Food Review – Thyme out @ Chilli Vanilla


Thyme out @ Chilli Vanilla located at Kolam Plaza, Hilltop is the 2nd branch of Chilli Vanilla. We pass Chilli Vanilla all the time at Kota Kinabalu city centre but somehow we never visited the outlet before. Thyme out @ Chilli Vanilla is very near to our office and we drop by during the lunch to see whats on their menu.

We know Chilli Vanilla serve hungarian food but the menu is quite extensive and a good mix of Asian and western food selections.
