Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine
Sequestered in its very own nook in Kuala Lumpur, Rama V comfortably detaches its ambience from the surrounding bustle of the city, inhabiting a cozy bungalow located right within the more tranquil spreads of green turf abound within the Royal Selangor golf Club and just within reach from the fresh atmosphere of the local KL City Park. Its immediate facade portrays an ambit of solitude, further saved from the metropolitan clutter with a little garden oasis of its own, brocading the restaurant’s perimeters with lotus blooms emanating from cubic green ponds, while statuesque idols hover above the placid waters longingly gazing into the amply lit dining space. Keeping true to the eatery’s moNiker, Rama V offers up heady mixes of Thai cuisine, both authentic and dabbled in modernity and fusion, dishing out selections such as the trifecta of triple-taste chilli sauce coating choices of garoupa or red snapper, or more mellow melanges of soy and delicate steam-cooking bestowed on succulent white pomfret. Essential to any Thai repertoire is the famed broth of tom yam, of which abounds within Rama V’s assortment of food, differing in kinds from the familiar red hued soup, to tom kha brews mixed with coconut milk, or even poe tak - deceptively clear yet generous in its feeding of spice and heat. Dedicated in immersing diners into a wholesome vibe of comfort, the staff come ever-ready in assisting fickle appetites while designated dining chalets come prepared for guests looking to enjoy more intimate, private arrangements.
Rama V does not serve pork but offers alcohol on its menu.

Rama V’s signature Steamed White Snapper Fish in Lime Juice & Chili Sauce had to be the best dish we ordered that night. With such a fresh fish, the only way to do justice to it is to steam it and keep the seasoning as minimal as possible to fully appreciate the fish’s delicate flavor. It was absolutely appetizing and goes great with white rice. – 2013
Hurray to have Chicken Roulade on a Thai restaurant’s table. Creamy, mushy spinach rolled within chicken, roasted to golden brown and served with spicy sweet sauce. A brand new level of try, getting away from common brown sauce, mushroom sauce or black pepper sauce. – Jan 2, 2015
For appetizers, we had the Rattanakosin Platter to share. This dish has a combination of the most delicious fried dishes comprising of spring rolls, fried Thai fish cake, fried squid, minced prawn in golden crispy batter and soft shell crab. The sweet and sour sauces were a perfect garnish to this dish. FYI, Rama V offers many different platters, which are all named after places in Thailand. “Rattanakosin” for instance, is a historic place in Bangkok where the Grand Palace and Wat Pho is. – Mar 31, 2013
