Anniversary dinner overlooking the pool with evening lighting so romantic with a full wine list and explanation of menu added a special touch to our Sutera Resort Malaysian experience - Thankyou to their staff

氣氛非常好的一家餐廳,從前菜主菜到甜點都非常精緻好吃,服務人員也很親切,還有現場演唱,生日還主動送上蛋糕,價格也非常平實,絕對會再來! Nice atmosphere, nice food, nice staff and live band! The food was really good, and the staff prepared a cake for us even we didn't tell them we are here for celebrating birthday.

if you are looking for a place to have a romantic dinner or fine dining with your loved one. This is the place. While you reserve a table for your special night (the restaurant operates in the evening only), inform them whether it is a birthday or anniversary or even a proposal, they can arrange a little bit of surprise...

The best place in Kota I could find for fine dining... it is part of the resort we were staying and we dined there the night before we were due to fly out. If we had visited earlier we certainly would have had more than one meal there.. the food was spot on. The waiters were so accommodating. There was... More

Great place for an upmarket meal with a great view over the pool or ocean. Staff are very attentive and the food was excellent. Great experience without the huge price tag. Would recommend.
