“Christmas dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

just finished a Christmas dinner in sheela's. We were delighted by the quality of the meals. The chef worked in UK for 30 years and the smoked duck and lamb are excellent. Service was great and owner was very friendly.

“magical setting, delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We almost didn't go to Sheelas for dinner after reading a number of reviews saying that it was full by 7pm and impossible to get a table - but so glad that we did. It was a wonderful experience.

The restaurant is set in a beautiful shady garden, twinkling with candles and fairy lights. We received a really warm welcome when we arrived - and the service was relaxed and professional.

All the Malaysian food we ate was delicious - fresh ingredients and subtle flavours - and when we said we wanted to share all the dishes the waiter automatically brought extra plates to make it easy.

It was such an oasis of calm that we didn't want to rush off after we'd eaten - but they were happy for us to sit and play cards over a cold beer (being entertained by the acrobatics of their portly but surprisingly agile cat!)

Very different from other places in Tengah Beach and thoroughly recommended.

“Lovely Garden Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We nearly missed the place and had to take 2 turns to finally find it. The pathway that leads down to the restaurant looks like an entrance to a secret garden to me, which I find to be very enchanting. Taking the steps down and we found ourselves in a very nice garden with tables and chairs and soft glowing lights everywhere.

The ambiance is very relaxing and romantic. They were short on staff that evening but nonetheless their service was very good. I especially find the owner Ms. Sheela to be a very good host. She is very friendly and warm.

The food was also good. Not absolutely deliciously good but it was okay for us. Our party of four tried both their Asian and Western selections and overall we enjoyed our evening here. Would definitely recommend to go here for a quiet and relaxing evening.

“Awesome garden dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Dinner experience was great in this nice garden setting. Local food from the Malaysian's Kitchen menu are tasty and delicious. We ordered the sambal tumis squid and lemak chili api chicken and we were very happy with our food. Price wise is affordable. The oxygen and garden experience are free so be patient for your good food to be served :))))
