“Kota Bharu's popular Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013

pubs where fellow travellers can meet and mingle are few, and this is one of them. never mind its name, its a pub! head down there, right in downtown city centre, for a cold pint.

food is ok... try their pizzas, wonderful!

“Awesome Environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

If you've been to Kota Bharu, you'd know what it's like here and how it's a little bit hard to find good places to eat or go for some drinks (booze I mean). Well, I discovered this neat little place. My friend told me it was an Irish Pub but really it was like a little bistro I think. Anyway, they served up some really good food. Their pastas are not bad and their Turkish Pizza was just so yummy. And their version of Pigs in a blanket, well they have the chicken version called Chics in Blanket which is really not bad. Very crispy bacon cooked to perfection. They've got a limited selection on the beers but despite the limit, they've got a neat selection like Kilkenny and Paulaner. They have draft beers too (what Irish place doesn't? :P) Overall, they have a really nice environment and the ambience was really nice. Dim lights. They have good service and very friendly staff. They also have happy hours too. Overall, the price was reasonable ;)

“Friendly service good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

We were there for happy hour drinks. Beers served here in fact the place has more of the atmosphere of s bar rather than a restaurant. Small tiger $8 in happy hour which ends at 8 pm. Menu varied but not extensive. Reasonably priced Malay, Chinese and western dishes. Friendly efficient Service.

“A great find in an otherwise depressing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Kota Bharu is not my favorite place in the world. One of the other reviewers called Golden City and oasis correctly. In a relatively unattractive city of not much to do, it's a bit of heaven. Cold beer, attractive ambience, and good food (western and asian) brightened an otherwise humdrum stay.

“Lovely little oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

Stayed in Kota Bharu a few days and dropped in for a few tiger beers to beat the heat a couple of times. Nice place. Happy hour 4-8pm for beer. 2 x 600ml tigers for 30rm. Decent enough food although portions a little small. Was always busy in the evenings. An alright people watching spot. Enjoy.
