My bro bought this coupon from WEBUY quite some time ago and today we finally had the time to go for it . So, my brother, mummy and I had our dinner in this .. Inviting looking cafe in Sunway Pyramid .
The coupon states that we would have 50% off the bill . 1 main course, 1 seaweed tofu with soup and 1 dessert for ONLY RM22.50. My bro bought 3 . Each for mum, me and himself.
As usual, I would check foursquare and read the tips left by foursquare users . OH MY , the amount of nasty tips.. Bad service, salty food, desserts too sweet .. Endless complaints ! Naturally, I got pretty unsure about the restaurant.
Anyway, we went in anyway, sat down and the waitress came with the menus. As we presented the vouchers, everything seemed fine , she took the coupon and the menu back and took a good 5 minute look at the coupon before presenting us a piece of photocopied paper which was the supposed menu for the voucher. I got quite annoyed at the fact that we couldn’t order our main course first and then think through what desserts we would like. She insisted, and slightly raising her voice to emphasis the fact that we HAVE to order it first as she wants to put it into the computer first. (I mean, CAN’T YOU KEEP THE PAPER, AND FILL IT IN LATER, THEN PUT IT IN THE COMP, BEFORE YOU PRESENT US THE BILL?)
SERVICE . Oh my god . I felt like strangling them SO BAD . The tiny waitress was loud . Fine . Acceptable, it’s alright . But gosh, she can’t stop flirting with her male colleague . Vice versa, whatever ! Another guy, would just irritate the hell out of me by repeatedly beating onto the furniture . Sayang, if you wanna be a drummer, please go to drum classes. Don’t do it in a restaurant . It’s SO ANNOYING AND DEFINITELY AIN’T PLEASANT TO LISTEN TO . And, oh my goodness , they couldn’t stop yelling ‘WOO!’ ‘OOOI’ for God knows what reason . They’re so, so childish . They kept playing pranks and joking around with each other while working . They passed the bill book by THROWING from 1 waiter to another . OMG . IF SHE DIDN’T CATCH IT .. It’s gonna hit the customer . AND THEN BOOM . DRAMA-RAMA !
Be friendly , fine . Be a lil’ playful fine . NOT CRAZILY NAUGHTY AND RUDE .
Okay, sorry ’bout that long ass complaint .. Moving on !
Chicken Teriyaki Mayo (RM18.90)
Can’t deny the fact that they use really good mayo ..
Chicken Katsu Special (RM16.90)
I’m not sure what’s so special about this, really . It’s just Katsu . And rice. And half an egg, salad and 2 pieces of watermelon . Sooooo special . Really .
Chicken Curry Special (RM18.90)
Chef’s Choice ?? Really?
Shiratama Kurian (RM13)
Sesame Sundae (RM15)
Supreme Zenzai (RM17.90)
Summing up all the desserts – not my kinda thing . Maybe it’s yours , I don’t know .
In total, the whole bill would be about RM100 bucks without tax. With 50% off, it would be about RM60 max with tax. With the vouchers, we paid about RM68.70. WITH THEIR TERIBBLE SERVICE, IT’S SUPER DUPER NOT WORTH OUR TIME .
Besides, they had such confusing different kinds of sets, for me to calculate everything (Yeh, being prejudice and only calculating for this particular restaurant) , it would take me 10 frustrating minutes , which I totally do not want to waste .

Anyway, last Sunday afternoon, mum and I went to Wok Cafe at 26, PJU5/21, Kota Damansara. They serve authentic Nyona food and local food as well. Their staff are friendly and efficient. The walls of the restaurant are covered with antiques and old-fashioned wooden doors and walls! Its like back in the Shi Huang Ti time!
So I was testing.. Experimenting. Haha. How does this look? O_o
