Specialities include an aromatic house-made pork sausage (RM15) and classic Isan green papaya salad with fish sauce (RM12). If you’re a fan of traditional braised pork leg, this is worthwhile – tender and fatty, with light, pleasing herbal nuances (RM35).

An extensive menu

The menu is extensive, comprising some 80 recipes, from stir-fries like preserved eggs with minced pork and holy basil (RM25; rather on the greasy side) to curries like panang pork (RM25; a bit more fiery than expected – The Krua isn’t scared of spices).

Warm, satisfying desserts include a lovely, creamy-soft pumpkin wedge with a smooth centre of coconut milk and egg custard (RM8) & taro balls with young coconut in coconut cream (RM8). All in all, there’s potential for The Krua to be a destination for fans of fuss-free Thai authenticity.

    Serene Yap this the one you referring to? Sounds pricey for thai food.
