Well, as my title has mention it, I was here for a wedding banquet. It was held in the ballroom with a cocktail reception at the garden. First of all, the lift at the car park was out of service. Thus, we had to use the staircase, with our heels and beautiful gowns and considering there are some folks with tongkat. Luckily my car was parked at level 1. Imagine my car is parked at level 3?
Banquet service was attentive. What we requested was delivered promptly. Air condition was a little warm. Probably I was sitting at the far end corner of the ballroom. Food wise was a little let down and was not fantastic. It was an eight course wedding dinner. This is my first time stepping into E&O and I hear a lot about the hotel. So, I thought the food must be awesome too. It was not. Quality was moderate and taste is fair. Just so so. The food is not comparable to the status of the hotel.
