After nearly a year of planning for my first steak, a friend of mine had suffered enough and dragged me to Tony Roma @ The Garden, Midvalley.
We had the Fried Mushroom for starters and being very hungry, both of us ordered steaks. Hehehe.
My friend, being a pro at eating @ Tony Roma, asked for the full sauces set...it comes with 4 bottles with different flavours. You can mix these up and come up with your own sauces.
While waiting, we were served with bread and some sort of sauce. Quite nice, the bread is very soft and tasty.
Then the fried mushroom with it's sauce. However, I prefer to dip it with a bit of lemon juice and my own concoction of Tony Roma's sauces mixture.
After that, came the steaks. I cannot remember the name, but mine comes with a bit of cut pineapples (sort of salad) on top. The portions are a bit small (for a big appetite like me). I asked for well done, and the steak is just perfect. I had Coleslaw and baked potato as the sidedishes. The Coleslaw is ordinary but the baked potato is quite nice.
I had freeflow Ice Lemon Tea, but only managed to drink a glass since the glass is quite large.
Overall, I think the ambience for the restaurant is nice and the waiters are very attentive. The food is quite good and the price is erhm...reasonable? (around RM170 for a starter and 2 steaks).
Due to the price, not usually my kind of hangout but once in a blue moon, is ok la.
Thank you very much to my friend for accompanying me in this grand adventure.
P/S : By the way, the Tony Roma is Malaysia is not certified halal due to they are serving alcohol in the premises..however all the food are halal since they took the chicken and the beef from halal suppliers. Being that, they do not serve porks here, so for those that wanted the famous Tony Roma's Baby Ribs, you need to go to Singapore for that.

Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
