The RM50 million project to revive Penang iconic Komtar from Only World Group (OWG) has slowly surface and the upper floor of 59th and 60th is completed with Seafood Buffet Restaurant and Lounge. We have the chance to visit 59 Dining Room and truly impress by the awesome 360 degree view of Penang Island.
Lower ground entrance located beside Maybank and parking slot available at Komtar Parking or opposite multi level parking but honestly it is not so convenience and safe. Parking should be one of the improvement to carry out as it play a very key role for customer experience, parking lot close all lighting at 10.30pm and only kept a few light for those floor that still has car. Honestly it is not so pleasant experience collecting car at dark.
Anyhow, we are greeted with smile and escort by security to the lift that bring us up to 59th floor.
We are greeted again at 59th Floor Entrance with a wet towel and big smile, proceed further to the main hall of 59 Dining Room and all of us are shock with the awesome view. It is spectacular!
Iconic view from Komtar 59th Floor. Highly recommended to be here before 6pm to catch the awesome view before sunset, take a round walk of the building to view 360 of Penang.
59 Dining Room are completely renovated to have Santorini theme, painted with white and light blue. Spaces table arrangement and different type of setup at every corner.

Something different in 59 Dining Room buffet, instead of pre-cook dishes they served cook on demand seafood. There is few type of fresh seafood available for selection and you can choose different type of sauce for your seafood.
Assorted cooking sauce such as Butter sauce, BBQ sauce, Cheese sauce, Spicy Chili sauce or KamHeong sauce.
Kam Heong Crab still my favorite, the sauce has very strong dried shrimp taste and it taste even better than some seafood restaurant.
Roasted Duck and Chicken with Chicken CharSiew and Steamed Chicken.
A big bowl meat, Chicken Char Siew taste so good that can easily beat Ayamas while the roasted Duck and Chicken are very moist and flavorful as well.
Fresh Local Fruits such as dragon fruits, papaya, watermelon, honey dew and longan.
Local food, is this for decoration only? Seem like no one dare to eat anything here, i wish to try the mangoesteen.
Big section of Dessert to finish up our meal, whole lot of different kind of dessert available and on top of that they do served fried ice cream and chocolate fountain.
Overall we are impress with the variety and food quality served here although we have heard some negative feedback before visit but seem like they have listen to customer and improve on it. I really enjoy dining here especially the great service from the crew, they really care for you and clean our used plate fast.
I am the lucky guy to be born on August and they even sing birthday song and gave me a big birthday cake, I feel so awkward and excited. So complicated. This must be the “highest” celebration I have so far. Thanks for the crew for your wish and birthday song, it truly memorable.
We went up to 60th Floor Lounge after dinner to enjoy the awesome view and drinks.
Live performance with alcohol, best combination.
