Feringgi Grill at Rasa Sayang Resort - Penang, Malaysia | Restaurant Review

This Awarding Winning Restaurant is a Must.


Restaurant Category : Modern European

Feringgi Grill at Rasa Sayang Resort – Penang, Malaysia: Feringgi Grill at the Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort in Penang, Malaysia is a great place to dine in style and to pamper yourself a bit (or a whole lot) with their delectable, award-winning culinary masterpieces. The restaurant is elegant and contemporary in design, with its minimalist earth-toned interiors that are soothing to the senses. Antiques and old photographs permeate the area and serve as conversation pieces, but the better part is the breathtaking view overlooking the resort gardens. While the atmosphere is laid-back and friendly, take note that the dress code here is smart casual so don’t attempt to come in dress shorts.

Going to this restaurant without trying their ‘All Time Favorites’ is a privation and sacrilege. A preparation in itself, both dishes are made at the table: Caesar Salad made with their secret dressing recipe and the Tomato Soup–a classic from Feringgi Grill, the “original” velvety tomato soup flambéed with gin. Closest thing to heaven!

During our three-night stay at the Rasa Sayang Resort, we visited this restaurant two different times—it was simply that good! We tried all four of their soups (on two separate occasions): Oxtail Consommé, Lobster Bisque, Mushroom Soup, and Tomato Soup (as mentioned above). All the soups were refreshing but the stand-out, aside from the Tomato, was the Lobster Bisque.

For our main course, we tried the Australian Wagyu Mignon and the Roast Lam Cutlets with eggplant salad and marjoram sauce, both succulent and satisfying but not as extraordinary as the Beef Cheek (braised for six hours) with caramelized shallots and potato gnocchi, the delectableness of which was beyond words.

The wine list was amazing, carrying an extensive selection of both new and old world wines, as well as many hard-to-find vintages.

The desert, however, was a sort of anti-climax. It was one area that they did not excel in. The selection was limited and of those I tried, they were less than amazing. Still, their Chocolate Sfromatino (a type of chocolate cake) – with vanilla ice-cream and berry compote and the Vanilla Crème Brulee with pistachio biscotto were better than average.

I strongly recommend having a cocktail in the Feringgi Bar after dinner, with the live music, which I think is the best way to relax at night. Reservations are a must!

Almost perfect, but not quite, my rating for this classy and elegant restaurant in Penang is Bombastic!
