O'Coffee Club @ Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

Located in 1 Mont Kiara Mall is another restaurant called O'Coffee Club. This outlet is located on the Ground Floor of the mall and can be easily spotted once you are inside. This is actually a gourmet franchise outlet from Singapore and has two branches in Malaysia. The first one is in 1 Mont Kiara Mall and the other is in Fahrenheit 88.

Outside Seating on the other End
This restaurant has a huge dining space within the air conditioned mall but as I do smoke, I preferred to be seated outside. The outside seating is rather small with just two tables. Mostly their staffs would be seen having their meals here. This restaurant has a wide variety of different cuisines and the pricing is usually on the high side and the portions are rather huge too. I would not say that I am a great fan of this restaurant but as I was walking past today, I spotted their Set Lunches which seemed like value for money and that drew me to this restaurant today. 

Their Lunch Sets

Their lunch sets is only available for weekdays and that too between 1200 to 1500. They have two options to choose from, Western and Asian. The Western Set comes with a choice of either BBQ Chicken or Classic Chicken and is served with a choice of Mushroom, BBQ or Black Pepper Sauce. Above that, it also comes with a choice of Buttered Rice or Mashed Potato's. The Asian Set comes with a choice of Nyonya Chicken Curry or Lemongrass Chicken Curry and is served with Buttered Rice and Acar Rampai. Both sets comes with a glass of Ice Tea.  The Western Set is priced at RM 16.90 and the Asian Set is priced at RM 12.90 .

Ice Tea
Their Ice Tea was just quite basic and unsweetened. Of course sugar is provided and you could sweeten it to your preference. I found this to be just okay and would rate this at 7/10 .

BBQ Chicken with Mashed Potato's

BBQ Chicken
I went for the Western Set and chose the above BBQ Chicken with Mashed Potato's and the sauce of preference was the BBQ Sauce. The portion size was decent for the price paid but the taste let me down. I am not saying that it was bad, but it just was not good. The Chicken was rather hard too and the sauce was overly sweet and there seemed to be an overall flaw with the taste. It just did not hit the right notes on my palate. I would rate this dish at 5/10 . 

I have dined in this restaurant before and had been faced with the similar kind of dissatisfaction. For a while, that had been the reason as to why I had not returned here. After about a year, I am trying their food again and found it to be no different than what it was which is rather disappointing. They should definitely work on improving their dishes.

  1. Yup, tried it last week. RM28++ for small portion of chicken. RM17++ for 2 prawns and meehoon. Overpriced like hell. And taste nothing special. Original in Singapore much much better.

    1. I would definitely agree with you on this. The prices here are exorbitant and the taste is nowhere near decent. Definitely the one in Singapore is way better.
