Promptly served Express Lunches at Amaya

The Amari, established as a Thai brand in Johor Baru, has earned an enviable reputation for the tasty Thai cuisine served at Amaya Food Gallery.

Choices from the Express Lunch menu

This is because I know of regular diners who would make a beeline for the Thai section of the buffet first before savouring the other items in the sumptuous spread.

When the Express Lunch menu was launched, I was delighted to discover that at least three of their popular Thai dishes are among the items listed in the menu, each served with steamed rice.

Fans of Thai flavours who cannot get enough of the Amari Signature Chicken Green Curry, Thai Three-Flavoured Fish Fillet and Thai Spicy Basil Minced Chicken, are now able to enjoy these dishes served for both lunch and dinner.

Besides the pleasure of enjoying their favourite flavours with a hearty rice meal, diners will appreciate the express service where these meals are promptly served to the table.

The many tables occupied by diners in the Amaya Food Gallery at lunch time is proof that the prompt service here is bringing them back again and again to enjoy a quick and tasty lunch with sufficient travel time to get back to their desks within the lunch hour.

served with Sambal Chilli dip and steamed rice
In addition to these tasty Thai temptations, another Asian flavour to savour is the Indonesian favourite of Ayam Penyet (deep-fried chicken) with Fried Tempeh and Beancurd, served with a fiery Sambal Chilli dip sauce and steamed rice.

Another popular choice is the Malaysian staple of Beef Rendang with a side of Acar Jelatah served with steamed rice.

If you prefer a non-spicy choice, my recommendation is the Deep-Fried Boneless Chicken Cutlet coated in Tangy Lemon Plum Sauce, also served with steamed rice.

Mushroom Sauce
If pasta is your preference, then you should taste the Amaya’s creation of Spaghetti pasta prepared with slow-cooked Pulled Beef.

Another delicious pasta choice is Spaghetti with tender pieces of Grilled Chicken Chop in Mushroom Sauce.

This menu of express meals is available for both lunch and dinner at only RM15 per set with free flow of the soft drink of the day.
