A Dissatisfied Dinner @ Five Star Restaurant

Last year December, my dear and I visited to this restaurant called "Five Stars Restaurant". It's located at Batu Lanchang, next to the Ong Too Pain Clinic. I heard about this restaurant from an ex-colleague quite some time ago. What I remembered he told me was although the restaurant is named as "Five Star Restaurant", however, the price is reasonable, and the food is delicious. That's why I suggested to my dear to give it a try.

The first word from both of us when we walked out from there was "yaaaakkkkkkk!!!". We were totally dissatisfied with the food served. The food servings were really small. We found the price was over-charged based on the serving size. Take a look at the photos below, and I'm sure you'll nod your head.


Asparagus stir fried in sambal belacan cost for RM8. Quantity so less only and the belacan taste is not nice. The other day I bought a big bunch of fresh asparagus from Jusco, 500gms just cost for RM5 something. I tried to cook the same dish using 250gms of asparagus and it tasted much more better. With the huge serving, and the delicious taste, I would say I can cook better than the chef in this Five Star Restaurant. ^^


This dish is called Indonesian prawns. We were so surprise when we saw they served this dish on a plate coz all the previous curry that we took in other restaurants were served in a big bowl with lots of appetizing curry broth. These 5 prawns in so little broth cost for RM15. Pricey, isn't it?


Hot plate Japanese tofu, cost for RM6. I guess they just used up half tube of the Japanese tofu, which you can get at less than RM1 per tube. Furthermore, there's no egg included, and of course no fragrant smell lar...


The belacan fried chicken cost for RM7. I just manage to finish 1 small piece of it. It's hard and not tasty at all.

Dare you visit the restaurant?
