Great selection - including an ice cream bar.... loved it. Cooked to order eggs, Japanese, Malay, Pho bar, salad, fruit bar, juice bar and deserts. Suggest you come here even if you have Rasa Wing access, much better selection!

Hi. It's better to check with the cafe. Gluten free options are relatively new in Malaysia. It would be good to email your hotel and arrange with the chef on your specialized menu. Do check out Real Food Cafe in Straits Quay... More
