In case you didn't know, Absolute Thai @ Kota Damansara used to be Mr Tom Yam. So if you've eaten here before, it's exactly the same, but different. Where the old interior was mainly white and red, this time they've gone with black. Amazingly, it looks stunning. And it shows as the restaurant was full to the brim.
Mr Tom Yam's decor made the whole place look cheap. But with Absolute Thai's new decor, it certainly feels more worthy of its price. From my observation, I don't think they've increased their price though, so that's good.
On to the food then - I had Pad Thai (RM15.90). Unfortunately, they ran out of the pad thai noodles, so they had it replaced with Kuey Teow noodles instead. Hmm. It was OK. I guess they didn't anticipate the increase in patronage after the rebranding.
My wife ordered clear Tom Yam Seafood (RM15.90). I prefer the normal Tom Yam but my wife seems to really like it clear. It was OK as well.
We also ordered Steamed Siakap with Lime & Coriander (RM42.90). This was really good. The fish was fresh and the broth was tasty.
For drinks, we had a Thai Iced Tea (RM9.00). It was OK.
As you can see by now, food here don't come cheap. At least, with the new ambiance, it's sort of justified. The service was very good though. Staff were attentive and served you with a smile. If you're around Sunway Giza, do give it a try. Or you could try Bangkok House instead, which is properly Halal instead of pork-free. But I've yet to try it, so can't really comment.
