam. Maybe we should have order the normal one instead of this white tom yam.

Thai style steamed talapia with lime juice - RM 30.00

Kangkung belacan - RM 8.00

Mango salad - Rm 10.00

Squid fried with garlic - RM 12.00

White tom yam seafood - RM 18.00

I will definitely come back again to try its other dishes, especially the traditional tom yam. Thanks, Stefanie, for the recommendation.
