Located on a busy road and with plastic chairs I didn't have very high expectations, but I would recommend the place. I.e. Prices are very low for the food they serve

I came across this restaurant while driving from Menumbuk. It's just before the PETRONAS pump station, on the left side of the road if coming from Menumbuk. It shares entrance with a car wash garage so parking was ample. Read about it from other Trip Advisor reviewers who highly recommended this restaurant. It is an open air restaurant, clean, with...

In addition we learned a lot about the other local foods and sampled other local dishes in addition to those we cooked. We wild thoroughly recommend the cooking school at... More

I ate here upon the recommendation of my Sabah friend. Food was good, but would be better if they can use higher grade rice. The dishes that are highly recommended are their beef cooked with soya and pepper, and their ayam masak guli ( if I remember correctly). Their dessert like red velvet cake is thumbs up. Check it out... More

Thank you taking time to review D'Soka Restaurant. Thank you also to your friend who recommended us. I believe the beef you tried was Daging Hitam Manis marinated with soy sauce fried n cooked again with spices that similar with rendang. Also the chicken you said guli I would guess it is Chicken Liku. I have taken note on the... More
