“Quite average steamboat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Our tour package was inclusive of steamboat dinner & after our tour finishes, we were dropped off to this restaurant.

The food was rather average with lots of vegetables. So, if you are into veges, this is a place to go. :D There were two groups of us from the same tour company; and when the other group finishes their meals without paying for their drinks. The lady boss turned to us and asked if we know them..Our immediate response was no and she was very upset with the other group and started *$&%%...

The staff was good but the lady boss was a bit rude though..We didn't get to try other steamboat as we were only there for one night. There could be a better option for the same or higher price.

“Steamboat disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

I was comparing two restaurants in Tanah Rata. This an Gossip which is in the corner and a floor above. The food here is average. The prawns were not fresh. The dish is disguised with lots of cheap vege. Apparently the restaurant was broken into the night before and the owner (elderly couple) did not like visitors to drink and stay long in their restaurant. I sat down for lunch at 9.30pm and had my own bottle which they did not charge any corkage but by 10pm they started to close the shutters and stayed inside the restaurant while we sat outside! They were very slow in replenishing the soup and claimed that they did not have any ice. Definitely will not visit this restaurant again in future! Gossip would have been a better bet with more variety on their menu and charge RM1 cheaper for their steamboat but they do not allow customers to bring their own bottles so that's why I chose May Flower however to my peril!

“Below Average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

GH generally have ok to very good places to eat. This one is probably below average though we are ok with the food. It was quite crowded when we first saw it so we didn't go in. The Nonya Restaurant just a few doors away is actually excellent.
