“coffee break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

the food quality were merely like food for obligation, i don't think the sell food for taste....the presentation is nice and it looked just lie a place to have meeting more than enjoying a local dish that you crave about.

“Simply unbelievable!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

It's simply unbelievable. After we ordered the food, the service staff kept coming back to say the kitchen did not stock up enough ingredients and suggested we accept less than what we should expect eg is it ok to have the kaya bun without the kaya (i am dead serious). So we decided to forgo some and waited for the rest of the items to be served. You will not believe this: we waited for almost an hour only to find out the order sheet did not get to the kitchen. What got us real mad was the indifferent attitude of the manager when we approached her to clarify the matter. The message was this: So? If you are not happy, dont come again.
Well, she's absolutely right!

“Value for money has hit a new LOW”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

The meal reminded me of an airplane dinner. It tasted pretty much the same! It was airplace food for theme park prices. Do yourself a favour and give this a miss. You will be miserable, spend a small fortune and leave feeling hungry and ripped off.

We ordered the fish and chips, since that’s always safe. Wrong! At least I can rest easy that I doubt any fish died to make my meal.
The menu portrayed a decent piece serving, but they should have served the plate with a magnifying glass. The fish was unbelievably over-breaded. Maybe they buy leftover fish slices from other restaurants and rebuild the fish, who knows

They should call this place the Rip-offGarden Restaurant. Never again. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

“Delicious Food at KSL Mall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

On the outside this seemed like a delicious authentic place to eat Malaysian food and it was!

I ordered the Lemonade Jelly Seaweed Ball Drink, Nasi Lemak Chicken, and Herbal Baked Chicken Drumstick Rice, total was $29.25 MYR (cheap!).

All of the food was excellent: very flavourful, fresh, well cooked.

Service was as expected and the location is very convient. I will definitely visit again if I am in KSL mall looking for a full meal.
