TEA BOX CAFE IN NILAI

This is my virgin trip to Nilai and first time having dinner in Tea Box Cafe serving Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia food.  The set up outside the cafe was simple with breezy wind while the inner was kind of dim and dark.  So, definitely I chose to have my meal outside the cafe.



Even though the ambiance is inviting but the service is quite poor.  We asked for the menu thrice from two different server and it took 30 minutes before it was given to us. During that time, only one couple was having their dinner!   As usual, I wanted to order food with 'unfamiliar name' but all the waiter/ess can't explain to us detail of the dishes and have to refer to their main cook. Also, they don't know what is the best seller in the restaurant. This is so unacceptable, right? 

Luckily, all the food that we 'simply' order was awesome and cheap too. Save our day!

Cendol Jawa (RM3.50)
Using evaporated milk, this icy colorful dessert is filled with cendol, strips of jackfruit, soft red beans and black jelly. Quite sweet but acceptable after the ice cubes melts.
Ayam Penyet (RM7)
With a plate of white rice, it really goes well  with the blazing hot, tender + aromatic deep fried chicken. Mix it together with pungent sambal and  crunchy tempeh + fried salted fish for more ommph!
Tom Yam Chiang Mai (RM10)
When this arrive on my table, I was full of awe and couldn't get my eyes away  from the red smacking crab and prawns (big smile) and lala and ring squids! Not only the seafood are fresh but the soup made of coconut milk, lemon grass + etc was so tantalizing.

If I know the food here is so good (minus the poor service), I would not cancel order on Nasi Ambeng Udang... but just like the saying goes, Belum cuba belum tahu, lepas cuba hari hari mahu (lol)!


This cafe is located behind Majlis Perbandaran Nilai. If you don't know how to get there, just ask people for direction. As for us, we chanced upon this cafe while driving aimlessly in the town!

  2. It was about a month ago while on my way back from Melaka that I made a detour there looking for dinner. Food is certainly delish without having to burn your pocket hole.

  3. The taste and quality is our most important.
    A customer is king, and is eligible to get special services.
    And custumer satisfaction is our satisfaction, if satisfied costumer dissatisfaction.
    We shall improve our services as well.
    Customer is king, and of course entitled to special services.
    And custumer satisfaction is our satisfaction, if the heart is not satisfied we will improve our services.

  4. Hi!

    Judging from your wonderful and positive comments, I am sure you must be owner of the restaurant.

    Can you post your restaurant map/GPS co-ordinate here?

    Thanks.
