Worth the visit

To keep it short, the place is worth the visit. Even more so if u are staying there. Most of the grand hotel cafes and restaurants are decently priced. Very nice service staff and food tastes pretty good.

We went for a late lunch at the place and ordered Au-Gratin. The taste was good and the chef was courteous enough to answer our queries. A good place for varied choice of food.

Wow! extremely impressed with the tasty food they served at the Magnolia coffee shop at the Grand Hotel! 4 of us had late dinner here and we ordered the nasigoreng & lamprais and wasn't at all disappointing. Not only the food arrived quickly but tasted extremely good!

Terrific coffee. Upmarket but very casual with very reasonable prices. Good snacks/light meals too. Magazines to read and free, fast WiFi.

My friend had rice and curry with chicken. Both pieces of chicken tasted different from each other. Remnants from a different kind of dish (roast) perhaps. It was quite late for lunch so possibly they had to improvise. Tasted good though. I had a Caesar salad which was quite good.

Open kitchen with chefs in tall white hats, and food was pleasant with a reasonable choice. Is a good choice if you just want a lighter meal. They serve a complimentary bread basket as well which was welcome.

Having seen the Magnolia get busy later in the evening we opted to eat about 7pm which proved to be a wise move as soon after we arrived it was full and people were putting their names on a waiting list. There was a pleasant atmosphere and we shared a... More
