This is one of those restaurants that serve great food but are empty for some reason. The Malaysian salad with peanuts was delicious and so was the Malaysian chicken curry dish. Great service.

Only had breakfast there as it was on the lower floor of our hotel. Food was good. Could have had more selection as it was a buffet. But there menu does feature authentic Malaysian food for lunch and dinner.

I visited this restuarant today with my mum and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the portions are huge and the food is rich in flavour and tastes amazing. We are definitely coming back.

My mum and I got a voucher for a three course menu and a bottle of prosecco, we decided to go for lunch. The restaurant is in the basement of the hotel, when we left the lift they were painting the walls and it was quite difficult to maneuver, in any case we made our way and was seated. We were the only people in there at first, a couple more tables as our serving went on but very quite. Not much ambiance, music every now and then played on the speakers. The food was nice, huge portions. Service was fine. Probably wouldn't go back but was fine. Difficult to say about value, we paid £40 for three courses and a bottle of prosecco thanks to the voucher.

Had breakfast included with my room plan. Not only was it inedible, but it bordered on cuisine one would find in an internment facility.
