Sawadeekap! As you all know, I am an avid Thai Food lover. Wherever there are good Thai Food, I’ll be there to sample it. Most of the Thai Food restaurants were operated from a shop lots in Malaysia. However there are a franchise owned of a Thai Food which opened in major shopping malls in Klang Valley.
Good Evening Bangkok is one of the Thai Food restaurant which operate in a shopping mall. Reside at the Ground Floor of 1Utama Shopping Centre, they made their debut back in year 2008. The restaurant adopts a simplistic yet urban and chic theme that can be seen throughout the restaurant. A perfect location to savour some truly delectable fare. And that’s not all. Many patrons, convinced that they have stumbled onto the perfect Thai restaurant can be seen coming back each day to sample the different items on the menu.
Located at the new wing of One Utama Shopping Complex, in Bandar Utama, Good Evening Bangkok sets the stage for a distinctive style of food preparation and presentation, while offering a charming atmosphere in which to enjoy its offerings. I am pretty skeptical on what kind of quality the restaurants got to offer in a mall. Most of the time when I go to 1Utama is mainly for fast foods and then proceed for a movie in the cinemas.
But at Good Evening Bangkok, it totally change my view. The food is really authentic till to the extend of their drinks too were truly authentic Thai.
Lime Rose Drink – RM8
Kafir lime mix with rose syrup drink which turn out to be a very refreshing and the sour flavor bring out the appetite in me.
Iced Lemongrass Drink – RM8
Traditional home brewed lemon grass drink
Roselle Flower Drink – Off the menu and available to order
Thai Iced Tea – RM9
House Special Good Evening Bangkok – RM10
A mix of few fruits ice blended
With all the appetite up and everyone settled down, we were served with the appetizer. I would expect them to start it off with the Mieng Kum. But this round they start it off with the house special, Yam Pla Duk Fu (Crispy Catfish and Mango Salad)
Yam Pla Duk Fu / Crispy Catfish and Mango Salad RM17.90
Deboned and deep fried cat fish topped of on the mango salad with Thai salad dressing is just a perfect way to start off the meal. The mango were not overly sour not too spicy with the red chilis.
Tho Man Pla / Thai Fish Cake served with Sweet Chili Sauce RM13.90
Goong Hom Sa Bai / Deep Fried Prawn wrapped in Wanton Skin served with Plum Sauce RM14.90
Tom Yam Poh Teak / Spicy Clear Tom Yam Soup RM12.90
Tom Yam Gai / Spicy Tom Yam Soup with Chicken and Mushroom RM11.90 or Tom Yam Talay / Spicy Tom Yam Soup with Seafood RM12.90
Tom Yam Goong / Spicy Tom Yam Soup with River Prawn RM15.90
There are plenty of roes from the prawn head which goes in to the soup and it certainly enhance the taste of the soup
Gaeng Keaw Wan Gai/Nue / Green Curry Chicken/Beef RM15.90/RM16.90
Nue Sab Phad Kra Prow / Stir Fried Beef with Hot Basil Leaves RM17.90
This plate of stir fried beef with hot basil leaves is my favorite dish to eat with rice. The soya bean paste sauce gives the meat a very tasty flavor which mix well with the basil leaves taste. I can easily clear 2 bowls of rice with this.
Pia Kapong Nueng Manow / Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chilies RM47.90
A must to order dish here where the whole baramundi fish were steamed with lime juice and chilis. Highly addictive and appetizing.
Phak Bung Prik Kapi / Stir Fried Kangkung with Belacan and Garlic RM13.90
The level of spiciness have been toned down to accommodate all level of diners. To me, I would prefer to have it the original way where it is fried with birds eye chili and has more kick in it. You can request the kitchen to give you the spicy version if you have the courage.
Gai Hor Bai Tuey / Pandan Leaves Chicken served with Thai Chili Sauce RM17.90
Pandan chicken may look simple to prepare but it takes a precise amount of seasonings and marination skills to maintain its consistent flavors. Here at GEB, I give them a thumbs up! Full of flavors and juicy!
After clearing the pandan chicken, we decided to go for something special which not many people know about this particular dish.
Ped Ronn / Deep Fried Boneless Duck with Homemade Sauce RM19.90
Not to forget the awesome desserts served at GEB where all were top notch and full with ingredients.
Khao Neow Ma Moung / Mango with Sticky Rice RM12
Tub Thim Krob – Red Ruby Water Chestnut and Jack Fruits on Coconut Milk
Sagoo Plerak Thai Style / Sago Yam with Coconut Milk RM8 RECOMMENDED!
