Ever since we moved to Shah Alam, Setia City Mall has became our go-to shopping mall for movies and access to certain brands that we like, since it is basically the closest decent shopping center to us.

Now Haze will complain that I am one of the most insufferable person when it comes to choosing for food in malls as I usually prefer old-school eateries, but for this place, we’ve found a perfect venue that satisfy both of us – at Mr. Tuk Tuk

Located at the lower ground level, Mr. Tuk Tuk is a rather small fast serving restaurant that offers Thai food. At first glance, it doesn’t look particularly “authentic” or fancy, just another one of cookie cutter mid price range sort of eatery. But look closer, and you’ll notice that the workers are mostly Thai, and the place is almost always packed.

Most dishes here are catered for individual consumption, with a few “center plate” style suitable for sharing. Most dishes hovers around RM 7.80 to RM 10.80, very reasonable in a shopping mall setting.

For noodle lovers, their pad thai (RM 7.80) is one of the best I’ve tried in Malaysia, packed a punch and beautifully presented too. They also offer glass noodle and “tuk tuk noodle” which is similar to boat noodle (but actually filling) at the same price.

Tomyam fried rice (RM 7.80) and pineapple fried rice (RM 9.80) were very decent choices as well, both tasted strong and properly seasoned. Then there’s other classic Thai single-dishes like basil chicken and basil beef (RM 9.80 each) if you feel like having steamed rice.

We also always order something to share as well. Tomyam and tom kha (chicken RM 7.80 to seafood 10.80) will not disappoint any Thai food lover, but if you want something out of the ordinary, try their beef salad (RM 10.80), slices of very lightly cooked beef marinated in a sort of sourish seasoning that is also littered with plenty of chili padi. It is very strong, spicy, and absolutely delicious.

If you’re at Setia City Mall or anywhere near it, give this place a try. I hope they open up branches at other places as well. Good Thai food is always welcomed in my book!

Discuss : KY eats – Mr. Tuk Tuk, Setia City Mall

  1. i’ve only been to setia city mall once! hmmm, the pad thai looks and sounds very good! i think there’s a mr tuk tuk in publika, so maybe i should check out that branch 😉

  2. KY, tuk tuk like some sort of tail from Thailand. I still got a lot to learn of Thai food only try pad tai and green papaya salad . Took some of friends to a Thai resturant and they could not handle the spice and heat of the dishes but love the taste. I like heat and spice very much.

    • Vickie: Thai food is usually quite spicy but you can ask them to reduce the heat tho.
