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... read more

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.

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

I usually go here to get the nicest lemon cheesecake, which unfortunately is not available at any Secret recipe outlets in Semenanjung. i wish it would make a comeback.

Visited here by chance as I was staying nearby. Excellent food, well cooked and tasted delicious. Attentive staff who speak fluent English. The cakes are amazing, well worth going just for desert.

We had our hi-tea at the Secret Recipe located inside the Bintang Plaza Mall. The staff was a bit rude even she's a lady. They gather at the edge of the restaurant and chit-chatting without noticing the customer coming in. We asked for a recommendations what was nice and any finger-foods available but was answered in rude voice intonation "Mana... More

We went to Bintang mega mall for shopping, then we have our terrible dinner at this shop. We wait quite long for our food. My mum's vegetarian soba was so oily. And I waited for my fish n chips for 30 minutes, then I asked for the waiter for my order, the waiter does not care about me. And another... More
