SARAI @ Tanglin Mall - Refreshed Thai Fine Dining Experience With A Sleek New Interiors


SARAI is a fine dining Thai restaurant located at Tanglin Mall, helmed by Chef de Cuisine Lisa. In conjunction with its sleek new interior looks, the restaurant has put together a new menu and a curated beverage programme with in-house cocktails and mocktails infused with Thai influences to go with Thai food.

Amuse Bouche - Lab Gai 3/5

We had the Exploration Lunch Menu ($58 per pax) comprising an Amuse Bouche, Starters, Mains and Desserts. Teasing our appetite is the Lab Gai, a bite-size cucumber cup filled with spicy and sour minced chicken salad, whetting our appetite.

Starters - Nam Prik Ma Kae 2.5/5, Tod Mum Hu Plee 3.5/5

For the starters, we had the Nam Prik Ma Kae, a refreshing and textural stack of endives, Thai cucumber and jicama topped with tomato chilli dip. The other starter is the crispy Tod Mum Hu Plee. The assorted banana blossom cake is deep-fried to golden brown and paired with a spicy dip.

Tom Klong Pla 4/5

For the mains, it is a set meal on its own. It comes with a bowl of soup, a plate of rice, vegetable and protein. The sweet, spicy and tangy Tom Klong Pla comprises smoked barramundi and sweet leaf bush. It is a bowl of goodness packed with robust flavours.

Pad Hed Rum Gap Dog Pak Pang 4/5, Panang Nua Yang 4/5

The other two items, Pad Hed Rum Gap Dog Pak Pang and Panang Nua Yang are plated together with the fragrant steamed rice. The Australian Wagyu was perfectly grilled to a delightful, tender bite paired with panang curry sauce. The stir-fried Dou Miao flowers with assorted Mushrooms complete the hearty and comforting plate of rice.

Pla Hmug Nung Ma Naw 4.2/5

For the mains, diners can choose either the Australian Wagyu or Steamed Squid. If you are not into beef, you can go for the Pla Hmug Nung Ma Naw, steamed squid stuffed with roe sac with chilli lime garlic sauce. The flavours are brighter and sharper compared to the wagyu.

Jelly Bi Tuey 4/5

We ended the three-course lunch meal with Jelly Bi Tuey for dessert. The Pandan Panna Cotta with Coconut Foam was smooth and creamy, while the crispy lotus-shaped cracker provided extra texture enjoyment.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
