My friend and I chose the menu of the month, being the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival. I was delighted with the 7- course dinner. First came the amuse bouche which is so delicately presented. More like eating art! The waiters were generous with the assortment of bread served warm together with butter, black and green olive paste. The main course... More

But it was one of the... More

Nice dining experience with a polished up sequence of service that is beautifully executed. Live music in the lounge really helps to set the mood before and after

One of the best restaurants in the highlands, already my fourth visit since i only visit the highlands once a year. Service here is appropriate for a restaurant of its class, not beyond my expectations due to slight inconsistencies in attentiveness and friendliness, but good enough. The courses always start with their assortment of delicious, warm bread which we tend... More

If you like to relax, have a few drinks and some snacks this is THE place to be. Food is mediocre at best (I don't know who is the chef but he / she definitely does NOT know how to make pasta). The only snack I found to be worth a mention (yup, tried it all) is the Foie Gras.... More

I just finish my appetizer and waiting my main course coming.... Write a review during the break. Very good restaurant, you will not be disappointed by the food. Signature dishes are recommend. Wine is super, might be little bit expensive but compare to what you get, fair enough

Good service, good food. Catered well to a group of 11, but then we were in a 'private' glass room surrounded by bottles of wine. If you like nouvelle cuisine, the consensus was that the food was well prepared and presented in good portions. There is a bar and lounge area for before and after your meal, though there is... More

Great service, fair value and food, in the money. A must try while might be worth it the hours drive taking into account petrol and toll from KL.
