Tamarind Springs @ Ampang

520 is a romantic day, homophones as I Love You in Chinese reading . Coincidently, 520 is my bff birthday! We celebrated the birthday boy's 'big day' at Tamarind Springs, Ampang. Tamarind Springs has 2 restaurants inside, up stair was Fine Indochinese cuisine while down stair was Fine Thai Cuisine.

When we reached there, we were like.. Are we in Bali? You will feel like you are not in the city, a perfect getaway from the hustle city I must say. A natural getaway into a visual and sensory feast, lush sensuous appeal, Buddhism decoration which bring peace, tranquility and restore soul into your exhausted self.

We were here to try their Indochinese Cuisine today. When we reached the reception, there were staff standing front of reception greeted us and leaded us to our side view table. The captain was introduced us a few best selling dishes, we decided to order Apple Vinegar w Deep Fried Grouper Fish, Stir Fried Chicken w Lemongrass Leaf and Cashew Nut, Seafood Coconut Soup

 Inside restaurant

 Black rice (RM 10). It's soft and grain. Scientist researched that black rice rivals blueberries as source of healthful antioxidant and Vit E. ;D

 Apple Vinegar w Deep Fried Grouper Fish (RM 99.00). It's vinegar sauce and salad was awesome, fish fillet was well fried. But to be frank, the fish itself was not really fresh and this spoilt the whole dish.

 Chicken & coconut soup (RM36). This soup taste very mild as we can't taste the sour and spicy flavour which should contain in this soup. There's a lot herbs and lemongrass inside but we barely can taste the flavour of herbs, maybe this soup boiled not enough of time. Worth mentioning that there's some coconut flesh inside the soup.

Stir Fried Chicken with lemongrass and cashew nut (RM42). Chicken was tender but taste ordinary. This dish taste more alike sesame oil stir fried chicken.

Overall, all of the above dishes taste ordinary and less flavourful, we didn't 'WAO' at all.... But plus point was there's no MSG added and healthy option for dining. Beside, thumb up for their hygiene as for the dinnerware sets, food and environment.

After fulfilled our stomach, we went down stair for some walk and photos.
