The mall is great, I am a frequent visitor as I stay in Damansara Kim. But I had a terrible experience today... I requested the security guard when entering the parking lot to scan my wrist as I have recently started to get headaches when they scan my forehead.

The guard began to give me a lecture on the SOP and then ended it by calling me "bodoh" probably thinking I wouldn't understand him. Needless to say I was speechless... and then he just reached his hand into my car and scanned my forehead and told me to move.

Most terrible experience!

If any of the Starling Mall administrators read this... please talk to your security guards and tell them to be more polite in the future. Thanks.

There are too many shopping malls in KL. The Starling mall is a good one to go as ample parking spaces available. There are a good range of retail shops inside the mall including household hardwares, bookstore and wide range of restaurants for choices. Recently, it has Christmas decoration with a London bus at the atrium for taking photos. It attracts the visitors to stay around.

This Mall has almost everything I will need. It is spacious and cosy and is situated in a very convenient part of PJ making it really easy for me to commute to this mall to get what I need.

In terms of eateries, it has a pretty good selection as well ranging from Chinese to Asian Fusion, Western style, Japanese and a cool authentic Korean eastery as well. The Food Court sells really authentic Malaysian Chinese Food which is a pleasant surprise. There is a cinema, plenty of places to hang out and to buy your groceries. Best of all, the parking fee is really reasonable. Uptown itself is also a place where you can almost do all your banking needs and most of the major banks are situated here. I like it!

At the third floor of starting mall is a food court called foodies nest. It's a decent place to hang out with nice sofa seatings too. They have some famous food outlets like Annie1 for wanton mee, Lim fried chicken, Champs for pork noodle. Do note that it is a non-halal food court.
Besides the food court, there are many other f&b outlets like Go noodle, Rakuzen and Saladliers. The book axcess has a cafe. An americano here is only RM5.

A great mall in the PJ area. Though not as big as 1 Utama, this still has a wide variety of stores including a huge grocers, MR DIY, Daiso, Sketchers etc as well as a good option of food such as Nonya, laksa, western and Italian etc

There is also ample parking, and is a good base to explore the shops and restaurants around the surrounding area.

I was recommended to stay at the Somerset Damansara Uptown in Petaling Jaya about a year ago. The accommodation turned out to be very good but what was even better was the discovery of “Foodies Nest” on the 3/F of the property which forms a part of the Starling Mall.

If you’re a connoisseur of local Malaysian food, look no farther than the “Foodies Mall” and many varied dining establishments within and Ed without this Mall !!!

My experience is I inevitably find it very hard to tear myself away from eating places like “Foodies Nest” as the offerings there are varied, reasonably priced, delicious and clean !!!

“Foodies Nest” and other dining spots in the Starling are highly recommended !!!

Beautiful new, kid friendly mall with a kids innovation centre and food court with kids area. Mall with lots of food options but all shops only open after 10am. Other than the little fox that serves breakfast to the hotel nearby.
