4 of us were here for Sunday night dinner, as Yogitree was in the Time Out KL Top 40 under "Vegetarian cafe". Barely anything was right about this place.
The restaurant looked tired with cafeteria style tables and chairs. They practice the "open kitchen" concept but maybe they shouldn't because the kitchen looked messy and dirty - like something you'd see in a street level kopitiam kitchen.
I was with 2 vegetarian people and there was hardly anything on the menu for them (literally breaks down to spaghetti with mushrooms, broccoli soup, hummus, a mushroom tart and a salad). Woot.
The 'organic' broccoli soup came in a glass jar and tasted like lumpy hot water.
The hummus - I swear they forgot to put chickpeas in there, it tasted like bland tahini and the serving was pathetic - it came with 1 cherry tomato cut in half and panfried, with maybe 4 olives out of a jar.
The mascarpone mushroom spaghetti was super bland - I can make it better at home and faster.
The salad was a plate of greens that look like the chef just emptied out one of those pre-salad mixes, put in some chopped black olives and a few pieces of feta and tossed the whole thing in oil. As my friend said "I can make better salad in my sleep".
I ordered a barley water and it was like they had taken "water" literally. It was just water with some barley pearls thrown in for good measure, clearly it had not been brewed properly.
The desserts on menu are far from healthy and not vegan - a lot of chocolate - molten chocolate, chocolate cheesecake, chocolate brownie... very unimaginative and you could probably do better at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf downstairs.
The service was atrocious. There were only 3 other tables and we could not get the attention of the waiter despite my friend waving his hand for 5 minutes. A couple of 'chef's walked out of the kitchen looking right at us, ignored us, and walked out of the restaurant. They walked back in when we were still waving and ignored us. I literally had to shout "hello... HELLO" really loudly before the waiter came to serve us.
The only saving grace was the scoop of black sesame ice cream we had - although it tasted suspiciously a lot like peanuts it was quite good, but not enough to make up for a bad meal.
We had 6 dishes (1 nasi lemak that wasn't finished either, 1 mushroom spaghetti, 2 soups, 1 hummus plate, 1 salad), 2 drinks and 1 scoop of icecream and it came up to RM140. very poor value.
I would NOT recommend this place, especially if you have vegetarian guests, it was a terrible show and a poor reflection on Time Out that they'd even THINK about putting this on the "vegetarian" list. I know Italian restaurants in town that have far more choice for vegetarians than here.
