“Cosy environment for Beer and Food”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

New Owner - same as Chez Papa (ranked first on trip advisor)! Has good selections of Beers, cosy environment, good service, great smiles, and I love the smoked salmon and smoked chicken. Tastes just different from all others smoked food I had before! Thumbs up for fruit punch also. Guess what? Now they serve French Oysters - only for limited period.

“Nice starter. Baaaaaddd main course.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Well I'm sitting here right now. 10.44pm 05.10.2012. We had prawns and mushroom soup for starter. Portion was good. It was tasty. Or main course we had fettucini with chicken, cream sauce. The fettuccini was hard and not cooked properly. Overall bad!! And the other main course chicken milano with salad and fries. Instead of fries I requested mash potato. My god!! That was the worse mash I have ever tried. The salad was basic and simple but nice. Chicken was salty!! Overall very bad. By the way management has changed sine last April it seems. It was maybe worse than this before.

“A new life”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

O'reilly's was recently bought over by Shareen Muller and her husband, the owners of Chez Papa. I was invited over for beef and wine tasting. The couple didn't change the outside much but they overhauled the kitchen. Had a great evening and met plenty of amazing people.

We had waygu, new zealand and chinese beef with red wines from a variety of places. Service was excellent. We were educated about whatever was being served. The staffs were warm and friendly not to mention pretty attractive. :> The food was high quality. Letting the ingredients speak for themselves instead of mucking around showed confidence at the kitchen. Almost forgot to mention the unforgettable nachos!

Give it a shot. You deserve to be pampered by people who are passionate about food.

“Not for the locals!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

On its opening I was invited, first thing as I requested, they saiud there arent smoking areas, I was with few friends who smoes, they said sit at the back which was like a garage area and so warm or sit outside, which had only 2 tables and was also humid. I was told by the staff the mat salleh owner does not smoke and does not like smoking and his friends also are non smokers, great to him and his business and mat salleh gang, then dont open a Pub in Malaysia if its only for the caucasians.I can understand a 40/60 ruling as allowed in Malaysia or at least be friendly and explain well, unfortunately the owners seems arrogant iof the employees were informed such and not trained to answer to such daily request.

“This restaurant deserve a better ranking than the current 13th place!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The food here is great! Have been here several times and their service - excellent. Occasionally they have wagyu beef on their 'today's special' menu and that's a must try.

A bit pricey but worth the taste, portion and service. There are only a handful of good restaurants here in JB and this is one of the good ones. This is the only good one within this area, the rest are nearer to city centre. Owned by the same owner of Chez Papa, he still occasionally greets customers and is interested to know your feedback.

I've always been there for dinner and ample of free parking lots.
