Visited everyday for breakfast which was great, besides the packed room filled with guests. Figured I’d give lunch a try before departing the hotel. Unfortunately lunch was the worst meal we had during our entire trip in Penang. Service was incredibly slow, and even then...was expecting hot fresh food after the long wait. Food was served lukewarm. Gravy was cold. My order was also incorrect. Waiter didn’t even offer to remedy the situation. Even when attempting something simple like asking for a check, did this take an unusual amount of time. There were less than five tables total in the whole restaurant eating, so it’s even more confusing why the service was so poor, and lackluster food. Would strongly recommend avoiding for lunchMore

SPECIAL Thx to USA and JENSEN. USA提供很好的预订服务和良好沟通。原本定了7点到达。因为塞车的原因迟到一小时。但是对方还是将最好而且不喧闹的座位留给我和我的家人。在我带着孩子而且双手拿着食物的情况下。JENSEN会上前自愿帮我将食物拿到我的座位。好让我可以继续下手去拿其它的食物。哈哈。下次再见 I'LL BE BACK! 😉👍👍👍 MATTHEW LIM 25-04-2022 BUKA PUASA BUFFET DINNER.More

Overall food and hospitality was great! Numerous variety and tasty foods to choose from. The only thing to improve is if could add more air conditioned space/air conditioner.the place that we were seated was a lil bit warm and it is quite uncomfortable for small...kids. Anyhow,everything else was up to satisfaction☺️ Keep up the good work to all staff and hotel!! Definitely will be returning forMore
