Nok Thai Restaurant @ Damai Plaza, Kota Kinabalu


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.

Found this old news article dated 31/5/2004 framed on the wall 

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.

Nok Thai

A basket of Sweet Potato Chips was served on the table together with iced water

Chicken Red Tom Yum (RM19) with moderate spiciness

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

Yam Leb Muo Nang - Sweet and Sour Boneless Chicken Feet (RM18)

Free Dessert - Thai Chendol
A little bit different than the Malaysian's sibling

Nok means bird in Thai, if you are curious.

FOODIOT'S POINT: 75% (People always said that Nok Thai is expensive)
