Back then, the food court was originally designed as the generic type of food court found in a shopping centre; one with something for everyone, especially the family after a day of shopping. In recent years, the retail mix of the locality had changed, the clientele moved away from family groups towards young professionals wanting a conducive environment for a working lunch.

So, it is with these points in mind that the management of Tun Jugah decided to re-vamp the image of their food court - opting for a more contemporary feel and experience. The main design idea aims to invoke the feeling of eating street food; at the market, along the five foot way in the old part of town. Instead of using obvious props to re-create this feel, more intangible elements were employed - the silhouette of the concertina grilles allude to the Chinatown shop fronts while the incandescent light tubes is reminiscent of the market at night. Everyday items usually seen in coffee shops are used in un-usual ways - plastic stools become the ceiling and screens for the dining rooms and enamel crockery from the 70's are used as part of signage and decor.

The furniture has been re-designed as well using simpler and cleaner lines. It has a back-to-basics feel that might remind some patrons of their school days; sitting on benches, sharing stories in "them days" when everything was "better" and the community was more closely knitted. Indeed, there are two oversized tables inviting patrons to share space and perhaps stories and friendship.

With that, this newly designed food court on the third floor of Tun Jugah Mall invites public and shoppers to stay and enjoy the mouth-watering culinary delights of twelve different existing and new food stalls. Among the food retailers are Thai Cuisine, Yong Taufu, Korean Cuisine, the evergreen Sizzling stall, Chicken Rice, Beef Noodle, Claypot, local delights such as Mee & Nasi Goreng, Desserts and many more.
