Sip Wine Bar @ Empire Damansara

Sip lives up to its name, serving value-for-money wine buffets every evening - it's an unbeatable bargain; customers can enjoy up to 20 different wines nightly (except Tuesdays) at only RM64 nett per person, from 5pm through 1am.

There's no catch to this: When we visited, the bottles were ready & waiting on the counter, with a diverse range of reds - from Chilean to South African to Australian - calling out to us, while the whites were calmly chilling in ice buckets. Glasses are supplied to customers; whenever you finish a glass, simply return to the counter & pour yourself more of whatever you like.

We enjoyed getting well-acquainted with Sip's Malbec, Pinotage & Shiraz, plus a Sauvignon Blanc with vivacious flavours of fresh pineapple. That line sure rings true here - "Years, lovers & glasses of wine; these three things should never be counted."

 Hot food is available - a crowd-pleasing Western variety of sharing platters that span chicken nuggets (RM18), cheese pizzas (RM18), nachos, pasta & more, alongside a solid range of Asian favourites (available Mon-Fri only) such as petai mee hoon (RM20) & sambal fried rice (RM20). Besides the daily wine bonanza, other alcohol promos are also offered - Mondays are dedicated to a free flow of Carlsberg beer; Fridays & Saturdays bring discounts on whiskies. Thanks to Sip for having us here.

  1. I don't drink alcohol, but I wanted to say that the bottles are very attractive, as is the ambiance...and you know I love exposed brick, Sean! :) The dishes look tempting.

    1. Linda: the exposed-brick feeling is a good one for any wine bar :)

  2. Sip Wine Bar will then provide competition to Mezza9 which is also in Empire Damansara. But if I'm not mistaken, it cost only RM55 for wine buffet in Mezza9... And 20 different wine is a lot.. Probably more than its competitor. But some of the wines do not have body and not every wine is as smooth... Hits and misses really. Good for those who don't want to get stuck with just one or two bottles of wines.

    1. Leo: ooo, i think Mezza9 is at Publika, and if i'm right, their wine buffet is RM65 nett (but still very close, yeah). true, with a wine buffet like this, there'll be a few that we might not enjoy, but hopefully, the value will be in the variety, like you said :D

    2. Yup... Jus checked and its 65 already! The last time I went there was 55 :P guess I didn't go back for long time. There used to be Mezza9 in Empire Damansara.. Did they close already?? I'm so outdated. Their selection of wine was similar to Mezza9 though (not all selection la)

    3. Leo: guess with inflation, everything must rise, heh ... i don't remember mezza9 in empire damansara though ... i only remember it at hartamas, and then at solaris dutamas ... maybe it was at empire damansara for a short time in between :)

    4. Actually, SIP used to Mezza9, it was taken over by someone else and changed the name.

    5. Kelly: ooo, thanks for the clarification! i didn't know that. so Leo, you were right! :D

  4. Passed through here the other day and couldn't believe the free flow of wine for that price! Still, I think I'd much rather have one glass of really nice wine, than guzzle on cheap stuff all night long.

    1. The Yum List: true, quality always trumps quantity, though in the end, i think there were a few good wines here to enjoy, both in the whites and the reds, heh :)

  5. What's that? Petai bihun? Hmmmm...gotta try cooking that somtime. I love petai!

    Yes, liquor is meant to be SIPped slowly and enjoyed...not poured down one's throats like how some people do it here, what a waste of really good (and expensive) stuff...especially when they end up vomitting everything out in the gents. Tsk! Tsk!
