What Happened To Flamin J
What happened to Flamin J? Think they closed down and now some funky chinese kopitiam took over.
What is the secret to a successful restaurant in Taipan? The remaining ones and still standing strong
1) Restoran Hassan
2) The three food courts
3) Pizza Uno
5) Las Carretas
6) La Chochina
9) Thai Corner
Most recent casualty :
1) Just Pasta
3) Khanom Jeen
4) The one next to Satay Hj Samuri
I still remember the Rest Nasi Padang. Now it is Focus Point at the corner in front of McDonald's. I would see them bringing in the furniture, renovating,
painting. From nothing till the opening ceremony. 4 weeks later, they closed down. Vicious la this Taipan.
But to all you guys out there still standing strong, keep it up. For future rest owners in Taipan, we don't want anything to fancy mancy like Khanom Jeen. Who would pay RM14.00 for a plate of green noodles?
Keep it simple, delicious and most importantly..cheap and we'll always keep coming.
If I am not mistaken, there is a notice at the shop saying that it has moved to Hartamas.
Went to Flamin J for dinner once, the place was deserted. Probably due to the rather high $$$$$ and the so called American size is nothing to shout about, neither is the taste. After all these years Logenhaus is still one of the best in Taipan.
come on...i visited flamingj once and was dumbfounded with the astronomical prices they charge for so called american food....normally i walk past flamingj and i wouldnt see anyone there except their workers..and their workers would normally b walking around and chatting among themselves.....come on lah,if u were to open a western food restaurant here in taipan,make sure cheap and nice lah...how is flamingj going to compete with vict station or logenhaus? sure bungkus!
Err...In is right...Jason moved it to Sri Hartamas...where he has set up another outlet which is doing much better in Taipan...he called Orchi some time back to inform Orchi about it...
Good Luck n all the best to him...n his young family
Agree tjat Logenhaus is nice place to eat in.....mostly it isn't really that pack that you need to queue for sometime to get a place...food is nice, ice cream is nicer....price is reasonable............i would rate Logenhaus above Victoria Station..........

I would like to think it's quite weird everytime I go to the restaurant. It doesn't feel low end (fast food as in McDs) nor high end(vic). To me, the environment doesn't feel like inviting. maybe i am just wrong.
Environment is everything. Look at Logenhaus. Not really fancy chairs and tables but I still go there. Khanom Jeen, fancy chairs and tables, one time and one time only.
If the rest is too fancy, general public would think it is expensive. But an environment like Soo Kee or Rest Hassan, hey, come on in...........
I guess u r right man. looking too fancy will makes you think twice of going in. You will think it cost a lot so spend our hard earn money.

A little blur here..... Where is Soo Kee and what do they have? Is it the Medan Imbi's Cantonese Fried Beef Noodles, of which the son has an outlet in USJ 9?
Oh... another restaurant also going strong is the Pizza Uno (though the prices has increased a lot since the last time I visited)
yeah...the owner of pizza uno was my former neighbour many years ago...used to be quite close to them but not anymore as i havent been in contact with them for quite some time..they started out quite simple but have been growing tremendously due to their splendid food and atmosphere..their prices last time were quite reasonable but now i think they have increased their prices..

I like pizza uno's outlet in centerpoint, what is the quality of the food in taipan?
I found Khanom Jeem's serving to be too small and price too high! Still remember the Chinese lady who brought us some Thai noodle (looks like putu mayam) and suggested that we have it with our small bowl of green curry. We thought it's on the house!!! Unfortunately, we were charged!!! Felt cheated.....lor!!

The service there is also good, that's why it can last so....so....so long!
