di atas sungei

Di Atas Sungei is Malay for 'Above the River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. With no menu, guests are guided by the resort's Menu Masters, experts in local cuisine, who provide a distinctive dining experience using only the freshest produce of the highest quality. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.
