This is my second visit to Bar.b.q Plaza, with the first one a few years ago in their now closed puri branch. I have already forgotten the taste and experience back then, but dining here again reminded me of the same thing. Honestly the only thing that make me curious to try this place is the recommendations given from my friends in Thailand.
So first, you would be asked to choose a la carte or all you can eat menu, this time I ordered the a la carte. I ordered the supreme set for two. The meat and dishes that was served is quite different than the pictures. While the amount of the meat and veg are the same, the thickness of the meat itself is lacking. The meat slices that was served was very thin and quite lean.
Honestly, with all four of the meat selections in the supreme set, all of them are not tender, despite being very thin. The taste is acceptable, acceptable meaty taste. But there is nothing more to it, the texture is not pleasant, there isn’t much fat for it to melt in your mouth, the only redeeming thing is the sauce that was given. I maybe spoilt with other yakiniku branches that serves better cut/meat, but at this price point, I had expected something more, since it’s not that cheap.
Meanwhile the other toppings, chicken, squid, and veg, all them are so so. However, I’m not a fan of the small shabu-shabu spot for it, and the fact that it was never hot enough to be boiling without burning and charing the meat.
For the service, it’s quite okay, nothing out of the ordinary. The waiter/waitress was quite attentive and reactive. The teas are bottomless and they are happy to refill it.
On the other hand, the restaurant itself was a bit unkept. While at a glance it’s not dirty, there are a considerable amount of flies hanging around the restaurant. Furthermore, since it’s located next to the alleyway towards the toilet, the restaurant itself is quite open, and hence you don’t really get lots of privacy inside.
