“Nice view from restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Reasonably priced for the type and quality of food offered. Nice view of Penang Island and friendly staff. When I was there , there was a pianist rendering nice soothing music . Great place for a quiet chat and candlelight dinner .

“Great Restaurant for special events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Went there for anniversary with my GF. The buffet style appetizer spread was great especially the smoked salmon. Tried the Lobster bisque, it was nice (it tasted and smelled like hokkien mee soup but thicker). Main courses and the desserts were delicious. But it was pricey for me and i would likely return for special events.

“Hidden gem in EQ hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This is definitely the greatest fine dining restaurant in Penang. Best quality of food and services from the server. The environment is romantic and having scenic view to Penang bridge, especially at night. You have to pay more in this restaurant, but you get your return of great value on what you spent, check your wallet before going in especially for those gentleman who wants to give a surprise to your lady.
