Dragon View Restaurant Review

Dragon View Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur

We only went here as it was pouring rain and we jumped out of a taxi and walked straight into this restaurant. It is located conveniently at the end of the restaurant strip on Jalan Alor. This place looked inviting and clean, is busy, but the food is nothing special and the service wooden. The food is overpriced, you are much better off heading just next door or any one of the many places along the road actually. On the menu is a mix of Chinese/Cantonese dishes, Malay dishes and other Asian styles.

On arrival there is a small bowl of peanuts on the table, presumably complimentary. You wont find out that they are not until you get the bill and find you have been charged RM3 if you have eaten them. You are not told there is a charge for the peanuts, so be wary.

Other Things You Should Know

  • the restaurant is located on the corner of Jalan Alor and Jalan Changkat Bukit Bintang, underneath the View Hotel

Coliseum Cafe Review

Coliseum Café and Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Coliseum Café and Hotel is a  historical landmark in Kuala Lumpur. We went for a evening drink and sat beneath the fans on a balmy night and felt like we had been transported back in time. It is well worth a visit to experience what Kuala Lumpur may have been like when the British colonial days. There was plenty of action in the cafe part so we assume that the food is OK too.

Other Things You Should Know

  • The Coliseum Café and Hotel was a favourite haunt of William Somerset Maugham during his stay in British Malaya
  • The hotel and cafe are located behind the famous Coliseum theatre, just down the road.
  • open until late
