The Flour restaurant at Bukit Damansara Kuala Lumpur is one of the few fine dining Indian restaurants in Malaysia. Since we read many positive reviews on the restaurant, we decided to have dinner with our friends there. There were seven of us and we spent RM 1k or RM 1000 for dinner. The receipt is at the bottom of this story so please read on till the end.
The Flour restaurant is located at 71, Jalan Medan Setia 1, Bukit Damansara. Parking is hard to find her even in the evening and booking for a table is a must for a table. Walk ins are not recommended as it is always packed.
The restaurant manager recommended to chose the best food for seven people for us as we were not familiar with Indian food. Well, why not since we just want to taste the best food from the restaurant?
We took photos at most of the dishes (not all) as this is not a food review. We ordered 12 dishes, some are individual dishes while some have two plates or more.
This bite size dish is called ice cream cracker. The base is a traditional bread from the state of Gujarat and it is crunchy in texture. The white cream is whipped cheese and with three drops of tamarind. This was the appetizer and we ordered three plates at RM 45.
The Murgh Zaffarn is chicken fillet marinated in Persian saffron and cinnamon, cooked in the tandoor with the crispy lotus cooked with honey and lemon. The combination is sweet with the crispy texture of the lotus and the creamy and tender texture of the chicken.
This is flattened duck liver from France with special sauce. The taste of the duck liver is not as intense of goose liver (foie gras). The taste is good but we still prefer goose liver than duck liver. Please do take note this is rather a small piece of duck liver.A glass of Mango Lassi at RM 16.
There were two curry leaf fish for 7 of us. The taste is similar than what you have in other Indian restaurant but the plating is nice. =)
Fancy looking expensive chocolates with vanilla ice cream. We would prefer Indian dessert than these chocolates with some added spices.
Overall, we enjoyed the food at The Flour but we felt that it is slightly overpriced. We don’t mind paying RM 1k for the food as there were seven of us so it is around RM 145 per person. Please take note some dishes are individual portion so not everyone manage to taste all the food. For the taste of the food, we think it is good, the service is good, the space is a bit tight and the portion of the dishes is small.
We dislike how they kept on pushing us to order Aqua Panna 1L for RM 20 for water while they have Spritzer for RM 5. We listed down all the prices so you can order on it on your own rather they have the say as it might end up over RM 1k again.
Some of my friends argued that this is not worth RM 1k but if the food is good, is it worth the price tag?
