Village Park, Damansara Uptown

I read a lot of promising reviews about Village Park, Damansara Uptown but never got around to trying it (despite working nearby). Hence I decided to see what the fuss was all about for lunch today. At 12.15pm, the place was packed with people.As it was my first time here, I stuck to the dish with the most recommendations – Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng and Iced Special White Coffee. Shum had the Nasi Dagang set and Kedondong juice & sour plum (RM2.50). The coffee was quite fragrant, though not as fragrant as Pappa Kopitiam’s. I didn’t try Shum’s drink, but she said it was nice. Sour and refreshing.The nasi dagang was really tasty. Served with a side of ikan tongkol and acar, the glutinous rice was fragrant and slightly creamy. The fish was firm and nice, with very little bones. The curry was thick with a strong hint of lemongrass. My nasi lemak ayam goreng was just as good. The rice was fluffy yet firm to the bite. With just the right moistness, it had a rich coconut taste and was very fragrant. The sambal was fiery red, slightly sweet and not overly spicy.The ayam goreng was something I looked forward to have, as rif told me they do a pretty mean fried chicken. Well-marinated with plenty of spices, the chicken was crispy on the outside with tender, juicy flesh inside. Having the whole chicken leg to myself was simply satisfying!

Ambiance: 5/10
Price: 7/10
Food: 8/10 (halal)
Verdict: Tasty food, reasonable prices. They also have a wide selection of nasi campur Melayu.

    Was at Village Park today afternoon around 1.30pm, a very bad experience and end up with order nothing and left.
    My friends like to go there, and I was there few times already, the nasi lemak is just normal.

    Today again, I arrived earlier than my friends, sit a table far away from the counter(alongs the corridor), the table was messy, so I stand and wait, then a waiter come and clean it, after cleaned, he told me that he go and bring over the menu to me.

    Due to I was received a call from customer few minutes ago, ask me to check an urgent mail sent by her, so I open up my LAPTOP with my Celcom Broadband to download that mail. During the time I see the waiter walk towards me with the menu, but suddenly he turn back into the shops…I feel weird, but thought that maybe he forgot something else, so I continue downloading my mail. After I done download my mail, I start realize that I sitting there around 10mins, menu still not coming.

    I also notice that there's an empty table just in front of the main entrance, so I decided to shut down my laptop and walk over to the table. Because it takes time to shut down the laptop, so I carrying it on my hand and walk towards, see an Old Man carrying a cleaning cloth towards the table and want to clean it for me initially, but suddenly he stared at my laptop, show me two hands and bad face, then walk away from the table and stand beside. I suddenly 'HANG' for few seconds, and remembered that my friend told me this place not allow to use LAPTOP. So I keep my laptop and stand up, then that uncle suddenly sit at my place and seems like want to chase me out from the place. That uncle(heard that is the owner) really too rude, he may have his own rules, but I didn't use his electricity or wifi, and never disturb his business because I only use for few minutes. He might be right for generating himself a good business turnover but definitely very wrong due to his bad very attitude. I will definitely banned this place for my life time.

    If there's really a in-house rules at his shop, he may come to me politely and tell me that I cannot use laptop at the place,(some more I'm just carrying it with my hand and standing, is not surfing over there for few hours.) Now everyone talk about internet, even government do support in some Wifi project to encourage residents to have more knowledge in internet & computers, so what he do is totally opposite with the generation and environment already.

    All the readers please imagine, what's your response if you're the one who got such a reaction from that uncle ? "SIAO SIAO" sit down, keep the laptop and call the Uncle nicely and ask him to clean table for you and make an order ?

    Wondering why there's so many people so stupid still want to go for such a bad service restaurant for the so called tasty food ? Actually there's quite a lot of food stall,restaurant are like these uncle, they thought business is good, so they treat customer very badly because they don't mind to miss a customer, because many stupid people still like to eat my food, come pay me the money, even I treat them badly.

    This shop information should be removed from all the Malaysia internet sites or blogs because it may misleading some tourist come to the place, and what if they treat the tourists like that also ?This will give a very bad impression to the outsider that Malaysian is all like that.

    Think twice b4 u come here. I'm sitting here for half an hour n yet no one attended to me. Service sucks.

    I seriously don’t understand the fuss of this place…must have kena jampi or what…the nasi lemak sucks. The fried chicken also sucks.(overfried and taste like stone). The service sucks and it’s also expensive.

    I can easily find 1000 nasi lemak place better. All those people crowding there are just plain nuts…paying premium price for sucky food with even suckier service.
