Balsam Buffet Restaurant

The Balsam Buffet Restaurant was built in the early 1970s. This beautiful rock structure building and restaurant has been visited by many travellers to the Kinabalu Park, as for many years it is the only eatery in the Kinabalu Park Headquarters. Located about 40 feet below the administration office, the restaurant lies at a forest area which has a perfect view of the mountain under a clear sky. Many of the older folks will remember this restaurant with a kopitiam setting and had a very cozy fire place surrounded by sofas. Visitors often hanged around at the fire place for comfort at night, when temperature was much colder in the 70s, when there were plenty of trees around. After the taking over by Sutera Harbour Management group, around 2000, this place has been transformed into a high class restaurant. Today the interior of the building receives a much better detail in design and setting.
