Shilla Korean Buffet Restaurant @ The Curve.

Aiks, apologies for the lack of makan updates recently till ekeng dropped me a message asking me if I'm ok :P Thanks for ur concern ya!
Too bad today I'll be featuring a new in town but not-so-good Korean buffet restaurant located at The Curve. The pricing is somehow affordable, RM49++ per pax but with compromised quality and selection of food.


The ambiance is fine and cosy with modern settings but I find it abit weird though. The restaurant is very spacious but only less than half of the tables were occupied. The range of food served includes sushi, maki, a limited range of sashimi, korean appetizers, grills, poached seafood, ginseng chicken, noodles, rice, salad and barely appetising desserts :p
Take a look at the food...
Mussels with BBQ sauce (I think) and baked in cheese

Sushi and maki (so-so quality, nothing to shout about)
Korean Anniversary Noodles
(Find it quite interesting, abit sourish with the minced tomato on top and I think it comes with ginseng soup base)

Plenty of fresh oysters (hope they are fresh though)

Scallops baked in cheese (below par as the cheesie layer was way too hard and tasted stale)

Grilled lamb cutlets, chicken skewers in hot and sweet sour sauce.

Took too much of their white tuna, some smoked salmon and tuna.

BBQ chicken wings (appreciate if they come piping hot or was it meant to be a 'cold dish'???)

I thought the chocolate fountain would make my day after the unpleasant dining experience but duh...the quality of the chocolate used was not up to expectation...or was I too fussy :I

Hmmm...will I still pay another visit to this restaurant? After all the description of the food, I guess you guys know the answer...

LOCATION: First Floor, 147-148, The Curve. (Near Cafe 1920 and Vivo Pizza)

I was there with the Sistas many many months ago but ahem, like you said, food not that fantastic. The night we went, the chocolate fountain was jammed up, clogged by residues? Hahaha!

Cokeworld Citizen said...

lolz...i thing I realise when I go Spore is they dun serve white tuna. But KL has it everywhere! :S

oh yeah I saw the Breakfast Show the other day, they intro Sushi Groove (i think)...seems a hip place. Their dishes are meant for sharing.
