In my time working in Cyberjaya I have only had the chance to try 2 of the aforementioned restaurants. I can't quite remember the name of one of them but I was at Alamanda yesterday afternoon for a lunch with some of my team leads at The Coast. It was a farewell lunch for myself and another colleague.
ST once worked with someone who told her that The Coast was run by a former chef of Chilli's. I don't know if there's any truth in that but flip open the menu and you will find food that is very similar to what you can find in Chilli's. Perhaps it's the American diner concept that makes it similar but I digress.
My first time at The Coast was with ST many months back and we were less than impressed then. I remember we were served dishes that were half cold and half warm. For example the burger was served cold (like it came out from a fridge) and the fries were just fried. Odd right? We swore never to go back again but this time I was not paying so no complaints from me :)
Entrance to The Coast.
There were 5 of us and we ordered a starter to share. The starter was called the Trio Dip which as its name implies consists of 3 appetizers with 3 different dips. I have no idea what you call those 2 breaded appetizers but those at the back are chicken drummets marinated to be a little sourish. I can however tell you what the dips were; garlic cream, tomato salsa and some kind of cheese.
The Trio Dip. Quite good... worth a try.
For myself I had a burger with cheese and mushrooms. Surprisingly this time around I have nothing but praises for the food at the Coast. The beef patty was about an inch thick and it was ever so juicy. Coupled with sauteed mushrooms and melted cheese it was sinfully delicious. Damn... I'm hungry just thinking about it.
My colleague who had the fish and chips however didn't enjoy his meal. It did look pretty bland to me too. So what's the conclusion? I guess they are worth trying out at least once. They have some reasonably priced set lunches that go for less than RM10. If you're looking for the Chilli's/TGIF experience within the Cyberjaya/Putrajaya area you might want to consider coming here.
