Swedish restaurant IKEA review

Doing a long ride (bicycle) to the Mall of Asia, we went to IKEA, a shopping center just to have a taste of their famous meatballs so let's see if it's worth the visit.

The Swedish Restaurant inside the IKEA building beside MOA (Mall of Asia) is located on the 4th floor. It is the official food place of the brand that serves some Swedish cuisines including the coveted meatballs.

If you see this "Hey" wall upon entering, you are on the right building.

The dining experience here is quite unique as you have to follow their process which is like this:

1. Get a food cart & food trays where you'll place your orders

2. Select your order and ask for it from the counter
Cups are provided here too where everything is bottomless

The beverage and condiments area are just in between the dining area and where you'll order so visit them accordingly.

Once everything is settled, simply go for an empty table with your food trays along and start the exciting part, eating! Haha!

At that time, we ordered the following food items:

Villy initially wanted to try their chicken wings but I said "let's just order after we finish our initial plates". We both ordered rice and availed of their bottomless drinks which are all super affordable! I never thought that an international brand would offer such a service at that kind of rate so I am pretty much amused!

And since we went here on a weekday, there was no queue making our dining experience very comfortable.

Since I got the chance to eat the US version of this before, I can say that the taste is literally the same - delicious! Everything here is the identical version of what they have there in the United States so we enjoyed everything here. The mashed potato, spaghetti, fries, and even the broccoli taste good! Villy managed to convince me to try the broccoli and I was really impressed. It had a fresh taste and it was not that bitter.

With how affordable the price of the rice is, I won't hesitate to order another if I had to. For the drinks, I ended it having my 3rd/4th cup. Haha! We were already feeling full since we swept everything clean including the gravy. Lol. This is by far one of the most worth-it dine-in experiences we had doing bicycle trips. And I think this won't be the last. We will go back for that chicken wings, almond cake, plant-based cutlet, and those plant balls.

Let's schedule our next!

  1. I haven't been to any IKEA shops even here in Melbourne (coz we don't have to), however, it is interesting to know the hype about their meatballs. To be fair, those size of meatballs are decently good. Hope you enjoyed it!

  2. I’ve been wanting to try out ikea’s meatballs for a while already. Like everyone’s been talking about them! Wish i could be in the area some time

  3. Everything is delicious
