We were staying at Lexis Suites Penang, and so my wife and I decided that we should go have our dinner at Khun Thai. We ordered the kangkung tempura, claypot glass noodle prawn and green curry. Three items for two persons! What a nice meal it was.

24 April, 2015 I visited Khun Thai with my friend, the Penang Hokkien book author Tan Choon Hoe and his wife Sandy. We ordered quite a number of dishes. There was the clear tomyam, the papaya salad (som tam), the glass noodle dish with prawns, the kangkung tempura and minced chicken meat. It was a very delicious lunch. The bill came to RM78.75, which to me was quite a good price considering the amount of food we had.

Getting there

Restoran Khun Thai is located on the Gertak Sanggul main road. The turning in is about 20 meters before the turning in to Hai Boey Seafood. It is quite a distance from the main road, and is not practical to reach by bus. I would recommend that you go there by car.

My Visit to Restoran Khun Thai

I went to Restoran Khun Thai again, this time for lunch, on 23 June, 2013. It was a hot and hazy Sunday. There were only the two of us, my wife and me, so we took our seat at the detached hut. We ordered the tom yam, sambal petai and prawns fried with salted eggs.

All were very delicious, especially when taken with hot white rice. For drinks, we ordered a jar of sugar cane water. Although we enjoyed our food very much, we couldn't finish anything, so we had the balance wrapped up, for our dinner the following day.
