In 1999, driven by the desire to bring authentic Thai food to Kuala Lumpur, our founder, Mr Thanee Laivarintr, along with two Board of Directors, opened Rain Nudle House in KLCC. Rave reviews, and a quick-developing fan base made the culinary visionaries decide to expand their offerings to a more premium venture.
In a space of just six months after the success of Rain Nudle House, Amarin officially opened its door in Mid Valley Megamall and it has continued to find favor with diners throughout the years, establishing itself as one of the foremost Thai restaurants in the Klang Valley. The same positive response was accorded to Bangkok Jam when it opened in BB Park in 2001.
The popularity of these three restaurants birthed the first Absolute Thai outlet in IPC Shopping Centre in 2005. The brand’s ‘Hospitality with a Heart’ slogan, along with their stellar food offerings led to the extension over 15 outlets, with thousands of guests enjoying signature dishes like the popular Thai Fish Cakes, Tom Yam Soup, Green Curry Chicken, Stir-fried Minced Chicken with Hot Basil Leaves, Steamed Siakap (Sea Bass) with Chilies, Garlic and Lime juice.
Presently the Group owns Absolute Thai, Amarin, Busaba, Basil, Celadon and Thai Thai, all which serve different market segment and dining preferences, but with the thread of warm hospitality, and delicious authenticity uniting the brands.
All the restaurants in the Group continue with their promise to serve authentic Thai food prepared by chefs from Thailand, using only quality and authentic ingredients from the Land of Smiles.
