Located at Bright Centre along Lorong L Telok Kurau, The Garden Slug serves affordable and unpretentious western food. Our neighbours are a handful of pet shops, and a very well-known animal clinic. We offer comfort food like steaks, pastas, salads, sandwiches, soups and such. We also have Southeast Asian iced teas and aromatic coffee to kick off your day or end a quiet evening. 

Our walk-in diners form the core of our business and that's what keeps us busy seven days a week. Apart from that, however, we also cater to parties of all sizes; we're a speed-dating venue, as well as a unique location for exclusive product launches. Our diner can be an exhibition space, and we're good for hen parties, closed-door events. We even hold cooking classes and more! If you're interested in knowing more, feel free to ask us!

Always a Joy in the Belly and the Heart

I've been following this humble little diner since their beginnings 8 years ago, but I haven't been in the recent months because I've been out of town. 

Last week, I had dinner there and was very heartened to find that they have stayed true to their roots, providing delicious, homely food with service that puts most restaurants and cafes to shame. 

I ordered the very original Marmite Pasta, which was an amazing fusion of Western and Eastern flavours, and my all-time favourite, off-the-menu Parmesan Fish Nibbles. The pasta was new to me but it is now something I crave for, and of course the fish nibbles are exactly the way I adore them to be through the last 5 years. 

Since I haven't been for so long, I tried out more of their new items and another gem was the Garmesan Fries. They have a really interesting assortment of fries and this one is definitely original - fries crisp on the outside and moist on the inside topped with garlic and cheese!  I look at some of the reviews here and find it tragic that people only write when they have something negative to complain about. For the 8 years that TGS has been running, they've been making so many people happy in the belly and the heart. But alas, not many have come forward to share their memorable experience.  TGS is definitely something quite precious in today's world of cookie-cutter service and menus, in the sense that they are genuine, non-discriminatory and daring enough to challenge with new ideas. You should absolutely give them a chance and see how they leave you with a wonderful experience too, then you'll understand how fortunate I feel so have discovered them.

Terrible food

I haven't had a bad meal for a long time. I think most western food stalls at coffee shops can serve better food than this place. The snack platter for sharing is simply oily fried frozen food from supermarkets. I would not recommend this place at all for the food.

No longer as good as before

We used to patronize garden slug and loved the breakfast there but recent visits have been rather upsetting. The big breakfast was a little too salty and there was only 1 measly slice of bread not enough to complement the bacon and sausages. The latte and matcha latte was too very poor without any sort of coffee aroma or matcha taste. Overall not value for money.
