after quite a time we had a wonderful evening at Sarkies Corner. The food was fresh, delicious and the service is always special! Weekdays it is quiet and this is much better for friends who like to have a quiet atmosphere for talking!

I went for a civilised Sunday buffet lunch expecting the usual five star spread and roasts that you find at a Sheraton or Meridien. There were 300+ people in the dining room by 12.30 and not a single roast in sight. I counted fewer than...More

This is Malaysia's version of Raffles. The place oozes class, style and distinction. We do not usually go for buffet type meals but recently had lunch there with friends and had the most fabulous grazing afternoon. A great wine list as well. The service is...More
