The mat salleh suggested that we go to De Chiengmai Thai Seafood restaurant at Sungai Buloh after reading the Malay tomyam place I posted on monsterblog a few weeks ago. Together with Kelvin, we promptly did that the following weekend.

De Chiengmai Thai Seafood Restaurant, Sungai Buloh
very nice ambience

Getting to there is no trivial stuff, the restaurant is located deep in a kampung at Sungai Buloh. However, with the senior’s memory and a little luck, we finally reached there after only one wrong turn. For the readers here, you guys are lucky, there’s now, of course, a map (see below)

The architecture of the restaurant reminded me of cultural centers and museums more than a place to cure hunger. Nicely decorated and quiet, De Chiengmai offers a good ambience for dining. There are also ample parking space.

tomyam, otak-otak, steamed fish, pandan chicken

We ordered 4 dishes for the 3 of us. A must-order steamed siakap fish (bass), seafood tomyam, otak-otak, and pandan chicken. It didn’t take long before the dishes were served, with the more aromatic Thai rice to go with them.

real charcoal, and super fresh vegetable

The steamed fish turned out to be the best dish of the day. With plenty of garlic and ginger, the fish simmers in a sourish and spicey soup base and being kept warm with slow burning charcoal. Don’t miss out on this dish if you go there. The tomyam was pretty good as well, not overly spicy, but with plenty of squid, prawns, and other seafood items.

The otak-otak, well, is not anything we would call otak-otak in a Malaysian sense. This dish is a mixture of seafood in the otak-otak “sauce”. With plenty of fish meat, prawn, and squid. It was very rich and satisfying though. The pandan chicken tasted as how they should be, and provided a good alternative to all the seafood dishes we ordered.

The restaurant definately offers one of the best Thai food anywhere, and with the great atmosphere and reasonable pricing (RM 112.88 for all those). It is really hard to beat. Especially now that you know how to get there, there is no excuse not to give it a try.

Do order some vege dishes too (we probably should have), De Chiengmai grow their own vegetables so that all the vegetables are super fresh and of top quality.

  11. Hey, if you’re still interested in fish, i have a good recommendation for a shark meat dish in Kapar. Thought it’ll be nice for u to try it since u can’t get that dish anywhere else. It’s their speciality. I just had it 3 days ago and it was definitely one nice place to be recommended. Sorry, abit deviated from the thai food topic. I’m a thai food lover too. Good recommendation!

  12. Looks deliciious. Hope the waiters don’t have leprosy. 🙂

  13. james -the leprosy one all open nusery and sell plants, more profitable that way.

    i’m now salivating for food…

    Just to confirm the food status. Is the food HALAL or not. We muslims are very concerned about halal food. tq

    It has been 5 years since I was there though I frequent the old place quite often years ago.
    With many new places in around Subang Jaya, PJ and Damansara, I somehow forgot bout this place.My daughter jolted my memories and will give a review.
