Had breakfast in The Pomelo. The spread wasn't impressive (compared to other five-star properties). However, the food is freshly-prepared and delicious. Service is excellent.

Most of all our meals during our stay at The Banjaran were from The Pomelo - named after the wide citrus fruit typical to the place. The service is excellent and courteous and the food is delicious - varied without confusing diners with too much choice.

It was our breakfast and lunch place during our stay. Very nice setup and I loved the breakfast. There was a juice bar for any combination I wanted. Very good yogurt spread and a good blend of western and local. The roti canai was minute steak was good. Soup during lunch was also good. Oxtail soup was the local version.... More

A little way out of Ipoh and not the place you would stumble across by accident, but it's absolutely worth it. A beautiful setting amongst ponds and water features, very good food from a range of cuisines, wine will set you back but otherwise, very good value for what it is. Don't miss it, a really special experience!

An all day restaurant at The Banjaran Retreat. First of all, staff are very friendly and remember you from your previous stay. Ms Vitthia even remembered our favorite table. Breakfast: you choose your main from the a-la-carte menu. The Hong Kong style porridge is quite good. Some people say that Nasi Lemak is superb. Did not try it, so cannot... More

There was a butler who stayed throughout the dinner just for us and he is simply give the best service. The food was spectacular and delicious! It was the most romantic night... More
