Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant, Ampang, Malaysia











The Thai Veg Fish Fam is a great place to take visitors and a quick getaway from the city. Nestled in the hills of Hulu Langat, the restaurant is surrounded by a green valley of farms and jungle. Afloat on a small natural lake sits the bamboo seating area and even in the middle of the day you feel comfortable with a light breeze sauntering off the cool water. The first journey getting there can be a bit tricky if you're not familiar with the area, but seems so easy once you've been. Head out of town on Jalan Ampang, past Ampang Point, past Ampang Waterfront all the way to a traffic light for an intersection with Jalan Taman Putra (same street as Carrefour). Turn right into this street. Keep going straight until you get to the second traffic light for Jalan Ulu Langkat Ampang - the road that leads you to the Look Out Point. Head up a windy ascent continuing about 1km past the Look Out Point and you will see a small sign for the Veg Fish Farm on your right. Since my first few visits the owners have created a new entry road making for a much smoother ride than the previous bumpy dirt track. The Look Out Point by the way has a spectacular view of KL and would be perfect if you planned to be there around sunset either after a late lunch or before dinner on your way to the restaurant. Fresh local produce is used by the Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant to create delicious Thai dishes of which much is grown on an onsite farm. Some is also available for purchase to take home. You won't find any fresher fish around either as you'll see it's kept in and netted out of the pond just before cooking. Picks not to be missed are the salt crusted talapia, fresh stir fried seasonal vegetables, tom yum soup and (no Thai meal is complete without) mango sticky rice, which they do a mighty fine job of with generous servings of both rice and mango.

  3. Sean: Yes, cute ducks... I didn't dare get close enough to get a picture of the geese though - they weren't quite as friendly :-)

    Smitten: Yes, super fresh!

  4. The place is amazing....a paradise in KL's suburb to get away from the city, and it makes you feel like you are in some island in Thailand. The Sunday we went, there were full of Chinese. They know best where to get good seafood, I guessed. And the food....yes, almost everything you eat were alive before being cooked. That's how fresh it is. Having said that, after the meal I felt my mouth quite dry and a bit funny in my throat. I suspect they use MSG in their cooking.

  6. Hi!
    I also dined at this restaurants but I think there is a better restaurant in the area that is better.
    They serve awesome Thai food but there is a star dish that everyone will order, which is the steamed tilapia in speciality sauce. Do check it out at http://jyjoonyoo.blogspot.com/2013/04/log-savadee-thai-restaurant.html
