We celebrated at Nagaria Steak House

15:16 Yannie 45 Comments

continue from the previous post.... some of you want to know what May has given to her big sister as present, and what have papa and mummy given to April as present. You can find all the answer in this post.

Though this is the third post on April's birthday, I actually want to tell you more on the place we celebrated her birthday.


Unlike previous practices, May didn't make a card for her big sister, instead she got me to bring her to buy a present. She finally wished her big sister "Happy Birthday" that her big sister was longing to hear. Cheeky May.

April chose a classic coffee house/steak house, Nagaria which has experience more than 20 years in business. It is located on Jalan Pasar, a place does not exactly stand out amongst the many row of old, albeit well-preserved shop houses . By the way, ‘Naga’ means Dragon in Malay, and ‘Ria’ means Happy.

My husband loves this restaurant because of the attentive service, good old school menu selection,  consistent taste of steak, and no service charge.

I love this restaurant because of the exact ambience one can expect from a timeless coffee house with a soft lighting, slow music at the background, and now free WIFI .

Chicken mushroom soup and garlic breads.

Fish and chips

Oriental chicken chop

Fried noodles
Chicken in the basket

Mixed vanilla and chocolate flavour of ice-cream cake


April's classmate gave her the purple colour pencil case. May gave her the Paul Frank photo frame. Mummy transferred Uncle SK's gift ( toy and key chain) that she won from spamming SK's blog to her. Mummy also bought the birthday cake. Papa paid the food bill of RM49.20.

Okay, Nagaria is a must visit local cafe for those on a trip to Taiping. Some might raise the issue of why not hawker food in Taiping instead of going Western? Well! Once in a while, dining in the comfort of a cosy and air-con coffee house/steak house sounds so much more inviting than sweating it by the roadside.

Apparently, she has also blogged about it here.

  8. oh, this is really an old-school type of western restaurant huh?? reminds me of the Colleseum along Jalan TAR in KL, which i heard was the very first western restaurant in Malaysia and has hosted Queen Elizabeth and our first PM back in those days.. one signature characteristic of such restaurant - the aged waiters and waitresses~~ :D

    1. SK, you so clever, correct, the waiters and waitresses there are mostly aged, but their service is very good.

  15. Nice celebration.

    May was "naughty" to make her sister wait. Hahaha

    Happy birthday again April!

  16. I like Nagaria's food, too! Their quality can fight with their long-term competitor, Panorama cafe.

    1. Too bad, my kids and hubby are very Chinapek. They prefer to have rice + dish meal, bluek!

      Delete
    2. And they are not adventurous, e.g. the 'boss' usually opt to eat at the same restaurant over and over again, rarely want to change to a new option.

      I feel he's missing all the delicious food in town.

  21. Both April and May are so sweet!

    Spamming SK's blog to get this gift! Yan, you are so funny - LOL!

  22. All the food looked so delicious and the bill is so cheap lah! Anay faints!

    I just ate at Chilly's on Saturday and the bill came out to over RM70++ for 1 appetizer, 1 main course and 1 glass of bottomless refills drink. So mahal.

  23. Your daughters are so cute and easily contented with anything you give them. You are truly blessed unlike the parents we know here who get nightmares from their kids.

  24. The way you described this Nagaria is like The Colliseum restaurant in KL which was opened during WW1....!!!!! That is really old and they serve lovely chops and steaks by Hainanese chefs! The waiters wear those big buttoned white uniforms worn by Lau Foo Tze. LOL

  27. I always prefer to dine at a more comfortable restaurant when having meals with kids. RM49.20 for the birthday dinner is very reasonable.
