Sizzlers @ Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur

Earlier today, I had to meet some friends in Damansara Heights and as it was already 7 pm, we decided to find a place for dinner. That is when I came across this restaurant called Sizzlers which is located right beside Peninsula Hotel in Damansara Heights. From the outside, the restaurant seems pretty posh. They even have free parking available for diners, otherwise one would have to pay a flat fee of RM 5.00 for parking.

Indoor Seating Area
The restaurant is very easy to sight and is clearly visible from Jalan Semantan heading up to Damansara Heights. Once we arrived here, we were greeted by the waiters and ushered to our table. This restaurant has both an indoor and outdoor seating area. The indoor area has a great design to it. The dim lighting and high back Roman chairs definitely gives a fine dining experience to this place. When we arrived, there were a few customers but it did not seem like the place was getting a great response.

The Menu

This is what we ordered

The Menu
The menu was quite extensive but mostly around Western Food and Pizzas. Most of their dishes comes in hot plates thus clarifying the restaurants name 'Sizzlers' .We decided to go for the Sizzling Combo for 2 set which includes a platter of various meats, soup and garlic bread. It did have some steak and we requested for it to be changed to Lamb which they accommodated. This dish is priced at RM 89.90 .

Hot Tea With Milk @ RM 3.50
This tea is very interesting. When I was there I could not see clearly as the lights were dim but when I came back and looked at the photo, I was deeply surprised. Could you see how dirty the cup is? I wonder if it was ever washed properly. Even the tea itself was quite bad. Considering both these factors i.e. taste and cleanliness, I would rate this at 0/10 . Absolutely unacceptable!!!

Iced Honey Lemon @ RM 4.50
Angie ordered the above Iced Honey Lemon drink. It was just so so only. I would rate this at 5/10 .

Garlic Bread
Now meal time. This Garlic Bread is part of the set and is included in the price. The Garlic Bread was above average and generally okay. The bread was not hard and the spread was decent. I would rate this at 7.5/10 .

Cream of Chicken Soup
This Cream of Chicken Soup was the soup of the day and it was extremely horrible. Very watery and you could not taste anything there except for an occasional chunk of chicken. This is by far the worst Chicken Soup I have had in my life. It does not even pass to be called Chicken Soup. It scores a horrible rating of 0/10 .

The Platter @ RM 89.90

Better Look At The Platter
This was the main dish and it came in a hot sizzling plate. It had two huge chunks of Lamb, 1 slice of Chicken Breast and a foot long Chicken Sausage. Besides this, there was also some baked potatoes, onions and carrots beneath the meat. They shared a common sauce which I could not identify what it was but it tasted nice. It was slightly on the sweet side but blended well with the dish. Firstly the lamb. It was above average. The good thing about the lamb was that the sizes were really thick and huge but with that said, it was a little undercooked. I would rate the lamb at 7.5/10 .The Chicken was perfect. In fact it was really good. Soft, tender and juicy is what I would call it. I would rate the chicken at 9.5/10 . The sausage was nice too. I would rate the sausage at 8.5/10 . The vegetables went very well with the sauce provided. One area that can be improved here is to grill the meat with the sauce and not pour the sauce in front of the customer just before being served. By doing this, the sauces can be absorbed better into the meat specifically the lamb. Overall a great dish. 

On the whole, this place does serve good food but I cannot tolerate the tea cup cleanliness and the chicken soup. Both of those deserve to be poured down the drains. However, the grilled items were good. The staffs attentiveness and service levels were also good. The place had a great ambiance to it. If only those few areas can be corrected, I am sure that this place would pick up. I do not think the price is expensive and in fact it is acceptable specially for this area. I truly hope that someone from the management reads this entry and makes sure that those mistakes are not repeated. Our bill today came to RM 96.90 .
