All nationalities catered for. Service good, food excellent. Quite expensive but you can become a member and save 40 percent off the buffets which are extremely good.

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Penang's coffee shops and market stalls go and relax in Rasa Sayang's Spice Garden Cafe. The local dishes are excellent though perhaps somewhat less spicy than elsewhere. I prefer sitting outside among green bushes and...More

The choice at the buffet at the Spice Market is absolutely huge. Shrimps, crab, oysters, indian curries, italian, malaysian, you name it. Everything I had was delicious. It was a little more expensive than the local restaurants, but it was worth it.

Came here for dinner and left feeling extremely happy with our choice. I think the price you pay for the quality of food is incredible even if you don't get as much variety as I have seen in other buffets.

Food was good - though not exceptionally so. Dessert offerings were rather more interesting than main courses. Lovely restaurant, but if it's a cool evening, I'd recommend sitting on the terrace to enjoy natural breezes. It's likely to be quieter if unruly children are around.

We had breakfast here three times, on each occasion, the hot food was not hot, in fact the fried eggs were almost cold. The cold food was good and there are plenty of options, but it is very crowded.

This large resort restaurant has a very large and varied range of food characteristic of diverse Asian and Western cuisines. One can eat at a "Garden table" [preferred in the evenings] or indoors. There are also "food stations" where the dishes are "cooked to order".

We were staying at the Shangri La so had breakfast here everyday. The selection was amazing and so much was freshly prepared. Would definitely recommend it.

Hi. It's better to check with the cafe. Gluten free options are relatively new in Malaysia. It would be good to email your hotel and arrange with the chef on your specialized menu. Do check out Real Food Cafe in Straits Quay... More
