With the debut of Malaysia and Southeast Asia’s first Hyatt Centric branded property, Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu also saw the entry of a new level of dining experience in downtown Kota Kinabalu.
ON22 restaurant offers guests a myriad of creative flavours, immersing vibrant local Sabahan palate with exclusive menus, curated especially for savvy explorers and food adventurers.
Featuring indoor and outdoor patio seating, ON22’s ‘Dining in the Gardens’ theme showcases three distinct spaces: ‘Sea-Forest,’ framed with sweeping sights of the sea and the lush hills; ‘Wood Garden,’ where the décor and greenery is inspired by the tropical rainforest in Borneo; and ‘Dry Garden’ with its large boulders, stone floors and cinnamon-coloured wooden panels, which pay tribute to Sabah’s rich biodiversity and the mighty Mount Kinabalu. Guests can choose between the magnificent sea views, enchanting green hills, or the tranquil garden to enjoy their meals from a menu that delights all foodies as it’s an invitation to a multitude of tastes.
The friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere of ON22 Restaurant at Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu will entice diners to try the restaurant's authentic modern Asian dishes, served sharing-style. All dishes are cooked to perfection using premium ingredients from sustainable sources. From locally-inspired dishes like Lamb Shank Rendang, Cheeky Masaman, to Asian interpretations like Curry Cauliflower, Grilled Sweet Miso Pumpkin and other delights like Grilled Chili Lobster Pasta and Salmon Laksa, guests are truly spoilt for choice with bold and unique local flavours that will make you fall in love at the first bite.
Headed by Executive Sous Chef, Ho Jun Yip, ON22’s menus are carefully curated and personalised to embody the hotel’s way of ensuring shared worthy experiences. Chef Jun says, “We want to take the dining experience here in Kota Kinabalu to the next level. With the location being so ideal for seafood, we also want to make it sustainable by supporting local suppliers and fishermen. At present, we aim to import less as we want our guests to truly experience the taste of Kota Kinabalu through their dining.
