Move on to live goreng goreng corner which highlights Malaysian snacks such as Pisang Goreng, Cempedak Goreng, Ubi Kayu Goreng, Ubi Keledek Goreng and more. Cempedak Goreng is the must have, as it is rarely seen on the street nowadays.

Get celebrated with special dish of the day, rotating daily and includes Balinese Baked Fish, Slow Roasted turkey Galantine with Fruit Chutney, Wok Fried Seafood with Spicy Chili Bean Sauce, Roasted Chicken with Kuzi Gravy Stuffed with Mix Nuts and Portuguese Style Baked Fish amongst others.

Japanese Live Counter is noteworthy too, especially the Teppanyaki section that keeps drawing queue, while the chef patiently stir fried one after another portion of prawns, chicken and beef then churn out to diners.

The prawns is a must try, fresh and bouncy with distinct sweetness, complement by a dollop of creamy sauce plus a pinch of pepper salt that draws more flavours. Chicken is equally good, tender and locked with moisture and juiciness.

Sushi Counter

Sashimi

Chinese cuisines focuses on Fragrant Hainanese Chicken Rice with a choice of steamed chicken, honey sesame glazed chicken and roasted chicken. Their steamed chicken is a hit and miss, as it tastes delicately smooth, succulent at the first round. So we had another helping but it turns out to be a bit bland, fall short of flavours.

Dim Sum was not bad, as you get choices of char siew pau, black pepper siew mai, carrot siew mai, crystal dumpling and har gau. Noodles station brings you four types of noodles namely Asam Laksa, Wantan Noodle, Lam Mee and Prawns Noodles.
