An increasing hard to find burger joint in Malaysia. For those growing up in the 70s and 80s, A&W was the go to place for Americana and the drive -in/diner experience. On this visit, we found a run down dine-in burger joint that's probably seen better days. Plus point - they still serve the root beer in chilled glasses and... More

Sadly, development has taken the better of an iconic location for many, which brought back memories, and was also a convenient place to meet due to its easy parking.

This is the few A & W around and located right in the PJ area next to LRT as well. Free parking and good A & W root-beer float & some desserts.

Gone are the days when the burgers and coney dog was soo good! Now we have tasteless food and flat sweet root beer. The Pirate burger was all hype and the boiled corn was soggy! ...wish we could have it just like in the good old days!

Still brings in many nostalgic memories of yesteryears. The food & beverage menu, the environment hasn't change at all, which in this case, is a good thing. Though have to highlight that price has increase quite a lot which its only affordable as once in a while treat.
