We visited this restaurant because it was in the hotel we were staying in. We arrived about 8pm to a completely empty restaurant - another couple joined us shortly after. The service was good, as would be expected for a resort of this calibre. What honestly surprised me was just how bad the food was. The prices ranged from RM30... More

Other pepole in my party enjoyed what they had ordered. My particular choice was not a success, and my lemongrass chicken was very mediocre.

We went to a Wagyu promotion and were very disappointed. Overdone and tough. we weren't asked how we liked it but the chef came out and was kind enough to redo it. It still was not like the Wagyu we have had before. The Tepanaki was enjoyed by all who attended.

Not worth it, very basic and uninspired sushi and quite expensive. The sashimi should be a highlight given the surrounding waters but it was small and tasteless

Service was slow. Food presentation was a disappointment. Quality was poor. To top it, the children cutlery set was in terrible condition and should be binned.
