We ate breakfast here each morning of our stay & were always welcomed with a friendly greeting. I have no qualms about the service standards - I thought they were all fantastic. They're friendly, smiley & very prompt. I'm surprised to read other reviews saying otherwise. Definitely suggest the omelettes as they make them to order while you wait. The... More

We visited for lunch a la carte during the week having enjoyed a Sunday buffet there a month or so back. Positives: Very good service, nice grounds and nice location. Food is very, very average at best. We ordered 2 entrees and 4 mains. Entrees were passable but the papadams / prawn crackers served initially were stale. My tandoori biryani... More

This restaurant seemed to have two teams of service staff , one team wore a "courtesy tag" and they were hospitable while the rest seemed unaware what's expected of the service staff in the hotel industry . My husband and I went for an early breakfast on the first day at 720am. There are five staff at the reception, all... More

The buffet breakfast in this place is good but I have had better in other places around the world. There is a good variety of food appealing to tourists from around the world as well as local breakfast dishes. The menu for lunch and dinner is good and it offers a variety of cuisines. There is a selection of Malaysian... More

The environment is good, but the service and facilities need to be adjusted. Food of the breakfast was not fresh, they was not always keep take of the buffet station when I was dine there. Is a very good and relax place but service was not that standard.

Visited during their Sunday brunch and food was pretty basic and mediocre as far as hotel brunches is concerned. Penang Prawn Mee is better off the street; seafood prawns/mini-lobster was soaked in butter so lost the flavor of the seafood. Wide selection of cakes, but none really fantastic.Wouldn't recommend as there are better places for brunch in Penang.

Food: Excellent. An abundance of choices. The breakfast buffet consists of local delights and also the usual international breakfast fare. We had breakfast here two mornings in a row during our stay at the Parkroyal Hotel and I can assure you that you will not get bored with the food. Recommendations: Make sure to order a freshly made omelet at... More
