Fusion In Balance
Sanoook Thai-Japanese Restaurant at Sunway Pyramid Hotel West is all out to wow diners with the clever combination of flavours and ingredients. This brand new restaurant, not more than 2 months ago aims to cater to diners who want the best of both worlds. With tastes of Thai and Japanese together in a dish, they're all set to tingle the senses of our palates.
Their name of "Sanook" meant "fun" in Thai. With an additional of ani and "O" to present a circle of friendship, Sanoook practically means having fun together with friends while savouring the fusion of Thai and Japanese flavours to make a dining experience a fun adventure!
You'll be greeted with an attractive mini toy train painting in bright red upon entering. Oh yes, the restaurant is quite distant from the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall. Located at the new Sunway Pyramid Hotel West, you will have to walk thru PADINI Concept Store and The PARENTHOOD International Preschool, and another floor down to reach Sanoook.

4 Season Platter
Moving on, we have a good-tasting of their 4 Season Platter. A combination of 4 deep fried mini bites of Crispy Calamari, Salmon Cream Croquette, Vegetarian Spring Roll and must haves of the favourites of Thai Fish Cake with Thai Chicken Ball.
These delightful bites are not only tasty but refreshing as well, eaten with 3 choices of dipping sauce to suit your palates. Well, it's a great starter set to get your appetite going. My favourite pick is the Salmon Cream Croquette, that came with the crispy on the outside with creamy taste of melted cheese oozing out upon the first bite.
Tom Yum Soup With River Prawn
Once done with the starter, we just have to try their Tom Yum Soup With River Prawn. Filled with 5 fresh and succulent River prawns and some shimeji mushroom, this red spicy broth is really strong and rich in herbs and spices, but with a toned down spiciness,

Salmon Belly Skewer With Lime Chili Sauce
Salmon Belly Skewer ~ Totally a premium treat for the senses. Salmon Belly is also known as "Sake Toro" in Asian cuisine, an expensive delicacy in Japan. The chef had upped thing a notch by rolling out the more substantial ingredients.
Grilling the Sake Toro produces a natural caramelising effect and the marbling of fat in the belly makes it's very flavourful indeed. I skipped the dipping sauce to get into the original fatty taste and textures. Good stuff, highly recommended!
Besides salmon, we tasted some chicken breast in skewers. Meaty and tender, best eaten with the Massaman Sauce. The famous sauce is a Thai style curry sauce made from onions, coconut milk, peanuts and chilli which explained its creaminess.
Vege (Tomato, Corn, Zucchini, Capsicum, leek) With Sanoook Sauce
Well, after having a feast of meat and seafood food items, we balanced it out with mixed vegetable skewers. 5 types of vegetable excellent for grilling is the tomato, corn, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, capsicum, broccoli, King mushroom and leek. House made Sanoook Sauce is the best complementing sauce with these bland vegetables.

Each bite of this fusion sushi is a pure burst of flavours, with the creamy spicy sauce complementing with the rest of the ingredients.
