#DealOfTheDay: Chakri Palace

You don’t have to go all the way to Thailand, to get the authentic Thai taste you crave. Just head over to KLCC or Pavilion to enjoy Royal Thai Cuisine of the finest quality from none other than Chakri Palace.

But wait. You may be thinking… I’m no royal! Can I still eat here?

Well, of course you can! OK, quick history lesson from the ENTERTAINER on why it’s called ‘Royal Cuisine’.

It’s because it was prepared in the palaces of the Ayutthaya period of Thailand, meant for the royal family and others residing in the palace. Pleasing to the palate and eye of the beholder, the dishes are thoughtfully prepared following traditional recipes that date back hundreds of years. Today, the cuisine is prepared for any guest (yes, non-royals too) who wants to give their tummies the royalty treatment.

As you enter the restaurant, you’ll be greeted by a wonderful service staff who are passionate about Thai cuisine, surrounded by an exceptional ambiance that’ll take you out of the hustle and bustle of KL for a while. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of some popular faces such as Tun M., and even the Thai Prime Minister.

But it’s really the food that’s got us excited! With award-winning Thai chefs creating signature dishes using high quality herbs and spices, you’ll enjoy a burst of Thai flavours and fragrance. All the food is prepared with low cholesterol oil, without MSG, and still, it tastes A-MAH-ZING. And to the vegetarians, fret not! Chakri Palace even has specially prepared vegetarian dishes just for you.

We recommend starting your meal with the traditional Miang Kham, before moving on to signature dishes inspired by the Thai food expert, Chef McDang, such as the Four Winged Bean Salad with King Prawn, and Deep Fried Seabass with Phad Cha Sauce. Of course, familiar favourites such as Pandan Chicken, Som Tam, and Green Curry aren’t to be missed as well.

So, now you know where to go for ultimate satisfaction whenever the Thai food cravings hit you. Plus, being a royal doesn’t have to be expensive! Have the ENTERTAINER App on standby to say Sawadeekha to 1-for-1 offers on Main Courses at Chakri Palace, and many other outlets that are just waiting to serve you.
