Sri Chiangmai @ Kota Bharu

Believe it or not, it took us almost an hour to hunt for the right place for dinner on our second day. Our KB friends who're not in KB at the moment recommended us the Restoren Syam. But searching for this place alone had already taken us more then 30 minutes. Loorrrr.... tutup pulak bila dah dapat cari restoran tu.... geram betuiii.. They close on Friday (it's weekend for Kelantan).

We called our friends again. One suggested Selera Cik Siti. Took us another 15 minutes to locate the place....and...and..... TUTUP JUGAK! Dua kali geram.

Finally, another friend recommended Sri Chiangmai Seafood Restaurant, or Payang Serai Restaurant. Both are halal Chinese restaurant. I opted for Sri Chiangmai.

Sekali pandang kedai tu macam mahal je. Fully air-cond, with well attired waiters and waitress. Kita hantar dua pengintip gi intip harga. We rushed into the restaurant after getting the ok sign from the pengintip.

These were what we had (in sequence): Mixed tomyam, chicken stir fried with dried chillies, bitter gourd stir fried with eggs, hot and sour steamed siakap, and also hot plate sizzling beancurds.





The dinner set includes 5 dishes, white rice, chinese tea, and complimentary fruits. Since some of us do not like chinese tea, we ordered a pitcher of syrup (RM3 per pitcher). The dinner for 6 person only costed us approximately 75. Super Duper Cheapy!

The restaurant was clean, comfortable and well organised. With the kind of service, environment and food we got, it's certainly value for money. In average, I rate this restaurant 8/10. The tomyam was superb. The fish was tender and mouth watering. The beancurd was appertizing.

Josh said...

[syukur] memang murah. But sayangnyer takde masa untuk cuba laksam. lain kali. Erm.. kat Shah Alam pun ada laksam yang sedap. Near my work place.

[Arel] Helloo abe Arel. Kalo Josh cuba budu, sure sangkut kat tekak.
I'll go there again if i got chance.

[Inah] Spy tu secret agent Josh. hehehe.... Josh suka nasi air, but team member x minat. Takpe, Inah kan boleh masakkan. Banyak yg Inah hutang tau: nasi kerabu, nasi dagang, nasi air, laksam.... banyak lagi. :-P

[danial] Aiya, itu navigator a, bini mau pakai maaa... so I didn't bring along the navigator lorr..
Not stingy, but just to be careful. What if the price is RM100 per person?? how? Unless u want to belanja lorr... can ah?

[Fiebie] I can't believe it too, RM75 for 6 is definately cheap!
Erk, nak pindah ke kelantan ke? i think u should, lot's of nice people there too. Join ler UMK.

[beruang madu] Memang sedap dan murah bang. Mungkin kalah kot Riview Restaurant kat Kuala Selangor tu kot.. hehehe...

Josh said...

[kingkong] Ipoh mali punya mau pigi kelantan kah? Ipoh kan murah gak. Kalo ikut Fiebie dan BM, comfirm RM75 cukup 2 orang je, sebab diaorang kuat makan! (jgn marah ye Fiebie & BM)

Sri Chiangmai memang best sangat, makanan banyak, sedap & murah.

Lagi satu tempat yang best utk lepak2 sambil makan2 dengan kawan2 kat Chim Chum Food Village Pengkalan Chepa, memang berbeza sangat
