Lunch @ Ben's, Pavilion KL

Most of the time when we're in Pavilion KL, we would head to Tokyo Street for ramen however Hubby wanted a change so we picked Ben's as our lunch venue. We have visited Ben's in KLCC before but it's our first visit to this outlet in Pavilion.

I always find the interior of the restaurants by The Big Group very nice and this was no exception. Tastefully done, I especially like the tall shutter doors at the entrance. 





The restaurant was pretty busy but Hubby got his order of Ben's Cheeseburger (RM25.90) within 10 minutes of placing our orders. We've had this burger before at other outlets and as always, it is satisfyingly good. Thick beef patty sandwiched between soft sesame buns, crisp French fries and an appetizing salad... ;)




And while Hubby ate, I looked through some of the recipe cards (provided by the restaurant for interested diners to take home with them). And I waited some more. And I ate some of Hubby's fries. And waited. And Hubby took his last bite of burger and I was still waiting.


Finally after 45 minutes of waiting, my Wagyu Beef Pie (RM25.90) arrived at our table. The pastry was flaky and buttery and the filling was flavoursome enough, but I don't really understand "why such a long wait" for this.





Opening times: 11am to 10pm (Sun-Thurs), 11.00am - 12 midnight (Fri-Sat)

Service: Slow.

Location: Ben's, Pavilion KL, Lot 6.11, Level 6, Tokyo Street, Pavilion KL, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

Tel: 03-2141 5290

  7. The burger looks so-so...but the pie! Why did the pastry look like that? It certainly does not look enticing but I guess at times, appearance can be deceiving.

    1. The pie came in two parts. I guess it's not the prettiest looking pie but tasted good.

  8. Happy New Year lovely!! :D Wow a 45 minute wait is really long! Were they baking them from scratch I wonder (which would seem quite mad, nobody would do that) or just an order error! :o It looks good but waiting so far after everyone else to eat doesn't seem very good.

    1. They have another outlet, which serves roasted beer-butt chicken and even that only takes 45 mins (and its stated on the menu so ppl know there is a wait). I doubt that they baked it from scratch... maybe forgot about it!!

  9. The place looks nice! Your pie looks good, I guess it is worth the long wait? am wondering whether the recipe cards are the actual recipes that they served there!
    Happy New Year!

  10. I've not been to any Bens yet... :-p
    But I often see this place is crowded. 45 minutes of waiting...that's really a long wait for a pie!

    1. I rarely go to Ben's but I always go to Ben's General Food Store in Bangsar. They do very good pizzas there.

  12. Ben's waiting time can be long during peak hours. Haven't been to Ben's for so long. Personal favourites are the lasagna and pad thai.

  13. Blessed New Year Baby Sumo! Ben's Pavilion is our regular branch if we eat at Ben's. The QC and service seems better.

  14. Not a big fan of Big's chain in general, the service is so-so and food is not consistent. The perils of expanding too quickly.

  15. oo.. must check out the recipe cards... I didnt notice this before though I have been there... is it only the Pavilion branch maybe that has this?

  16. Ugh, 45 minute waiting is way too long... They should recommend you to order appetizers or something before! The restaurant looks really beautiful and cozy!
