Rak Thai is a Thai restaurant that serves authentic Thai food as the owner, chef, and server are all Thai. This casual eatery offers authentic Thai dishes as you would eat in Thailand, without modification. Although the staffs don’t speak English or Malay they do their best to fulfil the customer’s needs and requirements, such as toning down the spiciness (upon request), giving out free mineral water when the dishes are too spicy, etc.

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison has been one our favorites whenever we’re craving for Japanese Tonkatsu. The Tonkatsu set comes with refillable shredded cabbage with sesame, Japanese dressings, tonjiru (pork-flavored miso soup) and Japanese rice. Whenever top up for rice, cabbage and soup is needed there’s not a need to raise up your hand and alert the waiters as they are highly trained professionals who consistently has an eye on your table. No matter how busy the restaurant is, they are always fast to refill whenever you need constantly without any reminder.

Located at Bangsar Shopping Mall, Dancing Fish is a hidden gem of Malay-Indo dishes such as the signature Dancing Fish, Gulai Pucuk Paku, and Balinese Crispy duck. Price is on the higher side compared to most Malay and Indonesian restaurants but its strongly justified by the eatery’s impressive service. The staff knew the menu inside out and is willing to recommend dishes without any hidden agenda. It’s fair to say the waiters are well trained, super attentive and great at taking photo for your Instagram too.

Sri Ganapathi Mess is housed in a single-storey residential area, providing a dine-at-home at your neighbourhood amma’s house.

myBurgerLab is no stranger to many burger lovers in and out of the Klang Valley, especially after the eatery’s brilliant marketing of the Nasi Lemak burger. One thing that’s arguably better than the restaurant’s burgers is their sincerity. Judging from the company’s lengthy post on social media, they come off as humble and sincere, they genuinely care about everyone (not only their customers, but everyone).

This is one of the few restaurants in the Klang Valley that’s not keen on taking your money by recommending the most expensive burger. Instead, they treat you as people, not customers which earned them the number 1# spot on this list.
