Damansara Heights (also known as Bukit Damansara) — a booming hub for offices, eateries, and bars is located right by upscale Bangsar. The pace here is a little slower compared to its flashier neighbour thanks to its large residential area but that in itself is an opportunity in waiting.
Indeed, there’s definitely no shortage of restaurants and cafes here. This though begs the question: where to eat in Damansara Heights?
Adding to the growing hub is DC Mall that just opened a couple of months ago. Modern American cuisine restaurant, Birch and Thai fine dining, Erawan is located in this mall. If dining at a mall is not your thing, take a look at Jalan Medan Setia where the likes of Huckleberry Food & Fare, GravyBaby, Flour and many more are based here.
Damansara Heights may be go by at a slower pace but you’ll get to find different cuisines of different price points in just this area alone. To help solve your dilemma, here’s our restaurant guide on where to eat in Damansara Heights.
