First, its not international standard as the food sucks omg its so bad
Angus beef but tasted like overcooked beef
Desserts and ice creams and tea areas are ok
But the meet and sushi is just YUCK
My prawn smells like it is kept for long time coz the second i tried peeling it
Its smushy and smells so badly i have to run to toilet to wash my hands
I told myself it is ok if food is bad and i will opt for environment but i was SO WRONG
the whole place are noisy like a market with people rushing left to right front and back to grab FREE food kinda situation
Look at the pictures omg
And worst, it was a special date and occasion for me and i came seeing reviews and pictures but i was so wrong
I see nothing out the glass
I went to so many high ground restaurant and this is the worst view i had
No to food
No to view at night (maybe evening before sunset is better, i dont know)
No to all the ppl thinking u will get to spend a quiet and classy night out
Sigh

We went here for star glazing with dinner, it's a worth combination and not too much.
I love the buffet, they provide for VG people and plenty of sashimi salmon. Really great place to hang with a great view.
The dessert that must try it's teppanyaki ice cream with fruits.
They have king prawn and a lot of salad choices.
Worth the price because we have all the embiance and excellent service.
Recommend place if you r in town for lunch or breakfast.
