This is probably the hardest place to find in the entire guide. It is in the same mall as Jaipur, sort of. It’s behind everything else, not facing any street, and then up some stairs. Good luck. Their web site says, “We are located behind Sun Trust Bank and right next to the hair salon in the plaza.”
Most of it is Thai food, sort of, but the chef is Chinese from Malaysia and he cooks a good dozen or so Malaysian dishes. Furthermore, the place has only two tables, usually a good sign, and it looks a lot like somewhere you might see in Malaysia. So far the quality isn’t quite yet there, but the place shows promise and I will go back and try it again. He could use some encouragement for the real thing.
I tried to find this place tonight.
It is gone.
