This place has always intrigued me. Even though I frequent Makati a lot even during weekends, I still haven’t dined at this restaurant. And I don’t know why. Hahaha. But since it was a family celebration then (and yes, we do love Thai food), it was timely that we dine and enter this palace.
Serving up Modern Thai Cuisine, it matches the clean, sleek and minimalist interiors of the resto. It gives off this modern vibe that’s still elegant. It does make one focus on their dishes rather than their decor.
And this was really filled with prawns! Normally, other restos wouldn’t really fill their rolls with pure prawns. But this did not kid with the stuffing. Perfect as an appetizer here!
We were surprised this came with rice (because we ordered a rice dish here). So yeah, it was a “riceful” evening that day. Haha. To be honest, this dish was simple or may have been outshined by the other dishes we had. I felt that I needed the paired hot chili sauce on this dish to give it some flavor.
And we have more rice! Such a necessary staple here. On its own, you could have it and do away with other dishes. It is that flavorful and packed with seafood and pineapple. There are some veggies there too that makes this dish oh-so-tasty.
Just look at the amount of crushed peanuts they had here. Just lovely and really tasty! For me, ordering Phad Thai is a must when in a Thai restaurant. It just sets that bar whether the place serves authentic Thai cuisine. I liked the overall flavor of their Phad Thai. It wasn’t cloying that you get overwhelmed with all the combination of flavors. A must order when dining here 🙂
This dish makes me regret having that seafood rice because it tasted so good with the plain one. I liked how creamy this curry was, and how the lamb was cooked just right. It is one of pricey dishes we had but definitely worth every bite. It had the right kick that would make you want for more. 😀
If you still have room for dessert, have this. My worry was that the mango wouldn’t be sweet (blame it on the season) but this time, it was on the sweet side. I liked how you could taste the natural sweetness of the coconut cream here. And yes, the rice was sticky and GOOD. I’m such a sucker for sweets. Hahaha.
Surprised I got tea instead of coffee? Haha. Normally, I would go for coffee but I wanted something light and cleansing. I felt that this was the perfect choice for me. My worry here was the ginger might be too overpowering. But it wasn’t and the combination was really smooth. I could adjust the flavor by adding in some honey. The addition of a cookie was pretty nice too.
So glad to have finally entered and dined at this palace. It might have taken years but it was well worth it. We dined here on a Saturday night, and the place was quite busy. Service was still pretty good though. Not sure how the flow is during weekday but I do recommend to make a reservation beforehand. I did just that and even got a reminder message a day before our schedule. In terms of price range, yes, it is on the expensive BUT you do pay for great tasting and carefully prepared for dishes. Plus, they pride in not using MSG so you know that you’ll get really good dishes here. So do come enter this palace and dine to your heart’s content. 🙂
