The place was packed to the brim when we came. We managed to get a table after a short wait. Service was fast and excellent and so was the food. The walls were mostly wood panelling to represent a New Orleans house or Bubba Gump shrimp boat and decorated with memorabilia from the movie. Food and drinks were themed on the movie too. The TV screen constantly showed the movie full length. We had an enjoyable evening and chatted with one of the waiter who gave us an interesting history of the restaurant.
In Forrest Gump's words. "My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."
Excellent food and service is what we got.

A very homely restaurant with a great atmosphere, friendly waiters and a constant reruns of Forrest Gump. The meals are a bit on the expensive side but it is offset by the large portion. Love how you call the waiter - using aluminum car plates. A must try is Shrimper's heaven. Enjoy!

I loved the movie Forrest Gump and was surprised to see this restaurant that is inspired from the movie in KL. They had a mock up of the bench that Forrest sat on in the movie, and nice touches like menu that is secured on a table tennis bat.

What really surprised me was that the food was really good! We had shrimps (of course!), fish, and lobster tail. They were most delicious. What was even more surprising was how well they did their vegetables. We ordered steamed broccoli and a pear and berry salad. They were awesome!!

Great food whether you are a fan of the movie or not. Highly recommended!

Nice interior. Staff were friendly. Ordered Yin Yang Shrimp Salad, Bubba's Far Out Dip and Chips, and Shrimper's Net Catch. Food was not bad, I quite like the Yin Yang Shrimp Salad, especially the dressing.

I been to the bubba gump in US and the food there was good. So when I saw this shop here, I decided to give it a try. The food is not as good compare with the one in US and there is not much choice also. If good to give a try if want to refresh the memory on the movie on forest gump.
