“Mediocre & over-hyped!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Was told to try out this establishment. Service is average and the 'no-smiles' on the staff faces hints that either their underpaid & overworked or the management sucks. The food is good but nothing to shout about really. It's a little bit more pricey than other outlets selling almost the same cuisine. I'm not sure if I would swing by this restaurant again...but who knows.

“Not Too Bad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Nice place for some food as the portioning is quite filling and the drinks are very nice too. Staffs are OK although most of them are quite robotic. Clearing up and cleaning up is quite slow at times. Wi-fi is not so stable. Do get a seat in the air-conditioned area as at times, the al fresco is quite hot and humid.

“Good Food but Expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

It's a high end branded restaurant. The food was tasty and well prepared. The prices are quite high. Hence only go when you have any special occasion or don't know where to spend your extra money!

“Local Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Nothing to shout about and slightly Pricy.
Food is not tasty at all.
If you are looking for local food, I suggest normal food court or hawker center which is more tasty and cheaper.
Paying for the environment - outside seating instead of food.

“Pappa Rich at All Seasons Place Penang”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

Food is generally OK. Decor and atmosphere is good. Slightly pricey for the food (quality and portion) if compared to James Foo Western Food which is at the same place but at the other corner. Maintain the prices for the F & B but increase in portion sizes and quality and the place will be doing even better.
