Location Of The Good Batch
The Good Batch is not easily seen from far as the signboard is much smaller than the neighbouring shops around it.
It is however, one of many restaurants and cafes in a tight shophouse row that directly faces the entrance to the parking complex of The Starling Mall.
- Location: 23B, Jalan SS 21/56B, Damansara, 47800, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
- Opening Hours: 10:30am–10pm
Ease Of Parking At The Good Batch
Despite the many parking lots in this area, these are nearly always occupied during lunch time. You’ll have to be extremely fortunate to find a free spot then.
So you may want to choose parking at the parking complex across instead.
Ambiance Of The Good Batch
This might be a small restaurant but there’s ample seating inside – mostly for groups of 4 and more. The tables outside can sit a big group comfortably.
And as long as your pet is well behaved, you can bring your pooch too.
Both the interior and exterior are welcoming and stylish with real (and faux) greenery and natural light from the large front windows. There is air-conditioning if you choose to sit inside.
That said, because the restaurant is small, expect it to get quite loud when crowded.
Service At The Good Batch
There were only two members of staff on duty when we visited on a Wednesday for lunch. They are very polite and friendly and the food and beverages came quickly (only one other table besides us).
Food At The Good Batch
There’s a good variety on the menu. Some mains are a fusion of Asian and Western influence. Like the buttermilk fried chicken with omurice.
Other items on the menu that caught our eye are the lamb shank, sea bass (fish and chips), big breakfast. For burgers, there are only two options.
We got the sea bass, buttermilk fried chicken with omurice, grilled salmon don, big breakfast set and the carbonara pasta. There was soup of the day (potato) with the set buttermilk fried chicken with omurice.
Our drinks were orange juice (this came as a set with the buttermilk fried chicken with omurice), green tea latte (Niko Neko), and cold brew coffee (white).
PS: The black version of the cold brew coffee is good too.
All of us were very satisfied with our orders. We’d like to highlight that the rice they use is of high quality, and they have generous portions for all of their mains.
We did not detect a heavy use of MSG here either (i.e., didn’t feel extremely thirsty for the rest of the day).
Pricing At The Good Batch
Mains can cost RM27 and up. The sea bass fish and chips was RM38. There are a lot of pricier mains in the menu.
Non-alcoholic drinks are around RM15.
Hence, it’s more value for money if you get a set since it comes with orange juice (not freshly squeezed), and soup of the day. You can change the drink to coffee or tea for an additional RM6.
Expect to spend around RM50 per pax if you plan to have brunch or lunch here. And that is without any alcoholic drinks.
The comfortable environment, courteous staff, and delicious food are what makes The Good Batch a great place for brunch, lunch or dinner.
However, because the The Good Batch is not that affordable, we’d suggest saving this venue for a special occasion or for a long overdue catch up with friends.
