Verdict: Total bill came to RM260 for two. Overall we had really wonderful dining experience at Entier. Delicious food, friendly service and lovely ambience. Their lunch session is crowded, so try to be understanding if your food takes a while to arrive, and staffs are unable to attend to you immediately. They do their part well, we would say.
Overall, it was a nice experience. They were full house for lunch but food arrived rather quickly. Customer service was good.

I decided to be adventurous and indulge in the Ceylonese version of thosai. It was fresh out of the stove, warm, thick and fluffy. If you like your thosai thin and crispy, you best inform them of your preference when you order. I loved it. Tastewise, it tasted like a usual egg thosai except for perhaps some additional flavors. Some spices perhaps?? I usually do not like my thosai thick but it somewhat works here. It felt like I was eating a pancake, an Ceylonese pancake and the egg, ooo that was fluffy too. Yummm! The dish came with a side of fish curry and grated, fried coconut? I do not know what that coconut dish is called but I assume it is a common, staple Sri Lankan dish as every other Ceylonese restaurant I’ve been to serve this this as a side. It was flavorful, I finished it within 5 minutes and requested for a refill 🙂
The Buddhist Maha Vihara Temple in Brickfields is more ascetic, so it might not be a draw for tourists – but it is still an interesting place to visit if you’re in the neighbourhood and want to learn more about Theravada Buddhism. If you come during major celebrations such as Wesak (Buddha’s Birthday), the place transforms into a colourful and bustling hive of activity.
Among all the places I’ve stayed at, I think this has got to be my favourite hotel room by far! I’d be happy to come home to a studio apartment like this, to be honest. 🙂 I liked how areas such as the bathroom and the ‘balcony’ (essentially a small living room/work space) were partitioned, but still very open so as to give a sense of added space. Everything was also neatly tucked away, like the fridge and tea/coffee making facilities in the cupboard next to the TV. The warm, ambient lighting added to the overall cosiness.
Given its attractive price point, beautiful interior design and unique sky-high calm, Alila Bangsar is highly recommended as an accommodation choice while you are in Kuala Lumpur.
I liked the fact that the dish came with 4 options for vegetables as oppose to the usual 3. There was spinach, corn + carrot, beetroot and cucumber. The corn + carrot was a rare combination, I cant say I’ve come across it being served at restaurants. I really liked how they cooked it – spicy and packed with flavorful, thick tasty gravy. The Chicken Varuval was awesome but since I couldn’t personally pick out the pieces I wanted, let’s just say there were plenty of bones. Not a big issue though, since I was using my hands to eat, my fingers can work, work, work. The Chicken 65 was a good addition, it provided something crunchy and chewy to an otherwise wet, moist dish. Overall, I had a good time here and yup, I agree, food is good here.
There is also another signature dish of Mutton Bone Varuval that one simply must order. Thick and rich with deep spiced notes from slow and long hours of cooking to render the mutton bone till oozing with soft gelatinous marrow richness, the varuval is marvelous with rice.
