Chillout could be the most chic restaurant in Cyberjaya at the moment, and just like the name says the atmosphere here is really chill and inviting making it a great place to hangout. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about the food and service. Food wise, most of them are average at best except for their burgers, which received thumbs up from everyone who had it.
The lower dining area with a nice, comfy couch.
The upper dining area is somewhat for beer drinking as there is a bar here. Private functions and larger gatherings could also be held here since the tables at the lower are could only accomodate four to five people max. If you’re working in Cyberjaya as well and need a nice place for events, you could give Chillout a try by calling them first and ask for any special discounts. I don’t guarantee it but we were told that by the manager in person that he would provide discounts for groups larger than 10 (we had 16).

With so many established multinational companies and universities in Cyberjaya, there are bound to be a lot of events and celebrations. And when it comes to birthday occassions, I bet most of you get the cakes from that cake chain shop (you know which) So if you are already bored of the usual offerings, there is an alternative now – Petite Patisserie located at the newly opened Shaftsbury Square.
Chocolate Dream – This delicious combination of rich chocolate mousse, chocolaty sponge and smooth praline mousse is set to melt in your mouth
Strawberry Delight – This light-as-air strawberry cake is filled with a sweet-tart strawberry mousse between layers of delicate vanilla sponge
Mango Madness – Bite into this fruity refreshing mango cake that is filled with silky smooth mango mousse between layers of vanilla sponge
Firstly, some introduction and background on Petite Patisserie. Frozen mousse cakes are their specialties and each and every cake sold here is imported from Singapore. Currently, the cakes come in three flavors: Mango Madness, Strawberry Delight and Chocolate Dream and are sold at RM49 each in its plain form, recommended for tea break or snacking purpose.
It’s a shame that I have been working in Cyberjaya for over a year and I have yet to post any food in this area. Well, to be honest there are not many great restaurants nearby. The good ones would be expensive or too far for a typical working day’s lunch or dinner. I only allocate RM5 to RM7 for a meal you know? It seems a lot but actually it’s just enough to buy yourself a decent, edible meal in Cyberjaya. Then I found Saba, a restaurant serving Middle Eastern food.
Starting with the nicest of all the food I have had before at Saba – Lamb Tikka Rice @ RM15. A plate of rice cooked using spices served with flavorful cuts of lamb which were first marinated with yogurt and spices. I don’t know what were those placed on top of the rice but I didn’t like it because they tasted sourish.
If you look carefully at the next dishes, the rice used in Middle Eastern cuisine has a slimmer and longer shape. The rice was so skillfully cooked that each grain was separated from each other completely!
Followed by Lamb Kebab Rice @ RM12. The difference between this and Lamb Tikka is obviously the lamb – which was grilled on a skewer instead. The only reason this dish lost out to Lamb Tikka was because the meat was too dry and lacked flavor if compared to Lamb Tikka. Don’t misunderstand though, I am not saying Saba’s Lamb Kebab is bad, just that their Lamb Tikka is too good hence making the rest seem so so. Another lamb dish I tried was Lamb Kabsah @ RM15 which was lamb wrapped in aluminum foil and pressure cooked with herbs.
If you don’t like lamb, you could opt for Chicken Kebab instead @ RM9/10.. can’t really remember. Oh you can choose between rice and pita bread for any kebab set too. Like for this one, the Chicken Kebab was served with pita bread so it came with some extra fries and sauce. I feel pita bread is more suitable for girls because the portion of rice served is very big.
