This restaurant has been around like forever. Every time I walk past during and even after lunch hour, it seems to enjoy good business.
The counter is manned by two Indon ladies and there are a few other staff who help with orders and serving. Service is not exactly congenial and the server took her time to hand me the menu.
Besides chicken rice, they also serve noodles, fried rice and side dishes. After studying the menu, I was ready to order. When I looked up, there was a young man hovering in front of my table. I wasn't sure if he was the server or what. LOL!
Then he just gestured to me and I was like OK, I want this and this, stabbing my finger at the photos in the menu. I mean, he could have asked me if I was ready to order or something to that effect. I don't want to accidentally give order to a fellow customer as that would be very embarrassing hah..hah...
The chicken flesh was too soft for my liking, like it has been cooked for too long. The soy sauce tasted all right.
I quite enjoyed the beansprouts although it was topped with a bit too much oyster sauce. The fried shallots are of the commercial kind, more convenient for the restaurant I suppose.
My limau ais was nothing more than water, ice and a bit of lime juice. So weak and so sour. Memorable for the wrong reasons.
There are rave comments on Google reviews with an average score of 4.2. They obviously have their fans but I am not part of the club.
What's my score? Let's just say that suffice I have tasted the chicken rice at Nasi Ayam Hailam Damansara Utama at least once. Total damage RM21.40.
At first my eyes were too fast, I thought got free drinks. Then I realized it was "dairy free drinks", which is a totally different thing hah..hah...
