Nice place to chill out

it is located near A&W pj. If you are using the LRT then u exit at Taman jaya station and NOT university station. You will see A&W just walk couple of meters and you are there. A good standard bar and well stacked. the beers are chilled and the atmosphere is good. You can either sit by the pool... read more

This unique restaurant near PJ Hilton hotel serves excellent food. It's deco matches its name. They have open and covered seating areas, and a cosy bar too. This is a great place for business gathering and hang out with friends.

Ate here a couple of times whilst on business in PJ. Easy walk from the PJ Hilton and made a nice change from the hotel fare (which is also good - see my review of the hotel). Good food at a good price. Menu is not vast but enough of a choice. Beer is kept well and chilled correctly. Staff... More

The food is really good bar standard stuff at very reasonable prices. The staff are friendly which is unusual in KL. The bar is nice but very quiet unless there is a international rugby match on. One suggestion would be to turn down the air con slightly in the bar as it is a bit cold. The pool is nice... More

We went for drinks and snacks again earlier this month. It's unusual given its African theme and, with the exterior areas having been refurbed around 2 years ago, it really is a fun escape hidden away in Petaling Jaya. Very relaxed and cosy bar, good outside seating - and the food is both interesting and tasty. African themes and excellent... More

First review this forum after years coming here for dinner....visit for dinner tonight with friends after a long absence. New menu for us but many of the favourites still there like the steak pie which is a firm favourite and a belly busting portion! This time for me went for the ostrich schnitzel which again was a good sized portion... More

This place has been around for some time now and the fact that it has survived this far, it can only means the food kept it sustainable. African food as you can imagine. Not a place when you have beautiful decorated food like those in fine dining outlets. So, let's not compare to anything. While I haven't step foot to... More

The place is very nice, with a realistic tropical setting touch just steps away from the University LRT station. Do NOT trust TripAdvisor's address or directions, as they are dead wrong! The restaurant is located at the PJ palm sports complex so you can even bring the kids for a swim. There are a few bars in the complex. The... More

Out of Africa, a South African themed restaurant and bar is a relaxed option in Petaling Jaya with excellent food and a fun atmosphere. It is no surprise that it is a regular venue for both the South African and Australia/NZ expat clubs. The Zebu steak pie and the bobotie are particularly recommended whilst a good Roast Beef and Yorkshire... More

This is a top place. Its next to a public swimming pool (just 5 ringgits if you fancy a swim) and places some nice quiet chill-out vibes. The beer is cold, the wine is good and the pizzas are excellent. If you've never had halal ostrich Carpaccio before, get yourself down there.
