“Poor service, unreasonable price FOR a food court ”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

In my honest opinion, after it has been renovated the service has gone bad and prices for the food and drinks have gone up. The waiters and waitresses are foreigners in their teens and spend more time joking around loudly. The management should really look into their staffs' dress codes and manners.

I would only go here for drinks, although there are nicer coffee shops on lower floors. I find that the food here is pricey, for a food court. Again, better food + reasonable price elsewhere.

“Retro theme food court”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

This is one of the old shopping mall food court in KK which has been renovated few years back with a retro theme. Generally, we go there for lunch or afternoon snack. The venue is kept really clean compare to Centerpoint and you will not get the stuffy feel to the environment.

If you are keen to try, do ask for a hot "cham" (mix tea with coffee).

The Chinese vegetarian stall serves interesting fake meat (tofu or gluten based). You just choose any dish from the smorgasbord. Alternatively there is another stall selling Chinese smorgasbord dishes. The food court does serve your average roast meat such as duck, chicken and pork. They do need to get more different cuisines into the food court.

For Malay or Indonesian cuisines, they are just nearby another entrance of the food court.

There is a Korean cafe hidden in the same shopping mall too but not many people know.
