When I saw that one of my top Malaysian restaurants had a space in the Victoria Gardens Foodcourt I was pretty excited, and it helped that the food looked good in the windows too. However, in the end some of the food picks on offer are of less quality than others, and I seem to have a knack for picking them and subsequently forgetting which ones they were the next time I’m there. I’ve been a few times as I frequent the mall due to my complicated love-hate relationship with IKEA.
The fried rice, stir-fry chicken and vegetables, beef and black bean is fair but the honey chicken is a notable significant disappointment. Rather than pieces of meat you get a ball of flour with occasional chunks of chicken, and the batter isn’t crispy at all. Quantity is fine. The beef rendang was too tough and dry, making for one of those rare occasions where donutsam doesn’t finish his dish. I’d totally recommend sticking to their Flemington store, which still has some lustre in my books despite this experience.
