I am always looking forward to eating fine food in Ipoh. Fine Dining, as the name suggests, offers diners three main areas of focus: a well-written menu without any picture of food, patrons being treated like kings and queens by waiters in suits and the most elegant dining atmosphere in a high-priced restaurant. To date, none of the restaurants in Ipoh fulfils the above criteria, including today's featured restaurant - Citrus Wine & Dine. However, I would very much like to compliment their food which I think is far more worth eating and paying for than the Perak Sultan's favourite eating place (Ind.......)
Back to the question, can we classify Citrus Wine & Dine as a fine dining restaurant? When I think of fine dining, the images of crisp tablecloths, live classical music in the background and a full course meals served according to sequence come to mind. Perhaps, today's fine dining concept has evolved a little resulting from the fusion of cuisines of various genre. Well, owing to the eclectic blend of food Citrus serves and the limited choice we have in Ipoh, I think it is not a bad idea to call it a fine dining restaurant.
