We relax by the pool while enjoying the foods from the Rooftop Restaurant. From the wood-fired grill, the Five chicken wings are tasty. All grilled items come with homemade salsa verde, grilled pita bread, salad & pilaf rice.
Big meal after swimming session by the pool.
The Rooftop Restaurant and poolside Bar & Grill sharing the same menu so you will choose to have the foods at the pool or inside the Rooftop Restaurants. For dinner, We tried the Sabah tiger prawn marinated in lemon & rosemary which is fresh with the taste of sea and herbs. The menu at Rooftop Restaurant is still limited for the time being and we decided to have more foods at the Urban Kitchen on the ground floor.
