From where can I start??The moment you walk through the door it does not look like a very inviting place,the old decor,worn furniture,the lack of a greeting ,up until you order your food from worn and tattered menu's.Then when the food is delivered,which took quite some time,it had to be sent back as it was cold (supposed to be hot food).Not happy with the service,the quality and quantity of food and the prices.The interior of the establishment needs a serious refurbishment which may improve the atmosphere of the place.Definitely not a place we will be returning to in the foreseeable future.

We ended up in this restaurant for breakfast because it looked nice and "western" from the outside, and we were craving for a western breakfast. Bad decision... the menu is very limited. we asked for a sandwich, some fresh fruits and pancakes. It took for ever to be served (not because the place was crowed), the food was not tasty at all, the portions were so small... AND, when asking the bill, we found out that they had included expensive dishes we didn't ask for. When we complained, the staff just started to laugh... they repeated the bill 3 times, and the 3 times it was uncorrected, always ended up adding more expenses. We finally payed the correct amount, and left with the feeling that we just had the worst breakfast in Sabah. Don't go.

Way below expectation. Visited for the first time, took way longer than needed from taking order to getting the bill, food was not great, there were houseflies which is not acceptable for an indoor cafe/restaurant.

The aircon did not seem to work as it was rather stuffy in there. The Asian cuisine was not as good as those offered at the harbor and Boss Cafe though more expensive.

I think the menu is just for show. The staff feel free to substitute for something which is not available or maybe it was just us. Food is good though and the Aircon very welcome especially as location is in the centre of the city.
