What’s written in the Lonely Planet story is as below:
Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur
Bangsar may be better known, but Damansara Heights has the buzz. One of the richest addresses in Kuala Lumpur, this neighbourhood has retained its personality despite its recent revitalisation.
Post-facelift, Jalan Batai has developed into a community-focused street replete with eateries and cosmopolitan conveniences. While the road has yet to draw KL’s cool kids, the offerings – farm-to-table restaurant Sitka, Ben’s Independent Grocer (including a great coffee bar) and the elegant Torii yakitori and whiskey bar – deserve attention. Swing by Plaza Damansara, a beat-up area seeing an uptick of shiny shops and restaurants such as café-bakery Huckleberry, Skullduggery speakeasy and Flour, a North Indian restaurant that peddles a knockout biryani. – Lonely Planet.
Missing in the article is the most happening and probably the busiest Irish pub in the neighbourhood. It is non other than Sid’s Pub and Restaurant offering the best Guinness draft in the country as well as their mouth watering food.
Damansara Heights definitely makes us proud. They beat other neighbourhoods from country like Canada, Japan, Thailand, Singapore and many others in the world. Maybe it is time for us to chill in Damansara Heights again. Now who said Kuala Lumpur is boring?
