Taiping Mali Cafe at Bandar Puteri Puchong

Bandar Puteri Puchong is always not my preference spot for meals as the restaurants in that area are not serving good food but the focus is more in renovation or atmosphere.

I was passing by Bandar Puteri Puchong on 12th November 2010 during lunch time. Without much thought, I decided to have a quick lunch at Taiping Mali Cafe, I do not expect very tasty food to be served by any restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong, a simple meal will do.

Well, the menu left me with not much choice. It was a good sign as you really cannot expect the cook is good in preparing all kind of dishes. And I can bet that those restaurants that served up to 100 types of meals are just buying all the gravy and processed ingredients, while you order, they will opened up the packet from the fridge, heat it up and then put on the plate.

I ordered a plate of petai prawn rice while my friend ordered a plate of soya sauce pork rice. Well, the foods served in less than 3 minutes time (more efficient than fast food giant Mc Donald). The foods were cook and prepared in bulk prior to any ordering. Besides, the size of serving is merely 1/3 of what you can get from the ordinary mixed rice stalls.

In short, the food served by Taiping Mali Cafe is like you are buying a lunch plate from mixed rice stall, but instead of choosing 3 dishes + 1 soup of any combination (approx. MYR 4.00 at mixed rice stall), you only choose one and no soup (approx MYR 2.50 in mixed rice stall but Taiping Mali Cafe is demanding for MYR 8.90 for petai prawn rice and MYR7.90 for soya sauce pork rice) .

How about the quality of food? Does it taste good? The answer is any ordinary mixed rice stall can put Taiping Mali Cafe in their pocket.

Last Sunday I came all the way from Rawang to try Taiping Mali food which was recommeded by my sister. To my horror the 'ASAM LAKSA'taste awful and noodle hard to chew as well!

We felt frustrated over the 'ASAM LAKSA' served and the price is unreasonable. This is my 1st & last visit to this so called 'TAIPING MALI' !!!

Yeah, it is tasteless. The food price is expensive, and the beverage price is way too high (hotel price).

Not only the food quality is bad, the service is the worst I have ever experienced. I was there with my wife and daughter, thiking of having a quick lunch...we sat down, no one came to serve, and finally after few minutes, the menu came, and we called for order, no one entertained us, after 2 calls, we decided to WALK out and 'BAN' this restaurant
