Amarin Thai Restaurant Kuala Lumpur Reviews
Good and nice thai restaurant Jun 01, 2011
In honour of me coming to Kuala Lumpur, Karena and I were invited to attend a TB meet-up at the Amarin Thai Restaurant. I had eaten thai food once before, but that was in Adelaide.
The restaurant looks modern with mainly dark colours in the interior. But it was clean and housed many tables and seats. The staff looked professional, but on a few occasions, I got the idea a few had very little experience.
The menu card looked like a big newspaper, called the Amarin Daily - nice touch to present a menu like that. It was also varied and offered plenty of food like soups, fish & meat dishes and salads.
Cairel had ordered a dish for everyone called Mieng Kam. We had to fill a small leave called La Lop and fill it several herbs, spices and other food like roasted peanuts, shallots, ginger and coconut. Really delicious.
Karena and I ordered mixed vegetables and a chicken, which name I forgot. It was very good and the dishes everyone else had, looked good too. I consider the prices for the dishes and drinks average, not really that cheap. But it depends on what you're having to eat.
All in all, it was a good place to have dinner there and I would certainly consider going back there for dinner.

Amarin Thai in KL Jul 31, 2011
Amarin is a Thai restaurant located on the 2nd floor in the North Court of the MidValley Megamall. The mall is just off the Persekutuan and East-West Highways and has a KTM train stop (just one stop away from KL Sentral on the Seremban line). There are also free shuttles from beneath the Bangsar LRT station (which is walking distance to the mall if you are a little crazy and don't mind walking alongside the highway and crossing its onramps).
Inside the restaurant, the ambiance is nice and modern with Thai touches. It has that sort of look...made to look really fancy, but done on the cheap. Still, sitting on the sofas with colorful cushions makes it easy to sink back and get comfy after finishing a meal here.
Service was OK and the staff was friendly. I believe they were mostly Filipino, and not Thai, though! On weekdays it is fairly empty, but it does fill up on weekends.
The food was good overall. It is not the best Thai food in Malaysia, but there was nothing to complain about either. I'd recommend trying the Mieng Kam as an appetizer. It won't fill you up, but it will definitely wake up your the taste buds. As for mains, the usual range of Thai fare is on offer. I had the most common dish--pad thai...yes boring, but it was flavorful.
The cost for the dishes was similar to the other restaurants neighboring it. Prices for mains, however, start at about RM17 and go up so it is not a cheap dining option compared to what you can find elsewhere. Still, if you are in MidValley and have a craving for good Thai food, this is the place to get it.
