Disappointed!!!!!! This is the first time ever I gave such bad review. We reserved 3pm for hightea, arrived exactly 3pm but they were not even ready to open for business. After 5 or 10mins, they only open. Ok nvm. We waited for 30mins for our...hightea that have yet serve and asked the waiter, and the waiter reply "sorry, kitchen is busy". Wait what?!?!?? This is the most stupid reason I had ever heard. Service is bad too. So, while waiting for our hightea, we go around snapping pic, selfie, wefie, blablabla. 4.15pm our hightea still not ready. So, mood spoil and angry, we demand to cancel. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, IMMEDIATELY THEY SERVE THE HIGHTEA!!!!!!!! Reserved 3pm but 430pm only serve hightea. HAIIIYAAA What is the PURPOSE of having reservation then???? I don't know how they got so many good reviews on FB, google and even here. Thought of giving second chance for the food but again disappointed. Taste so-so only some of them are tasteless. WELL, I rather have hightea at some simple cafe than having it here. Why pay so much for bad service,bad food, and bad mood?!? "Grand HighTea" some more. Yea, first time and last time. :)More

The way how they handle customer issues is bad even in the end got appologize to us but our special day is get ruined. Not worth for us to spend almost a thousand to get this. Food is OK, don't have so much time to...enjoy the good environment as what we expect.More

Located in 18th floor of Sunrise Gurney, this magnificent fine dining restaurant offers a fantastic ambience and mouth watering international quality savoured menu, combined with a majestic view of Penang Island. The 7 coursed and 4 coursed fine dining offers scintillating tang to the very...last taste bud. Very hospitable staffs, especially special mention to Miss Shafinaz for attending to us with true dedication. A 5 star fine dine of course!More
