                      The food was okay, we love the ambiance, the concept of dining in d library, we thought “Asrah” (our server if we’re not mistaken) did a wonderful , professional yet friendly job, we can say, they could probably get a star if Michelin comes to KL (who knows) ….. We were looking for wine pairings though, they only offered whiskey pairing that night, we ended up ordering 2 bottles of wine, we would love to have a service pacing kinda relax next time, not a little bit rush, other than that everything was really good.

                      The food was excellent and wonderfully prepared and presented, although the testing menu was changed from accompanying wines to accompanying whiskys.
