MyElephant Thai Restaurant @Happy Mansion

myElephant Thai restaurant has established themselves in Malaysia since 2007. In this span of 10 years, they already have spread their wings throughout Klang Valley area and Ipoh with 6 neighborhood oriented branches. The concept of this restaurant is not by opening in high density area such as mall or or commercial business district.. All their branches are opened in residential area. This is what make myElephant more unique than any other common Thai restaurants.
Green Aroma is their signature drink which is made from fresh pandan with lemongrass with herbs @RM8.48. The taste is really calming and soothing.
myEle's Phad Thai @RM13.67
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - The taste is very average because any Phad Thai at Thailand which is selling by the road side taste better than this. Honestly, I cannot believe they rate this as their best seller.

Pineapple Fried Rice @RM10.49
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Another tasteless and unimpressive dish. Severely lack of the fried fragrant and pineapple taste in it.

Deep fried chicken whole leg @RM6.89
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is the best fried chicken I ever had. Aromatic fried skin combined with the soft and tender meat is really a divine pleasure. It was too good and we had to order another one.

Tom Som seafood (1 pax) @RM10.60
Outlook: 1/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a clear galangal, lemongrass and lime soup with aromatic Thai herbs. Looks can be deceiving but once you take the first sip of the soup, you will definitely fall in love with it. It is spicy and sour but not until the extend you will hate it. It is really appetizing and tasty. They only serve in 1 pax or 4 pax portion. 

Mango with Glutinous Rice @RM9.01
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 1/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - They have just ruined the image of Thai mango which is famous for their super sweet mangoes. The mango they served to us is extremely sourish. If they can't get a sweet mango, they should have just mark this dessert is not available on that particular day. What a letdown!

Overall, I find it weird for an authentic Thai restaurant can't even make their signature pineapple fried rice and Phad Thai right. However, surprisingly their ala-carte dishes such as the chicken and the soup are extremely good. It seems like they have two chefs preparing ala-carte order and lunch set meals. Otherwise, I cannot understand why the quality of the taste can this big contrast. 

Total Damage: RM69.03
Ambiance: 3/5
Service: 3/5
Food Serving Speed: Fast
Will I Revisit?: Yes, to try their other ala-carte meal. Not the set.
