Interview with Muru, the CEO
Q1. From cooking to restaurant management, you know the ins and outs of the food industry. When did you discover your passion for food?

Muru: I discovered I had a passion for food at the age of 19, this industry is not only based around food but also includes meeting new people every day. It gives me great pleasure to serve different people and see them leave my restaurant happy. Food is something we need to survive so I know that everyone looks for good food which we offer in all of our restaurants.

    I didn’t have a great food experience here. Tacos was nothing close to the illustration in the menu . Infact the only vegetables I had in my tacos was the dry cabbage besides the mushrooms which i opted for and bits of cheese here and there. As for the country fried steak it was greasy and bland. This two dishes was the recommended ones in the menu.Keeping this in mind I dread to think how the others would taste. I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone as the food here is very dear . The total bill charged to us for poor service, poor food and unique environment was RM76.50 inclusive of a cup of peppermint & english breakfast tea each.

      We are sorry to hear your bad experience about the food. We were told that the first master chef at Bob’s Kitchen was temporarily transferred from Singapore and during that period, food was good. It seems that the standard has dropped recently. We will feedback to the owner about this and we are sure he’ll take this seriously and resolve the problem.
