Never Mine


Quirky names attract us to eateries like honey does a bear (or something like that).


Never Mine at Changkat Bukit Bintang is more of a watering hole than a restaurant, but customers can order Thai food from Baan 26 next door, including crispy duck coated in a nutty sesame sauce with rice vermicelli.


Pan-grilled spring rolls, packed with plump prawns. Never Mine took over from Cin Cin, a champagne lounge that opened in April last year and closed several months later. A pity to have lost Cin Cin, since it served tasty oysters, foie gras and other tidbits.


Curry squid with egg. All perfectly fine, but since customers can have these at Baan 26, there's no compelling reason to visit Never Mine.


Lime-steamed prawns. Viciously spicy; way too much chili in this one for us.


Lemon chicken in pineapple, to help soothe our scorched taste buds.


No lack of booze here. Pick your poison: China White (vodka, baileys, white cacao) and Angelique (caramel, baileys, absinthe angelique).


Breast Infection (tiger beer, jack daniels, lemonade) and Golden Dream (galliano, cointreau, orange juice, whipped cream).


Never Mine, It's Yours,
Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

  11. be warned - you will pay RM25++ for a diet coke!!!! we had a diet coke and a beer - the coke was more expensive than the beer!!!!!!!!

    Also this bar has a sister bar on the same side of Changkat which is the old Finnegans, now a sports bar.

    I agree with the other comment - the staff and owner are all money grabbing robbers with zero respect for the customer - stay away or be prepared to be ripped off.

  12. Very bad experience with dangerous bouncers who attacked our group with fists and bottles. Avoid this place!
