I had not heard of white coffee previously and was introduced to the concept in malaysia only. In case you like your coffee strong than this might not be the drink for you. Nevertheless I liked it quite a bit along with a few other drinks and food over here. Sandwiches are super soft and yummy.

Food was good but it seems that the FLIES also wanted to participate. Please do something about getting rid of those flies. Service wise was good, our waitress even took time to explained our combo meals with a smile. Upon her advise we upgraded/add on 2 meals with a combo drink but maintained the other 2 meals ala carte.

Visited the Gurney Plaza branch of this outlet. Went there for drinks and a snack after a few hours of shopping in the mall. We ordered a selection of drinks from coffee to ice kacang as well as the kaya bread. We did not wait long for our order. A nice place to relax and unwind away from the shopping... More

I love this little cafe at Precinct 10. It is quiet, peaceful and very comfortable. Food comes piping hot and it is so good I almost had all the soup as well with the noodles. Service was perfect. Air-conditioning could be a degree cooler then it would be perfect. Fortunately, there were fans spinning. Or else it would be too... More

Lousy service, non attentive staffs!! Publish as open till 12am, but 11pm+ they start preparing to close and turning off the fans outside, it's like chasing customer telling them time to go home. If you're Not up to opening till 12am then don't publish that!!!

On my plate all the ingredients had been put into the curry already and the seafood was 3 pieces of shrimp?! Besides of that the food was... More

A nice place for a talk and chit chat with your love one. I would recommend it's white coffee and kaya butter .. It's taste is awesome and butter melts in the mouth you can't just eat one also try crunchy sugar hainan toast and garlic butter toast . Variety of beverage options available

After being served a coffee/chocolate drink (disgusting) in the mall beneath Tesco's I steered clear of coffee with the exception of popping into a Macdonald's now and again to enjoy a cup of decent coffee. We called into the OTWC, which is outside Komtar Tower, the place is cool inside in comparison to the heat outside. My husband ordered a... More

Nice place to get breakfast if you are staying in the Tune hotel. They do set menus which you can add extras to at a cheaper price than doing it all à la carte. Service has always been good and friendly and special requests were met. We like sitting outside in the shade and watching people going about their daily... More
