A SOPHISTICATED DINING EXPERIENCE

Majestically decorated with gold and satin interior, Genting Grand Dining boasts a 56-seat dining area, a small bar and a cozy lounge. It’s a sanctuary for a contemporary dining experience that is exclusive and simply divine.


At Genting Grand Dining, one feels ensconced in the lap of luxury. The latest gem to the food and beverage lineup at the resort, the interior design is sophisticated with a clever use of soft fabrics, Italian marble, leather and wood textures, complete with coppery lighting and undertones. It boasts a 56-seat dining area, a small bar, and a cozy lounge that comfortably seats 36 people. Located on one side is a private seating area equipped with a large plasma TV, ideal for intimate gatherings with family and friends.


Genting Grand Dining prides itself for its exceptional service. The service crew at the outlet has undergone training at the world-renowned Magnum Butler Academy, ensuring top notch service with a much-welcome personalised touch. It also goes without saying that the food here is impeccable. Serving mostly contemporary Cantonese cuisine, the restaurant is open 24 hours offering different menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with an all-day menu available as well.

Hidden Abalone in Crouching Ballotine Chicken with Brocollini and White Mushroom

Hidden Abalone in Crouching Ballotine Chicken with Brocollini and White Mushroom comes highly recommended. A signature dish at Genting Grand Dining, it is a creative dish of abalone stuffed in a chicken thigh paired with a flavourful sauce.


Portuguese Style Baked Fish

Another signature dish is the Portuguese Style Baked Fish, which is a recipe by the resort’s Group Chef, Oliver Lopez. Baked and served in a foil packet, the fillet of codfish is fresh, flaky and moist. The subtle flavour of the fish melds with the tangy, mildly spicy marinade and is delicious with steamed rice.


Braised Abalone with Curry Sauce

For something fusion and ambrosial, order the Braised Abalone with Curry Sauce. The curry is intense and rich while the abalone is firm and juicy, utter bliss. Considered to be the greatest delicacy of all the shellfish, abalone is also considered to be a difficult meat to cook. At Genting Grand Dining, the Chef is certainly a master and both abalone dishes were sublime.


Steamed Chicken Rice with Ginger

If you’re craving for a taste of home, you can’t go wrong with the Steamed Chicken Rice with Ginger. The ginger brings with it a subtle warmth and makes this dish simply appetising.

Tucked away at the back of the restaurant, the bar offers a selection of wines that include Grand Crus like Château Margaux, Château Latour, Château Lafite, Château Petrus, Mouton Rothschild as well as other vintages from all over the world to go with your meal.



Chef Andy Seng

At the helm of Genting Grand Dining’s kitchen is multi-award-winning Master Chef Andy Seng. With 32 years of experience under his belt, he is known for his innovative and quality creations so guests can rest assured knowing that they are in good hands.

Even though he had harboured a love for food since young, it never crossed his mind that he would one day become a Chef. He started out as a lift mechanic before his friend, who was a Chef, persuaded him to work at the same restaurant as part of the service crew. It was during that time that he honed his culinary skills and finally turned to cooking for a living. Chef Andy Seng has since won several awards, most recently the Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards (HAPA) 2013 – 2015 Malaysia Series where he was awarded with the HAPA Masterchef (Asia), Master of Authenticity.

Chef Andy Seng has indeed come a long way but says that there is still so much for him to discover. Committed to his guiding principle that customers are the priority, he is constantly on the lookout for new ideas and adapting to the changing needs and tastes of his customers.

5. Play hide and seek in the Cave Drawing maze
Acorns, acorns, and more acorns! Stepping into the maze is like falling into Scrat’s dreamland!
