Market Hall, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

The Market Hall in Pavillion is a concept eatery with an open kitchen, wooden block tables and shelves with dried food items. While many people liked the décor, I didn’t think too much of it. Service was a bit of a downer as the staff were busy chatting among themselves to bother taking down our orders.

Desserts on display

Breadsticks with salsa

The complimentary breadsticks were made using pizza dough and served with salsa. I didn’t care much for this – the bread was thin and crispy, but I prefer soft rolls and salted butter anytime. The detox juice I tried was called Energy Booster (RM12.50) and it comprised fresh ginger, lemon juice, carrot and apple. Unless you’re a fan of ginger, you probably wouldn’t like this.

Energy Booster and Honeydew Juice

Spicy Clams

rif and I had a starter of Spicy Clam (RM24.90) to share after spotting the couple a few doors away tucking into it heartily. The clams, tossed in white wine, garlic and chilli made a lovely starter. I couldn’t stop sipping the broth – sweet, spicy and savoury at once – and the clams were fresh and meaty. I almost ordered another serving.


Smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese, capers, fresh dill and baby spinach pizza

I didn’t like the Smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese, capers, fresh dill and baby spinach pizza (RM34.90). There was too much crust and the topping was quite scant – the whole thing tasted dry. For RM34.90, I didn’t think the ingredients were justified.

Lamb Balti Pie

Lamb Balti Pie (RM28.90) sounded like a more interesting choice compared to the tagliatelle pasta and it wasn’t too bad in taste. I fished out several large chunks of Moroccan spiced lamb under the fluffy rice pilaf. The puff pastry helped seal in the flavour and aroma of the ingredients and kept the lamb pieces tender.

Sneak peak inside...

We skip desserts because we didn’t fancy any on display that night. Dinner wasn’t expensive, but it wasn’t cheap either. For the prices we were paying, portions could have been more generous. That said, smaller eaters will find the portion sufficient.

Ambiance: 6/10
Price: 5/10
Food: 5.5/10 (pork free)
Verdict: I found the food decent, but not memorable. That said, I wouldn’t mind having the spicy clams again.

      You can be good friends with rif already. He loves the pizza there too. Every time also drag me there to eat….lol!

  2. ooo, looks like there’s a slice of avocado on every piece of the pizza. but yeah, the remainder of the pizza looks a bit too bare. i think i’d eat the toppings and abandon the crust =)

  5. This place was great the first time we tried it – attentive staff and delicious food – some pumkiny ravioli dish was amazing if i recall correctly. The second time was a bit hit and miss with the food and service. Sounds like they still don’t have it altogether yet.

    i agree with you…speaking from a general experience. some restaurants really have poor service especially the part when they are chatting amongst themselves and let the food get cold… they need to be alert and management / supervisor need to give more encouragement to them by training development & monitor the flow. really sick of “tidak apa” attitude by service staffs… to let them let loose on the floor, customers will no return to the restaurant if service is bad.
