Recently, i flip through the usual monthly Media Focus Magazine and i spotted this new restaurant which attracts me to check out on their Facebook page. Exhilarated when i have the chance to review this restaurant. Thanks to Mr. David for extending this invitation and spending this evening with us.

Mr. David share with us that I Know Pasta is the master franchise and they are going to expand and getting more franchise to work with them area covering almost all Klang Valley and Selangor - Setia Alam, Kepong, Subang, Puchong, Sri Petaling, Petaling Jaya, Damansara and more to go. I Know Pasta" is originally franchised from Taiwan. Established in year 2001, I Know Pasta have 18 outlet in Taipei, Taiwan. Famous and strong brand. 



David , the co-owner is the first person that brings this cuisines to Malaysia and he visited Taiwan often to get their staff trained over there and get their new menu as well from time to time.The setting of the whole restaurant and the comprehensive menu is all from Taiwan and they provide consistently high quality pasta & outstanding customer service.The Special sauce  and main recipe all is park at this sentral kitchen in Setapak and will be distribute and supply to other outlets. I Know Pasta have started it's business in March 2013 , 6 months located at the Starparc, Danau Kota, but was getting low response as that place is yet to developed and less crowd. In Oct 2013, they move to this happening place PV128, and getting more students and families customers who dines in.

The whole idea that he wanted to share is ' I Know Pasta' is the place we can have delicious pasta with very affordable price and dine in with a comfortable environment.

The main principle that he always think is being 'Generous and Sincere'. I very much agree with him as serving customer without terms is the best practice to gain customer loyalty." honestly is the best policy"..

I always thought pasta is meant to be Western food and in my mind before i touch my foot into this restaurant,,i still be thinking this is gonna be an expensive meal and classy looking place for pasta. Surprisingly, the most expensive pasta is only RM 16.90!! Unbelievable price!!

The restaurant is designed with the elements of wood.

 The background story as of when ' I Know Pasta' is born...


Homey and comfortable seating . Great ambiance with quiet and peaceful place to dine in with family or friends to chill out here.


Comfy sofa seats with wide dining area

 Apple with Celery  and Orange with celery RM 6.90 - Healthy and refreshing drinks.. Fresh brewed apple and orange juice with no added sugar.


I love this Caesar salad. Impressive presentation of the food. Not the usual Caesar salad that some places used to tossed everything. This Caesar salad is beautifully plated - served with fresh vegetables, almonds, and cheese. Crunchy and great appetizer to start with, savour this salad with the special sauce. RM 6.90.
Cream of Sweet Corn Soup  RM 3.90
Combination of the sweet Niblet, bacon, parsley, pepper, milk, cream, salt  and sugar..

 The corn soup is a tummy warming meal and  I like that soup which is not too diluted and the sweet corn enhance the taste of the soup Perfect comfort food.

Robust Cream of Mushroom Soup  RM 5.90
The soup is served with charitable amount of mushroom (finely chopped into smaller portion) and layered with few pieces of breads..

The mushroom soup is very thick, creamy, full of the good stuff of the fresh mushroom inside. . Aromatic and  flavourful soup. Highly Recommended!!


Seafood Tomato Soup RM 9.90


Spaghetti Carbonara RM 14.90 - Served with 190 grams pasta with smoked Bacon, string bean, egg , butter, cheese powder, olive oil, and tossed with thick creamy carbonara. Lots of cheese in the middle, and each pasta is coated evenly with the cheese. There are three types of pasta that can be choose  - penne conchiglie and spaghetti.

This spaghetti was pretty good, savoury and delicious.. Satisfy my palate...

Spaghetti with Squid in Sepia Ink Sauce RM 16.90 .Squid ink, ink sac, onions garlic, chili, and olive oil ,This is house special pasta and you must not miss this...  My first try for this squid pasta and it is also my new addiction . The intense black color and strong iodine taste makes this pasta so special. The chilli spiciness are much milder and a great combination with it. Generous portion of the fresh squid as shown and savour this meal while still hot. I do worried the black ink will  stink onto my teeth ..but who cares..This signature dish is extremely delicious!!

You will never get such portion of the pasta in any other place who can give you for 190 grams . Usually, they only give standard of 150 grams of pasta

The coolest looking pasta

Tiramisu RM 7.90

Tiramisu is all time favourite especially for girls.. Enchanting and it was really a catch after the heavy meal. Simply awesome creamy tiramisu -  The whole cup is coated with cheese and biscuit layer, ( very rich inner layer i can taste it ) I don't even felt like having the very thick cheese, just enjoy the mouthful Tiramisu.

Pudding RM4.90-   Simple steamed egg pudding, not too sweet, can be eaten warm or chilled  Firm and smooth surface with the brittle sugar crackly melted ..Egg Pudding is a good source of protein and the whole pudding is all made from eggs..Delectable and good choices of desserts to enjoy.

The menu is pretty well organize with tempting dishes





Coffees and fresh juices at a very reasonable prices

Original series of Taiwan signature drinks

New menu will be coming up next year..stay tuned..
Captivating cakes selection - American Classic Cheese RM 8.50

American Cranberry Mille Crepe RM 9.50 each piece
