A ‘’Sawadee’’ bliss!

If you want my quick attention, or the shortcut to my heart, do invite me to a Thai feast. I have always been a big fan of food from the Land of the Smiles. There’s just something about their food that leaves a forever mark inside your heart—the flavours, the spice, the herbs, the quality, you name it. Of course, finding Thai dishes in Malaysia is so easy. The popular ones are of course red TomYum soup and their spicy ginger fish. But as for the true Thai food lovers like me, you will be needing more than just a regular food menu. You need an authentic straight out of the Thai’s-secret-recipe itself. 

That is when we discovered StrEAT Thai Restaurant—which they exclusively bring the Thai culture, street foods and recipes for you to indulge in the goodness of each taste. From Chiang Mai to Bangkok, StrEAT Thai is armed with experienced cooks who are experienced in authentic food making. Be it the hot boiling TomYum or warm spicy pad krapow. Ugh, surely got us drooling. Instead of flying over to Thailand, they bring Thailand to you. 

Here’s Glitz honest (salivating) food review.

StrEAT Thai Food Reviews

A StrEAT Thai, it’s all about good food, good ambience and good company. So whether you chose to dine in alone, with a couple of friends or hosting a family reunion. So once you step inside the restaurant, you will be greeted with auspicious and delicious smells, and laid back surroundings that’ll make you feel like you’re in the middle of Thailand city! Like any other five star restaurant, you can simply opt for an ala-carte menu or family pack menu. 

Below are some of our recommendations if you’re new to this restaurant. 

1. The Family Set 

For the family set, they offer two (2) different dishes options. Each set can take up about four or five people. And again, we must warn you that the quota is huge so for a small diner, you can go up to six people. The set comes in with Tom Yam soup, mixed vegetables, seafoods along with choices of chicken and beef. You will also get fruits for a dessert compliment.

4. Thai Salad 

For veggie lovers or vegan, rejoice, as StrEAT Thai even offers a plenty (or handful) of salad options—but with a twist of Thai. We recommend you go for their papaya salad as they balance out the taste of spicy, sweet and sour. Surely will leave you wanting for more. If you prefer a bit traditional, you can try the papaya salad with the mix of ikan bilis. Or maybe even the Som Tam cucumber salad? Told you, they’re very authentic here…

5. Seafood 

For their seafood pillars, they cover up to twenty (20) yes 20 different dishes. Surely we can’t list down each one here cause we’d go crazily cravings. But what we can tell you is that they are packed with special herbs, ingredients and spicy taste that will make you sweat! Fish, squid and lala are the main three in the seafood options. But as for the flavours? The choices are yours. From the Stir Fried Squid with Chili Paste to Steam Lime & Garlic Sauce… I mean.. A total bliss.

6. Chicken, Beef & Lamb

Our Asian traditional dishes won’t be complete until we have a full pack of protein by the side. At StrEAT Thai restaurant, chicken, beef and lamb are served with their own unique flavour. The famous one is of course the pandan wrap chicken. We love it to bits. 

Check out their menu here.

7. Soups & Curries

What’s good of a Thai meal without a good hot flavoury Tom Yam soup by its side? Here, you can find up to five (5) different soups and curries to damp up your meals. Or just order them in cold rainy weather? The taste of spicy and sour-ish Tom Yam from StrEAT Thai will make you go addicted. Seriously, it’s an authentic recipe! It’s like you slurp the soup straight from Thai itself.
