First time at his place and we were pleasantly surprised by the entourage and the variety of the menu. We ordered a Hoegaarden and a Carlsberg draft beer and decided to share a Carcisosia pizza, which tasted excellent with real ham, which is quite unique in Malaysia, at least in our opinion. Certainly a place to return to. Visited: 3... More

The staffs are friendly but One thing that trigger my patience is when I was about to enter the restaurant the manager was so rude that he scolded his waitress why I entered the place. I think this manager forget about the saying "Customer is always right and if you won't value us someone else will". Your appetite will be... More

This is a cracking little restaurant in the heart of a busy mall, that offers a la carte dining along with a different set lunchtime menu during the week. The service was excellent, polite friendly approachable and efficient. The food superb, this little restaurant has got it so right.

This restaurant is located on the ground floor, closer to the old wing of 1 Utama shopping mall. You won't miss it because it is opposite TGI Friday's and along the same row as PapaRich, Yi Shun (vegetarian restaurant) & Canton-i. Set lunches are available (affordable meals) but we did not order the set lunches because we had a celebration.... More

Whenever I am here, I will order their crispy pork salad, it still remains my all time favorite. Dined here with family and we ordered some food to share. The seafood soup was good. The pasta was a bit watery. The half slab pork rib is ok but could be better if more moist. The service was really slow and... More

Its great when eateries offer lunchtime promos to entice the office crowd. Dave's Deli offers a 30% discount on weekdays from 12-3pm on their standard menu. All in all, they have a wide selection for their menu and their food is above average considering the pricing. Its mostly western recipes that boasts of wholesome home made goodness. Don't go with...

Their lunch menu here is a good value for your money, 2 plates, dessert and a drink for a set price. The pizza I tried was just average, but the dessert was good and the other entrees looked like better options.

It doesn't matter how your customers wear (one utama is between residential areas, people may not dress very arrogantly), professionalism of waiters to serve all your customers EQUAL should be present. If we can walk into the shop means we were able to pay. So please respect. I find the waiters were proud and inattentive. Rather not fairly treating customers... More

Dave's Bistro Bar & Grill at 1 Utama first opened its doors 10 years ago with a philosophy to create beautiful food filled with passion and integrity, synergizing our Asian roots with traditional French and Italian cooking techniques. There is also an English/ French styled full service bar with a lush green garden alfresco area for customers to chill and relax; a haven from the hustle and bustle of a shopping mall.We serve a variety of pizzas, pastas, pork offerings. Must tries include our signature Ham & Mayo Pizza, Spaghetti with Udang Galah, Pork Ribs, Crispy Pork Knuckle, Suckling Piglet, Braised Belly of Pork and most recently The Sandwich that was judged as the Best in the World. So come eat, drink, dance and indulge.
