Nice ambiance and a good chill out place. Food wise, the taste needs improvements. For the price they offer the food has to be equally good.

The food and beverage we ordered was good and met our expectation. Although some fumble did take place on our food order with uncooked food served due to some error in their kitchen. However the overall comment or review for this outlet would be for...their management to focus on service delivery standard, they need to have a proper operating model to manage their waiters service level. Their operating model has no proper systematic approach, we had to wait for long to get waiters attention, orders never served and need to request multiple times or some items never served, the attention given, especially for long tables with many guest was indeed bad. Although the staff seem to be trying their best to meet our expectation, it was very clear the operation was chaos in my view as a guest. My review is based on my personal observation during my visit recently. Room for improvement, especially on service delivery.More

Food is consistent, I had my usual brown rice beehoon and due to a congested sinus asked for a hot toddy... no actually i asked the barman, "do you know how to make a hot toddy" and he said No ma'am. So here is a...message to every bar owner all over the world, you MUST know how to make a hot toddy. !! There is no excuse of "no ingredients etc". (a famous restaurant in New York gave me that excuse 2 years ago when i asked for a hot toddy on a very cold winters day!). But the bar guy has always been very sweet, kind and friendly, so i decided to have an Irish coffee instead and it was excellent! Toilets- any bar or restaurant that has dim lights in the toilet is trying to hide the filth! I have told Bangsar branch umpteen times, brighten the lights in the toilets and WASH THE WALLS OF THE TOILET, SCRUB THE BOWL, CLEAN THE SINK, WIPE DOWN THE DOORS AND HANDLES, ETC ETC and i am tired of the manager telling me, in fact insisting, it was cleaned. The dirt was so obvious and it was embarrasing to hear him insisting it 'just had been cleaned before he left the place. I had seen the manager leave and had just been there, so i know i am not imagining what i saw and have seen so often. Bin overflowing, old dirt and mold , stains, just disgusting.... so a supposedly high class bar. Really sad that the manager did not take my complaint seriously. Service is touch and go... sometimes good and sometimes not.More

The music here never fails to hit the right spots for us 90s kids! The service is always good and the mojito is a must-try cocktail. They serve up a good variety of food (local and international fare) and desserts, a good hangout place, for...couples and and excellent hangout place for friends too. Selection of food/menu can be found in my pics. P.s. The establishment definitely needs to improve on the cleanliness of its toilets! Super filthy on our recent visit.More

They have a lot of veg options and food with the drinks, which is rarely the case with a bar. The food was good, but cocktail options in happy hours is limited. It is super crowded on weekends night so go early. Had a good...time.More

A great place to hang out, have good food and drinks with friends or colleagues or even meet people. There's pool tables for those who want to play pool after their dinner. Food's good. Staff is friendly and accommodating.

There aren't many bars open at 3pm in Bangsar KL. Thankfully The Social was. The 34°C outside called for a chilled cider, this time Elderflower - very refreshing. Tucked into a delicious spicy chilli fries with chilli beef and melted cheese. Delicious! Love the ambience...of the place too. Not crowded and no loud music - able to have some conversations.More

Nice atmosphere to drink a pint or good glas of wine. Friendly personnel and a simple but good card (loved the shredded duck).

What’s not to love? Open spaces, relaxing atmosphere, you are forgiven to think it’s nestled on a beach front if not for the honking of the cars. This is referring to The Social in Bangsar. Lovely spot to have a few bevvies. Food is alright...and waiting staffs are ok. And oh, Guinness is on tap. More than justified!!More
