Located right next to the IOI City Mall and across the road from the Palm Garden Golf Course, the restaurant draws not only in-house guests, but a crowd of leisure seekers and office workers in the area too. Most visitors were local from what we could presume and so we watched carefully to see what their plates were filled with. Here’s what we spied and tried.

At breakfast, chefs at the egg station, noodle station and local bread (think roti canai and thosai) grill were kept cooking non-stop. Our two loves of the morning were the thosai, cooked to be crisp on the edges while maintaining softness within, and a local take on eggs benedict. The Latest Recipe version saw a poached egg, nicely runny, perched atop a muffin, drizzled with hollandaise sauce and finished up with a generous wallop of spicy sambal. Boy this is one wake-me-up call for early morning!

All the regular expectations are found on the buffet in a rotating mix of recipes. An appetizers section with fresh seafood, salads and a teppan grill is where many start off. Our favourites here were a quickly cooked batch of prawns and mussels in a light chilli seasoning.

The western section sees pasta cooked a la minute to guests’ preference, and some thinly crusted pizzas recently taken from the wood-fired oven just seconds before serving. Lamb, beef, fish and chicken all rotate through some European and western style recipes too.

The noodle and rice station is a must visit. The chicken rice with the three accompanying sauces, and choice of roasted or steamed meat, might just be some of the best we’ve had in Kuala Lumpur. We felt assured that we were on the right track when we noted many tables also with large helpings.

Chicken Rice

The Indian line-up is not bad either with its breads and curries. The don’t miss here however is the biryani rice with abundant amounts of cashews and succulent tandoori chicken.

Saving room for dessert we didn’t even make it to the Malay barbecue, which was serving up stick after stick of satay in what looked like a thick luscious peanut sauce.

Chocolate Fountain

But, yes, space for dessert (and a little bit of cheese) is always wise especially when there are so many temptations available. Fresh fruit, a chocolate fountain, ais kacang, and row after row of mini pies, cakes and pots of goodness make the choosing lots of fun.
