“Rip-off, but they have a Monopoly...”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We paid AUD$350 for the 5 people (2 adults 3 small kids) buffet and were recommended to "upgrade" to the window seat at extra cost, despite the restaurant being **nearly empty** on the night we went. Then, of course, the mandatory photo-shoot on ground floor and again on the restaurant floor, as well as a rip-off "3x the price" return taxi fare upon exit, just to wring out the last of your wallet.

Match this with the 2 hour dining time-limit, the now-legendary "August K.L. Haze" aka "Smoke-Cloak" which no-one tells you about, and you have the recipe for disappointment.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. This isn't that time, but you do get to say "I went there", which is more than the bloke who kept his $400 can say...

“ruined by an unclean city”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

View from the top would have been brilliant had the city not been so smoggy and dirty. Good views of the forest and could see the petronas towers, that was about it. The small rooftop garden and bridge was more exciting than being up the tower. A positive was that there was no time limit on the viewing deck so was able to find the best of the worst views.
