“Great deal for Wolf Blass Wine!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We had our family and cousin dinner in Mr Ho's Fine Food, we didn't book our table, we were considered as lucky, we have 6 of us, the restaurant was crowded and fully reserved upstairs, but yet we still managed to get a table at downstairs which behind the stairs, the temperature was quite warm in the restaurant. The staff was welcoming us in the front door with friendly smile.

The staff promoted their wine promotions, which is Rm90 per bottle, (Wolf Blass). We ordered a bottle of chardonnay, taste not bad. They should add more tap beer, they serve paulaner white, guinness, kilkenny and tiger only.

Their smoked duck breast and baby ribs are nice but portion quite small. Lamb burger is nice but quite dry,more cheese and sauce will be better.

Staffs are attentive, they are keep on checking if we need anymore drinks. One more thing, the notice board/special menu board should not placed there, or should place it higher on the wall because it is blocked by the timber handrail.

The xmas dinner menu is available for reservation now, in my opinion, the price is overpriced. Definitely can get more good quality food with that price in KK.

“Excellent roast pork”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Went in for lunch in a party of 4 - no doubt their signature roast pork was excellent with wonderful crunch to the skin n perfect layers of fat and meat, though stayed clear of the fat. Sausages dish very good too. Pork satay great but meat could be made more tender using different cut - peanut sauce (well to the chef lay off powdered spices) could be improved. Lastly, pricing !!! haa---haaa---haaa-- kinda pricey. Service was good. One of very few 'SERVE PORK SPECIALLY' fine food joint.

“Pork dishes are good”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

A new restaurant. Nice atmosphere upstairs, air conditioned. Good Menu selection. A little pricey by KK standards. Pork dishes are good.

“NO RETURN!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Went with empty stomach, ordered their signature roasted pork, sinfully with more than 50% left over ... not my taste.

Deeply disappointed with the service and the management. The waitress who took our orders indicated that beer is at happy hour price then we pointed at "strongbow" and asked the price as the menu indicated RM16-90 for normal hour and she replied happy hour is at "RM11-00". So we ordered 2 strongbow.

When the bill came, we were charged RM16-90 for each bottle of strongbow. So we get the waitress to check the order as it should be happy hour price. After checking, the waitress informed that happy hour price is only for draft beer but not bottle. We then explained to the waitress that we ordered happy hour strongbow, be it bottle or draft, her colleague did not mention nor explain.

Then came another waiter repeated the same story that no happy hour price for bottle beer, we then repeated again it is their problem that they served bottle as we ask for the happy hour beer.

Then came the waitress who took our order, repeated again that bottle is at normal price and claimed that she did explain only draft is at happy hour price, which she DID NOT and refused to refund!

Then came the fourth person, perhaps the manager of the restaurant, repeated the same story for the fourth time that there's no happy hours price for bottle beer. They were really testing my patience that I had to repeat the explanation for 4 times to 4 persons. Told him to settle their own problem, we dont want to repeat anymore and get us refund, however he still claimed that they have no problem. We seriously felt cheated! And the dishonest waitress twisted her words!

Anyhow, we were firmed enough to get the refund in the end, but no apology were made by any of the staff for their mistakes and the unpleasant experience of customers.
