Food options go from authentic Malaysian cuisine (Wisma Genting) to Japanese (Isetan Sushi) to Western (Lemon Garden Café) to Italian, Chinese Halal and even Thai Halal. Shopping needs are satisfied as well by malls such as the Life Centre, the Maju junction mall and The Central Plaza. Truly a reflection of the KL’s modern front.
