A well-kept secret for now, this Thai restaurant with a verdant lake view has the potential to become a hot spot for everything from a romantic rendezvous to birthday bashes.

Enchanting Setting

Samira takes over from Yuritei, the Japanese tea house near the KL Performing Arts Center. The venue has been entirely refurbished, resulting in an enchanting setting.

Seeking a salad before catching a ballet performance at KLPAC? This mix of banana blossoms, shrimp & squid (RM22+) makes for a flowering of sweetly delicate flavours.

Dry Tom Yum Chicken

Dry tom yum chicken (RM22+). The meat without the soup, but with the sour spiciness intact.

Omelet Rolls

Omelet rolls with mixed veggies & seafood (RM16+). Note that though Samira’s prices seem low, the portions are constructed for only two or three people.

Fern Leaves

Who knew that veggies could steal the show here? These are the perfect “paku pakis” _ the freshest of fern leaves (RM16+), simultaneously crunchy but soft, stir-fried with shrimp paste.

Remember how we said recently that we only resort to Thai food once every three months? If more places like Samira pop up, then maybe once a month might be a better estimate.
