Beginning of Our Journey

Sa Wad Dee Kha! สวัสดีค่ะ (n.) Hello in Thai

In the serendipitous encounter of two ordinary Thai partners back in 2016,
“Mike – Anonchai Karnruang” and “Tan – Supachaya Neerachakul” co-founded Thai Moment
by Thai Essential Cuisine Sdn Bhd (Muslim Friendly Cuisine). Inspired by a simple yet profound
Thai TV Advertisement portraying the love between a daughter and mother, a vision was born:
“Thai Food is home.” Thus began the very first “Thai Moment” in Malaysia.

Thai Moment embodies the essence of Bangkok Café, originating in Thailand
and blossoming in Malaysia. With a fervent passion for cooking,
our chefs “Payap Porpalee,” “Lampai Saisarung,” & “Hafsan Saleah”
infuse every dish with the warmth of Thai Home Cook style.
We trust that with every spoonful, you’ll experience the unmistakable flavors of “Thai” and
the comforting embrace of “Home,” transcending the need for a stereotypical “very Thai” concept.

In the dawn of 2020, a new chapter unfolded as Mike envisioned a novel
Thai BBQ Concept (non-halal), leading to the inception of “Actually Thai Sdn Bhd”
under the brand “The Piggy Mookata” – the First Thai Charcoal BBQ & Steamboat in USJ 10.

We have transformed all our outlets into havens of modernity,
adorned with simple yet inviting decor aimed
at offering you the utmost comfort and homeliness.

With pride, we extend our Thai Hospitality to serve you,
embracing you in our warm embrace.

so, we say to you

“tan hai aroi”
(bon appétit)
