We highly recommend Awana . We went there for lunch on Mother's Day and had a wonderfully memorable afternoon.
Firstly the parking on the streets was no problem at all and free on Sundays on the normal pay parking bays.We had a very short walk to Awana and were greeted by a cheery welcoming smile
and a '' HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY '' aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh !!!
We were surrounded by warm smiles from the staff as we were led to our table.After ensuring we were comfortable, our waitress came with the extensive menu for lunch and for drinks. Infact , we didnt know what to order so Janise , one of the staff, did the job for us and ordered a delicious selection of starters and main courses. We both had smooth sweet mango juices as did our son but dear daughter wanted tap water and had NO problem getting it . The table next to us asked us what we were drinking as it looked so good .
We walked over to the Roti Canai man who was flipping the bread dough expertly and watched him prepare the Roti Canai . We had a chat with him and he remembered us from our last visit !! We then watched him grill the satay and fry the breads..
The next hour only had oohhs and aaahhs and yummys and 'SO goood' coming from our table. Absolutely delicious food . Every item of food was explained to us and there was a comfortable break in between courses.
Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious and each dish had an individuality of it's own . No taste overlapped or clashed and every morsel was aaaahhhhhhh so good.
An order of icecream / sorbets comes with three scoops and we opted for different flavours . Hence the four of us had a try of Mangosteen , cinnamon, guava,chilli !! , durian ( yum ) lemon , you get the gist !! We got to try it all!!
There were so many families in the restaurant and both adults and children appeared to be enjoying the food.
As it was Mothers' day , I was presented with a surprise gift from the staff. Lovely gesture, Everybody should try Awana if they can.
A Truly Malaysian Experience !!
