Dining at the top of that particular place has always been a great experience as it makes you feel like you are at the top of the world and usually it is an exclusive dining experience.
Previously, I had the honor to review at the tip of Penang Hill for its dinner. This time, instead of being at the tip of a hill, it is at the tip of the tallest building in Penang which is KOMTAR.
The panoramic view from the top is just fantastic and breathtaking. The feeling of reaching the sky and looking down from the above is just awe-inspiring. This is Penang’s latest addition to its list of landmarks – The Top – a revitalised urban icon, conceptualised and brought to life by Only World Group Holdings Berhad (OWG).
Upon the arriving we were greeted by all their friendly staffs.
The modern chandelier welcomes guests to its grand entrance.
Located at the Level 59 & 60 of KOMTAR Tower, 59Sixty is an exciting casual fine-dining restaurant and bar concept that is set to elevate the dining experience in Penang to new heights.
For those couples wanted to have some privacy, you can also opt for the dimmer area with candle-lit tables for couples.
Not just the view is in panoramic vision, even the buffet spread is also in a panoramic display where you will be walking round the restaurant selecting the food of your choice.
The new chef, Jason from New Zealand is in charge of the food here. There are also many supporting kitchen staff with passion to serve their best to their customers.
The restaurant at Level 59 which has a seating capacity of 450, is designed along Mediterranean themes that offers a glorious buffet spread that serves both local and International cuisine, including Chinese, Nyonya, Western, Middle Eastern, Japanese and seafood delicacies.
Its wide variety of truly Asian ﬂavour crabs offers an unforgettable experience that never ceases to delight the patrons‘ taste buds. Patrons can enjoy an experience whilst savouring sumptuous cuisines amidst a fabulous vista of the urban landscape which is an implausible experience like nowhere else in Penang.
A wine and cigar bar at Level 60 is all about comfort and pleasure. It offers an eclectic selection of wines from around the globe as well as the ﬁnest of international cigars in a cool setting. A cosy and deliberate dark interior yet intimate setting with large, tinted windows that offer a breath taking view of the twinkling lights of the city, this Cigar lounge section of 59Sixty is a perfect place for that evening getaway from this little busy city. Patrons can enjoy wide varieties of wine and concoction of cocktails amid luxurious surroundings.
Adding an elegant touch to The Top is the Banquet Hall. A pillar-less event premise which is an ideal venue for private, social and corporate events and functions as it is equipped with the state of the art LED Backdrop to make any event theme a reality. The versatile hall can accommodate up to 1,200 guests at any one time. Rest assured, The Top Banquet all is well paired with an aspiring culinary team to create and innovate gastronomic experiences for the patrons.
Overall, the variety of the food is abundant and it is impossible to taste each and every food in the buffet spread. Most importantly, the previous misconception of the food has been improvised and the standard is quite on par with its competitors now. Besides having quality food you also get to enjoy wonderful view of Penang, which is a strong selling point to its customers. However, the price of RM168 nett per pax is slightly on the high side. I will definitely consider this place if I have any special occasion to celebrate.
