One of the oldest cafe in town, with extensive popular clientele in the past. With current more modern and niche cafes sprouting around, Coliseum is losing out. However, the Jalan TAR outlet still keeps most of the original design and other nostalgic elements so it is worth a shot, to experience the old charm of KL dining.

Cafe for those who love to indulge in old time Favourite like hainanese chicken chop, hailam Mee , chicken curry etc. Decor depicts the colonial times including furniture to the crockery. The standard of cooking has dropped compared to food served 20 years ago. Food served is still good and worth a try.
