This is actually a review for the Maria's Cafe in Ipoh, which is the original outlet (the PJ one came later). Strangely the Ipoh one does not have its own listing under Ipoh.
Maria's Cafe has been in Ipoh for around a decade. It has had some ups and downs but the management has now placed more priority in re-establishing its excellence. Our group of 9 went there for dinner and we had a very nice meal on the overall. Maria's prides itself on the steaks and justifiably so. We ordered a Wagyu 5, the ribeye and a black angus. All were good quality and done perfectly. It was my first time trying Wagyu steak and I can now understand the fuss about it - tender, flavorful and tasty. Others had the lamb shank, which they also gave thumbs up to.
The desserts were also similarly nice. We had the tiramisu, carrot walnut cake and moist chocolate cake.
Given the quality of the food, the price is reasonable and I would certainly return!
