After reading other TripAdvisor reviews on Sweetwater, we ventured and were rewarded. Staff were welcoming and friendly, sharing with us the day's special. On our virgin visit, we ordered the specials wagyu beef and black cod. The black cod was cooked to perfection. As for the wagyu, overall, it was nice, with the sides crisped but the texture of the...

I was there with my wife and a friend a while ago and we... More

I was invited to a private birthday party of 20 at this restaurant and loved the whole experience. We were given the private dining area upstairs. The entree of bread/bread sticks and dips was good. The mushroom soup was excellent as it was not pureed and I could still taste the fine pieces. It was a full dish by itself.... More

We went there to celebrate our boyfriend birthday on March 23. It was awesome. We booked before coming to see if we can get something gluten free for him since its not easy to find gluten free food in restaurants here. We asked about the pizza and they can do it for us. So we got him pizza and he... More

I love the place. Feel so good inside! The staff is lovely! Always around if you need something. Same goes for the owners (Hans & Stephany) The food is one of the best in Johor! I recommend the carpaccio with a glass of red wine! The price is a bite expensive for the diner... but it's a real good deal... More
