Sanoook, Thai-Japanese Restaurant @ Sunway Pyramid Hotel West

For those who haven't already know, I went to Bangkok last Wednesday and just came back on Sunday late night.
This time, I went together with Lik and the cousin from Melbourne.
It's been 2 years since we last visited Bangkok.
Bangkok still the best place to eat authentic Thai food, has all kinds of lifestyles and budget shopping, and very good massage and spa.
And this time, I realized they have many Japanese restaurants in the city.
So if you want to have a very authentic Japanese dining experience, you should try one of them for your next trip.
Trust me! They have very good quality food with very delicious dining experience.
Okay, with no more hesitation, let's proceed to my main topic today with Sanoook, the first restaurant to combine Thai and Japanese delectable cuisines in Klang Valley.



Sanoook located at Sunway Pyramid Hotel West.
It is an extended building which linked with the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall.
The easiest way to look for this restaurant is pass through the Padini Concept Store (new wing), step on the escalator to go one floor down, and you will see Sanoook on your right and the Hotel West is on your left.



Sanoook is inspired by the love affair with Thai and Japanese cuisine.
They use secret, authentic Thai recipes from their flagship restaurant Chakri Palace and adding a twist of presentation and creative culture of Japanese food.
"Sanook" means "fun" in Thai, and they added another "o" to represent a circle of friendship.
Hence, Sanoook means having fun together with friends.
In Sanoook, they believe that a good meal can turn strangers into friends, strengthen friendship, and bring solace to a bad day.
So guys! Do not forget to have a photo fun at Sanoook with the little red train and the props that they have for you! #hehe







The restaurant has a very cozy place and atmosphere.
The dim lighting make the dining experience more comfortable.
The space inside the restaurant isn't very big, so you may find many willing diners to squeeze with you, especially for the 2 and 4 seats tables.





If you come here by yourself, then take a seat at the bar and enjoy watching the chef in action. :)





Besides, they also have a nice outdoor area whereby you can chill out with delicious food and a glass of cold beer.



Sneak peak on their electronic menu.
You can place your order and check the total bill with this little gadget.



4-Season Platter @ RM37.90 is something good to have when you go with at least 4 person.
The platter has 4 different dishes which are Vegetarian Spring Roll, Crispy Calamari, Thai Fish Cake with Thai Chicken Ball and Salmon Cream Croquette.
If you asked me which one is my top favourite, I will say the Salmon Cream Croquette because it has a thick and creamy cheese filling inside which will literally melt in your mouth when you take a bite.



If you are trying to clean up your stomach, then you should get the healthy blazing salad of the Sanoook Salad Japanese Cucumber Wrapped with Salmon, Avocado & Baked Apple @ RM29.90.
The sesame dressing goes so well with the fresh ingredients such as lettuce, cherry tomatoes, Japanese cucumber and baked apple.



Oh! Please you must try this!
Pan Fried Tuna Steak with Spinach & Mixed Mushroom served with Teriyaki Sauce @ RM28.90 is the best of the best!
The tender and juicy steak is so delightfully that will melt in your mouth easily!.
Trust me! Nothing can beat this ever! #lol





The Tom Yam Soup with River Prawn @ RM23.90 is kind of different as the others I had before.
It's an unusual sake type that you need to pour the soup into the bowl at anytime you want to eat.
I find the overall taste is so great because it has very moderate spiciness and saltiness.





You might thought that good sushi can only be found at the traditional Japanese restaurants.
Let Sanoook proves that you are wrong!
The sushi at Sanoook can beat with any sushi at the authentic Japanese restaurants.
The rice has excellent taste and moisture texture and I would said they are so perfect!
First time heard of the Tuna with Tom Yam Sauce Sushi @ RM27.90? #hehe





Soft shell crab sushi is very common at any Japanese restaurant, but Soft Shell Crab with Thai Mango Chili Sauce Sushi @ RM34.90 is only available at Sanoook.
For me, the sushi menu is a bit pricey, but I think the quality and the delicious food made it all worth it!





Another highlight Sanoook Rainbow with Sesame Sauce @ RM29.90, which use the fresh cucumber rolled over the sushi rice instead of the Nori sheet.
What a great sushi menu with the special sesame dressing that had prepared.



Let's move on to their signature dish of the skewer series.





My top pick of the skewer menu is the Salmon Belly Skewer with Lime Chili Sauce @ RM77.90. The Best, and it's one skewer that I enjoyed the most! #slurp





My second pick is the Veggies skewer with tomato, corn, zucchini, capsicum, leek with Sanoook Sauce @ RM28.90.
One thing to mention is the grilled veggies do not dry out on the grill, but stays moist and flavourful.





If you like chicken, then probably you will enjoy the Chicken Skewer with Massaman Sauce @ RM32.90.
Remember to dip the meat with Sanoook in-house special made sauce, otherwise the meat is too dried-out on it's texture.



Chicken Burger with Teriyaki Sauce @ RM17.90 is one Japanese inspired burger.
It breaks the tradition serving with the Japanese rice bun instead of burger bun and also replace the french fries with the corn.
A portion like this will definitely makes you feel full!



I am a durian fans, so this Fresh Durian Ice-Cream with Coconut Milk @ RM21.90 got my big applause after my first try.
It's so milky! It's so creamy! It's so rich!
What's more?! It's overloaded with the flavours of durian!
It's definitely a nice dessert for the durian fans with the grass-jelly in it!



I am surprise to have bingsu at a Thai Japanese restaurant.
Thai Volcano @RM21.90 is something interesting to give a try as it is made of the famous Thai Milk Tea in Thailand.
The shaved ice is towered up with flour cake, pearl and sago toppings.



Make sure you share it because the portion is pretty big which I think it's made for sharing though. :)



Sauce it!
Shake it!
Snack it!
Last but not least, Sanoook has their own Sanoook's Salad Jar which they freshly made daily.
It's such a perfect healthy meal or light snack in between!



It comes with 4 flavours which are #1 Japanese Soba Salad Jar#2 Salmon Salad Jar#3 Fruity Muesu Salad Jar, #4 Thai Salad Jar.
The salad jar is so convenient to bring it with you to anywhere, plus the price is confirm affordable which is in the range of RM12.90 - RM14.90.
Seriously, no doubts for a thumbs up for this!



All are good! So tell me which one is your favourite?



Don't forget to mention, all the Sanoook's food suppliers are with Halal Certified!



No matter if you are a Thai food or Japanese food lover, I am sure the food at Sanoook will be satisfying and will definitely fulfill your stomach.
It's so difficult to choose the best dish at Sanoook because all the delicacies are really tasty and delicious.
If you have visited Sanoook, please share your most favourite dish with me so that I can order it on my next visit!
