Bubba Gump Citta Mall

So, here I am at Bubba Gump Citta Mall for lunch with colleagues. Surprisingly, there were not many customers on that day, which was on a weekday. The staff looked energetic and lively, and we were attended to, almost immediately.

After browsing through the menu, we placed our orders for Scampi pasta (RM32.90), fried chicken (RM27.90), boat trash (RM44.90) which is to be shared among the four of us. We ordered their signature drinks – Mango Sparkler, Speckled Strawberry and Speckled Blueberry (RM12.90).

Our food was served quite fast, and the dishes were hot. Scampi pasta is actually an olio pasta dish with prawns, and comes with a big piece of toasted bread. The pasta tasted good, well-seasoned and cooked well (al dente). The Prawns were cooked just perfect. The boat trash is a combination of pieces of fish fillet, prawns, lobster tail and fries, all of which are deep fried, Bubba Gump style. I have had this dish since the day they started their business here in Malaysia. Somehow, I ‘feel’ that the portion has gone slightly ‘smaller’, perhaps in line with the higher food cost. The other dish we had was the fried chicken served with coleslaw, corn, and a scoop of mash potatoes. Overall, the food tasted good, and is more than sufficient to be shared among the 4 of us.

The signature drinks are bottomless (that means you can ask for unlimited refills for free). My favorite drink here is still Mango Sparkler, which is refreshing and a real thirst quencher. We had Mud Pie for desserts (RM22.90). It’s a big-sized dessert and can be shared with at least a few people. In my case, it was shared among the 4 of us, and yet we struggled to finish it. Yummy!

To sum it up, Bubba Gump is a good place to have meals with family and friends. Some of the dishes come in big portions, so do check with the staff before you place your orders. A number of the drinks are bottomless, which is good. The restaurant carries their signature look, which is standard across all other outlets here in Malaysia or internationally too.

How would I rate them? The atmosphere 4/5, Service 3.5/5, F&B 4/5.

Now, let’s talk the food. We got our food quite fast and the dishes were hot when it was served. Scampi pasta is actually an olio pasta dish with prawns served with a piece of toast bread. The pasta tasted good, well-seasoned and cooked well (al dente). The Prawns were cooked just nice.

The boat trash is a combination of pieces of fish fillet, prawn, lobster tail and fries which are deep fried, Bubba Gump style. Since I have had this dish since the day they been operating here in Malaysia, I ‘feel’ the portion of this dish has gone slightly ‘smaller’.

The other dish we had was fried chicken served with coleslaw, corn, and a scoop of mash potato. Overall the food tasted good. I still prefer the Chili’s country fried chicken though.

We shared the food among 4 of us and it was sufficient.

So, to sum it up, Bubba Gump is still good place to make meals with your family and friends. Some of the dish has big portion so always check with the staff before you ‘over order’.

A number of drinks are bottomless which is good for most people. The restaurant carries the signature look which is standard with other outlets here in Malaysia or overseas.

Visited in May 2014. How would I rate them? (Scale 1 to 5, 5 being the highest score).

The atmosphere: 4 / 5, Service: 4 / 5, F&B: 4 / 5.

Bubba Gump… Shrimps and more plus good service!

Well, first of all this is not my first time coming over to Bubba Gump. I have been visiting this place ever since they opened the first outlet at the Curve in 2008!

On this particular visit, I was here with friends on a Friday night. We just wanted someplace casual yet cosy so we can have good food and chit chat. Anyway, we ordered A bucket of boat trash (fried shrimp, lobster tail, fish fillet with Cajun spices and fries, RM44.90), ceaser salad (RM18.90), Alabama hot chicken wings (RM21.90). As for the drinks, we ordered mango sparkler (mango, lemonade, orange juice & lemon-lime, RM12.90), Coke (can’t remember how much was it) & speckled lemonade (lemonade with strawberries or blueberries, RM12.90).

We loved the ceaser salad! The chicken wings were tender and juicy. The portions of the food are good as well, nice to share with friends. The only thing I would like to comment about is Bucket of boat trash dish. I feel the portion of the dish is quite ‘small’ considering the price of it.

Oh yea, we also had Alabama mud pie for dessert (RM22.90). This dessert is quite huge and definitely can be shared with at least 3-4 friends. I find it good! Layers of chocolate & vanilla ice cream with chunks of Snickers topped with chocolate sauce and crunchy peanuts!

Alabama mud pie. Its heaven! :)

The servers are mostly foreigners but I would say they are trained well, at least I can clearly understand them well. It’s been a while since I came over here. My last visit would probably be in 2012 which was an average experience for me. This time, I would say it was good dining experience @ Bubba Gump Sunway. Overall, I liked it. Will be coming back soon!

Visited in September 2013. How would I rate them? The atmosphere 4/5, Service 4.5/5, F&B 4.5/5.
