Can't fault Manja at all - it is excellent. Great menu choices, excellent atmosphere, excellent staff.
The food is meant to share and all the dishes we had were deeelicious and beautifully presented.
It is one of KL's great dining experiences.

Attractive environment, delicious food and pleasant music. Everything is so great until after our dinner, three of our parties having diarrhea and vomiting on the next day. I suspect that having the Taiping Duck have spoiled. It's was quite good but I hope Manja will make more improvements on it.

Dear May,
We are so sorry to hear about your experience at Manja. We take this kind of thing very seriously. We adhere to very strict food quality standards, and this has never happened before. Perhaps it was the unfamiliar spices or the chilli in the dish that caused the issue? We would appreciate very much if you would give us a contact number or perhaps more details about your visit.

We actually ended up going to this place as Bijan Restaurant was fully booked. Fate was definitely on our side and we certainly did not regret our visit to Manja.

We just turned up at their door without a booking but they kindly found a place for us to eat. It can be a little disconcerting if a restaurant can easily find room for you but there was nothing to worry about in this case. In fact the restaurant quickly filled up during our visit.

We chose the prawn, hamburger sliders and chicken wings as our appetisers. OMG the truffle hamburger sliders deserve a restaurant of its own. Although a little wet with seeping juices, they were tasty, delicious, heavenly meat patties. The truffle make the whole dish luxurious.

For mains we had the lamb, steak and cod. No complaints about any of them. The roasted potato cubes were perfectly cooked. Crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

Quite an expensive bill (MYR 1,000) but we did also have two bottle of red wine and a dessert to share. However, it really was worth it.

Can I also say a big thank you to the wonderful staff. Polite, attentive, not overly fussy, and very knowledgeable about all of the dishes on the menu.

Food was delicious. The servers are well trained and knows the menu well. The cocktails are equally good, so do give it a try! I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
