It’s no mystery that Charcoal specialises in charcoal-grilled items. Pick from meats like rack of lamb, rib eye, tenderloin, short ribs and black Angus tomahawk (for sharing), all grilled to achieve a distinct smokiness. Seafood options are wild Sarawak garoupa in turmeric and sea salt, Sabah rock lobster with ginger and coriander, and tiger prawns with kaffir lime and lemongrass. Even the vegetables appear to have been smoked, like the baked stuffed eggplant and bitter gourd stuffed with seafood. Charcoal keeps the theme going even in its desserts, with offerings like grilled fruits with caramel, and tapioca with glutinous rice and mango.

Went to Charcoal for Valentines day dinner. Greeting was very average-seated in a room with 2 other couples next to a large family table. The rose on the table was nice. Could have provided a candle. it was very dark. No menu for alcohol until requested. Music was intrusive and after a while very annoying -atmosphere more like an airport lounge. Food was ok-very hotel and not quite as expected. The hotel lobby is great but the part of the restaurant we were seated in was very disappointing. No one even asked if everything was ok. We were given questionnaire to fill in on the way out!
