Sawatdee Kaa สวัสดี! Greetings everyone.

No, I'm not having any vacation in any city of Thailand lately. Although I am missing the craziness of shopping at Bangkok city but I am more missing towards their authentic mouth-watering Thai cuisine cause I couldn't get enough of them when I was in Bangkok last month. And because of that I went and hunt whether is there any other eateries that serve authentic and scrumptious Thai cuisine around Kota Kinabalu city to satisfy my Thai cuisine urges.

Then, I came across where the newly opened hotel that tucked in the heart of Kota Kinabalu city, Ming Garden Hotel is currently spicing up the month of November by serving "Thai Buffet Dinner" at one of their dining area, Golden Dew Bistro that located on the first floor of Ming Garden Hotel, hence immediately I went and have a try on it.

#29: Look at Sherrie's plate - It's filled with a ray of distinctive meals.

The only thing that I'm a lil bit dissapointed was I couldn't find any of these three popular Thai signature dishes - Pineapple Fried Rice, Mango Stinky Rice and Pandan Chicken. But overall, I'm totally satisfied with more than 30 dishes that being served. Almost all the meals perfectly meet my liking and most importantly, freshness is the ultimate criteria when comes to buffet. Sometimes I wish I could have a huge tummy to have all of these spicy authentic Thai cuisine. 

Thai Buffet Dinner is served daily throughout the month of November from 6.30 pm - 10.30 pm at Golden Dew Bistro with the price of RM70.00++ per pax.

  11. Adventure travel agents make any travel possible and help you to enjoy your travel even more. Traveling is a way of exploring and experiencing what a particular place can offer, and all the things that can be really adventurous. However, travel will not be successful without adventure travel agents.
