“Stunning View”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Loved the view and the setting. The meal was very good, even if the portions were a bit small - like Nouvelle Cuisine used to be. Good and discreet service. Would go back anytime.

“Lovely Ambience”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

The location of this restuarant is the best thing about it ......

The staff are excellent - very well trained and suitably groomed. The ambience in this place is great - the ID has been done very well (apart from the questionable choice of the water hazards on the floor) and there is nice attention to detail.

The food is errrrrr interesting but not terribly exciting. Its not bad by any means it just doesn't have that wow factor that I was expecting. I had the Barrumundi which was wrapped in a senseless piece of seaweed ------ which of course in my opinion spoils the taste of the fish ...... which incidentally I would not have ordered if it said "wrapped in seaweed" ...... yucks

apart from that - food is delightfully presented and timed well .............

price wise i would say its stretching the value for money proposition somewhat and you are definitely paying for more than just the food .......

“Nice atmosphere, nice food”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

This really is a very pleasant restaurant. The menu is broad and the offerings we tried were clever without being over the top and very tasty. The service was good, attentive yet discrete and the night time view if the twin towers impressive. All in all very nice and I will definitely go back

“Mediocre fine dining”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Service was ok and of course as we paid for that. Price is quite standard. Food quality is nothing to shout about, the presentation was worse than any coffee house you can find out there.

The thing that turned me off was the oil stench the minute I walked in to the terrace. For a moment I thought I was at some hawker street.

The view was indeed nice. Other than that, I do not think it is somewhere worth going.

“Lovely service, but limited view”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

From the bar area there is view of half of 1 of the Petronas towers & the restaurant smells ruin the ambiance a little (it was smokey when I went). The barmen are lovely & the drinks are nice. Service is quick & whiskey/scotch list is better than most. Okay for a drink if you're planning to eat dinner at Troika afterwards.
