HAVN Restaurant & Bar is located at Kulai, it is renovated from a detached factory thus the restaurant is very spacious inside. Heard from my fren that HAVN is danish which means “Harbour”, the pronunciation is similar to “half”.
A nice place to hang out with friends for gathering or some tea or coffee, or some beer at night. The big space and sufficient tables which cater big capacity will make you feel very comfortable even when there are a lot of ppl in the restaurant.

They have a patio for outdoor dining as well. The place is so huge that it is sufficient for holding huge private event.
Bar and Juice Counter
HAVN serves a very typical menu of western food. I think most of the food eg. something to share, burger and pizza will go well with beer in a lovely evening, so probably I should drop by for a beer in the evening next time.
Eight Secret from the Far East Tea & Cranberry Walnut Cake (photo credit: my lovely BFF)
The tea is a mix flavour of fruity, tinge of bitterness, tinge of sourness, some flower frangrace, well a very exotic tea. Haha! That really depends on individual taste bud whether you will like it, but we kind of like it. The cake is not in the menu, but you can hand pick it near the bar counter.
The Cranberry Walnut Cake is good, the texture is firm. Fruity cranberry flavour with crunchy walnut is one good combination. Most importantly, it is not too sweet, just nice!
Carbonara is one of my favourite pasta (most frequently-ordered pasta whenever I go, so I can guess it can be considered as “favourite, lol!) However the carbonara here is disappointing, it was not so creamy, but watery and flavour was diluted. And I dun really like the sprinkle of cauliflower on top. After finishing my carbonara, there was still a pool of sauce in the plate.
Seafood Bake Rice
Seafood including clams, prawns, squid and etc, the rice is baked with Neapolitan sauce with cheese on top. The sauce is heavy-flavoured, quite salty. As you can see from the picture the rice was drenched in the sauce, thus this dish is disappointing too, it was too salty.
Grilled Chicken Chop (with Black Pepper Sauce)
As from the picture the chicken chop might appear to be abit too dry and hard, but in fact it is just nice. The purple cabbage salad was good. The grilled chicken chop was just an average on cafe standard.
Last but not least, my friend said the pizza there was not bad, so probably worth a try. Anyway this place is still new, they are still improving, the food might get better in the future.
