I read a review of this place in the newspapers not too long ago and decided to give it a try. Initially, I had a bit of problem locating the place as it’s tucked away in a quieter road of the Kota Kemuning town centre.
The restaurant was rather quiet. The 1st dish – Laksa Nyonya (RM7) was disappointing. The laksa gravy was just lukewarm, which is a no-no for me. I had to get them to reheat it and when it came back the 2nd time, it was hotter, but the noodles and vegetable garnishings were limp.
The Lamb Chops (RM21.90) fared a bit better. Although the lamb was kinda dry, the sauce was interesting and made up for it. There were chopped tomatoes and parsley in the sauce. As we ordered the set meal, it came with Mushroom Soup and 1 small piece of garlic bread. Nothing special about the soup – tasted like it came from a can and they could have done better with the tiny slice of baguette. I don’t think it would have hurt their costing much if they had served a bigger slice of the toast and it would definitely have added more value, in the customers’ eyes.
Their recommendation of Otak-otak (RM5) came served plainly. It tasted very mediocre and there wasn’t any daun kadok in it – which is the core ingredient in a good otak-otak!
