Malai Thai Cuisine Awarded Thai SELECT, A Symbol of Authentic Thai Cuisine by Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion

What is Thai SELECT?
Thai SELECT is a certification awarded by Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce. It certifies the food, hospitality and atmosphere of restaurants, ensuring the preparation of an authentic Thai experience.

Whenever you travel, finding the Thai SELECT stamp of approval assures you that delicious Thai cuisine is
served in a pleasant environment and charming hospitality – the full journey into the Thai culture.

There are strict guidelines to be followed to be recognized by Thai SELECT, and there are four categories of certification: Signature, Classic, Casual and Unique. Thai SELECT Signature is granted to restaurants that serve authentic Thai food with a taste of premium quality, refined decoration and excellent service, while Thai SELECT Classic is awarded to Thai Restaurants of excellent quality.

The symbol is given to restaurants in four categories, assessed by type of restaurant, decoration, and level of food and service excellence.

Restaurants with Thai SELECT Casual offer good quality Thai food, but have limited services, while Thai
SELECT Unique restaurants are for selected restaurants within Thailand that offer local specialties. There is
also Thai SELECT Products, which are Thai food products made the traditional way.

Award Ceremony & Luncheon
An award ceremony was held in Malai Thai Cuisine, located along Jalan Perak, Kuala Lumpur on 14 July 2022. This restaurant is awarded Thai SELECT by Thailand’s Department of International Trade Promotion. Nestled a stone’s throw from KLCC on the ground floor of Cormar Suites, Malai Thai has already become a firm favourite amongst many of the locals, expat residents and businesses.

The Thai Ambassador and representatives from the office of Commercial Affairs of the Royal Thai Embassy even put their hands-on for a cooking demonstration at the restaurant.

I was introduced to a few authentic Thai dishes during the luncheon hosted by Malai Thai Cuisine. The delicious dishes are Green Curry Chicken, Fried Fish with Mango Salad, Tom Yum River Prawns, Shrimps with Minced Chicken, Deep Fried Shrimp Balls and Green Mango Salad. The experience was definitely pleasurable, enjoying authentic Thai dishes with the cozy ambience in the restaurant.
