Myself, wife and 2 teenage daughters had dinner at the restaurant on Christmas day 2012.
We arrived early at the E&O hotel and when we enquired as to the location of the 1885 restaurant were escorted there by one of the Reception staff. The restaurant wasn't ready for us so he took us on a guided tour of this historic hotel. Now thats service!
The Dinner was as you would expect from a high end restaurant and was excellent but not exceptional. Staff were attentive without being intrusive and the Christmas Carrols sung by the children was delightfull and put a smile on every face. The asian Father Christmas in full kit was an interesting asside. The bill was expensive by Malay standards but about half what you would pay in Australia. All in all a pleasant nigh was had by all.
