    One of my all time favourite shopping destinations. It has everything you can possibly think of from food options to clothing. Always come back here for more experiences.

    As this mall is located on the my way back home, I do stop by regularly after work.
    This review is about the mall before MCO 3.0.

    First, GSC cinema has a good choice of films then. There is an extreme park but indoors. Young people will want to try.

    Lots of shops and eateries and not too busy during the weekdays. There is a Lotus's supermarket. The food court is half occupied but still has variety. Many eateries to choose from. Got food and drink kiosks as well.

    All in all, worth a visit and it is not too crowded.

    A truly remarkable Thai Buddhist Temple in the heart of Petaling Jaya. A wonderful temple that offers a great solace to those seeking some peace and quiet. A good place to offer prayers and mediate.

    It was as sweet as your dream garden. You will be accompanied by blooming flowers and fresh greenness. The fact that it is located at the rooftop of a shopping mall made it even more convenient to visit. Good touch by the mall.

    My first visit to this mall and found it a pleasant experience. Parking was easy and the mall is not too large. It had some shops which I found suited my shopping needs like Jaya Grocer, Brands Outlet and Padini Concept Store. Like that it has a 'Bird Theme' happening everywhere. It was not too busy on a weekday when we visited.

    There are lots of interesting specialty shops, a Village Groccer on the lower ground floor, numerous restaurants, and a cinema. Plenty of easy parking.

    i was there recently to look for some camera equipment and meet a friend for a chat. it is quite old and many shops are closed as it is affected by the Covid 19 pandemic. There is a huge open air car park infront of the main entrance which is a site for food truck fair. short disnace to the Amcorp lRT station.

    I went just a few days before MCO 3.0. MBO Cinema has long closed at the end of 2020.

    I love some standalone shops like the charity shop BLESS which sells quality pre-loved clothing and other items.

    If you stay nearby, the VG supermarket, the Maju furniture centre, Harvey Norman, Caring Pharmacy, Mr DIY and the dozens of eateries make this into a sufficient neighbourhood mall.

    I only drop by because it is on the way from my workplace and that day, the roads were jammed leading to my home. So it is nice enough to eat there and shop for necessities. That's all.

    This is a very beautiful park around an ex mining pond. It is beautifully landscaped. During this movement control order by the authorities the place was closed. They still maintained it well.

    This mall is connected directly to the Surian MRT station and it looks huge from the outside but internally nothing much is happening. There are very few retail outlets and some nice cafes on the ground floor.

    There is this British academy of performing arts inside it and a Japanese buffet restaurant. There is a open space on top of the mall where you can hang out and see the kota Damansara area.

    Good for kids and school excursions. For us adults, not much to see, but probably the best place is the little shop at the end where you can buy chocolate goodies. I love the chocolate spread which is tasty and cheap.

    This neighbourhood shopping centre has one of the best car parking in many that I have been to. They have many nice restaurants, a dentist, a cinema and two supermarkets which is rare for shopping centres. It is environmentally friendly with a big skylight.

    It's location is great, small enough so you won't need to walk round and round looking for something.
    Quite a variety of food is offered within d mall or just a stones throw away.

    Needed a Post Office so called in here... A grand sized building that looked quite prosperous from the outside, but it's empty within. Not a lot there.

    Enjoy coming here each time I am in Petaling Jaya. They have a few good shops like Mr DIY and Daiso. Recently noticed that there are more empty shop lots now and even the Jaya Grocer is closing down sadly. Parking in the centre costs RM3.20 for the first 3 hours. There is a cinema on the top floor. There is a variety of eateries to suit your budget.
