Bongsen & Chinoz On The Park, Suria KLCC

Dinner time at Kuala Lumpur City Center again. Not my choice but since someone else offered to treat …

Ninny meeny minny .. Bongsen. 3 out of 4 of us (Incredulously including me who have salivate over pictures posted by fellow floggers) have not eaten here. 2 have not even heard nor noticed this place though they are regulars at Madam Kwan’s and House of Sundanese which are nearby. Maybe the proprietors should enhance the look of its entrance or exterior? Flashing running neon lights or something? =P

Service was excellent. Well, we were the only ones there. To be fair, the only dinner companion who had been there sang praises for the service during crowder lunch times too. Difference would be the attention showered by 2 dedicated staff who either stood nearby or swing by very often.

Coconut
Apple Celery Juice
Those circled on the menu were what we had.Oh, and a most umexpected order - Curry Laksa. In a Vietnamese restaurant! @.@Was treated to:-Location:-

End of a satisfactory dinner. Drinks, anyone? Unfortunately, we went for it downstairs. It had to be al-fresco as friends smoked. Chose a table, sat down and started scrolling down drinks menu. Had to wait quite a while before orders were taken.

Vesper Martini. In the drinks menu, it is decribed as 'The James Bond classic from Casino Royale - gin, vodka + vermouth. Asked friend how it tasted he retorted, 'Like how it looks.'

A pot of Chamomile Tea to have with honey and another pot (not shown here) held Earl Grey. This you can ‘ka-sui’ (continuously add hot water) to your heart’s content.However, over here, waving down a waiter to do the task will wane your heart’s desire.

Hot Chocolate. My drink. Was looking forward to the presentation after reading this:-It arrived looking like this.Yes, it was most unfortunate we went for drinks downstairs ..

Grouchily paid:-Where we were:- Ground Floor facing the fountain (which maintenance seems slack lately), Suria KLCC

ai ya, i wanted to ask the same question too... is it value for money??

Sze said...

damn that's pricey for hot chocolate. though having said that i did once way rm30 for hot chocolate in a belgian cafe in tokyo. very good though...

big boys oven & new kid on the blog, expected Bongsen pricing to be a bit on the premium so no complains. As for Chinoz, price is also expected to be on the high side but the presentation and the lack of service, it's disgraceful!

sze, if it came like it was described in menu, I would be happy but this is so not worth it.
