Look Out Point aka Little Genting @ Cheras

If you want to have a glimps of the city view at night, there is a place for you to visit which located near Cheras which they called Look Out Point or also known as Little Genting. It was my first visit to the place as usually each time we when for picnic at Sungai Congkak, we just bypass the place.

But on that day after  our small picnic at Sungai Gabai Waterfall, we decide to have our dinner at Look Out point. If you are not that familiar with the place, you might bypass it as its surrounded with thick dense jungle. Please drive slowly and carefully as the road is a bit winding and steep.Usually a lot of those mamat motor aka mat rempit will always enjoys the cornering so be extra careful especially at night as there is no street lamps.

 When we reach the place, previously there is no parking charge but now they charge. Not sure either their charge hourly or by entry. I paid RM3.00 during exit. You may park your car below the lookout point or drive up to the restaurant. We all decide to park our car at the open car park below the hill and walk up to the restaurant.

We took the staircase to the restaurant.

When you see this sign on the stairways, means you had reach at the place.

It took us 15 minutes walks to the restaurant as we take our time climbing the stairways heading to the restaurant while enjoying the view. When we reach, it was a breath taking seeing the view. There were a lot of restaurants available for you to choose from fine dining to fusion food.

You can see the iconic Twin Towers and KL Tower on the background.

We decide to eat at Look Out Point which serves Western Food. We choose the place due to there are much more crowd compare to the other restaurant. In our mind, if there were a lot of people throngs to the outlet, means the food serve they are good. It a good place to hang out with your buddies or having romantic dinner with your loved one.

For the food, order the food with simple name as some of our order reach late. Luckily for my main course, it came fast. It was sizzling chicken chop. Didn’t snap the other food as we went in a group so I have to control my manners not to be obsess in taking photo of the food as some of them not that keen I’m taking photo of their food as their were hungry. Maybe next time when I’m alone with my wife, I can have a proper picture of the food. For the service, it quite bad as their tend to forget to deliver the food to our table. Those who came late received their food early than us. Hope the management will look into this and overall the food is nice.
There were few blog you may refer to such by Rojak Daily and Andrian to name a few for direction to get there.
