Gasoline: Ampang Lookout Point (Little Genting)

Gasoline Cafe @ Ampang Lookout Point!

On 1 Jan 2010, we went to Ampang Look-Out Point aka Little Genting, which was located at Jalan Hulu Langat, to celebrate 2010 New Year. The place was famed for the beauty of the panoramic Kuala Lumpur night view. We arrived at the entrance near to 8pm and the car park was full at the hilltop near to the restaurant , then we had no choice to park at the bottom. Parking fee was RM2 per entry.

The pathway to the uphill (about few minutes)

We walked up to the restaurants along the walking pathway as shown above. It took about few minutes.

Can see the entire Kuala Lumpur night scene.
What a fantastic place to enjoy KL view.

Once we reached to the restaurants, we were thrilled when panoramic KL view was revealed in front of us. Wow, what a breathtaking and spectacular scene. It was really a perfect place to enjoy the vibrancy of Kuala Lumpur. From there we could spot Petronas KL Twin Tower and KL tower easily.

Start to rain while waiting food.
Not bad we still able to see the night view.

There were few restaurants like Gasoline, Bread & Olive and Haven (more information click here). We decided to have our dinner at Gasoline, recommended from friends and blogs. It served variety of western food and Chinese food. The choices were abundant... headache?






Due to the new year, the place was overwhelmed by people. Our orders was slow, we had to wait long. The orders was out of control also, one of my side dish order was not serviced. I think in the normal day, it should be fine.

keep on waiting...waiting...waiting

Finally we could savour our late dinner!
Tomato fish n chip RM13.90
Vietnam fish fillet rice RM7.90

The price of the food and drink were reasonable. we found the food there okay, at least no tasteless. Since the primary reason we went there was not for the food but for the unique environment.

Sleeping beauty RM6.90 (left)
Apple snowy RM6.90 (right)

Watermelon juice (L) RM8


The watermelon juice was quite nice (not putting too many ice & water ). The sleeping beauty tasted good too.

My order of Portugal chicken rice RM7.90

Here is the environment of Gasoline at Ampang look-out point. The place was crowded.We was lucky that we could get a table under a roof because the day was raining

Another view of Gasoline (downstair).

There were few tatami style dining rooms at the inner side but no one sitting there because most probably the night view could not be seen from there.

My baby was excited and happy. Did not want to sleep although it was late.

Although it is not the nearest route but it is the easiest route. The elevated Pandan Indah Interchange in MRR2 allows the drivers from both directions, the north side like Setapak and the south side like Cheras, to enter in.
