Fong Lye is a Taiwanese Restaurant which has recently opened their latest outlet in The Gardens, Midvalley. Among the many restaurants in The Gardens, we chose to dine in Fong Lye because it was the most cheapest restaurant we could find. Well maybe cheap priced food comes with cheap quality.. our dinner was not good at all. Lesson well learnt: you get what you paid for.

seafood spaghetti

We ordered three types of food and only this Fried Seafood Spaghetti tasted good, it was a bit spicy. But, it was not worth its price tag at all. RM20+ for a simple seafood spaghetti like this.. not many seafood also! And they even served that cheapo cartoon faced fish cake lol.

pork dumplings

Pork Dumplings in Beef Soup – very normal only, nothing to write home about. During my entire meal I have been paying attention to how the restaurant was run. The design, although nice is not practical. There’s only one way in and out of the kitchen. Worse still, there was a wall blocking the kitchen’s sight. I have witnessed many incidents where the waiters kept running into each other when delivering foods. If they are not careful enough, they would surely drop and waste the food. The staff are pretty clumsy too, every other minute you’d hear something break.. which reminded me of Queensbay’s Dragon-I.

stir fried lala

Then came their Taiwan Stir Fried Lala, which was a total failure. I’ve been watching Gordon Ramsay’s shows recently and learnt quite a lot about kitchen and restaurant management. If Gordon Ramsay was running Fong Lye’s kitchen, he will never serve this. Using his very own quote “It’s fucking stone cold! Don’t you dare to serve it!” Yeah he swears a lot in the show and he’s a perfectionist. I am guessing the lala (clams) were already cooked earlier and can be served immediately whenever someone orders it. But please lah, at least reheat it before you serve it! The taste itself is already sucks, some more is blardy cold!

The total bill was RM60++ and I was pretty angry with the quality of food and service we were given. There were other unhappy incidents but I rather not talk about it. In the end, we pretty regretted not going to TGIF. We could have had an awesome 3 course meal instead! Masak-masak thinks their food is quite good, it was a different branch at Sri Hartamas and reviewed 2 years ago though.
