“Nice food but a bit over worked”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We decided to go here after a very long day (leaving at 5.30am, flying to the other side of Borneo and arriving back at 10pm). It was pretty nice food and the serve was good. My only criticism (and this is being really picky) is that the food was a bit overworked. Italian food is so simple but they made it complicated and as a result it wasn't as enjoyable as it could have been.

“Good Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Birthday dinner for my husband. Opted for outside table - we were the only one's enjoying the outdoors on a huge verandah. Good quality food, we had lamb loin & beef lasagne (wish it had been served with small green salad). After already consuming dessert we were presented with a birthday treat of cheesecake & fresh fruit & ice-cream served in a mini igloo. Lovely surprise - pity we were so full.

“Great Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Staying in the Shangri-la resort we wanted a special meal for our honeymoon. Meal was fantastic in every way, average starter price £5-£6, average main course £15-£18, wine is quite expensive but that is the same everywhere. I picked the catch of the day which was tenderlion of beef served with fresh lobster and vegetables, 95 riggit which is £19.50, definately the best meal we have had in borneo

“Great Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

We had two dinners here during our last visit and found both service and food to be very good. On Friday nights they have a market special where the restaurant manager and chef visit the local markets in the morning to present that night. I chose the whole steamed baby groper and it was superb served with Sabah green vegetables it was the best fish dish i have every had.(well done Charlie and Chef Hadrian)
