Joseph was our banquet manager for our wedding dinner. He was helpful and detailed throughout the process, and was pleasant to work with! Thank you Joseph for helping us hold a wonderful wedding of a lifetime!

We booked using eatigo app with 30% discount on Sat lunch. Timing is 12pm to 2.30pm. Price is $35 after discount. Nowadays it is up to individual to find the best dining discount deals at Princess Terrace. Restaurant was already crowded and full when we...arrived at 12.15pm. Utensils are available next to coffee and tea machines. Staff was quick to remove used plates. Staff was warm and helpful. The spread of food is pretty decent. The Penag Laska, Char Kway Teow, vinegar pork trotter, satay and prawns kueh pie tee were our favourite. We didnt have a chance to eat every dish! The desserts in cut size small portion is good bite with kaya jam spread. The kaya is a saver as the desserts aren't that appealing though. Do not expect cold seafood, that's not Penang cuisine.More

decent food quality but terrible service. was served warm water without asking if customer wanted warm water. fast to clear plates but you have to replace your soiled cutleries yourself at the counter if needed. supposed to have a credit card promotion but was not...informed by the staff at the cashier counter. as a result they charged full price. staff was defensive, saying that customer should ask if there was a promotion instead of them informing the customer because it was busy. but there were no customers lining up to pay at that point of time. however, the manager settled the issue already.More

We paid 48 per pax and the food was not worth the price. I dont know what i was paying for. The only thing nice was the char kuey teow and the vinegar trotter. They don't cost 48 per pax for sure. The only thing...good is the friendly service but the food is nothing worth the price. I dont suggest anyone to go there at all. Might as well eat in hawker with that kind of pricing you still have leftover for a good ice creamery.More

Couldn't beat the actual Penang taste, but still considered better as compared to most Penang food in Singapore elsewhere. Just a few good and bad points to highlight. Desserts ice kacang and chendol ice crystals were too large, prefer to be finer and softer. Fried...kway teow and laksa smells good and tasty. Didn't manage to capture pictures as busy eating 😂. But they were presentable same as display. Service was prompt and responsive.More

Hospitality is very good. CNY goodie’s should include pineapple tart. Curry chicken is ever that good. Fried Kway teow is fragrant n good. Cereal prawn served cold n batter already soft. Loh bah is good, if remove the shell for prawn crackers even better, as...the prawn is big prawn n has harder shell.More

Wanted to bring my wife who is a Malaysia to try food back home since she hasn't been back due to covid, and we were disappointed, wonderful spread and many variety to choose from, luckily we ordered just one portion of some dishes just to...get a taste of everything and we're already full after 1 round and still left we some not tried. The kids love it and had a blast trying out different types of food esp the desserts. Service was top notch as well, and the staff was really pleasant and catering to our every needs. Overall a great experience and would come again!More

I had the Penang butfet at Princess Terrace at Copthorne King's Hotel on at least four occasions in the past four weeks and I am still loving it! The Penang favorites, especially the nonya kueh and apom, was shiok! I liked the braised pork trotter...with black vinegar and dried chilli lots too! Well done, Chef Lim and Team Princess Terrace!! Kudos also to frontline service staff (notably Michelle Ho, Susanti and A-ye), who were attentive, friendly and yet discreet. Christopher Ng was still very passionate about service after so many decades on the job! Keep it up, Princess Terrace!More
