I had heard many different rumors and all sorts of feedback from friends and family who have thronged this place before. While it is conveniently situated in one of the biggest malls in Kuala Lumpur, I find that it doesn't really stand out as there is nothing that attracts the eye of people passing by. The overall experience was mediocre at best as even though staff were friendly despite the many diners that were in at that time, unfortunately the food was not tasty enough to warrant me eating there again. It was a shame because I saw many different kinds of food in the menu which should have made it stand out among other restaurants.
A few times I saw that there were long queues at Vivo during promotions. I can’t help but think that it was not worth it to queue for so long just to eat at that place and I was right even though I have not tried Vivo when I saw those queues.
On normal days when there were no promotions, I ate at Vivo twice. My friend recommended me the spaghetti so I ordered it and could not finish it as it wasn’t good at all.
I went Vivo the second time with my mum and I tried the chicken with butter rice. I do not like butter rice and requested for normal rice which unfortunately they did not have. The food was edible but seriously, even I can cook much better than that.
Bad experiences galore
I first came here in 2009...or was it 2010? I can't remember exactly but I do remember going to Vivo at the The Curve with a couple of friends. The first thing I noticed was that the waiter seemed a bit...funny. And no, not ha-ha funny but...an odd character. I suspected that the waiter was an SPM leaver. The waiter seemed to not understand English so well. I had an easier time conversing with a mamak at Pelita Nasi Kandar.
But wait, there's more. My friends and I decided to order the pepperoni deluxe pizza to save money. Our food came about an hour later which I found to be really long, even for a pizza. Even Domino's could make the pizza and reach my house within 30 minutes. The pizza was only decent at most which pales in comparison to even Pizza Hut which is getting worse every year.
Now this is a place I won't be coming back, ever.
I decided to try Vivo after getting tired of the same restaurants and since I never had dinner here, so why not I check it out altogether.
The whole atmosphere when I first walked in here was boring. Everything is just so plain and too bright, with white walls and white furniture. Maybe it's their concept but I never find dominating whites are appealing.
Further on to their menu, okay this is basically an American restaurant with American food. So you can expect the whole pizza, pasta, chicken and the likes. The menu booklet looks like it was created for kids. I find it amusing and later on bored looking at the photos of the food.
Honestly, the food is below than average. Nothing much, you're better off with some other restaurants. Price is quite high to compare with the quality of food. That was my first and last visit to Vivo.
An Average American Eatery
In my experience of three different branches of Vivo (Curve, TCM & TimeSquare), Vivo is a decent eatery which offers decent food, depending on what you order. If you have nowhere else to eat but Vivo, then I'll recommend the baked cheese fish fillet pasta (forgot the exact name) and deep-fried seafood assortment (the one with deep fried fish and scallop).
I never like scallop until I tried the one here- it's big, crisply fried and yummy. The price here isn't soaring high but it's not cheap either, and I wouldn't really recommend this place unless you're looking for a decent place to fill your tummy,
Not so great
Get to try Vivo when I was in Berjaya Times Square. We ordered spaghetti and pizza for our dinner. In additional to that we have deep fried scallop as finger food. The pizza is average, nothing much to shout about. Spaghetti taste good but nothing really stands out. The only bright side of the dinner is the deep fried scallop. It was offered to us at discount price which I think they are trying to promote their deep fried scallop. It is about size of old 50 cents coin, crispy outside while still juicy inside. That all I can say and we never went for Vivo since that day.
Bad first impression.
My first visit to Vivo left a bad aftertaste in my mouth.
Me and a friend decided to go there for lunch and I ordered the mini pizza set for myself while my friend ordered the cheese baked rice.
My pizza came first so I went ahead to try it. First it lacked cheese. Second the portion of toppings were pathetic. Thirdly the dough was hard and dry.
The cheese baked rice was no better, there’s only a thin layer of cheese and the top quarter of the rice was red but upon closer inspection the bottom ¾ is plain white rice.
The white rice was the last straw for me, I'm never going back again.
