When Nok Thai Restaurant is labelled as one of the oldest in Kota Kinabalu, I wonder how long has the restaurant exist. Not too long maybe, some told me 15+ years (since the existence of Damai Point) and the following news article dated back 11 years ago showed some proof.

Well, we ordered not-to-be-missed Chicken Red Tom Yam, the ever popular Chicken Feet Cold Salad and a new Thai Dish - Prawn Stirred Fried in Shrimp Paste. It turned up the tom yum was, piquant as expected in every tom yum but not a big shout; but the new dishes, was very very appetizing! The prawn was coated in spicy shrimp paste - just like sambal! The plate eventually ended up clean and shiny because we both loved every bit of it.

|Like most of the chicken tom yum, chicken breast which is tasteless was being used :(|
|Prawn Stirred Fried with Shrimp Paste (RM39)|
Highly recommended! Price was reasonable to me due to the size of the prawn and freshness

|Free Dessert - Thai Chendol|
A little bit different than the Malaysian's sibling
Nok means bird in Thai, if you are curious.
