Gurney Drive@ The Gardens

We wanted to try this place few months back ever since it's opened the door for business at The Gardens. However, we didn't - - always tempted to go back to Little Penang Cafe @ Midvalley. No doubt,the food at Little Penang is good!!!
This time round, since there is a bigger crowd, ok, we thought of giving a try!
Hmm...it was not a pleasant experience. First thing first, the place has "down-sized"..lots of items not available. We also noticed, they have revised the price -obviously lower as compared to earlier -to attract patrons.
I ordered the so called Kampung Malabar Char Kuey Teow -RM8.80+


Taste ok, but the cockles were super not fresh. Prawns were at edible stage but not pleasing to eat....

Since we expected authentic Penang food...this was a big disappointment.
Check this out - the nasi lemak bf ordered - no comparison to Little Penang Cafe...side dishes were lousy to the core - fish was super fishy, chicken curry were so watery and tasteless...assam prawns were not that fresh!



Overall an unforgettable lousy dining experience.....highly NOT recommended to try!
If quality of food doesn't improve in near future...I don't think this place can sustained. Life is cruel....only those excels will sustain in this age of tough competition!!!

The dishes don't look good at all. I will give this place a miss. Thanks.

opps, I always think that if you want to try hawkers' food, should not take them in the mall. I believe the food by the roadside would be much more authentic. :)
