It has been 99% of the time that this restaurant crowned no.1 in trip advisor. However after 10 years return to this restaurant I found it average only. Make a reservation prior a week before my dinner. Quite a challenge to find a carpark lot there. The restaurant do reserved for the patrons, but if most of them drove will... More

In my opinion, this restaurant is overrated as I can certainly find the same dish for almost half the price but better in quality and taste. The price is not clear, and for a fancy restaurant I expected more out of it. Although the portion for the ordered steak is more than enough but it does not compensate for the... More

We found the restaurant on the Internet and checked previous reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed. This restaurant had a lovely friendly ambience and all the staff were extremely helpful and attentive. The extensive menu left us with so many choices it was difficult to decide. What we both ordered and all courses were different was excellent. If... More

A few comments: 1. The steak was priced per 100 g. However, the steak given contained a lot of tendons which we had to cut out (not eaten). This was a disappointment for the top 10 restaurants (TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence) in Johor Bahru. 牛排的价钱是看重量算钱的。虽然如此,但是由于牛排里很多牛筋,我们得要切掉(不吃),这个对于新山前 10 名餐厅(获得 TripAdvisor 奖状者)可是一个失望。 2. The prices were not clear, the numbers on the menu... More

We regularly go to this place and it's never disappointed us, both in terms of the food and the service which is unfailingly lovely and helpful. My children who are not the easiest to please love this place...worth a visit

Good, but the night I went service was slow and the food those good was limited in choice, I thought it had been better in the past. I like the place, the patrons and the staff and will continue to go there, hoping it was just one of those off days
