The busiest pub on the street the staff were so welcoming when we walked past we had to go in for a drink and ended up staying for a few.

A nice mixture of locals and expats we got involved in their weekly pub quiz and after winning one of the rounds were awarded a bucket of 5 bottles of Bud! Great fun and an all round good place to quench your thirst.

First things first, the waiting staff were very friendly, spoke better english than some, and appeared to be very easy to get on with. Waited on us hand and foot, which we found uncomfortable, but this seems to be common of waiting staff both here and in Thailand so well give them a by ball.

Next on to the beer, you'll pay at least 25rm for a pint of beer, and that quickly goes up to 37 isn. With the current exchange rate thats about £5-7.20 a pint. KL is very expensive for drink.

Next the food, now this is why its just average. I got a steak and guiness pie, it came in a frying pan, but was no more than some chewy beef and carrot gravy with a pastry naan on top, not a pie or anything that really came close to one. The potato portion was tiny, and instead of coming with veg or cabbage it came with a it of lettuce. I guess they have never been to Ireland. My wife ordered the chicken tortilla which tasted like cardboard. Im sorry to say all in all don't go there for the food, especially not those two dishes anyway. Its been the worst food we've had in KL so far

Hi Craig,
Thank you for your review. I appreciate your compliments on our staff.
We are famous for our food, contrary to what your review suggests. I am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your meal, I have never heard another such complaint about those dishes and CERTAINLY no complaint about portion size in Healy Mac's.
This bar is 100% Irish owned, I come from the Wild West of Mayo and am the owner of this bar.
Our beer may not be very cheap but it is of high quality. Try going somewhere else where they serve cheap (watered) beer, I'm sure the food will be to your standard there too.

Dropped in with the family for a quick and early dinner, happy to have a few Tiger beers at happy hour prices and then enjoyed a very, very good Pepperoni pizza at incredible value. My 4yo enjoyed the garlic bread and her sides, service was very efficient and very friendly. I could have stayed for longer.....
