Basement of Pavilion. Nice open space. Generally quick service.
Must try Nasi lemak and satay!
Ice kachang if u have space.
Obviously more expensive than hawker but still quite reasonably priced. Plenty of space for children and large groups.

Food was very good. Just as I’d wanted in a visit to KL.
The service was horrible. Got seated right away. As soon as we sat down, they asked us to move. We just sat down a second time, looked at the menu and were again asked to move.
Ok, now at a third table, it doesn’t start off well when the first item ordered was met with a firm “ you can’t have that in a busy night”... ok, good to know.luckly, there’s a lot of goodies on the menu. Ordered an hungry. 20 min later, the appetizers were delivered to table 2. So we wait. After an hour, yes an hour. All the tables around us had been served and we wait. Finally get the attention of the head waiter, tell the story and food is delivered.

It was quite busy... but still no excuses for very poor service. The food was tasty.

Besides the Nasi Bojari and the Nasi Lemak (and occasionally the inconsistent Char Kuey Teow), don't bother with the other one bowl dishes.

Their Prawn Noodles, Curry Noodles, Sar Hor Fun, Chicken Mushroom Noodles, Clear Soup Noodles, Noodles, Soft Shell Crab Glass Noodles - each one completely tasteless. What a shame for such a known establishment to dish up such bland local dishes! Try harder, please.

Service at the BSC outlet is also borderline rude. Always impossible to get their attention, and never a smile on the staff's faces.

It was a great experience; a really good and fast service. Great dishes with lots of options and at a very accesible price. Completely worth it!
