**************************************

 Sanoook is the first F&B concept in town inspired by two of the most popular cuisines in the world – Thai and Japanese. Using secret, authentic Thai recipes from the company’s flagship restaurant Chakri Palace – an award-winning Thai restaurant inspired by royal origins, and adding a twist of creative presentation and Japanese favourites.

Sanoook is the first to combine these two delectable cuisines.

‘Sanook’ or ‘sanuk’ means ‘fun’ or ‘syiok’ in Bahasa Malaysia but owner Caleen Chua spells it with an extra ‘O’ to denote a circle of friends or endless camaderie. By chance, ‘san’ in Japanese is an honorific title equivalent to Mr, Mrs or Miss as in ‘William-san’! So ‘Sanook’ is indeed a happy personality!

Tapping into the current food trend of yakitori, Sanoook has created its very own version of Thai skewers like Massaman Chicken, Green Curry Beef, Sweet Chili Salmon and Sanoook Vegetable skewers. The skewers are served sizzling hot and great for sharing with a choice of 2 or 4 skewers, living up to its brand name which means ‘fun with friends’.

If skewers aren’t enough to tempt you, Sanoook’s Sushi burgers and Sushi rolls will. Burger lovers can enjoy four different types of Sushi Burgers with gourmet patties of Chicken, Beef, Salmon and Soft-shell Crab. All sushi burgers come with a basketful of crispy burdock root chips, a healthier, less guilty indulgence. Sanoook’s sushi rolls are worth mentioning as it they have created the first sushi rolls with Thai flavours. 

The Tuna sushi with Tom Yam sauce is a surprisingly complementary combination for adventurous tastebuds as is the crispy Soft Shell Crab sushi with Thai Mango Chili sauce.

Living true to its Thai roots, Sanoook offers every Thai food lover’s must-haves including Thai Mango Salad, Pandan Chicken, Steamed Seabass with Lime and Chili, Phad Thai, and Tom Yam Soup. 

Those with a sweet-tooth will love their desserts likeThai Volcano (Thai Iced Tea shaved ice with pearls and almond flakes), Mango sticky rice with ice cream, Samurai Green Tea (Green Tea crème Brule with butter cookies) and of course the Thai favourite Red Ruby Water chestnut. 

Their signature mocktails and cocktails include the unforgettableTom Yam martini with a sensational combination of sweet, sour and spicy notes.

Sanoook was fficially launched on 2nd of September 2016 by Thailand Ambassador, H.E. Damrong Kraikruan and famous Japanese rock star Gackt who declared Thai cuisine is one of his favourites as he frequents Chakri Palace. 

The creative and colourful opening ceremony saw VIP guests tossing a giant bowl of Thai Glass noodle in unison--- very ‘Sanoook’ indeed! The 120 guests had a fun night embarking on a culinary journey of Thai and Japanese delicacies.

Sanoook is definitely one brand to watch out for as it represents the future of exhilarating cuisines where cultures and tastes merge. 

The first Sanoook outlet is at Sunway Pyramid Hotel West Annexe, an extension of the main Sunway Pyramid Mall. Opening hours are 10am – 11pm on Monday to Thursday and 10-1am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The restaurant has an extensive al fresco space and VIP room ideal for parties and events.
