Review: Uncle Don’s, SS2 Petaling Jaya

Hey guys! 

Sorry for not updating this space more often; things have just been super busy. The editor was on compassionate leave, so I was manning the fort alone, and these two weeks are crucial coz we’re closing our magazine pages. Between that, handling the digital side of things, working on a pitch AND my part time gig, you can imagine how crazy it has been. D’:


The JW and I were in SS2 PJ and she suggested Uncle Don’s for dinner. There’s an outlet in Puchong as well and it’s always super packed, so I was quite curious as to why it’s so popular. The food is a mix of Western and local specialties, so you can get burgers and pastas, as well as rice/noodle dishes.

Was not too impressed with the service. We got there around 7PM and the tables inside were already filled up. Despite seeing us looking around for a table outside, the waiters stood around chatting with each other, completely ignoring us. When we found a table, it was awhile before they finally came to give us the menu.


Ordered the Vanilla milkshake; turned out to be a sorry excuse for a beverage. I know you call it ice-cream, but damn… it was mostly ice and no cream lol. And as you can see pic, the portion was abysmal. After stirring it around, it didn’t even take up 3/4 of the mug.  I guess it was a blessing in disguise that the portion was small because the drink was tasteless.


I absolutely adore buffalo wings – so I was really excited when I saw they had ‘Giant Buffalo Wings’ on their menu.

…. Introducing regular wings with a spicy sauce! If there was a buffalo wing dry rub on it, I couldn’t taste it. 😦 Taste-wise it wasn’t too bad; I was just disappointed because I was expecting the sauce-coated kind. Sigh.

After two misses, the burger fared much better. I had the fish burger (Above) while JW had the lamb. They were stacked, humongous and messy – and I liked how homemade the patties tasted. Also topped with a generous amount of oozy cheese and slices of pineapple for a sweet/tangy kick. The fries tasted like the regular frozen kind.


JW’s lamb burger.

All in all, an average dining experience. Burger was good but other items not so; and the service was a turn off.

  • Food: burger 7.5/10, other items meh, SAD VANILLA MILKSHAKE 😦 .
  • Service: 3/10 are you being paid to chat and ignore customers when you clearly saw them looking for a table?
  • Ambience: I actually like the ambience inside, although we couldn’t get a table there. Good for drinks and casual get togethers. 7/10. 
  • Price: Surprisingly affordable. You can get fried rice etc. for as low as RM10.
