The architecture really evoked a sense of the past. They have made the most of the building, a range of businesses eg restaurant, bar, tourist info centre. Even the toilets were amazing!!!

I like the way how this historical building was preserved and turned into a stylish though minimalistic restaurant. We had nice and tasty lunch and had to resist to grab one of their deliciously presented cakes. Next Time :-)

Really nice and peaceful surrounding, there is a cafe inside that is worth a visit to have coffee/ tea and cake in the afternoon - highly recommended salted caramel cheesecake.

The restaurant has a nice ambiance. Just located next to Merdeka Mall. They serve a host of Asian food and fusion food. Had the pot pie with beef rendang but it was dry. The beef pieces were dry as there was no gravy in it....More
