To be fair- we stayed at the Le Meridien and had a nice experience the first set of dates and a terrible one after we returned from an excursion.
We went to Flames on NYE for their set 5 course dinner. We let our daughter get the set too for the first time. The cost was 250++MYR/person.
3 of our daughters courses arrived a full 10 minutes before ours- she wasn't comfortable eating without us so it just sat.
The poached chicken appetizer was still very pink and tasted like what I would imagine raw chicken would taste like. Everything else was ok until the main course- which arrived cold. The stuffed zucchini was appallingly bad. The steak tasted ok- but was cold.
There was another family with children that arrived after us- they had eaten their entire meal, settled the bill and were gone before our daughter for her dessert- ours following 10 minutes later. It took nearly 3 hours for our meal- our son did not manage very well while we waited roughly 15-30 minutes between courses.
Flames is overpriced- guessing that has to do with being in an expensive hotel- they were seriously understaffed for a very busy NYE, the food was mediocre at best and the F&B manager really doesn't seem to care if you give him business or not.
Our bill was over $400.00usd with food and drinks.
I'm sure they get it right sometimes- it was a very busy night- and I'm already a bit jaded by our poor experience with the hotel. Just so disappointing to spend so much for NYE dinner and walk away feeling completely dissatisfied.
