We went in and ordered cappuchino. Coffee came

It was vile. Milk had been boiled. No discernable taste of coffee

Top dollar (over 11ringitt) for this rubbish. NO.....how dare they?

Took it back to the counter. Explained my problem. Demanded a refund

Did I want more cold milk?...........NO

Did I want another shot of coffee?.......NO

Evevntually the Manager materialised and gave me my money back

How can an international brand serve such muck and have the gall to call it coffee?

A good place to stop for coffee and iced lattes. They have free wifi and nice seating where you can relax and chill. A good meeting place.

Exactly what you would expect from Starbucks, but they never fail to deliver, the place was clean as you would expect and the staff were friendly, reasonably priced

It's Starbucks. As the title states, wherever in the world. Consistently good coffee, free wifi, courteous staff and another great place to enjoy local life happening around you.
