Review: Kim Gary Restaurant


We were at Sungai Wang Plaza (SWP) one evening, can't recall why but these days there are hardly any good food outlets here. Anyway Capt'n Hook decided to find a place to have dinner here before heading home. I guess the safest bet is to have something familiar and that we have tried before and taddaaaa it's Kim Gary Restaurant hahahaha... wow I still remember my ex-colleague, Jas, was raving to us about this restaurant when it first opened in Malaysia and it was located in SWP!

It has been quite a number of years since we last step into a Kim Gary Restaurant which has sinced mushroomed all over Malaysia. The outlet in SWP had undergone a renovation. Seems to be still popular amongst youngsters. Flipping through the thick menu, the contents are a far cry from those days. There are loads of choices and of late, there's even Western food like sizzling steaks!

As usual Capt'n Hook stick to his Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop (RM17.90 per set) and he opted for the set that came with a soup, a drink which he chose Honey Lemon and a dessert. Not sure what's with these HK style restaurants, they served the dessert first even before our drinks arrived!!! We took one bite each and decided to leave it alone as it's really bland... not sure what kinda pudding is this.

Set drink and dessert

There's soup which nothing to shout about. The baked rice took a while to arrive and it's quite standard. A layer of browned melted cheese over chicken chop served with fried rice. I guess really value for money.

As for myself, I tried something named Honey Pomelo Tea (RM3.90) and what I've gotten is actually Korean Honey Citron Tea.

I picked one of the smaller portion of food on the menu which is Macau Pork Chop Burger (RM6.90). Not authentic Macau Pork Bun as the pork chop has a film of sauce coating it with some mayonnaise and tomato and cucumber slices. At least this burger is juicy and tasty, best of all I could finish it up.

There are Service Charge 10% and Government Tax 5% but we have Jusco card which entitled to 5% discount. Our total bill came up to RM31.45.

Used to love Kim Gary but nowadays I find tt their food quality has dropped... and the service very consistently sucks.. lol.

Oh well... it's still priced well so good value for money. :)

I know it's not so appealing to some folks (looks pointedly at my friends) but I will always love Kim Gary for their mushroom rice and various meat toppings. It's simple, guilt-free comfort food lah... :)

their food's standard was better in the past! Once in a while, Jenn & I would go for HK style restaurant.. be it Kim Gary, Wong Kok, Chatterbox or someplace else...
Kim Gary's best dish is still the stir fried spaghetti IMHO!

I'm sure your boy loves this place right?

Someone once told me that Kim Gary serves the best food in the world. He was all but 7 years old. haha

Will be my choice if really can't think what to eat :P

kim gary is overrated...usually if i went to sungai wang and wanted to have HK food...i'll just go to u-village...cheaper price, better food, better service and away from the hustle bustle outside kim gary

Sean said...

gosh, i've only visited the kim gary outlet at midvalley, but that was maybe 4/5 years ago! i recalled the food seemed OK, but not very healthy, heheh :D

Babe_KL said...

J, which is why it is still attracting youngsters

Kenny, LOL you can go with Capt'n Hook or my Boiboi

Leo, I never tried that before, ok I noted now

Jon, my BoiBoi love cheese so you know the gist :p

ChoiYen is like Capt'n Hook!

Shyan :p I shall reserve my rights not to speak of our bad experience there

Sean, but did you notice it's quite pack hehe unhealthy food tends to attract customers by the droves

J2Kfm said...

Erm, yeah I share your views too. SWP has NO good eateries. Not even the few noodle shops around. Oh maybe should have tried the Zang Toi cafe.

Babe_KL said...

J2Kfm, can walk over to LowYat actually but sometimes just too lazy

Seldom go to Kim Gary nowdays but I like their French Toast and yin yong.
