I never been to Japan till now, and when i was introduced to the concept of Maid Cafe which is a very popular concept restaurant founded in Japan, I was curious what is it actually. I have chance to experience it at Tenshi No Cafe, e@Curve. Being a sub-category of theme restaurants, a Maid Cafe features waitresses who are dressed like maids, in particular, French maids. Their job is to act as servants to please the patrons of the restaurants, also known as their masters/mistresses. Here, you'll be treated as it's your own home, with the maids at their disposal. Now, you wonder how the maids looks like, you'll be surprised !

We had the opportunity to visit Tenshi No Cafe one night, and were pleasantly surprised by the kind and warm attention given by the 3 cute maids on duty that night. The services offered:
- A Polaroid photo with the maid of your choice – RM8
- A round of conventional games / PlayStation 3 with the maid (max. 5 minutes) – RM5
- Spoon-feed by the maid – RM3 for 3 spoons
So does this tickle your fancy? The environment of the restaurant was largely pink and white, with a spacious area decorated with lots of Japanese figurines.

The Banana Milk Shake was my favourite, with a pleasant aroma of bananas and refreshing to drink. If you’re adventurous enough, you could even ask for it to be mixed with Coke for a different effect.
Banana Milk Shake (RM9.50) - RECOMMENDED

One of their daily specialties is the Kawaii Bento-Bento, which is a box of cutely arranged bento with different selection every night.

As mentioned before, one of the service the performing a charm to your food. One of our dinner mates, Thomas volunteered to be fed by the maids.

Una Toji Rice and Katsu Curry Rice which I personally preferred the Unagi rice which was served piping hot on a bed of eggs and rice. Unagi is always a safe choice :-)

The Mango Curry Rice was pretty interesting though, with cubes of sweet mango on top. Combining that with the curry was a balance of spicy and sweet. However, I feel the curry aroma was not strong enough. It tasted tad peppery and salty.

It was overall a pretty eye-opening experience, not so much on the food, but the whole idea of being served by cute-looking maids who provided more than just food.
A good place to cheer yourself when you're lonely :D
