Muugu Garden Bistro started operating some time this year in a hidden bungalow at Off Bukit Bintang near Levain Patisserie.
Despite its prime location and grand bungalow structure, the concept and prices are of casual dining standard. Over here, pasta dishes could go as low as less than RM20 whereas the steak are priced at RM40+ on average. Happy hour is available daily from 6pm-8pm during which you could get a glass of draught beer for only RM9!
I like the fact that they cater free parking spaces for patrons, unlike places like Changkat where we have to folk up 15 bucks for the valet.
As the name suggests, there is a garden space in front of the restaurant albeit a big part of it is made up of empty field which in my opinion is kind of wasted. Could have added some beautiful floral or perhaps set up some tables for outdoor dining? Never mind about the mosquitoes. LOL
Mediocre interior setting. The lights and paintings kinda helped but we thought it could have been more refined.
Mini bar area.
Oh hello Caesar.
I must say that I don’t quite like the extensions and wires visibly laying everywhere which were quite an eyesore.
Rib eye steak cooked to medium rare with your choice of sides and sauce. I would highly recommend the steak here.
Chicken thigh which I did not try. I’m not so much of a chicken person.
Aglio olio with a generous amount of garlic.
Catch of the day was Dory. It was alright I thought. I personally don’t quite like Dory being grilled. It tastes better when fried.
Truffle fries was great. Contrary to others’ reviews, I thought the truffle taste was quite prominent.
Oh, we were there for Jol Wee’s birthday dinner :)
It’s been a while since we last gathered for a proper meal.
Overall it was a pleasant dining experience. The food was definitely worth the price and the place, a sanctuary of serenity in the middle of the city.
