Thai food lovers should not be new to the name- Thailander, as the brand has a strong presence in Gurney Plaza food court. The proprietor is also related to the Thai food stall in Lotus E-Gate. With the strong support from the regulars, Thailander has finally opened a proper Thai restaurant in Vantage Desiran Tanjung Penang. The menu is quite limited but more than good enough to satisfy anyone with Thai food cravings. The classics are there- from Maeng Kam, various Thai Salads, Tom Yum to Thai stir-fries or even desserts; Thailander has everything in the menu. Also, food items here are affordably priced so a decent meal here would not cost a bomb.

White Tom Yam Seafood (Rm 20)
Thai Chicken Feet Salad (Rm 16)
Pad Phet Chicken (Rm 18)
Stir Fried Mix Vegetables (Rm 15)
Due to their new opening jitters, some items were not available on our visit (ie: Maeng Kam and desserts). The Thai Chicken Feet Salad was a great start with generous amount of Chicken Feet but the dressing was a little overly acidic to our liking. The chili heat was perfect though. Equally acidic was the White Tom Yam Seafood, probably a little too acidic for us to enjoy the Seafood. The quintessential Tom Yum flavor and seasoning was present though. The Pad Phet Chicken was probably the dish we enjoyed the most- beautiful flavors with rich and creamy sauce, perfectly spooned over rice. Prices are nett here and the dishes are hearty, a neighborhood Thai restaurant that we definitely see ourselves returning.
