Reasons for trip

While staying on Langkawi at the Hotel Meritus Pelangi, we heard very good reports about the restaurant at the nearby Hotel Bon Ton, and immediately made a reservation (very easy). We have read about Nyonya cuisine from chefs such as Norman Musa from Ning in Manchester and the famous Chef Wan in Malaysia and when we found that Bon Ton specialised in Nyonya food, we were very keen to go. The restaurant is part of a self-contained resort in the Pantai Cenang area and is beautifully situated overlooking a stretch of water thronged with fascinating wildlife. One of the offerings (which we had on our first visit) was a Nyonya platter consisting of 9 types of food served on banana leaf preceded by a seafood antipasto – quite delicious! On our second visit, 2 days later, we had a selection of smaller dishes, all of which were excellently prepared and served. The wine list is extensive, including bottles from Europe and Australasia, and not too expensive to match wines to food for different courses, including good wine served by the glass. There is a very comfortable bar area for apéritifs and digestifs (including the recommended cocktail of the day) and the service throughout was skilled and fuss-free.
