We are staying at the hotel of which this restaurant is part, so since there's nothing else around within walking distance, we had to eat here. Waiters are friendly enough but they just don't understand what you order or what you ask them, which after a while it gets very frustrating. Food is just ok, nothing spectacular and definitely overpriced...I'm... More

The staff at the sands were so tentative. We requested, if they could prepare traditional Malay food and they had no hesitations, and I must say that it was amazing! @instabuilt

i would not say it was very good but good enough. however i found the prices too high and portion small. maybe they could improve on their serving portion to match their prices.

We visited this restaurant when we hired a car for the day as it is a bit of a drive from the main tourist spot of Pantai Cenang. Although we didn't eat here, we stayed for a few hours as the cocktails were so good and the same price (surprising for 5 star resort) as cocktails elsewhere on the island... More

The quality and range of food from all around Asia that is presented at Sands restaurant is quite outstanding. They're also very flexible with the dishes and will adapt them willingly to suit vegetarian diets or other personal tastes. The staff at Sands are also first-class. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed at Sands!
