ps - Some notes I found from the restaurant's website ..
Established in 2003 and recently refurbished, this charming down-to-earth and unpretentious restaurant offers you a warm and cozy hideaway to wine, dine and to celebrate any occasion.With the choice of dining in airy decks and terraces, overlooking foliage, and comforted by sounds of running water or in the air-conditioned comforts of our dining floor or private rooms, you determine the experience you’ll want to discover with us.
The food is fusion but with added local twists for the brisk business lunches. But whether it is one or the other, Executive Chef Alex ensures excellence for the palate and the eye, for here at the Courtyard Garden, food and ambiance stand on high equal regard.

Just had an office lunch with 10 others today. Most of us opted for the set lunch which includes a drink and dessert. The restaurant was packed.
The main course was nothing to shout about but what really took the cake was the dessert for the day. Get ready for this - it was plain peanut butter with luke warm water stirred in!!! This was confirmed by the waiters serving us - I sent mine back to the chef. The waiter who took it back laughed and there was no sign of the chef, nor was there any kind of apology. As I explained to the manager Azman (I phoned later and made a complaint) who was apologetic - if I want to have a peanut butter drink I do not have to go to a high end restaurant in D.H for it and pay $$ for it! So much for the cooking skills of chef Alex. Given the choice for restaurants in KL serving decent food without short changing customers I certainly will not recommend Courtyard to anyone.
