(Rate: 1/5)

Grilled Fish with Creamy Mushroom Sauce
The Grilled Fish (dory fish) is served with mushroom sauce, toast bread, coleslaw and french fries. Overall the grilled fish are taste fine with the creamy mushroom, just that the fish smell itself are quite strong. 
(Rate: 2.5/5)

Grilled Chicken with Mango Salsa
The Grilled Chicken is served with mango salsa, toast bread, coleslaw and french fries. However, the mango is not ripe enough and the mango sauce are quite sweet. (possible from the mango syrup / concentrate) The chicken itself is not the marinated type, so it is slightly tasteless. But, the food portion size are fine.

Ama Dessert is currently closed for business.

Ama Dessert is located at Pan Palace Plaza (Lip Sin Garden), Sungai Nibong, the same building as the Sunshine Market. Ama Dessert is serving for variety of Western cuisine, salad, sandwich, Chinese cuisine and also desserts.

There is limited seat inside their cafe, however they also provide few dining place in front of their cafe. The design of Ama Dessert is very simple, yet still able to provide a cozy environment.

Pan-Fried Cajun Spice Fish with Mango Salsa (RM 13.50 Nett)
The Pan-Fried Cajun Spice Fish with Mango Salsa is served with grill potato with brown sauce and water-boiled cauliflower. The pan-fried dory fish here does not have the bad smell at all, I think they are brilliant in using spices to cover the fish bad smell. The mango salsa sauce is cooked with finely chopped onion, tomato, chilies and ripe mango, and with hint of spices too. This dish definitely has the combination of sour and spicy taste. The food portion size are slightly small to me, but that is the good thing too, at least I can still try out their dessert.
(Rate: 4.5/5)

Creamy Peanut Soup (RM 4 Nett)
With some spaces still available in my stomach, so I have decided to fill it up with my favorite creamy peanut soup.

It is really creamy and there are some whole peanuts too. The creamy peanut soup are taste good and not so sweet too.
