Set within the stylish G Hotel in Gurney Drive, the twin restaurants Sesame & Soy is a modern and contemporary Chinese restaurant with unique dual dining experience. Both the menu is extensive, with plenty of modern Chinese cuisines with a fusion of the traditional East and modern Western cooking and presentation. Together with my in-laws, we dine at the Sesame to find out whether it is the place for us to hold our family Chinese New Year Reunion dinner.
Each diner is served their own portion in a fine dining concept. This form of serving is now a common norm in restaurants in Kuala Lumpur but is still relatively new in Penang.
