Giving you the pleasure of eating, this place provides you with the most down-to-earth dining ambiance, along with an eye-opening experience of squeezing through the typically overcrowded restaurant.

HK/Macau 2011 - We missed our flight!

Never had I ever imagined myself being ‘granted’ the opportunity to experience one of the most unfortunate stories commonly takes place in the airport – missing a flight. We, five in a family, had arrived in the airport two hours in advance, somehow didn’t make it in time for our flight. On that remarkable day, we missed our flight because of long lines. The drop off area at Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) airport was overflowing with passengers waiting to stamp their passports. The malfunctioned e-gates, the shortage of custom officials, the exceptionally huge lines … … had led to a painful lesson for 16 passengers, including my whole family.

Needless to say, despite pleading with the airport staff and yelling like maniacs at the top of our lungs, we didn’t manage to gain entry to the aircraft but to watch it leave with 16 untaken seats. Having gotten up from the wrong side of the bed, we were forced to fork out an astronomical price for the tickets to catch the next flight to Macau. There, with much frustration, sad, regret and heartache, was another 6 hours of waiting.

Consequently, instead of arriving in Macau for breakfast, we landed at 4.10 in the afternoon!

A Legendary English Restaurant

The 200-year-old building, together with its garden, portrays a stylish décor and picturesque lawn, while its restaurant being richly decorated with period furnishing. Throughout the year, Suffolk House caters for social and corporate functions and events, in spite of its prominent status as a top choice for English Afternoon Tea in Georgetown.

Apart from that, Suffolk House is also the winner of the Award of Distinction in the 2008 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation.
