Had the jasmine tofu, and also ordered curry noodles, and instead got curried vegetables. Since it was busy and I had waited a long time to receive my food I didn't bother sending it back or anything. The tofu itself was good on that dish, but the veggies were from one of those frozen 3-packs of carrots, corn and peas, plus some undercooked onions and a bit of lettuce. Strangely, fresh carrot slices in the curry dish (it stands out when one of your dishes has fresh carrots, the other frozen), as well as all the other veg. Veggies cooked properly and the dish reasonably priced, though it sort of tasted like a store-bought pre-prepared curry sauce. As mentioned by others, you probably won't get a smile from anyone working there. I thought it odd that basically all the drinks (aside from beer) are 5 ringgit, which is far too much for a cup of tea or some options. No sign of karaoke, and I think there was only one foreign couple, all of the other tables were filled with Chinese-speaking customers, which does make it a little strange as the place is decked out in orange and with banners like it's a home base for the Dutch World Cup team.

Something so simple yet so important - coffee

If a cafe can't even get this right, it shouldn't be doing anything else, like...food? I had some pretty bad coffee in local stalls that cost RM1.50, they are using 3 in 1 ready made stuff. But those are STALLS, not CAFES. They are charging RM1.50, NOT RM5 for a cup!

This 'cafe' is not just an expensive place, but it's a place that cheats people. There are better places nearby to have dinner, just don't come here.

We had the chicken sausage, smoked duck, jasmine tauhu, mushroom omelette, a shot of vodka and strawberry juice. The sausage and omelette was so so. Tauhu was nice. The duck was tender and succulent. Our meal cost RM 82. There is a booklet on the history of Cameron on sale here, priced at RM 10.

Went here because of good reviews, service was good, prices relatively high. One review said the smoked duck was great so I gave that a try, quite possibly the blandest bit of duck I've ever tasted. Disappointed.

We have returned to this restaurant a couple of times because of the strawberry juice that they served. The Chinese dishes don't really meet our expectation. Nice atmosphere but staff are not friendly.
