The Majapahit Restaurant & Bar @ Acoris Mont Kiara: Enjoy Mouthfuls of an Ancient Empire

15:26 becky-wong 0 Comments

The Majapahit Empire was once a great and powerful empire that ruled over a large part of Southeast Asia. During its glory days, the Majapahit Empire stretched over the entire present-day Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Sulu Archipelago, Philippines and East Timor.

Inspired by this mighty empire, The Majapahit Restaurant & Bar in Arcoris Mont Kiara has dedicated their menu to flavours of Thailand and Indonesia, along with a mix of Malaysian and Vietnamese taste.

Situated opposite 1 Mont Kiara and just a few steps away from Plaza Mont Kiara, The Majapahit Restaurant & Bar gives out a seemingly casual vibe but thoughtfully arranged, if you look closer. Stepping into the restaurant, I can't help but to notice the tropical theme interior with greens and both wood and rattan furniture. The place is brightly lit up with lots of natural sunlight flowing through the floor to ceiling windows. If you happen to drop by on a breezy afternoon or evening, take an outdoor seat and enjoy the natural breeze.

Occupying 2 floors at Arcoris Mont Kiara, the restaurant is really spacious and can accommodate up to 200 pax. If you plan to visit on a Friday or Saturday night, bring some friends along to enjoy the food and while the live band keeps you and your friends entertained.

Curry Galore (RM 52). Don't know what to choose? The Platter section is a good place to start, especially the Curry Galore that comes with a tray of 4 types of umami-filled curry - Thai Red Curry Beef, Thai Green Curry Chicken, Indonesian Squid Curry and Malaysian Prawn Curry.

My personal favourite would be the Indonesian Squid Curry and Malaysian Curry, as they pack a stronger punch than the other 2 in terms of heat and spices. The Curry Galore is served with a side of Chapati Bread and Cassava Crackers.

Satay of Southeat Asia (RM 52 - 12 sticks) | (RM 84 - 20 sticks). Almost every country has their own version of meat on the stick, and in The Majapahit, you get to enjoy 4 of their signature satays - Balinese Fish Satay, Malaysian Chicken Satay, Indonesian Beef Satay and Vietnamese Sugarcane Prawn.

The satays are really succulent and each are paired with unique dipping sauces to go with.

Spicy Seafood Tom Yam (RM 32). Tom yam is a must have when it comes to Thai food. The hot and sour soup works wonder in awakening the palate. I was expecting the spiciness to be toned down a few notches due to the expat demographic, but how wrong was I!

The soup was nicely balanced with aromatics such as kaffir lime and lemongrass, with generous serving of sea bass, squid and prawns.

Crispy Flying Fish (RM 52). Fried till crispy, this beautifully presented fish is one of the signatures at The Majapahit, served sweet and spicy dark sauce.

Coconut Butter Chicken (RM 25). For a non-spicy option, the rich stew of tender chicken pieces tossed with blend of ground spices and coconut milk is certainly a highly-recommended dish. I love the hint of aromatic curry flavours that comes through really nicely in the thick gravy.

Thai Stir-Fried Baby Kailan (RM 29). Although you'll see a chili sign next to the dish on the menu, the dish is not spicy. The greens were perfectly cooked with prawns, garlic and oyster sauce.

Nasi Liwet (RM 4.50). I was told Nasi Liwet is a fragrant rice dish from Java, cooked in coconut milk, chicken broth and spices. If you are wondering how does the rice taste like. It has a very similar taste to chicken rice.

Vietnamese Drip Coffee (RM 13). My daily dose of coffee was satisfied with the thick and aromatic Vietnamese Drip Coffee at The Majapahit. The condense milk would be served separately so you can adjust the sweetness to your own liking.

Overall, it was a nice dining experience at The Majapahit Restaurant & Bar. If you are looking to hang out with friends over some nice food, or you have visiting friends who are looking for some local culinary experience, The Majapahit is a perfect spot to be.

Reservations are highly-recommended as the restaurant is usually full almost every day. However, you can do try your luck to walk-in.
