The Galleria @ Kotayara is a newly completely refurbished mall in JB town (Johor Bahru CBD). It is across the street from the Sikh Gurdwara Sahib and Sri Raja Mariamman temple and (on the other side of the mall) Bangunan Sultan Ibrahim.
The food court has been open for a few months but the rest of mall is still mainly empty. Still the food court already has almost no seating (I went at lunchtime this time but another time, even in the middle of the afternoon the food court was very full).
The food stalls (probably about 15 with mainly Malaysian dishes) offer very good food at great prices (the two times I have tried it so far anyway). Main courses are about 5-8 MYR ($2-3 US).
My meal was quite good. I think this was Nasi Goring Paprik (but I can’t remember for sure).
The mall looks like it will open soon but as of 2 weeks ago there were almost no non-food stores open (there were some pre-Christmas temporary stalls open). It looks very nice – the previous incarnation of the mall was not very appealing.
There is also another section of the mall.
