It is reported that the restaurant is undergoing renovation works as part of the transformation of Sunway Resort property at a figure of around RM240 million, which is expected to be complete in Q4 2021. Ramsay’s first restaurant in the country located at the resort’s lobby level will feature, among others, iconic contemporary interiors, floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the lagoon, and private dining rooms for intimate events.
Ramsay explained that he decided to open his first restaurant in Malaysia because of the incredible growth Malaysia is having and the great energy about this part of the world. “I’ve always loved Asia whether it be for filming or restaurants,” he says in an email interview.
The celebrity chef became famous after being the face of popular competitive cooking and food TV shows, including Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell, and MasterChef.
