“Nice experience with a great view”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

I have been to TemptAsian on many occasions since it opened and have experienced their highs and lows.
On this occasion, being July, I had booked a table on the roof from where you get the most amazing panoramic view of Valleta and beyond. Unfortunately, it was very windy and being 9 floors up would have made uncomfortable dining. However, the staff seated us at a table in the window, so we had a great view anyway.
The waiting staff were all lovely being extremely efficient, attentive and friendly.
We chose duck with pancakes etc to start and was a bit disappointed that it wasn't shredded crispy duck more sliced, possibly microwaved duck. I found it a bit unpalatable.
To follow we had King Prawns in a green Thai curry sauce, they were delicious, along with crispy chilli beef, yum. As a side we had Pad Thai.
All the food was delicious but was delivered straight after our starter and may have been sitting under the lights as it wasn't piping hot, just warm.
Next time I go, I will order my main once I have finished the starter.

We finished with drinks outside by the infinity pool with fireworks as it was a festa night.
We had a great evening.

“Nice view, ok food”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Temptasian lies on the top floow of palace hotel, with a spectacular seaview, it is worth a visit for the location. We ate there twice during our trip. The food varied a bit in quality, some of it was very good, for example the vietnamese spring rolls, other things were less good (the duck I ordered was a bit on the dry side). The staff were friendly and helpful, but for the price range I had expected a bit more consistent food quality.

“Stunning Views and Amazing Food”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

I had only ever had sushi from Temptasian previously, and only as a take away. However, I dined here last week with colleagues and it was stunning. On this particular day, they had an Indian set menu as well as their usual menu and everything that came out on the table was very carefully prepared, the waiting staff took the time to explain what was what and were generally very attentive. I was so full that I couldn't finish my meal, which made me sad.. Can't wait to dine here again! :)
