My colleague told me that there is one Thai restaurant that i must try at Kepong area and he guide me there and remind me few times to order some of their specialties. He said that after you have try this place you will never ever want to go other Thai restaurant. I bring my parents along with my two naughty kids venture this new eatery place called Yee Wen Thai Restaurant at Kepong (near to Menjalara) . This place is here for almost 6 years as i saw there is a foot print stated as 2008. The restaurant hidden signboard is just like the above pictures and hardly seen. You just need to observe the Restoran Ong Kee which is just beside Yee Wen . We need to go up a few steps as there is a small staircase and need to come here early for dinner to avoid the crowd. I heard this place is owned by a Thai Couples and the owner can speak very well Cantonese language. He will communicate Thai language with his staff and they also can speak in Mandarin. The restaurant decoration is not impressive, simple set up but i find it very authentic and special place to be with Thai music.

Authentic thai food menu with so many choices. We settle down and ordered 5 dishes. This is the  Belacan paku pakis (RM9). Crunchy vege garnished with chili padi and lots of garlic+onions.

White Seafood Tom Yam Soup RM 20- Aromatic and savoury tom yam soup. Mixture of fresh prawns, fish, chicken meat, and squids. We can have two small bowls each for the four of us from this pot. The broth is really awesome and the tom yam taste is strong and pleasantly spicy. My mouth was a little bit numb after having this tom yam and the lemon fish..Spicy and sourness of these two dishes .. Really appetizing and i need more rice please. Simply irresistible!

Steamed Lemon Red Snapper (RM 42). Here the price of the fish is quite consistent and reasonable. The owner said "Don't worry" We charge very cheap here. We are worried because there is no price in their menu. He seems to be honest and telling us just go ahead and order. The fish was fresh and with lots of garlic, spicy and sour gravy added with lemon sauce. Delicious!! 

One of their signature food - The fried squid (RM 20). Extremely crispy chewy squid when i have my first bite! This is small portion. Can you believe that? I was still thinking they are giving me the medium size because all the food served here is really large portion! 

Pandan Chicken RM 18 - Fragrant and succulent chicken meat. Each portion of the chicken inside is really big and even my mum just finished half of it. the rest we just take away for my sisters.  My dad commented that this pandan chicken tastes really good and usually outside other Thai restaurant they charge this dish quite expensive.

Another section of the dining area.

Our total bill is RM 120.20 for 5 dishes+ rice+chinese tea.It is really worth it for the quality of the origin Thai food here and my dad nod his head saying this place is great and he is going to come over with his friends too. Truly satisfied with the food here with reasonable price.. Worth coming for next visit and agree with my colleague that the Thai food here is really damn good.
