Fullhouse @ Sunway Pyramid

Stepping into Fullhouse is akin to walking into a wonderland for the young at heart, especially for customers who love dollhouses - this spacious restaurant is a distinctive sanctuary for families & friends to flock together in a soothing, serene setting conveniently housed an escalator ride above Sunway Pyramid's skating rink. 'Know You Are Loved' & 'Be Thankful,' Fullhouse's colourful mascots proclaim as they welcome you at the entrance.


Now is the ideal occasion to visit Fullhouse; the restaurant recently launched a revamped menu with many potential new favourites for the mall congregation. Start with Mr Krabby (RM22.90) - we like this mix of crab meat, scrambled eggs & spring onions, flavoursome & fresh, stuffed winningly in a crab shell, breaded & deep-fried for a lovely texture, served with lemon aioli for a little uplift; it's a well-executed recipe that makes for a worthwhile introduction to the kitchen here.


Chicken is also an attraction - the Chicken Parmigiana (RM29.90) is a capable take on the Italian classic, with the tender thigh meat topped with turkey ham & bolognese sauce, baked with mozzarella cheese for layers of creamy, addictive pleasure. The signature chicken chop (RM22.90) will have fans too, featuring a char-grilled cut blanketed in house-made black pepper raisin sauce, complemented by mashed potatoes, corn on the cob & sauteed garden vegetables for a hearty lunch or dinner.

Pastas & pizzas ensure there's something for everyone - the baked cheese penne (RM22.90) is piping-hot comfort in a bowl, with plenty of turkey ham, mushrooms, mozzarella to dig into, while the Hawaiian pizza (RM23.90) is a fuss-free interpretation of this familiar staple, amply adorned with turkey ham, pineapples, onions & mozzarella on a tangy tomato base.

The menu spans both East & West, hitting the bull's eye (egg) with a pretty tasty fried rice (RM21.90) that's surrounded by crisp boxing chicken, prawns, fish cakes, fish crackers & pickled vegetables that should placate the Asian palate, plus a barn-storming beef burger with the works (RM25.90), heaped high for a sink-your-teeth-into-this tower of a temptation.

'Where's the beef?' is a question that'll be rewarded with a sizzling response, as a grilled rib-eye (RM49.90) surfaces at the table, steaming on the hot plate, complete with potato wedges, buttered vegetables & a side salad, bolstered by a choice of black pepper raisin, garlic herb or mushroom sauce - a classic throwback to a stalwart of Malaysian steakhouse menus for decades, & now, the final piece of the puzzle for Fullhouse head chef Alvin Yap's current recommendations.

Desserts are designed for chocoholics - Death By Chocolate (RM19.90) showcases the visual flair of a molten lava cake perched atop & dripping down on ice cream & berries, while the Triple Chocolate (RM19.90) is precisely what its name indicates, with an all-chocolate ensemble of a chocolate brownie with chocolate ice cream & chocolate sauce on a too-hot-to-handle pan, reflecting the work of pastry chef Florencia Gladys.

Fullhouse offers a wide range of flagship beverages with plenty of vibrant, photo-happy allure - we merrily sipped on Tony's Sparkling Tea, the Tracy Garden Greens, Tiramisu, Traffic Light, Thomas Cocout Mint Shake & Tiffani Yuzu-&-Rose throughout a leisurely midday meal here. Many thanks to the friendly Fullhouse team for having us.

  3. I remember going to Fullhouse many moons ago when they were still in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng and they were the talk of town because of their beautiful all-white decor. This girly-girl theme will go down well with families with very young children, tweens or teenagers (of the female kind).

    1. Contact.ewew: you're right, my initial encounter with fullhouse was probably at yap kwan seng too - and yeah, it's definitely more of a baby shower place than something for a stag's do! ;)

  4. What a very happy and very lively place. I have bookmarked this place to bring some visiting guests to enjoy. I myself would be happy to eat there and admire the unique decor for a nice change. I wish more restaurants and cafes would invest like this one to create innovative ideas. Kudos Sean.

  5. Hubby just asked me about the name of this restaurant the other day & I can't remember it! Glad that they still stand strong at Sunway Pyramid although they used to have a few branches in Klang Valley~
