Sri Ayutthaya in Kuala Lumpur

Bangsar Restaurants & Dining

Sri Ayutthaya

Sri Ayutthaya has earned its status as one of KL’s finer Thai restaurants. It has three branches in KL but its flagship outlet is in Medan Damansara, at the opposite end of the street to Victoria Station. The food is the authentic stuff and not the watered down version you will find at other places.

In 2011, it was listed as one of Malaysian Tatler’s Best Restaurants. Although the menu is filled with dishes peppered with robust and fiery Asian herbs and spices, less adventurous diners can opt for the more mellow versions of these dishes by informing their server of their preference for more subtle or sweet-sour spice levels. Though Sri Ayutthaya has a reputation for being a little pricey, its willingness to cater to all visitors is what makes it a favourite among expats in KL.


Interior Design of Sri Ayutthaya

Opened in 1997, Sri Ayutthaya is managed by the same owners of Victoria Station but the two eateries are worlds apart. The interior of Victoria Station is reminiscent of a London underground station, while Sri Ayutthaya has a palatial Southeast Asian mansion appearance to it.

Artfully decorated with colourful, Asian-influenced paintings, it almost qualifies as a fine-dining establishment but the unpretentious atmosphere makes it so much more relaxed and vastly more appealing. Staff members are dressed in thematic outfits and the décor is simply exquisite with heavy Balinese furniture and silk cushions plus other decorative items on shelves and hanging on the walls.  

 

The Menu

Sri Ayutthaya’s menu includes dishes that you will rarely find outside Thailand. This is Thai food at its most conventional so be prepared for a spicy feast as most of the dishes include chillies as ingredients. Popular with the lunch and dinner crowds are its set meals – they are real value for money; a meal will typically cost about RM50 per person.  

Signature Dishes for Sri Ayutthaya

Sri Ayutthaya does what it does well and it is essential not to miss the Thai staple of mixed seafood tom yam: it is perfect for those who like their soup robust, thick, searing and sweet.

Sri Ayutthaya lists the soft shell crab Pattaya-style, curry prawn with pumpkin and baked scallops Thai-style as its signature dishes but diners will tell you that favourites also include pineapple fried rice, deep-fried calamari, green curry chicken, Assam fish, mango kerrabu and red curry fish.

Dessert & Drinks

There is a server who goes around with a dulang (tray) of cling-wrapped desserts and a visit to Sri Ayutthaya wouldn’t be the same without trying one of these dishes. Coconut-milk-based cendol with chunks of durian is a must-try and so is the red rubies water chestnut dish. Drinks are varied with some pretty inspired selections on the menu – the dragon fruit juice is particularly delicious.

Although there is a bottle of wine placed on each table that complements the outlet’s signature dishes well, this is not a restaurant that boasts a seriously stellar selection of vino.
