“A great fusion restaurant”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

This restaurant was very near to my hotel the ParkRoyal in the Bukit Bintang district, so I thought I'd give it a try. A very well thought out menu listed a good number of "fusion" dishes. In many places this does not always work, but here it worked perfectly. I tried 3 different combinations during my week's stay here, and was not disappointed. Service was rather slow on my first visit, but the place was crowded. Still a bit slow on the other visits when it was quieter. An impressive beer menu - bottled beer from no fewer than 8 beer-loving countries! Sadly, no draft beer was available. The prices were reasonable in this part of KL, and the staff were all young and enthusiastic.

“Our local cafe, good variety and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

In our first month living in KL this became our favourite local cafe where we could have a thirst quenching ice crush drink and a choice of a snack, light meal or full blown extravaganza. 2 ice crushes and two rice or noodle dishes will cost about Rm50. Try the apple crush ice blended drink. It has real red apple bits in it and is perfect after a hot day.

After our 3rd visit, the staff remembered us and we always had the same table and excellent service.

“Excellent food slow staff”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

After a hop on and off tour we were hungry and decided for U Cafe asian delight fusion cuisine. We had so e fries and Vietnameze springrolls. Very tasty........i ordered a juice cocktail what arrived first instead the carlsberg beer my hubby ordered. Staff is really slowly. Second beer took ages as well. While we had our main we got the bill and acthally wanted an other drink and dessert.
Brought wrong dessert and than nearly on wrong table. Jumbo banana yummy........

“Service and main course let it down”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon U Cafe and thought it looked nice enough. The menu made the food look fantastic, but don't be deceived!

I ordered the squid tempura for starters and my boyfriend had the popcorn chicken, both were nice and actually displayed pretty well. However, they took my starter to a different table and left it there for a couple of minutes before bringing it to me and they tried to bring Chris' main out before he'd even had his starter (?!) When we said he ordered a starter our waiter went to check but actually left the main course on the table as if we were just meant to leave it there going cold till he'd finished his starter! Which eventually came. He took it back to the kitchen after we questioned it but as soon as he cleared our starter plates he asked if we were ready for our mains. We said yes as we didn't expect them to literally come out 2 seconds later.. Both dishes had obviously been sat there a while as well as they were only lukewarm. Neither looked ANYTHING like the pictures either, I know dishes don't normally look exactly the same but they looked pretty pathetic compared. My seafood pasta which boasted big juicy scallops in the menu had one puny one on the side. Chris's teriyaki chicken was drowned in teriyaki sauce but apart from that had no other flavour. Very disappointing as this could be a great place if had better waiting staff and the food looked a bit more like that in the menu.

“Disappointing from start to finish ”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

My friend and I had just arrived in KL and spotted this place which looks really nice from outside. We headed straight in and got totally ignored, walked all the way to the counter to ask for a table and were told to sit anywhere. A waiter brought over some menus and then didn't come back until we called them to take our order. We ordered our food and 2 bottles of water and a bottle of wine... We got one bottle of water and a glass of wine, we corrected them and 5 minutes later back came the same glass of wine! By this point we were considering leaving as we'd been there 15-20 mins and still didn't have drinks!
Our food arrived and looked disappointing, but still no bottle of wine! We asked one more time for it and finally it arrived. After about 15 more minutes the waiters started stacking up chairs around us and brought over our bill before we asked for it. They were then all sat on tables waiting for us to leave, when we stood up one of them made a cheering noise, they all got up to clear our table and walked right passed us - not one of them said thank you or goodbye!
Food was below average and service is shockingly poor. Such a disappointing place, with potential if they had better staff.
