Coliseum Cafe @ Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Coliseum Cafe has been one of my all time favourite Western restaurants. I have been patronising this restaurant for more than 40 years now. Initially, it has been their outlet along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and of late, the other two outlets located in Jaya 33 and Gardens Mall. It has been a while that we visited them, should be at least a year now and after the sabbatical, we're back here this afternoon for lunch.

This particular outlet is located in Jaya 33, Petaling Jaya and parking is convenient. They have both indoor and outdoor seating areas as well. The theme across all their restaurant are the same and it is great that they are maintaining the classic ambiance. Their menu has surely been growing and the prices getting higher, but if they maintain the same authentic taste, then it is surely worth it. Service is and has always been excellent here and the waiters are really professional. Since were knew exactly what we wanted, the ordering process was a breeze for us. 

Coca Cola @ RM 4.50

Mushroom Soup @ RM 10.90

We had ordered Coca Cola and they came in these tall glasses. Each was priced at RM 4.50 . It seems like the one from the tall 1.5 L bottles but they were good and the gas was intact. We had also ordered some Mushroom Soup for starters and these were priced at RM 10.90 each. The soup was awesome and it came with a bun. A mix of ground mushrooms were used to make the soup and not the off the shelf Campbells Soup. Taste wise, it had remained consistent over the years and my rating for this shall be 9/10. Their bun however should have been heated up and this one that was served was cold. That was a setback that we encountered this trip. I believe that they should rectify this and return to how it has been always served before. 


Wedges & Veggies

Fried Anchovies @ RM 12.90
All of us went for the Sizzling New Zealand Lamb Chop Set which was priced at RM 52.90 . In this set, you get the above Salad as well as Wedges and Veggies. Both were good and my rating for them shall be 9/10. Another one of our favourites here is the Fried Anchovies. I find the preparation here to be really good. The price is now RM 12.90 and we found the portion to be decent. Preparation was good and again, this too deserves a rating of 9/10. Do note that this is a spicy dish and comes with lot's of bird eye chillies. 

Sizzling New Zealand Lamb Chops

Four Large Cuts In A Hotplate
It wasn't too long and the chops were served. The cuts were as big as they usually are and they were served in the same piping hot sizzling style. The meat was nicely done. However, the sauces slacked. It was not close to what it had used to be. Seriously, I found it difficult to have it on it's own and had to go for the Lingham Sauce which isn't my usual practice here. This was a let down as I used to totally love the Chops here. If I were rate this dish, my rating would be 6/10 only. 

Our Bill
Coliseum Cafe has been one of my favourite Western restaurants for a very long time. Their service levels are excellent and we are glad that it has remained consistently so. All the sides were great, absolutely loved them. However, our mains, the Sizzling New Zealand Lamb Chops were a let down. The cuts were lovely and they were nicely done. However, the sauce was just not quite there, thus bringing the whole dish down with it. I do hope that they improve on this flaw and return to the quality that they had always been known for.
