Kunyah Cafe Wangsa Walk

The other day I was at Wangsa Walk Mall to catch a movie, and since I was already running late, crashed in at this cafe located just next to TGV Wangsa Walk to have a quick dinner. The cafe's called Kunyah Cafe, "kunyah" meaning chewing. So if we were to do a direct translation, it would translate to "Chewy" Cafe.

Kunyah Kafe Wangsa Walk

Anyway I sat down, to be greeted by a very sleepy and blurred looking waitress. And by blur, i mean I literally had to repeat my sentence 3 times for her to understand what I wanted to order. If would have been okay if she was polite, which she wasn't. I only wanted the Nasi Ayam. My first impression of the cafe went down pretty quickly, coupled with the fact that the chicken had to take a further 20 minutes to prepare. 20 minutes, and there were only 3 tables of customers that night.

Old School Menu

I took the Kunyah Chicken Rice

From the menu, Kunyah Chicken Rice was touted to be their bestseller, with a tagline of "Guaranteed to make your taste buds sing!" Now that's a new thing to me, I just couldn't wait to get my taste buds sing the karaoke!

My Teh Ais - RM 2.80

Kunyah Chicken Rice - RM 8.90

I was rather surprised when the meal came. After waiting for like 20 minutes for them to prepare my chicken, the waitress served me this rather plain looking nasi ayam dish. Upon tasting it, I felt rather cheated off my RM8.90. The chicken tasted bland, and had to be "sauced" thoroughly with the black sauce. Don't get me started on the rice.

From the front

Well, that's that. I won't be elaborating much more on this cafe as to me it was rather disappointing. To think that I gave it a go that night because it was the nearest food shop to the cinema. I pointed out to the lady at the cashier about her staffs but she doesn't even seem to bother about my displeasure.

Oopss & Ouch! Didn't look any good that I see from your review :)

Isaac Tan said...

Eli: Ya lo, I was hesitating whether to post about it. The pictures were in my PC for quite some time, but since I already took the pictures, might as well do a post on it. Food reviews may not always be good right? Hehehe

Isaac Tan said...

STP, true, i won't go back there anymore. Actually this isn't the first eatery next to TGV wangsa walk cinema that let me down. The other 3 cafe's beside the cinema have really lousy food and service. I wonder how does the mall manage their shops.

Isaac Tan said...

Nava, I second that. The only thing not going up are our salaries.

Isaac Tan said...

Kumfye, yea bro! Hawker stall will be cheaper, fresher, and definately tastier! Haha.

Will drop by your site. :)

Isaac Tan said...

Bendan, there will still be ppl going because its so near the cinema! sigh, sometimes we dont have much of a choice especially if rushing for a movie.

Isaac Tan said...

Hi Alice! Do you live nearby Wangsa Walk? I didn't have much of a choice that night because I was late for the movie, and needed to get a bite. :)

Thanks for dropping by! Really appreciate it.

Isaac Tan said...

Well looks like you gotta sing in the rain so that no one can see your tears. Why it took them 20 mins to chop the chicken or waiting for the rice or the chicken to cook?
