Soi Thai Restaurant Waterfront Desa Parkcity

There I was again at Desa Parkcity Waterfront, this time to try out Soi Thai Restaurant, which I've heard some rather good things about before the review. The last time I was at Desa Parkcity was for a blogger's outing (Desa Parkcity Bloggers Fun Photo Outing) so I had some good memories of the place.

My apologies again, as I did not manage to note down the prices again, hence this review would be one without the detailed prices of the dishes. Rest assure however, the prices were not exhorbitant nor over-priced.

The atmosphere of Soi Thai Restaurant was one of homeliness, a simple decor without much fanfare, except for maybe a couple of elephant deco. Do check out some of the dishes we had that evening.

Thai Style Otak-Otak
#1 Thai Style Otak-Otak

We kicked off the thai feast with Soi Thai's special Otak-Otak. It came in a plate of threes, steamed to perfection just the way I like it. It was soft and mushy, which I prefer actually compared to the slightly burnt and harder version of Otak-Otak. 

Soi Thai Combo
#2 Soi Thai Combo

Another one of the appetizers at Soi Thai Restaurant, the Soi Thai Combo came in a set of four different dishes. We had their pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter all on one plate. Personally I liked the pandan chicken so much that I actually ordered a separate individual set as below. 

Pandan Chicken
#3 Pandan Chicken

One of the staples for any Thai Restaurant, would be their pandan chicken. The ones we had over at Soi Thai were nicely done, without being overcooked, nor undercooked with a very nice spices aroma. I was satisfied with this dish. 

Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam
#4 Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam

Another Thai staple would be the seafood tom yam, and Soi Thai did not disappoint here, with a rather huge "fire pot" housing the soup with prawns, fish, cuttle fish, and mushrooms with lots of taste. It was spicy, but not overly spicy, and had just the right amount of sourness to the soup. A must try at Soi Thai Restaurant if you ask me. 

Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck

Thai Green Curry Chicken
#6 Thai Green Curry Chicken

More curry dishes ensued, namely the Thai Roasted Duck Red Curry and the Thai Green Curry Chicken. Both were equally good, but I do prefer the red curry over the green one as it was more flavourful complete with the santan taste and all. The duck itself was not too tough, which was easy on the jaws. 

 Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish
#7 Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish

One of the main dishes that were served that evening, were the fish dishes. The Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish had a rather unique recipe to it, as it was doused in curry fried to a crisp outside while maintaining its soft flesh inside. I was told this was one of Soi Thai's signature dishes as well. 

Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chilli Sauce
#8 Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chilli Sauce

If fried fish is not your cup of tea, then do go for Soi Thai's Steamed Siakap Fish with Lime and Chilli Sauce. Served in a tray with the sauce still boiling due to the fire underneath, the dish had a really spicy taste to it. The fish meat was really soft though, and went really well with the sourish tangy soup.

Pineapple Fried Rice
#9 Pineapple Fried Rice

Stir fried rice in kunyit with loads of pineapple and spices, served in one big pineapple with the flesh dug out, Soi Thai's pineapple fried rice had to be another one of my recommended dish for this restaurant. Served hot, with added prawns and meat, the taste was savoury enough to want to have even more. 

Thai Styled Kicap Prawns
#10 Thai Styled Kicap Prawns

For someone who doesn't really fancy seafood, but with all the recent seafood I've been having, I've started to pick up a taste for fresh prawns. The Thai Styled Kicap Prawns were prepared in a sweet and salty soy sauce paste, deep fried to a crisp. Nice dish to have with the accompanying rice.

#12 Black Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk

It was desserts galore after our rather heavy thai meal. Of course, we always have this special space in our stomach reserved for good nice sweet desserts after every meal. The first two desserts dished out that evening were the ever popular mango sticky rice and the special black sticky rice, both doused in coconut milk for the added taste. Subsequently, we had a further large myriad of desserts. Check them all out below. 

Coconut and Lemongrass Jelly with Passion Fruit

#16 Steamed sweet Banana with Vanilla Ice Cream

Out of all the desserts, a few noted ones which were also my favourite would be the water chestnuts and jackfruits in coconut milk dessert. Some other restaurants call it the Red Ruby dessert, which I've always liked due to its sweet nature. In fact all the desserts we had, namely the sweet tapioca, the steamed sweet banana as well as the coconut jelly were all sweet.

It was a celebration of sorts too that night, as an early birthday wish for Ken , we brought out this cute birthday cake to be taken together with all the desserts. Anyway, do check out Soi Thai Restaurant should you be in the vicinity of Kepong, or Desa Parkcity for that matter.
