The Majapahit at Arcoris Mont Kiara sets a tone with its twist on Southeast Asian cuisine that had us feeling royal. Here’s why The Majapahit got our standing ovation for their food and décor.
Arcoris Mont Kiara is the new kid on the block, situated right opposite 1 Mont Kiara and just a few steps away from Plaza Mont Kiara. Located in one of the busiest areas in Mont Kiara, it is only apt to launch The Majapahit, where there was a lack of authentic Southeast Asian restaurants. The food served here are predominantly Thai and Indonesian dishes, with some Vietnamese and Malaysian twist, and seems to be a hit since the opening.
As we enter the restaurant, we were stunned with the tropical-themed décor which spans through the floor which can accommodate up to 200 pax. The restaurant is no doubt every social media influencers’ dream as each nook and cranny were a photo-op and the whole interior was lifted by pops of gold which injected a sense of luxe to the premises.
Interiors aside, we wondered if the food was up to the par — and it was. We were presented with starter platters, which is deemed a favourite by their customers. Curry Galore is a platter of four curries of Thai, Indonesian, and Malaysian cuisine. It was the perfect dish to order for group lunches as it offered both spicy and mild flavour options. Also, we were also served the Maha Rice Royale; a quartet of four versions of fried rice that complimented beautifully with the curry platter.
We were also intrigued to try the Crispy Flying Fish, which is a classic Indonesian special which is scrumptious with just plain white rice. Another recommendation was the Coconut Butter Chicken which was crispy chicken tenders in a creamy coconut cream sauce. It was succulent and can be eaten as an appetiser or as a side dish.
Each and every item served was fine-tuned and it did not cease in its identity as a Southeast Asian dish. Chef Pak Isan Santibi, who heads the kitchen at The Majapahit, also curated the dishes here. His past experiences specialising in various Southeast Asian cuisines is translated fluently into The Majapahit menu and it was apparent that the full menu – once it is done – would be a highly anticipated hit.
In addition to that, The Majapahit also offers its take on tapas, aptly dubbed as ‘sea-pas’ for Southeast Asian Tapas. And to go with any styled tapas, the wine and cocktail list at The Majapahit is extensive and certainly worth a try (or two) especially with their all-day Happy Hour in conjunction of the official launch. Speaking of booze, The Majapahit comes to live in the evening as the chill mood from the day is spiked to match the beat of the music from the live DJ deck that starts from the evening onwards.
Reservations are highly encouraged as the restaurant is full almost every day during lunch and dinner, but walk-ins are welcomed as the restaurant is big enough to accommodate up to 200 people at once. Lunchtime is popular here as the lunch sets start from a reasonable RM 18.90 only.
