Senja, Italian Restaurant @ Saujana Hotel (Subang Jaya)

>> Jun 13, 2010

It has been ages since I updated. I do apologize for that. I had exams after exams, and it was no walk in the park. See? I have a valid excuse.

Anyway, my auntie told me that Senja @ Saujana Hotel serves not bad steaks. So one fine day, I decided to give it a go.


Parking wasn't an issue. It was even free. The place seemed kind of deserted. When I stepped foot into the restaurant, it was kind of empty. I guess the down turn of the economy sure has a pinch on food businesses nowadays.

After placing our orders, we were served olives as well as bread with balsamic and olive oil. It was alright. No biggie.


We ordered a pizza bianca to share. It was basically thin crust (Italian style) pizza dough drizzled with olive oil, garlic and rosemary and then baked till crunchy.

Pizza Bianca

This made a very good snack while waiting for the mains. It was priced at RM25.

Calamari Fritti

That's how its spelt in the menu anyway. The calamari fritters barely made it to the average point. It wasn't crispy and nice on the outside. It came a little soft, although hot. This definitely didn't come close to a thumbs up. It was priced at RM25 as well.

Fresh Pea Risotto with Fresh Clams and Herbs

It was not bad at first bite. The peas gave the rice a nice pleasant flavour. However, I couldn't imagine myself eating spoon after spoon of it. The word 'Jelak' came to mind after 2 spoonful. It was priced at RM38.

Sicilian Seafood Salad with Prawns, Calamari, Snapper & Lobster, freshly shaved fennel, parsley and lemon zest

This dish is a main. Someone was feeling healthy that day. The salad wasn't that great. It was edible, but surely not worth that RM69.

Char Grilled Rib Eye with Tomato Salad

This had to be the best dish that night. It was a slightly better than average steak. The tomato went well with the steak. Although it wasn't exactly expensive beef, it was cooked to medium which I asked for, and it wasn't tough. I was quite happy with it. The steak was RM64.

I heard the desserts here don't stand out in anyway. So we decided to skip dessert.

All in all, I probably will not come back to this place as I can think of many better places around to eat for the same price. However, if you somehow find yourself stuck in Saujana for a conference or meeting or something, you know where you can go to find average food. After all, I still can't seem to find an exceptionally good western food joint in Subang Jaya. Until then.

Pricing: About RM80 per person.
