Sheraton Imperial's lounge is perfectly peaceful during the day, but don't come here after 9pm, since that's when a raucous live band makes conversation impossible.

Pavilions serves finger food that's slightly more creative than expected _ though that excludes these packets of peanuts & honey almonds.

Skip the oysters; they completely lacked the sweetness and succulence associated with truly good ones. These were likely brought over from the hotel's buffet restaurant. Served here with baby cress wholemeal sandwiches.

Corn chips with guacamole & tomato salsa. Forgettable.

Honey-glazed chicken wings stuffed with sticky rice & mushrooms. Nicely done; the meat would have been tender and juicy enough on its own, but the rice made it texturally interesting, while the earthy mushrooms boosted the flavor a few notches.

Duck & sweet potato curry puffs. More stuffing and less crust might improve this (even though the filling tasted bland and not as unique as it sounded). The plus point is that these seemed healthier and less greasy than regular curry puffs.

Minced prawn & scallop skewers. A chunky, meaty treat of fresh-tasting seafood. Accompanied by 'wasabi lotion' that packed a powerful punch.

During happy hours, it's buy one, free one for glasses of the house wine.

Imperial Martini & Lychee On A Stick (bombay sapphire, lychee, wild strawberries).

Banana Margarita & Spicy Madagascar Margarita. Cocktails here are worthwhile.

Pavilions Lounge,
Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.


  1. I never been to this part of the hotel before! And your post pointed it out!

  2. michelle: yeah, most of us tend to head to their italian restaurant, villa danieli, or their buffet outlet, essence, or their chinese one, celestial court...

  3. Honey almonds.... Yums...

    Actually I've been wondering why we eat so much packaged/processed food of late, other than it's more affordable, convenient, has longer shelf-life...

    OK, so I guess that's why. :P

  4. Spicy Madagascar Margarita! Yum! My cravings are coming back again after reading this!

  5. Banana Margarita? Hmmmm...
    *curious but thinks it sounds kinda weird*

  6. looks like the food there is a hit and miss. But i still find it funny that this place is called pavilions!!

  7. I accidentally bumped into this place when I took the wrong lift to the business tower section :P
    today's the last day for the SPG... utilise it for the very last time!!!

  8. Eiks.. No wonder tis is not popular! ;)

  9. joe: both hits and misses! :D
    lfb: sometimes (only sometimes) processed food also tastes yummier? there's probably something in it that makes it addictive too =)
    lemongrass: can make the cocktail yourself, if u have the ingredients! :D
    j: the weirdest one would be a durian margarita (but no, i've never seen that before, heheh)
    eiling: we might get it mixed up with the shopping mall! =)
    leo: actually, my office is in the business tower section! drop by if u're in the area next time :D
    tng: popular for drinks actually! :D
