1. Casa Rosa Mont Kiara Pines

Run by the same proprietors of the famous franchise, Jake’s Charbroil Steaks:

This restaurant in Pines Condo at Mont Kiara serves premium wagyu, sirloin, and rib eye steaks.

Their steaks have a robust meaty taste with a rich smoky flavor. It may not rival the tenderness of a USDA Prime, but it comes close enough.

If you’re not into steaks, then the Charbroil Chicken is an excellent choice. But you might not want to skip their Hawaiian Pizza topped with extra cheese either.

2. Hong Kong Ban Jeom @163 Retail Park

On the first floor of Solaris Mont Kiara:

Hong Kong Ban Jeom serves Korean Chinese Food prepared by a native Korean family.

You know you’re in for a real treat as the brimming crowd also includes the local Korean community.

Hong Kong Ban Jeom’s rendition of deep-fried chicken in hot pepper sauce (Kkhanpunggi ) is great. It has enough heat to leave a lingering burning sensation.

It’s crispy too. And the spicy pepper sauce imparts a mild, sour nuance that complements each nugget.

Jajangmyeon is another favorite of ours here. This slurp-worthy bowl of homemade noodles has a thick black soybean sauce. And a generous topping of minced meat and pickled vegetables.

Don’t leave without savoring their Tangsuyuk either. This is a classic dish of sweet and sour pork stir-fried with vegetables in a tangy crimson sauce!

The simple Calzone Pizza is satisfying too (my personal favorite). It has a crispy outer dough. The filling is turkey ham, mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and sweet tomatoes.

For starters, pick their Mushroom Soup which is not too thick yet flavorful.

Another item to try is the stuffed chicken breast dish that has cheese, herbs, and vegetables.

The restaurant is dim. But there are still many Instagrammable corners that deck this spacious venue.

Including the European-style fireplace in the living room. And tons of vintage movie posters and paintings, alongside knick-knacks above the bar.

Margherita Pizza and Bruschetta are exceptional. Thus, this branch is one of the best places for Italian food at Mont Kiara.

8. Chicken House Solaris

Chicken House Solaris may be a humble setup but they have excellent fried chicken.

The Original Chicken is the chef’s kiss. While their soy garlic honey and spicy series are other delicious contenders.

Regardless of which version you choose, these addictive cutlets are crispy. They have tantalizing marinade and succulent insides.

There’s also a fruity Soju that pairs well with the fried chicken!

Additionally, the house kimchi is good as well. It is sour, pungent, and tangy all at once. And packs enough spice.

9. Goheung Restaurant

It’s a love-hate relationship with Goheung Restaurant. Because while they have good food, the portions are small.

But each order does come with complimentary side dishes (banchan) and they taste good. But you can only have 1 refill per side dish. And they come in smallish portions too.

Mains like the pork bone stew (gamjatang) with a bowl of fluffy white rice is worth ordering:

The meat falls off the bone and the spicy soup is delicious! Drench the comforting broth over the rice for a satiating meal!

Aside from the pork bone stew, the kimchi stew (kimchi jjigae) is another exceptional item on the menu. It’s garnished with fresh spring onions and red chilies and served with a bowl of rice.

Goheung Restaurant is one of our go-to restaurants for Korean food in Mont Kiara. The ambiance feels authentic and wholesome too.

10. Kanbe Ramen

At Kodawari, order any udon and tempura here and you will not regret it:

Our personal favorites are the tempura fish, brinjal, and sweet potato fritters. These have a coating of light batter that makes for a crunchy bite.

But if it boils down to choosing one main:

Our first choice is the niku miso onsen dry udon with strong umami flavors. The noodles have a great texture too.
