In Colonial Restaurant @ The Intermark Kuala Lumpur

A few weeks back, I had the opportunity to dine at a rather new restaurant located inside The Intermark Kuala Lumpur, serving some nice halal chinese cuisine. The look and feel of the restaurant itself reminded me of the old British colonial times, hence the name In Colonial Restaurant. Check out below on some of the food we had that evening.

In Colonial Restaurant has this colonial feel to the whole place, hence I was a tad surprised when I saw their menu, which comprises of halal chinese cuisine. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the food, in fact it tasted way better than some chinese restaurants I have been to recently. Reaching the restaurant just in time for dinner, we were greeted warmly by the staffs and ushered to our table for our meal. They do have private rooms as well to cater for larger families or business functions.


#1 Beef Sandwich - RM28

In Colonial's Beef Sandwich was served on a plate, freshly prepared and cut for our enjoyment. It's pretty light, considering it's beef, and the cut portions seem about right to be shared by two person. The dish was just the opener, whetting our appetite for more to come. 

#2 Baked Butter Prawns - RM82

Up next is In Colonial's signature dish, the very yummy looking Baked Butter Prawns. Cooked and baked in it's own special sauce with an aromatic butter taste, the prawns were large enough to satisfy even the most particular diner. I like how fresh the prawns were, as it translates to a sweet taste. 

#3 Steamed Portuguese Fish - RM42

Fish lovers will love the Steamed Portuguese Fish, as the dish came with these boneless fish fillets drenched in a sweet and sourish spicy sauce. It was a special blend of sweet and sour fish, with some ladies fingers placed on top for good measures. Again with steamed seafood dishes, the most important bit would be to use really fresh ingredients, and I'm glad to note here at In Colonial Restaurant, their seafood are really quite fresh without the fishy taste. 

Stir fried Rib Eye with Vegetables
#4 Stir fried Rib Eye with Vegetables - RM58

Ah, the Stir fried Rib Eye with Vegetables would be my favourite dish of the night. Imagine tender rib eye beef, being stir fried with black sauce, and pepper, with lots of onions and these fragrant vegetables. I find it tantalizing, and really delicious as the beef was really tender, being rib eye and all. This dish is a must order in my books. 


#5 Seafood Duos - RM26
#5 Seafood Duos - RM26

The Seafood Duos dish consists of prawns and squids served piping hot and sizzling in the pan. It had a really fragrant smell and taste to it, but the portion was a tad smaller than the other dishes hence it just wasn't enough for us there that night! Good stuff too, with just enough spiciness, and lots of sweet savoury taste to the fresh seafood ingredients inside. 


#6 Butter Chicken - RM30

Even the tried and tested Butter Chicken taste better when being whipped up by the chef at In Colonial Restaurant. Nothing can go wrong with this dish, with the chicken being deep fried first before being drenched in savoury flavourful butter sauce. Served with some healthy broccoli on the sides, I guess the vegetables were meant to justify the sinful pleasures and calories count of this dish. 


#7 Cheesy Spring Roll - RM16
#7 Cheesy Spring Roll - RM16

The Cheesy Spring Roll can be thought of as finger food should one still be hungry after a heavy meal, or treated as a meal in itself for those on a diet. It's basically deep fried spring roll, with fresh vegetables and lots of cheese inside. I do like this a lot, and it's no wonder this dish is one of the signature dish at In Colonial as well. Crispy on the outside, crunchy and cheesy on the inside, let it melt inside your mouth.

Overall it was a very nice dinner over at In Colonial Restaurant at The Intermark Kuala Lumpur. I can understand a lot of effort was put in by the chef in the food, as it shows in the taste and quality of the dishes being served to us. Serving only halal offerings, do drop by this restaurant should you be in the vicinity.

  1. One prawn RM82!!!!!! * faints* Here, can get how many kilos... I thought "colonial", they'd serve western or typically English cuisine.

    1. Good day Friend, RM 82 is still worth it as the restaurant did not state as seasonal pricing. Some other places which serves big prawns, can cost easily more than a hundred ringgit. Once you tasted the prawns, you will know the value and most importantly, you will be satisfied. Do try out the peppercorn oysters which will melt in your mouth. cheers

    1. In Colonial offers good set menu under 123 Lunch Delights and the price ranges from RM 22 onwards up to rM 38 and it is worthwhile, eating under a comfortable atmosphere.
