Not very impressive in term of selection on the menu. Owner are not quick to adept to the Asian fusion and changing trend in the eating habit of people.

The food is not as fancy as the look. the service is very slow and the food is sometimes very raw. However the cakes are amazing. I think the only reason you are going for secret recipe should be for cakes.

Their cakes are wonderful, probably one of the best in Miri. The food tries to be something else but it is just fast food. The big problem with this is that fast food should come with fast service and this is not the case. I found the service unbelievably slow and inefficient.

If you like cake and coffee you will love secret recipe, a large variety of cakes and drinks. They do other food but it's the cakes people love.

I tried secret recipe in bintang mall, miri several years ago and it was awful. With that in mind I was reluctant to try this branch at Pelita commercial centre. They have a wide range menu, but sadly we had to go through the "No have" game with the waiter.This game is not exclusive to S.R., and can be played... More

I love to eat at this place, nice food especially japanese soba. Yummy, but waiting time is too long and they need to improve and serves below 15 mins.

This is THE place to get birthday cakes from! A wide selection is available. As for the hot food, it's not bad, just average. It's all about the cakes!

SR is a chain you find everywhere in Malaysia. They're good for cakes especially the cheesecakes and chocolate cakes although they're fairly expensive. On the food front, much of it is reheated and served so it's not the freshest food you might be expecting to get. This SR is at a good location and it's easy to get parking most... More
