My friend who is working in KL took me to this as a welcoming dinner. He ordered for me a very special sizzling authentic steak. The taste is perfect it was the most delicious dinner. I also took a grilled chicken for my wife in the hotel, that also was cooked by heart.

Permanently closed. The food used to be decent, but the restaurant closed down several months ago. There is now a Johnny Rockets on the Canteena's former premises.

Went to have dinner there... the food was excellent, the portion was big and since the restaurant was pretty crowded, they provide this small bell to get the waiter's attention. I especially love the nachos and the chicken steak. Wonderful...

Came to eat at Carlos during the Malaysia F1, so you imagine the area was fairly busy. First impressions were not good as it took a while for the anyone to sit us down moreso because they weren't really around to do so. After a few minutes of gandering around the front of the restaurant we sat down and was... More

We ordered their mexican plate which was more than enough for two people. Delicious mexican food and so many things to choose from. Perfect! It´s a shame they´re located in the Pavilion mall, it´s really loud around there. But still, top grades!

The only reasonable foods were nachos, the enchiladas thick and rubbery. The lime chicken was tasteless. The waiter did not write down the order and made one error and forgot one person in 5. The music was loud and intrusive metal like.

Within the Pavillion Complex there are only few Shisha venues available so we happen to opt for this one a couple of times. Shisha is quite pricy with roughly RM45 and considering the little crowd in the restaurant, the Service took too long. No apologies at any occasions even after reminding the waiter twice. Would suggest to rather go for... More

What a great and lucky choice. the service was excellent and the food even better. It was a lunch time meal and the restaurant was not full but it was... More

Started out by ordering a Margareta. Not available - what kind of a Mexican restaurant does not have Margareta's? It's extra disappointing as the place is surrounded by bars and I could have a Margareta in any one of them. Ordered a Corona. Arrived lukewarm. My friend had a seafood where the crab was clearly not fresh. I had beef... More

We went for dinner at this restaurant and the server and staff were so attentive and efficient. Our starter and burgers were simply amazing and we are fussy eaters. Great food and great atmosphere.
