The Return of Lemon Garden Cafe @ Shangri La Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Before my visit to Shangri-La Hotel, I did a little asking around. My question; have you been to the Lemon Garden? 9 out of 10 persons I spoke to said yes, and of these 16 said it was great (the other 7 were bystanders who joined in abruptly to share their experience)! It was therefore with high expectations that I descended unto the famous landmark hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Friday evening for a visit.
