A marvellous fine dining experience with the various dishes packing a lot of flavour and beautiful presentation. The service by the DC Team was excellent too. A place to certainly go to, when you can splurge for a special occasion.

This must be one of the best and more exclusive fine dining restaurants in KL. The ambulance, service and food is excellent: when price is no object this is the place to eat and be seen.
