“Disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Went here for a special meal with the family and came away slightly disappointed. In the end I think we chose the wrong meal. The setting and service were first class but we ordered the seafood platter which would have been excellent except mush of the food was covered in a cheese sauce, not the ideal covering for lobster. If we go again would try the curries maybe.

“Reasonable prices, good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Located up the quieter end of batu ferrenghii, they offered a good variety of food, with a large menu choice. Thai green curry gave a big kick of chilli. Food was delicious and well priced. Good atmosphere.

“Excellent setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Good food in outstanding surroundings. Erratic service and staff seemed to have little knowledge of the dishes on the menu.

“Expensive and poor taste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Penang is fame for food, but unfortunely many restaurants food are tastless or salty. 1 plate of Char keow tuey is around RM17.90 small serving and moderate taste. Tandoori pizza cost around RM27.90. The most horrible pizza ever. Very salty and u can count the chicken meat on pizza. There were 8 slices of pizza and 5 bits of chicken meat here & there on pizza. Nothing else. Chicken briyani cost RM26.90 and was not nice at all.

“Varied menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Impeccable service, exceptional food, and all in a setting that will delight.
OK, not the the cheapest, but you are not there to eat 'cheap'!
Particularly enjoyed the Chefs Amuse Bouche between courses.
Sit in the open air courtyard by the waterfall (weather permitting) if available, you may have to ask as these are not always offered.
We enjoyed it so much the first time that we returned a couple of days later, and the result was just as good and every plateful was as pretty as a picture.
