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!

We ate at the Sands restaurant in order to see Tanjung Rhu beach, but were staying at a different resort in the NW part of the island. The food was above average, but was diverse and reasonably priced given the location. Service within the restaurant was very good. If you plan to eat here while not staying at the resort,... More
