Quaint and peaceful with zesty flavour. This restaurant sits near Bukit Damansara, and provides a delightful mix of Asian dishes. The authentic Japanese dishes coupled with tangy Thai tastes provide a unique experience and a treat for your taste buds. Although slightly pricy, it is recommended for those looking for something different and a quiet getaway. Recommended for couples on... More

Loved the Spicy Salmon Pizza with thin crispy crust! Snacks like Lotus Roots Chips and Chicken Curry Popcorn are good to pair with beers. Oh and don't forget the Fish Basket and yummilicious Durian Panacotta. The environment is really calming and a quiet enough to have conversation with your friends. There are also room for private event it seems, was... More

After a wander around the interesting Publika mall you are spoiled for choice of places to eat. Ploy is a bit more expensive than most, but it has chic decor, and the service is excellent, Daniel was particularly informative about the menu. The food is Asian fusion, with strong Japanese and European influences. The pomello salad was fresh and had... More

The idea of amalgamating Thai, Japanese and Asian cuisines was indeed interesting. The inspiration is definitely modern however it fell short of taste. Some of the dishes were executed well - particularly the range of appetizers and pizzas. Most suitable for sharing. However on the night we had dinner, the main courses were bland and oily. We had the lemongrass... More

I was surprised that main courses did not come with either rice/potatoes/sides as that would really complement a meal. As i mentioned in the title, portion is about 20% smaller than other similar restaurants. Hope your management will look into this

I love the dim environment as well the interior deco. I was so amazed by the menu as there are many nice dishes shown. Being the first time visit to this restaurant, I am pretty follow the Chef Recom indication as my choice. I love the avocado salads and the coconut ice cream dessert.

Second visit and it didn't disappoint. Serving size is small so you may have to order multiple portions. The fish basket is excellent and goes well w beer. The Ploy black rice has an unusual twist and it was tasty. Popcorn chicken pizza looked more like fried chicken w pineapples on taco, it didn't disappoint. Waze direction can be a... More

Ploy is always a good choice if you are looking at affordable fine dine for Japanese, Thai and Western fusion. Simply love the ambience, suitable for friends gathering and couple date. Service is awesome and food portion is just nice...Personally I love the sushi maki, pomelo salad, steak and durian panna cotta dessert!

It's a very cheeky place to eat with a really nice ambience. The tagline "Ploy with your food" really comes into play with a lot of their dishes. Their Korean Fried Chicken is super crispy, all you want to do is pick it up and hear the crunch as you bite in. Their steak is juicy, their lamb is hearty... More

Ploy is all about Modern Asian Cuisine. It also means 'gem' in Thai. Inspired by the true gems of Japanese and Thai cuisine, we love the interplay of sweet, sour, salty, spicy and umami flavours, we believe in meticulous preparation and are dedicated to using only the freshest ingredients. By applying these basic tenets to our favorite foods – we think you'll find dining at Ploy dazzling.
