A standalone Ikea restaurant has been unveiled in a neighbourhood near you at IPC Shopping Centre, Mutiara Damansara.
Since it first launched in Malaysia back in 1996, the Swedish retailer has successfully became the most popular one-stop furniture destination in this country, where loyal customers were given the opportunity to discover the amazing Swedish dishes served at the Ikea Canteen.
In fact, a research shows that 30% of customers travel to Ikea stores just to eat (Me! I’m that 30%), despite the fact that the stores are often located away from the city centre.

FIKA TIME: First newly opened IKEA cafe in IKEA mutiara damansara (not the same as IKEA restaurant that serves the meatball etc). As expected, the interior decor was of typical Scandinavian: minimal and practical, allowing natural light to stream through. Pricing is very affordable for a decent cup of coffee, starting from RM5.90, served along with a wide choice of pastries and cakes. . . 12oz latte RM7.90 + salmon mayo croissant RM5.90. . . #ikeacafe #ikea #fika #swedish #ikeamutiaradamansara #ikeacoffee #teatime #fikatime #cafe #malaysiancafe #IPC #coffeetime #coffee #croissant #salmonmayocroissant #french #pastries #foodgasm #instafood #swedishinterior #ikeadesign #scandanavian
Thus, opening a standalone Ikea restaurant that operates separately from their big-box furniture stores seem like a great move. Who knows, perhaps, sometime in the future, customers will be saying, “Ikea is a great place to eat – and, by the way, they also sell some furniture”.
Guests will be able to find their favourite Ikea dishes at the newly opened cafe, including a hot plate of Swedish meatballs, kids’ pasta or chicken tenders, salmon mayo croissant, coffee, pastries and more.
