Amethyst Restaurant @ Publika Mont Kiara

Yet another new restaurant launch which I missed recently due to some unforseen circumstances. Anyway, below would be a short writeup based on the press release provided to me. Amethyst restaurant at Publika Mont Kiara officially opened its doors recently with much love in the air. One of Malaysia’s favourite celebrities, Hani Hatim (a.k.a Hunny Madu), shared this joyous moment with the celebration of marriage between Hani and her husband of over three years, Khairul Azhar Abdul Wahid.

Founder of Amethyst, Arash Farahmandi, had this to say at the launch event, 

We know Malaysia’s favourite pastime is to eat and most would go to the ends of the earth in search of great food. Celebrating our undying love for food, we also wanted to highlight this special moment with a beautiful love story – that is the celebration of commitment between a lovely couple that Malaysians have grown fond of”. 

Their love story was a beautiful setting for the launch event. The couple re-ignited their love for one another with Khairul presenting a beautiful Amethyst ring to his dear wife, Hunny Madu.

Befitting the meaning of the stone, Amethyst is a mid-casual dining restaurant that harmoniously combines a touch of luxury and comfort in its deco of rich purple tones, private corners and warms lights. Its food also boasts generous portions of quality ingredients bursting with unique flavours, passion and love.

Amethsyt Restaurant can comfortably seat 60 people at any one time. Guests can take their pick from dining al-fresco all the way to simply cosying up at the VIP booth area. The open kitchen bar top concept also gives an inviting feel as if allowing us to step into its world as it whips up delectable fares.


Signature Ratatouille Steak

The restaurant serves a mixture of western-Italian food. Amethyst’s signature dishes are rather unique. Such is the ratatouille steak with saffron rice. The well marinated beef is cooked to tender texture and served with saffron rice, home-made chutney, and ratatouille. The flavours are nothing short of a rich combination of sweet, sour and spicy, all in one plate.

Other signature dishes include their Barbequed Chicken Wings, which is marinated in a secret sauce; a variety of vegetarian pastas; special Greece mix fillet sandwich; and more. The familiar dishes are also played up with a dash of home-made sauces and creative cooking methods to bring out unique flavours and textures. 


Lamb Shank

This can be said of their Crispy Skin Salmon, which is pan fried salmon on a bed of spinach with lemon caper sauce – the juicy and tender salmon with the spinach cooked in the special sauce makes for a truly divine combination. Even the Lamb Shank is cooked to tender perfection with a rather unique flavoured sauce. Looking forward to find time to drop by Amethyst Restaurant at Publika and try out the dishes for myself. Until then, do check them out should you be in the vicinity.
