Thankfully a refreshing change to what we had been eating since we arrived in KK. We ordered 5 different dishes and Everything was super tasty! Kids loved the lasagne and quesadillas. Great service, good quality food! Would definitely recommend!

This little place is super basic but it is always full of people and in my book of restaurants these 2 things indicate a great little place to eat.
The Goulash would be acceptable in a Michelin Star restaurant in Budapest. The basic table and chairs and crockery don't do the standard of food any justice, but the price you pay is also too little for the tastiness of the food.
Worth a visit if you don't want to risk the local restaurants (where there is no English translations).

We came here on our first night not wanting to play travel sickness roulette with the market stalls so early on in the trip. This restaurant is a good choice if you are looking for somewhere chilled that you can eat some familiar favourites.

The food is not as cheap as eating locally would be but it is still affordable and yummy. A light meal would be about 20-30 MYR (£4-£6) a 3 course meal would be around 40-50 MYR (£8-10). I can highly recommend the vegetarian tortilla!

Service was quick as the restaurant was not very busy at all (which also meant that there was a lack of atmosphere). The kitchen closed at about half 9 in the evening, so make sure you don't get there too late.

Chilli Vanilla is located on one of KK's main roads, opposite the Wisma Mederka shopping mall. WIFI is available.

Thanks to reviews on trip-advisor rating this as the place to go for a good western-style gluten free meal we decided to check it out. Was filling, tasty and a great change from the buffets we'd been eating for a week.

Many thanks.
