After reading several glowing reviews about NOSH, we decided to give this restaurant a try. The restaurant is located at the top of Jalan Telawi 3, for convenience you can park in Bangsar Village and walk there.
The interior is pretty basic but comfortable enough. When we visited, we were the only two customers in the restaurant. They have weekday set lunch for RM15 (a main course and a drink) but the selections did not appeal to us so we went for the a la carte menu. The a la carte menu is quite compact, with a selection of Western and fusion dishes.
Summer oasis mocktail (RM9)- raspberry puree, lychee syrup, pineapple juice and soda
Ginger Beer (RM6)
Hubby ordered The Nosh Rack (RM52), which is described as juicy rack of lamb with sauteed spinach and olives served with a delicious breaded portobello mushroom. When the dish arrived, we were really shocked at that way it was plated. We have been hearing from acquaintances about how nice the plating is here and to get this was pretty dissapointing. When we placed our order, the waiter asked how we would like it done, and we said medium rare so was expecting to see pink meat but unfortunately the meat was cooked towards well done. Thankfully, the meat is still pretty tender and everything was quite flavorful despite being a little salty in parts.
I ordered the Braised Lamb (RM38), which was described as succulent leg of lamb slowly braised in red wine and cherry tomato sauce, served with spaghetti. What I got was a dish with lots of pasta but only 5-6 small pieces of lamb, and I expected the lamb to be tender since it has been slowly braised but unfortunately it was a bit hard and chewy. Again, this dish was too salty for me. By now, I was not in the mood for desserts and I asked for the bill after we finished the mains.
Price: RM115.50 for 2 pax.
