Food was very good (and pricy). Service should be improved. The restaurant was more or less empty. The were 3 or 4 server, mostly playing with they I phone. When we finished the meal, we waited for 15 minutes. As nobody came (neither to empty the table, nor for a desert or a coffe) we left finally the restaurant and... More

Their lamb chop & lamb shank are simply delightful! I'd say this place offers 5-star quality food for an equally 5-star price!

Nice place to hang out, people watching from 2nd floor of the square tower restaurant. Not much coctails & wine list from the menu tu choose from. Prices of drinks starts from rm10 onwards. Service was pretty quick & polite. The throne room caught our attention, a must visit place after a meal...lol.

Served western food and has a good selections of fresh fruit juices with health sounded names. The food portion is big as is the prices. However, the irony is that the sauces are a tad too sweet to be healthy! Maybe the chef take recognizance of this anomaly.

The quality of the food served is not on par with the ridiculously overpriced menu. Like seriously way disappointed! This establishment seems like it has seen better days. Don't be fooled just because the restaurant lies within a historical monument, you'll end up regretting it. Seems like there is a growing dissatisfaction with this establishment over time. Another thing I... More

Food was extremely disappointing. Calamari was chewy and soggy. Lobster tastes frozen. Lamb also feels frozen and is untrimmed. Worse of all, the owner/manager(?) is rude/obnoxious; shouting at people outside the restaurant for god knows what. Is also rude to the staff in front of customers. Took half an hour to take our order despite an empty restaurant. TLDR: Low... More

Winner of The Most Innovative Fusion Restaurant Awards by Tourism Malaysia in 2010 which makes us the Best Fusion Restaurant in Malaysia. We have moved to the Old Courthouse where we have taken up a block and tastefully converted into a Fusion restaurant. Exuding an ambiance of tranquility and elegance, the restaurant is without a doubt the perfect place to have romantic dinner with your loved ones, family and joyful meal with friends or special occasions like weddings, anniversary and corporate dinners.
