The breakfast here is buffet and lunch and dinner is a la carte. The breakfast menu is a combination of western and asian food which compliments my palette well. The service is good as well.

Nice and friendly staff and good service - most people were Asian so there was plenty of Asian styled foods and Western foods. Open plan dining with very average decor (I would call it tacky but it would depend on your taste), and clean tables.

Our family came here on a Friday night, and was surprised to find the nice setting tugged inside a hotel. It was not busy probably hidden away from Hobson Street, downtown. But the food was authentically Malaysian. We ordered Assam fish, Nestrum prawns. They were so yummy we finish them all. I particularly like the way they do their bean... More

My friends and I booked in on a Saturday night for a BYO. Corkage was cheap ($3.50) so we decided to head along. We saw the sign for the restaurant however were confused at first and didn't actually realize it was in the Auckland city hotel! The place is huge! Would be perfect for large group or work dos, however... More

My husband enjoyed his meal. I asked for something gluten free and they were pretty clueless. Finally suggesting stir fried vegetables. I asked for tofu with the vegetables. The dish was pretty good, but very little tofu. Obviously not somewhere I would go again, but my husband was happy. Nice big restaurant, pleasant environment except for the nearby game tables.
