Should We Ban this restaurant?

There's this Kopitiam from Bangi opening up a branch in Seksyen 7 Shah Alam. Another venue for us to have lunch, I thought. We checked it out just now.

The ambiance:
Not bad. With oldies decor (there're too many restaurant with such theme). Cooling, but the chair was too small that I felt like my buns were hanging down to the side. No, I don't have huge butt like.. like.. erm.. never mind.

The price:
Prices for food are reasonable. but the drinks are a bit pricey. A glass of ice-water is charged 80 cents, while others ranged from RM2 to RM5.

The taste:
We ordered nasi putih ayam masak merah. The chicken tasted like cinnamon rolls, with little resemblance of the normal ayam masak merah. Out of three, none of us think it tasted good. In fact, it tasted weird.

As for the drink, I was the only one ordered hot lemon tea, the ladies ordered plain water with ice. The lemon tea was blunt. I order HOT lemon tea, but they served it in a tall glass. How was I suppose to hold the glass to drink?? 
I asked the waitress to change the glass into a mug. The answer was, "sorry cik, kita takde mug." Duuuhhh??? The glass was so hot that I got to wait untill it cooled down before i can drink.

The services:
Erm... no comment. They hired foreign workers who don't really understand what we want. "Dik, kita nak drumstick."... the girls went blank. " Peha, nak PEHA AYAM!"... baru dia faham.

The verdict:
One thing I dislike about the decor, there's this huge mural depicting friends gathering for a drink in the sixties. What's wrong with the mural? EVERYONE in the photo was holding a cigarette (Smoking) regardless of gender. Takde gambar yang lebih elok ke?? I'm not trying to down-grade smokers, but having such mural in a restaurant just kill my appetite.

The burung kakak tua wanted to ban this restaurant. They dislike this place. While I thought they deserve a second chance.

What do you think?

budleee said...

Owh Bangi Kopitiam..

Yah, they sucked..

I went in the bangi branch. My first time was okay, but after that quality went down the drain. I liked the deco actually, they had the same picture at the Bangi branch. Wow you have a good eye, josh, I did not noticed they work holding a ciggarate. But I do agree its a classic picture, and not an ad to start smoking..

but yeah... go figure, you would thought that a second branch would mean they are much more capable, but judging from this entry.. they haven't figured out a single thing..

Josh said...

[Catz] Yes, it's the Bangi Kopitiam. Katne kat Bangi Josh taktau sebab tak pernah gi situ. And for the review of that kopitiam ada kat comment Budlee. BAANNNN!

[Bud]Thanks for the info Bud. Didn't know its the same in Bangi. Aiyaa... why like that one, dah takde standard nak lagi open up branches. cis..

kak ja said...

Josh said...

[Kak Ja] OK Kak! Jelingan Maut Josh bagi. Hahaha... kalo ada nurse cun kat situ, Josh bagi jelingan manja kottt...
