Shopping Centre
“The Curve Mall Kuala Lumpur is a gleaming shopping centre in Petaling Jaya that stands out from the rest of the competition thanks to its quaint weekly flea market and range of non-retail activities. With a combination of outdoor dining spaces and more than 250 stores under its roof, it attracts a fair number of shoppers every day, particularly during the weekend. Metrojaya serves as its two-storey anchor tenant, and shoppers will find a range of mid-level international labels such as British retailers Debenhams, British India and Dorothy Perkins. What’s more, local labels Marry Merry, Diva, Blossom Box Store and textile store Binwani’s are just a few of the stores you can visit for a look at the city’s local fashion scene. When it comes to food, the outdoor walkway (The Street) is a great place for grabbing a bite to eat as you can find popular restaurants such as Johnny Rockets, Malone’s, Italiannies, Kenny Roger’s Roaster, T.G.I. Friday’s and Bavarian Bierhaus German Restaurant & Bar. Fast food favourites like McDonald’s, Baskin Robbins’ and KFC can be found within The Curve Mall Kuala Lumpur.”
