Well known for its lush green surroundings, this restaurant has used a garden theme to enhance its ambience. There are long stemmed plants gently swaying in the breeze and a long, elaborate water feature running at least through half of the al fresco eating area. By the time it’s nightfall, glowing oil lamps cast soft shadows that result in a romantic feel. From the entrance, however, you’d never be able to tell just how large and sprawling its premises really is.

Best part is, they have an extensive menu to match it all. Ranging from Western, pseudo Mediterranean to Asian, there’s sure to be something there to please even the fussiest palate or appetite. There are steaks of Australian beef to wagyu, fish pieces that are either grilled or fried, chicken that are either roasted or fried and seafood cooked in almost every possible fashion you can think of. Then there are Asian dishes such as sizzling Mongolian beef and fried rice.

Their baked fish topped with a thick spicy sauce and sealed with melted cheese comes with young potatoes and vegetables. It’s a surprisingly pleasing combination plucking from Mediterranean and Asian flavours. While that may be a little risqué, their chicken chop of traditional flour batter is conventional enough and comes with fries and blanched vegetables. The price for main dishes starts from around RM24++ and a glass of decent house wine at RM16++.
