I didn’t have a good experience when I was here last year. Was quite hesitant to come back but decided to give them another chance, and I’m so glad I did!


Food:

Specialising in wood-fire Grill, most of the food was spot on and packed with umami from the grill!


1. Special - Tiger Prawns (RM55) were juicy, could really taste the freshness of the prawns but it tasted even better with their house sauce! (Chimichurri / Peri-peri).


2. Vacuum Ribeye 250g (RM155) was the star of the night. Cooked medium-rare, seasoned to perfection and the meat was packed with umami flavours from the 15-day vacuum ageing & wood-fire grilling. I usually only like Wagyu beef but this was so damn tender and flavourful!


3. Smoked Snapper Ceviche (RM36) was slightly creamy but was still refreshing.


4. Smoked Barracuda (RM35) was still way too salty as I remembered it to be. Not a fan.


5. Char Line Burger (RM42) had really juicy patty and topped with their house chimichurri. Very flavourful and satisfying! The fries were good too.


6-1. Buffalo Sliders (RM28) were slightly tougher compared to beef patty, but still chewable and tastes great with the Pomodoro.


6-2. Beef Fat Fried Rice (RM32) was one of the best fried rice I’ve had! It had loads of flavour and came with 100g ribeye, great value!


6-3. Grilled Snapper (RM48) was moist and well-seasoned but the skin wasn’t crispy.


6-4. Grilled Chicken Wings (RM28) were flavourful, but tasted like even better with their Peri-peri sauce!


7. Chocolate Fondant (RM25) had great texture and flavour.


8. Rum Soak Pineapple Brûlée (RM25) was slightly sweet for my liking, especially when biting into the caramelised sugar.


Service:

Waiter tends to be inattentive sometimes, but friendly.


Ambience:

Casual but comfortable setting, indoor & outdoor seatings.


Disclaimer:

I was here last year and 90% of the food was damn salty. All I tasted was salt and salt. But really glad that they made tremendous improvement!
