59sixty @ KOMTAR Penang

Being the tallest building in Penang and also the 6th tallest building in Malaysia, KOMTAR stands tall at the heart of George Town, Penang and recently renovated the top floors to expand it into F&B & leisure businesses. 
In my memory, I remember it was once called the  云中阁餐厅 located on the 58th and 59th floor of Komtar if I'm not mistaken. It used to be one of the most popular restaurant in Penang and also one favourite restaurant for wedding. 

59sixty has taken over the slots and  reopened their business in the mid of this year and I know that the feedback was very bad due to the bad service and bad food.
To clear its bad name, 59sixty has recently brought over a new chef from New Zealand.

Chef Jason Hall from New Zealand recently joined 59sixty as executive chef to bring back the reputation of 59sixty. He has got 25years of culinary experience and previously worked in many of the big hotels like Sheraton group and some other well known restaurants in London and New Zealand specialized in western & seafood. He is good in developing all sorts of cooking for seafood and focus on new culinary skills for seafood.
