Coliseum Cafe is one of the oldest British Colonial era steakhouses in Malaysia located in KL. Now they have a branch in Petaling Jaya keeping with the same menu & style but with a slightly more modern / airy outlook. Decor wise it keeps to the faux wooden tables and chairs with white tablecloth. Rather close together so it can get cramped and noisy when their packed.The service is typical of the original in KL whereby sometimes they are attentive & quick however at times slow & non responsive.
The service is typical of the original in KL whereby sometimes they are attentive & quick however at times slow & non responsive. Think that is part of their style. In the KL branch the servers were infamous for having some air about them.
When it comes to food their steaks are quite decent. Their top draw has to be the sizzling steaks. Served in front of you while it pops and boils after the sauce has been poured on the hotplate. They will tie a bib on you before serving so that the sauce doesn't splash on your clothes. They also have nice half roasted chicken. Don't forget to try their oxtail soup which is pretty awesome. If you are not up for Western this place does serve good Hainanese dishes like the chicken chop, fried nice or noodles and even toast.
Wouldn't call this the best steakhouse in Malaysia however it is a nice place to visit every now and then for the old Brit charm.
