Chili’s, 1 Utama

After we were done shopping, rif took me to Chili’s for dinner. Yeah…I know we just had our tea break at Kluang a while ago. (shy shy) There was already a line outside the restaurant even though it was only 7pm. Lucky thing we didn’t have to wait that long to be seated.
Bowl of Beef Queso (RM 11.95)

We started off with the bowl of beef queso. It’s basically tostada chips with salsa and cheesy beef dip. The chips and salsa are refillable. :)

Mushroon Burger (RM 22.95)Cross-section of the burger

rif’s mushroom burger done medium rare was juicy, thick and tender. The melted cheese and mushrooms made the meat patty even more delightful to eat. This isn’t always the case in Chili’s as they are often inconsistent when grilling their meat. (often overcooked till it’s tough and chewy…even their chicken)

Lamb Shank (RM 32.95)

I was quite disappointed with my lamb shank. I don’t see why the waiter “highly recommended” it. It wasn’t well prepared resulting in the gamey lamb smell which I despise. The gravy provided was quite mild so it couldn’t mask the unpleasant smell. I liked the mash potatoes; slightly chunky with bits of potato skin in it.


We didn’t order any desserts as rif wanted to try Paddington House Of Pancakes. Dinner came up to RM 86.02 inclusive of tax and service charge. Quite a pleasant experience minus that mediocre-tasting lamb shank.

Ambiance: 6.5/10
Price: 7/10
Taste: 7/10
Verdict: Above average food with decent pricing. Try their burgers medium rare and don’t stinge on toppings. They make a whole lot of difference.
