Feels like Tesco
Ikea Malaysia really feels like Tesco. It does not seem to be of high quality and have a very mainstream, mass market feel. There were so many people on a Sunday afternoon. The furniture looks very average. There is not one furniture that is striking or creative. However, the price is pretty high.
I've always heard of the name Ikea being mentioned so I thought it would be a nice place to visit. I was wrong. It's the kind of place where I won't go again after visiting just once because there's nothing pretty or exciting. I remember Xiaxue once raved about finding all the pink stuff she wants at Ikea but Ikea products are very bland-looking to me. Perhaps the furniture at Ikea Singapore looks better.
Great Food and Great Place
Ikea Mall is the ideal place to bring your families if you don't mind the heavy traffic. It is hard to resist the urge to buy something when you're here. Even a simple table lamp seems very attractive while you're there. But do be aware that most of the other items require a certain level of skills to build as not all items are pre-prepared after purchase.
Aside the furnitures and furnishings, they have a really great restaurant that tends to be full most of the time. At low prices, you are able to indulge yourself in food that you'll be able to find at a mid-high class restaurants. Foods like the swedish meatballs and the gravad lax are a must-buy if you're there to eat.
Not only that, if you want to save money, they sell hot dogs for a mere RM2 along with a fist-sized currypuff and ice cream.
Love the cafe
I always head down to IKEA for some easy and cheap furniture to fill up my house. Each trip will always amaze me with their new invention of lamps, home decorations or even kitchen utensils. My favorite part will always and forever be their children's department where everything is so colorful you'll feel like a kid all over again.
However, some items are ridiculously expensive. For a rather plain, simple coffee table, it'll costs you more than RM500. Not worth buying as you can get a better, if not almost the same option at the same exact price. All in all, some items here are worth buying while some are better ignored.
My favorite part is their cafe. Even though the food are always the same, they have never fail to make me astray. I always feel all excited choosing their food and place them in the tray. I simply love how I can experience the whole cafeteria ambiance in IKEA cafe.
The DIY store
Ikea is an awesome place to go if you're looking to renovate your room or refurnish any part of your house. My parents would occasionally go to the Ikea at Damansara KL and I remember staring at shelves so high it looked like they were two stories tall. Everywhere I looked were house hold items that came in all sorts of shapes and sizes. As a child, it was the prefect place to get into mischief and play hide and seek by running around the furniture and jumping on every bed I saw.
The store was very well equipped to cater to any customer's needs. I remember buying a cupboard which was DIY (Do It Yourself). I had a fun time taking it back home and assembling it and I Appreciated the fact that by having to assemble it myself, I saved on major transport costs as compared to buying a cupboard that was already built and painted. If you are interested in adding decorations to your house then IKEA would be your adult Toys'R'Us.
