Their lamb chop & lamb shank are simply delightful! I'd say this place offers 5-star quality food for an equally 5-star price!

Nice place to hang out, people watching from 2nd floor of the square tower restaurant. Not much coctails & wine list from the menu tu choose from. Prices of drinks starts from rm10 onwards. Service was pretty quick & polite. The throne room caught our attention, a must visit place after a meal...lol.

Served western food and has a good selections of fresh fruit juices with health sounded names. The food portion is big as is the prices. However, the irony is that the sauces are a tad too sweet to be healthy! Maybe the chef take recognizance of this anomaly.

The quality of the food served is not on par with the ridiculously overpriced menu. Like seriously way disappointed! This establishment seems like it has seen better days. Don't be fooled just because the restaurant lies within a historical monument, you'll end up regretting it. Seems like there is a growing dissatisfaction with this establishment over time. Another thing I... More

Food was extremely disappointing. Calamari was chewy and soggy. Lobster tastes frozen. Lamb also feels frozen and is untrimmed. Worse of all, the owner/manager(?) is rude/obnoxious; shouting at people outside the restaurant for god knows what. Is also rude to the staff in front of customers. Took half an hour to take our order despite an empty restaurant. TLDR: Low... More

Went there for dinner with few friends, the food is overpriced for the given atmosphere. Not worth the trip. The staff service is poor and impolite. I SAW a notice board in front of the shop to no pokemon players which I found disturbing as I'm a player myself.

Been here and the food was decent for the price. But I've traveled to multiple places and the food truly could not compare. Would give it a solid 3 star but it does not deserve it. How they treat future/potential customers or majority of a generation with no respect is appalling. Claiming that only serve 'real' food to 'Real people',... More

We went for dinner last week, the place is really nice, very well decorated. The tower has a lot of history, it was once even a police station. Given the heritage status of the tower, the owners have maintained much of the original fixtures. Food in general was pricey and tasted okay. We had lobster for dinner, it was fine,... More
