Similar to James Foo and others, here's another western foot place that..
- tastes terrible.. fry this fry that.. slap on some canned/powdered gravy.. frozen fries and sad salad.. some pieces of tomato...

sigh... the steaks? don't even bother. It's the usual "don't know what cut is this" meat, pounded with a mallet to "tenderize" it... thin as a pancake.. sorry excuse for a steak. No difference from James Foo and the other pretenders.

Sorry, no thank you.

It's a goid place for department team lunch with affordable western food with lots of selection. One setback is that the restroom is outside of restaurant, not convenient during rainy day.

Recently tried out the restaurant with the Groupon voucher. Parking: May be a problem at peak hour on working day. Suggestion: to park at the Maybank building on Lebuh Union or the car park across Lebuh Pantai. Service: Average to poor depending on which waiter. One of them a Chinese took the extra mile to entertain our special request but the other just disappeared after passing us the menu book. Decoration: retro, jazz style with interesting old record display but the place is not well-maintained with spider web and dust collecting on some of the items. Food: overall it is good and tasty. Potion: just nice, enough to satisfy your hunger but not make your overwhelmed. The lamb chop with mint sauce is particularly good, so as the salmon steak. But the sea-food spegatti is particularly disappointing. A check with the price showed that each dish costs around RM 18++ which is reasonable. We went in the afternoon after the peak lunch hour. The overall experience is good. I believe the atmosphere will be nicer with the lights and music in the evening.

+ve points : Been to this restaurant few times. The service is OK, they served reasonably priced food with equally tasty food.
Wide selection of menu but would recommend to add some vegetarian selection(pie/fried rice/noodle) so my vegetarian friends can have something other than just french fries.
Especially fond of the unplugged live band & the cosy environment. A good place for family/gathering. A place suitable from 5-75 years old :)

-ve points : No tissue in rest rooms, not convenience (on rainy day) for shared-restroom that located outside the restaurant.
