“A windowless foodcourt on top a spectacular mountain”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Only in Malaysia would they build a huge foodcourt on top of a huge mountain with cool mountain air and not put in one window. You sit in a cramped, dirty, tired concrete bunker and in reality you could be in a basement shopping centre. It defies logic, good taste and economics not to have this food court with spectacular large windows to take in the view looking over the entire city of KL and the mountain range. Still, customers eat here as the only alternative are expensive restaurants or junk food stands.
The food varieties in this Food Court are lacklustre, the usual slops but with an expensive price.
The service is slow too. All the staff are not put to best practise. They all stand around the counters with queues of people waiting. One staff serves and the others stare and look aimless. My tip is to take a lunch from home and sit outside on a park bench to take in the cool air and views.

“'2 star' food court”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

This food court looks quite worn down, dull, nothing extraordinary but nonetheless quite packed during meal hours (Caution: beware of the low hanging TV to the right near the entrance). Quite a number of stalls there including one selling vegetarian cuisine. It's expensive though but expected it. The strange thing is that the only stall there selling beverages don't sell hot drinks, only cold one...ironic!!

“Huge food court with indoor theme park”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Its huge with indoor theme park... but the options are mostly Malay food, fast food like Marybrowns, Mc, Burger king etc. There are many restaurants but I felt the food variety is quiet limited. If you aren't a fussy eater then you can get something for yourself but if you are a fussy eater like my daughter then u have to live on fast food chains - pizza hut, mc , burger king or kfc.
They have 1 thai restaurant which is ok !! but japanese option is modified..so don't think about trying it. If you stick more to Malay and Chinese food then u will get many options. I guess !! I small indian outlet too..For vegetarian it can be a problem - esp. if you are Jain Indian.
We only had our lunch in there once during playing indoor theme park. Our 2 dinners was in Seafood village (Theme park hotel chinese restaurant) which is surely recommended if you love seafood or from South Asia countries.
