[Review] Indulge, TGV 1 Utama

Are you having holidays right now? Are you suffering from stress? Or are you looking for places for first date or anniversary? If yes, then you must not miss out this blog post and make sure stay till the end!

Thanks to the Butterfly Project, I was invited to the Butterfly Girls Night Out experience with TGV Indulge together with other sponsors, 123 Cheese Photobooth and Muse by Watsons. If you're wondering, TGV Indulge is actually the first luxury cinema in TGV 1 Utama.

"As one of Malaysia's first and largest multiplex cinema operators, TGV Cinemas is constantly striving to redefine the cinema experience for our customers, regardless the age or movie preference. Indulge, therefore is TGV Cinemas' pioneering foray at combining fine-dining and cinema entertainment creating a luxury cinema experience." said the Chief Executive Officer of TGV Cinemas.

With its own private ticketing counter, lounge and dining area and also two exclusive cinema halls which is fitted with reclining chairs and personalized call-waiter-service that can accommodate 32 and 40 pax respectively, Indulge is TGV Cinema's latest unique cinema concept that stands apart from all its current chain of locations and halls.

I was welcomed by soft jazzy tones when I enter the lounge. The rich purple and silver facade provides a distinct element of class to the lounge and dining area as I was greeted by their staffs and Butterfly volunteer team.

As I've mentioned, TGV Indulge has its own dining area and we're so lucky that we get to try out their 10-course fine dining. I was told that their in-house chefs have collectively more than 40 years of experience in Asian and Western fusion cooking hence I was really looking forward to try out their signature dishes. No doubt the appearance already captured my heart, but does it tastes as good as how it looks? :P

Pumpkin Salad @ RM15

Smoked Duck Salad @ RM15

Lamb Koftas @ RM14

Stuffed Potato Skins @ RM12

Grilled Salmon @ RM28

Grilled Lamb Rack @ RM28

Cajun Chicken @ RM20

Nutty Tortilla Banana @ RM12

Panna Cotta @ RM12

I gotta say that their foods do live up to expectation in relation to their price range from RM8-RM30 each. Of course you can't compare it with other fine dining restaurants but it is good enough for a cinema's dining hall. My favourites would be stuffed potato skins, grilled salmon, cajun chicken and nutty tortilla banana. The salads are lack of seasoning, lamb koftas was a bit too dry and salty while the grilled lamb rack was too hard for my preference. I'm not a professional food blogger and it's just my two cents based on my personal preference.

Since there are 10-course meals, bite-sized portion of foods were served so that we get to try out every single type without getting bloated.

With my lovely ladies of the night: (From L-R) Ker Chi, Ker Yi, Miriam and yours truly. It feels great to catch up with my long lost buddies :)

After enjoying our luxurious dinner, we were ushered to the movie hall for "Lucy". I really love how they decorate the whole area and we've stopped halfway for a few times to take pictures :P

I got really excited when I enter the movie hall. That reclining chair, cozy blanket and personalized call-waiter-button, I wish I can watch movie here everyday! Girls, now you can dress in your best outfit to enjoy dinner with your loved one and watch movie after that without worrying that you will freeze inside the movie hall. :P

If you're rushing and no time to enjoy dinner at the dining area, you're allowed to order and eat in the cinema hall too. Food will be served in a bento box and cut into smaller pieces, so you don't need to worry about cutting your steak inside the cinema heh.

Overall, it was such a luxurious experience with TGV Indulge, from food to the seats and services etc. Not only for the discerning cinema-goer, TGV Indulge is also suitable for private and corporate functions with catering provided regardless with or without a movie screening. Definitely one of the top notch luxury cinema in Malaysia!

TGV Indulge is opened from 11AM with tickets priced at RM45 each (meals not included). For more information about Indulge and to book tickets, please log on to or via TGV Cinemas' Movie Buddy app which is available on the Apple App and Google Play store.
