We ordered mushroom salad and 2 pieces of cakes, mango cake and green velvet. Enjoy the salad very much, dressing was amazing, lots of mushroom, n definitely fresh vegetables. Kinda disappointed with the green velvet but mango cake was a kick. It was fresh, spongy, n addictive for those who likes mango, it is a must order in Tom's!!!

We went there for cakes and had a citrus cheesecake and Madagascar chocolate cake. Both were very good! The citrus cheesecake was very smooth and perfect balance between tangy and sweet. Savoured every bite. The Madagascar chocolate cake uses dark chocolate and is rich without being cloying. Also very good.

The onion rings are very big and well fried.

We also tried a hot mocha but it was not good. Don't think they are good for coffes.

The prices here are very pricey, especially the main menu. Prices for cakes are around RM10-15.

It has been more than a year since we had a meal at Tom's. The measure of a good restaurant is it's ability to maintain the food standard; be it taste, presentation and portion. The food quality hasn't changed much since it's opening and it remains as delicious as ever.

However, the decor hasn't changed though. After being opened almost 20 years, I think it's time the restaurant gets a little makeover. The Xmas decorations are up so it covers the datedness a little and creates a festive atmosphere for the coming Yuletide.

We had the mushroom vol au vent and garlic bread for starters. The vol au vent was new on the menu and was very good. Highly recommended! They also still serve the best garlic bread in town. We ordered the Fried Calamari Carbonara Pasta, Lasagne, Spaghetti Bolognese and NZ Rib Eye for main course. For dessert we had the Strawberry Tort and Chocolate Mousse Cake. As mentioned, the food remains delicious. The only problem is the price. The meal cost USD$ 60 in total, with drinks, when other restaurants would cost USD$ 45 for the same meal. The cost of a meal can also go up as high as you want as Tom's is one of the few restaurants that serve Wagyu beef. If you can afford it, the Wagyu steak costs USD$ 78 for 150grams. Expensive!

That's the reason why we did not give a better rating coz we found the meal expensive even though food remains very good. Some of the best restaurants in the world are not necessarily the most expensive in the world. The dated decor also contributed to the average rating. A restaurant is not only rated by its food quality but also by the ambience. However, on a positive note, the service remains excellent. The restaurant has a good group of waitresses who will take your order promptly and serve you efficiently.

Overall, we rate it 6/10. We would have given an 8 if the decor is updated and the pricing a bit more reasonable. The restaurant still serves good food though and you won't be disappointed. The service is top notch too.

Nice air-conditioned premises for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Serves a range of salad, snacks (pie, burgers) as well as Italian pasta, steak and seafood dishes.
