We were staying at the Sofitel and tried the Governors Grill on a couple of occasions. The local noodle soup and the Restaurants signature dishes are excellent. You can also order western food as well. Lovely location and excellent customer service.

There is only one restaurant in the hotel, so they serve day and night. In the morning, the breakfast was good. The bread basket that was served at the table tasted very good. For dinner, you should try buffalo platter.

We love having lunch at the Governor's Grill as it caters for all our tastes. Favourites so far have been the chicken fried rice, pho chicken soup, the pasta and the Governor's burger. The service is superb and the staff are friendly.More
