This mainly covers my first post in 2013 and all hail to the new year! More food on the way to our tummy and prayfully nothing, or nowhere is getting any wider or bigger. Muahaha. No, I'm not kidding. *fingers crossed*
Sizzlers Restaurant came to our mind (my mind, specifically) when I browsed through the Groupon website for cheap dirt deals for food and strategically located restaurants (drive-able with GPS and some men driving LOL) and voila, Sizzlers came to an agreement for the other 5 of my friends. Although I had to say that I am a zero clue fella with directions in Damansara area, PLUS with the rest of my friends, but we took the risk and bought it.
Tyng and Andrew went through lots of trouble trying to get hold of the people in charge of the restaurant for a simple booking and according to them, it took more than 10 calls within a three-week period just to hold them down to write down their names and contact number. Which was a sad, sad customer service despite being busy at all times. Taking down a name, date for booking and contact number only requires you to spare less than 5 minutes with your (already) paid customers with a simple courteous decency reply and they can't seem to do it right even making more calls than needed to go to a toilet.
Anyway, to keep that aside and to the food, we managed to get an afternoon, brunch/lunch meet up with all 6 of us, rendezvous at Tyng's house with a two-car convoy. Setting off from Bukit Jalil area to Damansara took us 30-40 minutes, which was well, okay I guess with it saying the first time luck on us that we didn't get lost. Whee!
The groupon deals we took were two sets of 3 main dishes with salad, soup of the day and lasagna. Each groupon deal costs RM39, for three people. Main dishes were open to either pizza or pasta selections.
|Notice their chairs being all fancy dandy. I guess having a luxury furniture store next to this restaurant helps with all the interior deco. Lol|
|I'm half guessing that guy is the big boss. *wink wink*|
|Tastefully decorated with lush decoration and gives the impression of fine dining, walking in to this restaurant gives a warm yet exclusive touch to it.|
|The 3 idiots. :D|
|Outside is adorned with their latest promotions.|
|Since they had a bar inside the restaurant, having outdoor drinking sessions during happy hour is a good thing too, not to mention the place is quiet and rather refreshing after a day's rain.|
|Current promotion. But according to my friend, their ala-carte dishes don't come cheap either.|
|Promotional and menu greetings before you step into the entrance.|
|Each person is served a bowl of mushroom soup, which you can see, watery and tasteless. Pretty much an instant powder mushroom soup with too much of water.|
|Seen here with strawberry milkshake. Tyng said it was fine.|
|The garlic breads are fine too, which I was pleased about. The crunch is there and the flavoring of the garlic is not overpowering. Served hot and from the oven, make sure you savor it when you still see the smoke.|
|We were served first with Margherita Pizza; a combination of chicken ham, peppers, olive, mozzarella cheese and parsley leaves|
|The 2nd pizza we ordered was Hawaiian Pizza, a combination of pineapples, olives, peppers, mozzarella cheese and also parsley leaves.|
|Chicken Lasagna. This looked sad to you, ain't it? The lasagna I made the other day has a better outlook and taste to this. The lasagna sheets were overcooked, too soft, the paste is too watery and you can barely taste any cream sauce in it.|
|The same goes to the Beef Lasagna, the same sad fate both of them have. Everyone agrees with me, except Andrew which he doesn't take beef.|
|Green Curry Pasta! Boy, this is pipping hot!crazy with the green chillies and cili padi. Never attempt a single bite into this if you're not a spicy tolerant person!|
|Carbonara, which looks rather okay but the taste is bad as expected. The thickness of the cream is there but the taste war has lost it big time.|
All in all, I didn't really had a good tasting experience in this restaurant. I'm sorry for being harsh on this but even if its a deal food must not be served blandly as we are the first customers who actually paid FIRST to savor your food. And if you do notice, almost 80% of the food served were garnished with parsley leaves, as if there isn't anything else to serve about to make the food looked presentable. Instead, we felt like throwing so much of the parsley actually made all of the dishes looked boring.
But their decorations of the restaurant does give it a seemingly good, chic place to be. If you're head on around Damansara area, perhaps you can consider their Bolognese Pasta or have a drink or two with your friends.
They have wi-fi but their connection was so terrible that a simple log-in to Facebook felt dreadful.
