The Terrace is one of those places in Malaysia that looks really expensive and seems to be a place to obtain great food. But let me tell you ladies & gentleman, looks can be deceiving and this place is great example of it. I often walk pass The Terrace as I tend to go through Royale Bintang as a shortcut to The Curve.
And one day, my mother wanted to try the place so I decided to tag along. I didn't know what to order so I had the chicken maryland as the waiter had suggested. I find really odd for it to have banana fritters on the meal but that was the only good thing about it. It was soggy, tasteless and a bit cold. Not worth the money at all.
It was my first time walking out the buffet without filling my stomach and feeling I have eaten at all. I went there with my school society as one of our annual dinner. Before making the decision of going to that restaurant, we called up and asked about the food. The person said it serves 30-40 types of food including pastas, cakes and grilled food. We though it was okay so we set the location there.
On that night, a few of us walked around the restaurant and went back to the table with one question, "What to eat?" It's not because there are too many choices but rather too little until it seems like there is nothing for us. No pastas to be found but only some poorly-fried fried rice. The grills are limited and refilled too slow. Some stations that offer local food has no one positioned there to cook for us. Is the restaurant expecting self-service and self-cooking since it's a buffet? Some desserts were too sweet that makes one feel like he will have diabetes after eating it. Some food tasted very weird with a slight sour taste, as if it had been placed there for too long until it turned bad. The only food that tasted good is bread pudding. Did I mention that it serves 20 types (or less) of food only?
The service there is not good as well. More politeness from staff will be much more appreciated. The staff take so long to refill our glass when there were only a few tables seated with customers.
This is my worst buffet experience. If you're thinking of walking in to this restaurant, I will advice you to think twice as you won't want to regret wasting your money there.
